I’m back – hopefully

February 25, 2008

I’ve received many emails from some of my loyal readers and many new ones who happened upon the site asking why I haven’t updated the site in close to a year. Between work and personal problems, I just couldn’t find the time (or energy) to update the blog.

I’m back though, but I am going to make a slight change to my blog. I will still be bringing you all the great news about Israel, and what kinds of great things are going on in the country. But I want this to be a happy blog, not a crying blog. While I feel the need to represent my country and show what we’re really like, I don’t want to get into huge ideological discussions that cannot be won by anyone.

This isn’t to say that I won’t be posting controversial materials, nor does it mean that I won’t be posting “news” events (such as the enormous amount of rockets launched at Israel), but it will no longer be the focus.

That said, I’d like to point y’all towards my friend’s blog at Benji is a hilarious comedian, and if you’re an American Israeli – or any type of oleh hadash (new immigrant) – it’s a great read.

I’ll be posting some recent news soon. Thanks everyone for your concern and emails and desire for more information.

Have a wonderful Monday! (In Israel, Monday is like Tuesday – Tuesday is humpday!)
