I spent way too much of today looking at some of the blogs that are mentioned in the Israellycool blog that are up for nominations in one of the many annual awards given throughout the blogosphere. It is worth looking through the nominees and browsing - some are political, some are personal, but all are either Israeli or Jewish (or both.)
I was astonished at how many are out there now, and my tiny, little-read news blog seems a bit redundant with all of the other ones in the 'sphere.
A good place to start is the nominations for "best post". I also liked the personal Israeli blogs which describe Israeli society in ways you could never get from newspapers.
And, no, I'm not trolling for a nomination!
