The blog has weathered my losing free time in my new job. Readership is continuing to be strong, averaging some 150,000 pageviews per month.
EoZ is growing in influence. In just this past quarter I have been quoted by The Jerusalem Post, The Algemeiner, Tablet, Israel Today, Chicago Now, CAMERA (twice), The Jewish Press, The Jewish Week, Arutz-7, Public Service Europe, and Commentary, to name a few.
My posts include news scoops, satire, infographics, posters, cartoons, media bias exposure, original videos, contests, history, research, exclusive interviews and analysis. I try not to be boring.
I also need to thank Ian for sending me an excellent daily linkdump. The linkdumps ensure that every major story about Israel gets covered on the blog even if I don't have time to go in depth on some issues.
One imminent milestone: Some time this week I will publish my 15,000th post!

I can't promise anything, but I am told that those who donate to this blog have an easier time fasting on Yom Kippur. :)
Thanks as always for your support! I am always humbled by how many people - young and old, conservative and liberal, male and female - read and enjoy this blog, and I hope to be able to continue to provide quality content to everyone in the future. (And thanks also to those who retweet, "Like", "+1", Reddit and otherwise spread my posts around the Web.)
