Folks I have tried hard not to remark on the JIBs but I just can’t refrain any longer. The real point of the JIBs is to promote Jewish/Israeli blogs, to help provide greater exposure than currently exists.
The thing that I have always found distasteful about the JIBs is the campaigning that takes place. Some people are so concerned about winning all they lose their ability to blog about anything else.
But if winning means that much to you than I guess that is how it goes.
