I just got off the phone with my newest blogosphere friend, Avi Montigny, Project Coordinator of JewsByChoice.org.
JBC, for those who have not yet had the pleasure of visiting the site, is a group blog written by a group of Jews of a variety of denominations, all of whom happen to be converts. The JBC blog has quickly become one of my favorites in a crowded field of Jewish blogs competing for my attention in my RSS reader every day.
But Avi had troubling news for me. Try as he might, he is having trouble finding liberal religious bloggers to contribute to JBC. Avi is particularly interested in keeping a host of diverse bloggers blogging on at JewsByChoice.org.
So Avi came to me looking for help finding some converts to blog with him. So I’m coming to y’all. If you are (or if you know anyone who is) a Reform Jewish convert who might be interested in blogging about issues facing the convert community and the larger Jewish community, about positively defining yourself as a Reform Jew, and about Jewish pluralism, AVI WANTS YOU!
And the size of the audience is pretty good too. Avi tells me that JBC just topped 10,000 page views per month, which is a major milestone for a blog on any topic, especially such a niche topic as JBC has.
So if you’re interested, or you think you might be interested, but want to learn more, you can email Avi at jbctalk at gmail dot com or of the JBC Contact Page. Think about it, you gerei tzedek!
And remember the immortal words of Sefer Ruth, “Your bloggers will be my bloggers and your internet will be my internet.”
