2007 JIB Awards – Full Steam Ahead

The Third Annual Jewish and Israeli Blog Awards are on their way. The dedicated organizers have already put together a spanking new website, and seem to be progressing along nicely.

But of course, as Bagel Blogger explains, help would be nice.

We have managed to gain some good corporate Sponsors, more are needed.

Each day we sail forward solving navigation problems with our sextant, maintaining direction, resolving programing problems and trying to foresee other complexities before they arise.

We have the need of a creative and well versed writer for Press releases to the media.

There’s a cabin vacant for someone who is not scared of knocking on doors and asking questions, if you’ve got belief in your abilities and you’re looking for a challenge then climb aboard.

It’s only when you take on these responsibilities does the enormity of the situation and the work required become apparent. Akiva, Chaim and Aaron are putting together the graphics and website, there’s a need for a volunteer with possibly PHP experience.

The team could do with some motivated volunteers, if you’ve got a lot to offer including demands on your time, then jump aboard what is going to be the biggest promotional event of the Jewish Blogging World.

I can attest to the amount of work involved, which is a major reason why I decided to step aside for now. So please help if you have the time and inclination.

    Yet another disaster in the making.

    The JIB ship is sinking like the Titanic.

    Can’t we stop all this egotistical backslapping? “Press releases” to the media!??! Give me a break… No one is interested, and no one cares. Get on with actually post blog posts that are interesting, challenging and high quaity rather wasting time on pathetic ego boosters like this.
