JIB Awards – Revised Categories

There seems to be a consensus that the Israel-Diaspora distinction is unhelpful. After further thought, I tend to agree. While the idea behind it was to facilitate the inclusion of as many blogs as possible in the voting, I have found another way to achieve this end, without needing this distinction.

 

Here is my new proposed list of categories. I invite further comments. Just keep in mind that a balance needs to be kept between simplicity and inclusiveness.

 

Best English Language Blog

Best Non-English Language Blog 
Best New Blog 2004

Best Group Blog
Best Humor Blog

Best Life in Israel Blog

Best Israel Advocacy Blog

Best Politics and Current Affairs Blog

Best Personal Blog
Best Religion Blog

Best Jewish Culture Blog

Best Post by a Jewish Blogger

Best “Series” by a Jewish Blogger

Best Designed Blog
 

When commenting, please note the following:

 

1. If you do not comment on this site, I may not see the comment. Don’t assume that I read all Jewish blogs, because I don’t.

 

2. To those who think that registering for an account on here is a pain – it is only a one-time occurrence. If you do not log out, every time you enter this site, your details will be remembered, and there will no need to fill in details each time you post a comment (like is needed on most other blogs). So it is actually easier to post comments on Israellycool.

 

3. Keep the comments constructive. Comments like this one are utterly unhelpful.  

 

And always remember: the idea behind these awards is to focus attention on Jewish, Israeli, and pro-Israeli blogs, while having fun. Let’s ensure that it stays fun.


Note: This post will remain at the top of the page until the next JIB Awards Update.

 

Since posting the suggested categories yesterday, I have received some very interesting and constructive comments.
