2011 Pro-Israel Blog-Off


I am very excited to announce the commencement of the Pro-Israel Blog-Off for 2011, my new initative designed to showcase the blogosphere’s best pro-Israel material in a fun and exciting manner.

Bloggers are invited to submit one “pro-Israel” entry, whether it be a blog post, podcast, or video no older than 1 month. Then each week, I will pit submissions against each other. The winner, decided by a combination of reader votes and panel-determined score, moves to the next round, where they will submit a new entry to compete against another first round winner. The process continues until we get to two finalists competing for an Apple iPad.

I will be taking submissions in the comments to this post until Tuesday 18th January, or until I receive 80 valid entries. An entry is valid if it meets the following criteria:

– It’s focus is on pro-Israel hasbara
– It was submitted by the blogger himself/herself and not by some other party
– It was posted for the first time no earlier than 1 month ago
– The submission is posted in the comments to this post in the following format:
Title of Blog
Title of Post
URL of Post
e.g. Israellycool
Pro-Israel Celebrities
– The blogger has inserted the following badge in their sidebar:

  1. The blog is entitled A Liberal Defence of Israel. The post is 'Loosening the Belt'. Its url is http://mid-eastplus.blogspot.com/
    I cannot enter the picture because my blog is on blogger and I see it won't work there. In any case, I don't know how to put things into the sidebar.

    Get back to me if there is anything I can add. The post is something of a spoof, but with a serious message.

    • Please add the badge and link to the bottom of your post at the very least. You are able to do that with Blogger.

      Perhaps you can ask someone else with blogger how to add the badge and link to the sidebar.

      • I don't know anyone else on blogger, I don't know what your 'code' is, and I've tried to copy the badge, without success. I have put your url and blog after the post and added it to blogs I'm following. Isn't there an easier way to do this? Some of us older folks aren't as IT savvy as the younger generation.
