Follower fifty-two, please come back!!!

I guess that’s where hubris gets you… up until yesterday, I had fifty-TWO followers; now, one is gone.

Which means one person was offended by… (let’s see – what did I post yesterday?) my post about Gavriel Zev’s encounter with the man in the bank.  Or maybe they didn’t like the Shabbos menu?

Whatever it was, if you were Follower Fifty-Two, please leave a comment telling me what I did wrong?  I will do almost anything to win back your love!

  1. I wonder that too if someone leaves if maybe I haven't been writing up to snuff or something. Wow though I don't even have 50 followers if ever that day should come I'll have a party lol

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white.
