A Year Of Blogging

I've been blogging for about a year now, and it is time to see how successful this endeavour has been.

1) Much of the blogging was against the "disengagement", i.e. the destruction of the Jewish communitees in the Gaza Strip and Northern Samaria in return for nothing. The destruction took place.

2) I came out against the starving of Terri Schiavo to death. R.I.P.

3) Here and there I criticized the MSM. Nothing has really changed on this front either. As Arik Einstein sang, "Baitonim kotvim mah sheheim rotzim" (The newspapers write what they want).

This blog has not been very successful at changing the world. For some it has provided a layman's view of life here in Israel. At least it has been interesting and fun.

Cosmic, it sounds like you're saying goodbye?!?

Say it ain't so...

It used to be, or perhaps it was only our perception, in the "old days" that newspapers, radio news, etc. [what you refer to as MSM, & which I've finally deciphered to mean "mainstream media"] were pretty much "objective", calling the shots as they saw it, with little or no "coloring" of their own.

Alas, those days are gone, and it's very clear that the MSM is very far from objective. So many of us rely on the Blogosphere to enhance our perception of reality with a take on the news that you don't find in the MSM.

Success is not found in what you've accomplish, but in your hishtadlut - your efforts. And Cosmic, you've been very successful!!!

Ditto what yitz said.

How do you know (that "This blog has not been very successful at changing the world")? You're touching people and giving them insights and info in to Israel.

You threw the rock, just because you can't see where the ripples go doesn't mean they're not going.

Cosmic won't leave us... he knows we still need his view point, and will never change.

To everybody:

Thanks for the "chizuk"! I did not mean this to be a farewell post. I'm sorry if I mislead anybody.
