It's been a while since I last wrote, and for more than one reason:
The Hebrew bloging scene was then quite dormant.
All this changed for me with the appearance of Notes around last June.
It's a wunderkind: an excellent platform for elected blogers, no fees, no ads whatsoever, continuously evolving, and with a growing attendance, which numbered last month some 120.000 surfers.
We are now about fifty blogers, writing mostly committed commentary. It fits like a glove.
I've already published there close to 100 Hebrew articles/posts, relating to my literary work, activism and (subversive...) political attitudes.
I wish you could read Hebrew, but since it's such a difficult language, I'll be posting here choice translations.
It helps that Blogger has improved a lot its Pro service. Now my Timeintelaviv blog will be invigorated as well.
Last December, along with 12 additional blogers, most of them from Notes, I was asked to write a New Year kind of article for Ynet, (the online site for Yediot Ahronot, the most widely read Israeli newspaper).
It is still there, in Hebrew only - So I'll translate it before the end of 2004, I promise. If you don't mind reading Satire.
Then Ynet decided to open a forum for blogers and asked me to be its director. A non paid position, yet the covers of my last two books, as well as my credo for that forum, are on display.
But that's it. I'm not going to accept any additional tasks. After all I'm deep into the research for my sixth book, and quite stressed - the people I meet with and listen to are not too young. Two of them I've already missed by a couple of weeks...
Time runs (not for our goverment) and so continues this marathon ride.
Helps create an appearance of sanity around my bubble here...
