Cold Turkey!

Greetings JBlogosphere!

Due to an upcoming family simcha, I am hereby taking a blogging break for a week and a bit. I have way too many personal responsibilities to attend to, such as numerous Divrei Torah and speeches to write, comic material to produce, thought-provoking ideas to ponder and deliver, as well as plan a tiyul around the Shomron for our guests, and a million other things.

Don't dismay, I have contacted an eclectic group of Bloggers from around the Universe to keep you educated and entertained in my absence on this blog.

Currently, I have about 500 readers a day. The big question is, will I still have a readership when I return? Will the guest bloggers write amazing posts as they did a year and a half ago? Will we read about Mars and Venus in the Jewish home? Will they write aliya inspirational stories or Torah posts with wit and humor?

G-d only knows.

Good luck to them...and to us all!


Jameel & Co.

PS: I will still be reading and might pop in from time to time...depends on my progress on my list of things to do. I never was that great at cold turkey, except in the YU dorm at 2:30 AM. Even better than a microwaved bagel-dog.

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael, even if it gets taken over by a bunch of Waffle-crazed bloggers from around the planet

Is there really a Simcha or is this a front for the group who kidnapped you again? Joe, Ezzie, and HH get Jamel back from his captors!!!

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

special ed: oh, it's definitely real. (Following up the post from a hanachat tefillin in mearat hamachpela last month)

Sarah: thanks!

RafiG: Even if nobody reads your blog ever again, you will always be remembered. Sounds like a great epitath. :-/

I think this whole simcha thing is one in a long string of excuses to avoid naming the winner of the 200000th visitor contest. A contest which someone, ahem, won fair and square.

Mazel Tov on the (alleged) Simcha!

jameel - mazal tov (again)! I probably won't be reading your blog because of the same reason you're not posting, our son's Bar Mitzvah. Sorry I'm going to miss yours. Will there be waffles at the party? DH might try and drop in, since he'll be in Ra'anana that night for, you guessed it, a bar mitzvah party. :)
Great parsha!
