Reply-To: aanflick@ajhs.cjh.org

Hello, Someone has requested that I share the information regarding my question on where to find Jewish blogs:

Mine is Jewish Comics -
http://jewishcomics.blogspot.com

The best place to look would be the Jewish blog aggregator sites (I used to run one). Here are the most used ones:

http://english.webster.co.il/ http://www.israelforum.com/blog_home.php
http://www.jblogsphere.net/
http://www.jewishblogging.com/
http://www.jrants.com/

Also see:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J-Blogosphere

You can also talk to some Jewish bloggers.

This is not complete, nor is it always updated, but jrants.com includes a list of Jblogs on the right side as you scroll down.

This is the blog of the Jewish Women's Archive: http://jwablog.jwa.org/ Jewesses With Attitude is a unique space for Jewish women-and those who love us-to read about and sound-off on a wide variety of topics relating to our lives: from fiery feminism to food politics; Barbie to birth control; ritual to rebellion; art to activism; queerness to queens, and all else that moves us. We love talking about gutsy Jewish chicks, sharing reactions to how we're being portrayed (the good, bad, and ugly), keeping abreast of Jewess-related events, resources, and media coverage, and taking a stand on issues we care about.

My deepest appreciation for those who offered their advice. Many thanks!

Regards,

Two AJL chapters have blogs:

http://www.sfajl.blogspot.com/ Sunshine State Safranim is the only official AJL chapter blog I have seen

http://www.sydneytaylorbookaward.blogspot.com - the unofficial blog of AJL's Sydney Taylor Book Award

http://classicjewishchildrensbooks.blogspot.com/ is an inactive blog run by Cleveland's AJL chapter

A number of people who write about Jewish books also maintain blogs:

Steve Bergson on Jewish comics -- http://jewishcomics.blogspot.com

Heidi Estrin (co-sponsored by AJL) -- http://www.jewishbooks.blogspot.com/

Heidi also produces The Book of Life podcast, whose blog is located at http://www.bookoflifepodcast.com

Barbara Bietz interviews authors who write Jewish literature for children -- http://www.BarbaraBBookBlog.blogspot.com

Steve Pollak -- http://www.jewishliteraryreview.com/

Hope this list is helpful. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
