Lessons learned

I realized that many more people than I believed read the blog, and it could be downright embarrassing. For some reason some people don't understand that the point of choosing a pseudonym while writing a blog is TO REMAIN ANONYMOUS, otherwise I'D WRITE USING MY REAL NAME!!! so if you know who I am please don't publicize it. I'm surprised I need to point that out.

The impression I make to some people by my writings is that of a rabid Misnaged-Hating, gruff guy. When these people meet me they were shocked by what they found. "Nothing could be further from the truth!" they said, Tzig is a great, sensitive, and caring guy, he means neither harm nor hate. I guess I need to lay off the bashing a little bit, after all, that wasn't exactly the point of the blog in the first place.

I also realized that I really could do without the blog. After all, I was away for 12 days and checked in 4 or 5 times during that time. Then again, if I leave who will fight the good fight and stand up for what's right?

Finally, I learned that the Neo-Tzig wasn't paying attention when I taught him how to post links concisely, using one word, without using the whole long URL, otherwise he wouldn't have used the whole long Megillah in the "Gimmel Tammuz 5766 links" post. I guess not everybody's perfect.

Hirshel: How did you realize that you could do without the blog? Do you view blogging as an onligation or chore?

Finally, I think you should keep the Neo-Tzig around. You guys are like Hillel and Shammai.

Tzemach claims he is going offline. If this is true, there is really no point in keeping his memory alive, especially as in most cases you were not wasting your time arguing with him but rather posting positive information.

Is it perhaps time to change the URL of the blog?

Then again, this is not the first time Tzemach has claimed he is going offline.

simple. I was away for close to 2 weeks and realized that the world didn't end because I wasn't writing!


Maybe I will change it.
