      Not Just Politics


      "Jblogging," that's blogging on Jewish topics, is a lot broader and varied than just the politics you see here on the A7 jblogs.

      You can get an idea by checking out the two active jblog carnivals.  Blog carnivals are like "floating" internet magazines in which most of the articles come from blogs.  On blog carnivals, you'll find a collection of links to internet articles.

      The two jblog carnivals are Havel Havelim and the Kosher Cooking Carnival.

      Jack coordinates Havel Havelim, which originally established by Soccer Dad.  And I, in my guise as me-ander, maintain The Kosher Cooking Carnival.

      I hope that  you'll visit the jblog carnivals, and if you have any links to contribute, you can send them via blog carnival's service for HH and KCC.

      Enjoy!
