Just wanted to give a quick run through of the links I have on the right side of this page.
The Sussmans in Israel. This is a great chronicle of a nice family that has decided to leave the US and move to Israel to pursue a life there. They write eloquently about the unique Israeli experience and absorbing themselves in the society. I wish they wrote more, but three little ones will keep you pretty busy.
The Bouncer is a pretty good blog. He has gotten a book deal since I started reading him and that hasn’t really altered his unique view of the world too much. He can definitely string a sentence together and is a pretty interesting guy. As with most writers he seems to be a neurotic mess. Woody Allen meets this guy. I never enjoyed bars or clubs in my life for a variety of reason. After reading this guy’s blog from almost the first post, I feel completely justified.
Paul Katcher has an awesome NYC blog. His was the first blog I ever read and was really the inspiration for this one. We share a deep love of the Yankees. I don’t always agree with him, but his blog is one of the best formatted you will see. He is a master of the net with a huge following that feeds him wacky links. He also travels a ton and is an avid photographer. He usually has some good pictures when he comes home from his many trips. He parlayed his blog into a regular writing gig on the now defunct Page 3 of ESPN.com. I am sure he will be a featured columnist somewhere soon.
People, Places, and Things That Tend to Annoy Me is an angry blog. We have just begun to see content on it regularly and I never fail to laugh hysterically after reading it. I am sure it will bring much comedy as the weeks and months go by. I highly recommend it.
As I find more links worth reading I shall update the list. I promise only this. The writing you read will be decent. I can’t stomach blogs where the writing sucks, they just end up irritating me.
