The obligatory JIB Awards post

I am not worthy.


I didn't get a single nomination, either this year or last year.

I've concluded that the Jewish blogosphere is trying, ever so gently, to tell me that I'm too rude to be nominated. After all, other people link to my blog, but I don't link to theirs. Having a blogroll is just derech eretz, common courtesy.

So I have a sincere—not to mention desperate—request: Please help me qualify for next year's Jewish and Israeli Blog (JIB) Awards by telling where in the bleeping blue blazes in my template I'm supposed to paste the code for the blogroll that I just spent four hours trying to set up.

And do surf over to Israellycool to check out all the hyperlinks to really cool blogs and posts that were nominated for JIB Awards. "Oh, the places you'll go." :)

Rav todot, many thanks, to Sheyna Galyan, who e-mailed me instructions describing exactly where to paste the "BlogRoll Me" link code:

"just after this entry:

!-- Begin #profile-container --


!-- End #profile --"

As you can see, it worked!!!

But every time I've tried to paste the blogroll code into my template, I've ended up (in the "Preview") with about three times as many "Previous Posts" showing up on my sidebar, which makes for an awfully long sidebar. I'm afraid to save the change for fear that I'd never be able to figure out how to "undo"/edit it.

I regret that I'll have to bother some of you kind folks again via e-mail. Thank you for your offers of assistance. I hope to get my blogroll up and running shortly, but I'm obviously going to need more help. For lack of an alternative, I freely confess to being technology-challenged. Sorry to make such a pest of myself.

I didn't get any nominations, either, so you're in good company. :-)

I'm sending you an e-mail with a description of how I set up a blogroll through Feel free to e-mail me if you have questions... I tried not to be too confusing, but confusion may reign anyway.

Shall we all intone "Next Year in JIB"? ;-)

I came across your blog. Just wanted to say Hi. Let me know if you still need help with your blog roll.

Email me if you need help... I'd suggest a blogrolling blogroll, they're easier to put in the blogroll, add blogs to if you wish, and maintain...

BTW, I tested your BlogRoll Me! link, and it works just fine. :)

Sheyna, thanks a million for all your help. I'm afraid there's another e-mail on the way. I still can't get around the problem that about 30 Previous Posts, as opposed to the current 10, get displayed in the Preview every time I paste the blogroll code into my template, so I'm still afraid to save the changes. I do hope I'm not trying your patience too much.

I can't wait to read this new book that I just bought called "Destined to Choose." It seems to have been written by one Sheyna Galyan. Is that anybody I know, perchance? :)

I've got news for you, Out of Step: I'm the one who nominated you!

It's no big deal, but being noticed is nice for the ego. Enjoy your 15 minutes of fame. :)

Someone with the same name as me wrote a book? Cool! I have to meet her! ;-)

I hope the amended template I sent last night resolves the situation. We WILL get this to work!
