Do you know about the Nefesh B'Nefesh Jewish Bloggers Convention?
Taking place Sunday, September 13th, 2009 the second annual gathering of Tweeters, Bloggers and Jewish New Media Gurus is happening in Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is out of reach for some of us but there is a means of getting there: the convention has a "Send A Friend To Israel Contest." I'd love to see more friends attending in-person, including a very deserving blogger: Chaviva of Kvetching Editor. (Love the glasses!)
I'm nominating Chaviva because she is a consistently, thoughtful voice in the Jewish online community. Her tweets and blog posts are positive and thoughtful -- refreshing in an online community which can sometimes seem dominated by jaded and sarcastic voices. (I still love all ya'll irreverants too.) So check out Chaviva's Blog & Tweets. If you like what you read, help her to enhance her contribution to the Jewish social media world by nominating her too.
Other blogger friends who will be there live, in person:
- David Abitbol, founder of Jewlicious, is leading a workshop: Networking for Money: Your Social Network has value. "Give and ye shall receive."
- David Kelsey, Jewcy blogger, is a panelist.
I'll be participating virtually and -- thank you event planners -- the programs start and end late (Israel time 2PM - 10PM) so that the rest of the world can participate. Israel is seven hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time: so if I'm doing my math right, that's 7AM-3PM EST.
