Jib Awards: Looking for a Few Good Men (or Women)
Let me set the scene for you. Take something like, Star Wars, and you will get lots of love, but tons of fanboy critique. Every fan has their complaints and thinks they could have done better. (especially those Prequels!) Now imagine if George Lucas made an announcement and told all the fans - "Here are the keys to the franchise, continue as you wish, whatever you'd like you can do."
Wouldn't that be cool? Even more important at the moment - what kind of serious dork am I that I could even make that analogy in the first place? Geez, I know, right? I can imagine now that the real question is "can I even trust Chaim to ever write a normal post after this?" .. and you'd be right for asking, but let me just connect the dots and be on more way.
The Jewish and Israeli Blog Awards have forever been part of a love/hate J-Blogger relationship. This year for the first time, us, the bloggers have been given the keys to the "franchise." We are working very hard to make this something that every blogger can get on board with. We are trying to address every concern that every blogger had over the years.
Things are going very smoothly so far, we even have a brand new website. There are a few of us that have been working non stop on this project, and we have already secured 4 (at least) very good sponsors. We're looking for more sponsors, and we're looking for one or two more people that can take on an aggressive and active role.
You can join our Jib Google Group to take part in this discussion and offer some assistance or you can e-mail me or Akiva or BagelBlogger for more information.
I leave you now with a sincere apology that I will never again use a Star Wars analogy so gracelessly.
