The problem with jewish blogging

he more I enter this Jewish blogging world, and the more that I speak my mind on issues, the more that I see a disturbing trend.

It seems that the more popular a Jewish blog gets, the more it tends to speak negatively. It creates more controversy, gets people excited and talking, and creates a culture of debate and divisiveness.

You can see this on almost every popular Jewish blog around today. The only ones that don’t seem to do this are the ones that are going out of their way to show Judaism in a positive light (think: Jew In The City).
