The blog that Aidel Maidel and I have been working on, Jewish Blog Definitions, is now up and running and ready to be linked to.
If you haven't been following the daily trials and tribulations of this little project, allow me to summarize:
It began life as an informal list of terms culled from my own posts, as I realized that not all of my readers were frummies or even yidden who were familiar with all the yeshivishe loshon. As time went by people asked me to keep adding terms to it, so eventually I moved it to Wikipedia which I figured to be a good location for a collaborative project like this. The thought being that anyone who wanted to add to it or adjust it could just do so. Aidel Maidel merged her own list into mine and has been putting a lot of work into it in general.
So everyone thought the Wikipedia thing was a good idea except the Lords of Wikipedia, who deleted it with one fell swoop (the keyboard is mightier than the pen) since it wasn't technically an encyclopedia article.
I then moved it to my own blog and was subjected to lots of requests and criticism until AM had the brilliant idea to just make a separate group blog that could be indexed.
So there it is. If you're interesting in becoming a contributor, just email me or AM. And I have also set it up so that if you link to it, you'll get an automatic link back.
