There is strength in numbers (JIBs)

Today's Lesson: There is strength in numbers. For proof, look no further than the JIB voting where outstanding solo blogs like Godol Hador, OrthoMom, and RenegadeRebbetzin are being trounced by collaborative projects. Out in front in multiple categories are JewSchool (7 writers), Jewlicious (7 writers) and the fake-Torah blog (11 writers, though we think Sarah Schmidt, the Alan Colmes of that group, probably voted for us.)

Anyway, today's the last day of voting, so here's what I want you to do. First, go to the fake-Torah blog and let Yaakov Mencken know that you think its really cool that he was awake between 12:20 and 1:00 am this morning monitoring the votes. Tell him you don't think that's pathetic at all. (You also may want to mention that accusing Gil Student of cheating, even in the most backhanded of ways, is despicable but I leave that to your discretion.)

Next, head over to the JIB voting page. DovBear could use a push in this category, and a nudge here and here. I'd also really like to see Gil Student win here. (I'd really like to see GH win that category, too, but he's been numerically eliminated, I think)
