Al Heit that we Discussed topics that we should have evaded.
Al Heit that we Evaded topics that we should have discussed.
Al Heit that we Found fault in other blogs improperly.
Al Heit that we Guessed future events that didn't occur and led others to believe us.
Al Heit that we Had been impatient with certain comments.
Al Heit that we Inferred things from the Torah improperly and blogged about it.
Al Heit that we Jumped to conclusions in our thinking.
Al Heit that we Knocked down other correct opinions so callously.
Al Heit that we Leaked information that should have been kept secret.
Al Heit that we Misunderstood ideas and passed those ideas on to others.
Al Heit that we Noticed an inspiring article and didn't blog about it.
Al Heit that we Opined about a topic when we should have kept our mouths shut.
Al Heit that we Plagiarized from others without attribution.
Al Heit that we Questioned the actions of Tzaddikim and Gedolei Yisrael improperly.
Al Heit that we Remembered the bad and forgot the good in those we disagree with.

Al Heit that we Yearned for a better tomorrow on our blogs via politicians and not via Mashiah.
Al Heit that we Zeroed in on our blogs while ignoring our families and jobs.

May we all become better jbloggers in the coming year and may our Teshuva inspire others to do Teshuva as well.  And when we do national Teshuva, may we merit the coming of Mashiah this year.  Amen.

Gemar Hatima Tova to all, and have an easy and meaningful fast.

I wish one particular popular blogger would take to heart this al chait:
"Al Heit that we Jumped to conclusions in our thinking."

I'm still waiting for that "I'm sorry for the hurt feelings!"
