7-Year Blogiversary

I cannot believe that I wasted spent 7 years of my life on this blog!  I enter my own personal Motza'ei Shevi'it year on Yeranen Yaakov, and hope to continue עד ביאת גואל צדק and beyond.

This is a call for anyone who wants to make a comment, suggestion, complaint, rant, compliment, etc. in the comments about the blog in general.  Whether you like it or hate it or just want to say hello, I'd love to hear from you.

Thank you and be happy!

משנכנס אדר מרבים בשמחה!

hi, baruch HaShem your blog and a couple others helped wean me off watching movies as i didn't want to hold a book when tired and this was so interesting and helped to break my habit. (am still trying!) - and really got me interested in current events. thanks for your time and patience.

I like the blog but what I hate is the date setting which is very negative.

I am new to the blog .
It is great.
Only thing is the Geula updates are often long and confusing and make zero sense to a non Torah scholar.

Hey Yaranen a big thank you from Gibraltar. Been with you all the way and hope to stay till Mashiach comes, in which case we shall meet in Yerushalayim. Hazak U Baruch!! Shabbat Shalom and chodesh tov!

Not wasted....not spent but instead invested

You invested 7 years of spreading Torah. Yasher Koach.

Positive comments:
This blog is a great gateway to other Geula sites. Continue those "interesting" links.

Suggestions for improvement:
Lets focus on the goal, which is to assist achieiving the goals of the Boreh Olam.
Rather than emphasizing how what is happening was foretold (or "predicted"), lets change
ourselves. Our world will change when we change ourselves. Please provide detailed
instructions on how we can change. General slogans like:
Stop the loshon hora,learn more, daven better, more chesed, give the benefit
of the doubt,etc. do not seem to be working. We are in a Matzav of Sakana,
Pikuach Nefesh. Emergency measures are required. What are they? Blogging is not the answer,
but maybe it can lead us to the answers. Aseh lecha Rav. Hatzlacha raba.

From a reader in Phoenix, AZ. I look forward to reading your posts every day, although sometimes I disappointed (when you don't post every day). Then you overwhelm with so much information, my patience is rewarded. Thank you very much for all your research and for the English translations. I, too, appreciate your cites. Although I'm not one to read the original, I'm happy to know this all comes from Kosher sources. You are doing a wonderful service for so many people - in many places. Thank you.
