They like me! They really like me!

Even though I don't always mean for it to happen, I seem to have a great talent for pissing people off. Of course, there are definitely times when I do mean it, but for the most part, it's not like I purposely write to annoy (though I do realize that certain subjects are just going to rub some people the wrong way no matter what I say, and to you all, I say, pthpthpth).

In any event, I've grown to expect the displeasure (not to mention the indifference), so I'm always very pleasantly surprised to discover that not only do I have readers who don't know me or otherwise have a vested interested in me, but that some of these readers even like me. And, even more surprising, they admit it publicly (clearly not realizing the debilitating effect this will have on their own credibility). I mean, imagine my surprise when I discovered that I'd received the following compliment over at Simply Jews:

"Liza of Something Something is a new discovery for me, but definitely something something. I have found her blog while rummaging for info on that Herzliya bash on Hasbara (a separate post on a related subject is brewing... oh well, for almost half an year now). This post gives you an idea of the capabilities. Wow."

The full article can be found here, and while I'm obviously biased, I'd say it's a terrific round-up of the female Jewish sector of the blogosphere. Very inclusive, and rather cheeky to boot. We like cheeky. Go on then. Check it out. I'll wait...

Cheeky... Oh my. Where is that shelter that is going to accept me now?

One small correction before I disappear: the roundup was not focused on Jewish sector as such.

Cheers.

Thanks Laila - I think! :-)

Snoopythegoon, I stand corrected. I just assumed it was the Jewish sector because I couldn't believe I'd make a roundup that would be more encompassing than that. What does that say about me? Hmmmm...

Shocking though it may seem- I'm also prepared to "go public" about liking both your blog and even you...
