Yom HaBlog

Thank you to ESG for correctly noting that today is the Our Shiputzim Yom HaBlog (i.e. this blog’s Hebrew blogiversary).

In contrast, there’s still another eleven days BA”H until the secular blogiversary.

The Shiputzim family is split between those who feel we should celebrate today and those who feel we should wait.

Reasons to celebrate today: This blog is about our lives here in Israel. Therefore – just like we celebrate our Hebrew birthdays – we should observe this blog’s Hebrew anniversary.

Reasons to wait for next week IY”H: Since Blogger uses the secular calendar, every post – including the very first one - is datemarked with the secular date. Therefore, it makes more sense to observe the secular blogiversary.

Your thoughts?


  1. I think we should celebrate the blogiversary because the Yom HaBlog is already over and we didn't celebrate it yet, but I don't care which one to celebrate other years.

  2. I think on the Hebrew date, because we're in Israel. And in Israel, you go by the Hebrew date.

  3. Happy Blogiversary, whenever it is. Why not celebrate twice? Then celebrate the half-birthdays, too.

  4. Happy Bloganniversary anyway. Keep up the good work.

  5. We should celebrate Yom HaBlogiversary - 11 days of celebration!!!
    May the next year of the blog be full of posts and first comennts!!! (YAT - I said that before you so even if you say it, it will work for me!!!

  6. AMG - Any ideas for a big blogiversary party?

    ESG - Well said!

    Leora - Thanks, and I like your half-birthday idea!

    Ilana-Davita - Thanks!

    MAG - Amen!
