Whew! Busy days these are so this will be brief. February's Tel Aviv Writer's Cafe held at Meshoogaat Cafe on the 13th was all about blogging and bloggers; Does it help a career? Is it worthwhile?
Veteran blogger Allison Kaplan Sommer of A Sealed Room addressed the group of over 20 attendees on everything from her personal career started at Columbia University and currently including editorial duties at Pajamas Media to the politics of blogging to how her blog has helped get her jobs.
On hand was Allison's personal friend Lisa Goldman of On the Face who also spoke about her trials and tribulations as a blogger - stalkers and political finger pointing in the comments section - and how her blog has helped launch her career and garner speaking appearances and publicity both in Israel and abroad.
Once again, lively and interesting and the numbers just seem to grow and grow.
Next up: Taxes and Filing. March 13th. Leading up to the IRS April 15 filing deadline, U.S./Israel tax expert Phil Stein will field questions on filing do's and don't's for dual U.S./Israel citizens.
