I’m so honored to have David [Ben Alexander] from Skeptic’s Kaddish reviewing my book RE-CREATE & CELEBRATE on his site TODAY. I will be turning comments off and meet you on his site so I’ll see you there. I’m excited to introduce you to David if by chance you don’t know him already. It’s fun connecting friends which helps you create new followers and meet others in our blogosphere as well.
I’ll never forget meeting David when he wrote a message to me when he reached 1,000 followers and said “I never thought of writing a post to thank people for reaching 1,000 but when you did that on your blog, I’ve decided to do it as well, since I’m so grateful. That was in 2020 I’m pretty sure.
It struck me because not soon after, he surpassed me and I remember thinking, “wait, how did he do that?”. It was beyond me since I’m very active on my blog. Sure,I miss some and I know I’m behind right now but overall, I am very conscience. With near 6,300 followers since that short time, he has surpassed me by a huge number why? Content and connectivity! I have no idea how he finds the time to do all of what he does.
David was born in Jerusalem, grew up in the US and returned to Jerusalem where he lives now and is a writer for The Jewish Agency for Israel where he lives with his wife and daughter.
He began writing the ‘Skeptic’s Kaddish for the Atheist’ in Jerusalem, Israel, 30 days after burying his father in South Brunswick, New Jersey, USA. His series was originally published on the Times of Israel blogs. Read his kaddish memoir.
David’s quick wit, warm heart, care of our world and creativity are next to none. He is currently creating his own forms of poetry with his friend Sangeetha who came up with this fun idea, going through the alphabet taking turns selecting poetic forms writing poems to one another using those forms.
He participates in many prompts and even has his own ‘Poetry In Partners’ where he features one guest poem weekly on or before Shabbat (the Jewish Sabbath, which runs from Friday night to Saturday night) in Israel (UTC+02:00). You simply compose and publish personal poems inspired by each featured piece. These poetic responses may take any form and may borrow imagery or language from featured guest poems and then David writes a poem back to you in response to yours.
He also started W3 Poetry Prompt, which goes live on Wednesdays (PoW). Basically there is a poet of the week that is chosen by last week’s winner and it’s a brilliant way to get people around the world to play with forms, words and connect so if you’re looking for a place to connect with other people and grow your blog, this is a brilliant place to play.
Don’t be surprised if he reaches out to you to ask you to Reblog your work or reach out to him as its a fun way to get your blog seen. I should also mention that David has great blogging tips on his blog as well.
Thanks for getting to know David and thank you so very much David for your review today which I can’t wait to read. Click here and I’ll meet you there.
