Who am I?

Question for my readership. Is my blog obviously Jewish? If you are: a reform/conservative/ free liberal/reconstructionist/unafiliated/yeshivish/modern orthodox/Bal Teshuva/Sefardi (all types)/Ashkenazi (all types including Russian)/Chiloni/ Datai Leumi/Lebavitch/Yekkish/ (if I left anyone out it is unintentional..please write your affiliation in the comments)

JEW

Do you consider me Jewish? What would you call me?

A religious fanatic/haradi/Ulta-orthodox/confused/modern chasiddish/yeshivish/ maker of own religion/ modern orthodox/ Bal Teshuva/ enter your own name here/

I would love to hear from you.

Well, true Charedi you are not - you are a blogger for a start.
I think most of your catagories overlap each other, but the answer is why would you want to be labeled.
If you are a true Torah Jew, you will be striving for greater things and thats all that counts.

Karl- there you go labeling again. Who said a charedi can't blog?
What can be greater than blogging and spreading das torah?! ;-)

While it's true that a lot of charedim don't use the internet, there are probrobly a small amount that do. There's even a forum for them haredi.siteburg.com/forum

the internet is good if used properly like learning and sharing what's good like a Dvar Torah

I think a modern haredi is someone who is very serious about his religious practise but he is not afraid of the rest of the world. He's just very careful about how much of it he mingles with and that he does it in a discreet fashion.

Hmmm sounds a little bit like a hypocrite no? :0)

Sorry didn't meen to call you that!

I do think a haredi can blog but the more I learn about this forum the more I am thinking it has a serious backside of getting too many unwanted/needed influences...

mir, you mean getting outside influences that will make people go off the derech? yea, i guess that could and might happen. Though, I hope it doesn't. I wish for it to be a place where they can talk to each other about stuff.

Anon,
that's what I am hoping too but I think one needs to be aware and not get too caught up in discussions that in the end might just be damaging. The uncertainty might just grow by listening too much to other people who are just as insecure themselves.
On the other hand the inspiration might grow from it.

I see, you're worried about people getting overheated in a discussion. It's understandable.

The discussions look calm now. But I guess if many different people were to post, the discussions might get heated if people don't keep their cool.

I hope that the discussions stay as calm as they are now.
