Blogging Forgiveness for Yom Kippur

Blogging is all about communication and relationships: relationships with readers, commenters and other bloggers. Those relationships are important to me, and I haven’t always nurtured them the way I should. So I’d like to ask forgiveness . . .

  • For giving incorrect or misleading information, or for omitting important facts.
  • For taking things too seriously, or for being flippant.
  • For not responding to comments, or generally neglecting the discussion.
  • For not participating in the community as much as I would have liked.
  • For any way that I may have offended readers and friends, on line or off.

If there is a specific issue you would like to talk about, please contact me privately.

Wishing you all an easy and meaningful fast, and a gmar chatimah tovah. May we all be inscribed in the Book of Life for the coming year.

  1. Wishing you an easy and meaningful fast, and a gmar chatimah tovah too.
    I have never felt offended by anything you may have written, or not written for that matter.

  2. Gmar chatimah tovah. I have found your blog informative and food for thought this year. Thank you.

  3. Hannah,

    Thank you for your wonderful blog. I echo Ilana-Davita – I have never been offended by anything you have written and indeed admire your willingness to discuss fraught social topics.

    May you have an easy fast and a meaningful Yom Kippur.

  4. lovely post, stunning photo. it’s hard to put those apologies out there- even on line. i admire you for that.

  5. Hope you had an easy fast – I enjoy reading your always informative posts. (And I apologize for not commenting enough – you have a lot of very articulate and intelligent readers, it’s hard to keep up!)
