Blog Ideas

Here’s some ideas I have for my blog. Comment and tell me which ones you like.

  • Once a month, have a book and/or movie review.
  • Every Sunday, write a weekly review about what I did in school. (This IS a school blog, after all!)
  • Every month, I give a writing prompt. You, my readers, will write a story at least 10 sentences and e-mail it to me at I will read every story given to me by the deadline. The winning story will be posted on my blog.
  • Every day, have a Yiddish word of the day, and every week, have a Yiddish proverb.

Now let me explain a little bit about this. Yiddish is a “dying” language. That means all of the speakers are dying or not saying it anymore. The only people who speak it now are 60+. When they die, nobody else will say it. This will be an effort to revive it. I, with the help of Fred Kogos, will attempt to bring back Yiddish.

  • Ask you guys what my 200th post should be, and write it.

  1. Hi Jake – I enjoy reading your blog and especially the SBC posts. I would like to see the following blog posts:
    writing prompts
    Yiddish word of the day and Yiddishj sayings.

  2. I like them all, but “Every day, have a Yiddish word of the day, and every week, have a Yiddish proverb” is my favorite. Everyday I send out a “Thought of the day” to all of my designers and I also post it on Linked In.

  3. Hi Jake,
    I also like the Yiddish word idea. I know a few words of Yiddish and would be happy to learn more.
    I like your school idea too. Maybe you could write about one thing you learned in school that you really enjoyed and explain why. And also write about one thing you did in school that you thought was not so useful, explain why and give some suggestions on how it could be done better.

  4. The Yiddish word of the day is a truly inspired idea – what a great way to get the word out about something near and dear to you. Great post to get people involved and thinking and commenting. Fantastic.
