The LOR blog hasn’t been in use much lately, and when I was chosen to be this year’s blog specialist on our Press Corps, I wondered why we don’t post more. In the last year, we’ve published three articles, all written by members of our region about their experiences in BBYO or with Judaism. This makes sense, as normally, that’s what a blog like this is all about. But it doesn’t have to be…

This blog can be a space for anyone to write, and one that allows us to share ideas and things that are of interest with those reading. As blog specialist, I hope to reimagine what our blog is and the potential it holds. Using new writing styles, a variety of topics (not just BBYO events!), and getting writers from all around our region opens the door to new possibilities. The blog will become more than just a place to share how events went, but also what our region and its members are interested in and looking forward to.

We can’t wait to show you all the amazing things coming up on the blog. Anyone can contribute, and articles will be posted every other week! There are going to be so many new ideas and writers coming to the blog, you don’t want to miss out. If you’re interested in writing, reach out to me. We want to give everyone the opportunity to put something up and share their story! This is a chance open to all, so why not try it?
