The Very First Blog, Why is Reb Moshe Blogging

Filed under: My First Blogs — Reb Moshe @ 11:54 am

Hello everyone,

Most people want to start a blog for their own personal needs. This blog is for you as I truly have no desire for myself to create one. I first started this journey by researching webmaster forums to deside what exactly a blog is. I’ll be honest with you, I don’t think I have ever really read a blog before. Maybe I have been in the dark here but when I searched the webmaster forums it said, blogs are for people who don’t know how to create websites and forums. I thought to myself, this is true, a blog is beneith me as I have been creating websites for 10 years but then I thought again, this is what people like, this is what people want. This is what I must do.

The other thoughts that ran through my brain were.
-They don’t want to know my daily wars
-I’ll be holding back a lot, lol
-How will I have time
-This is no way should take the place of writing normal divar Torahs
-Oh my how many crazy goyim will begin to post on my blog
-It can’t be any worse then when I made a forum 4 years ago
-Why do people care about someone’s personal daily thoughts

My final thought.
-This is a really good idea. People will communicate more about the website and its teachings. The site will be more interactive, it will improve, I will make many new friends and people will feel a part of my life, why they want this, I don’t know but they will feel it and it will be a GOOD THING.

  1. Shalomi,
    It’s my first blog.
    I will try to combine my spiritual purification for Pesach with cleaning-up the appartment.
    Also,I will keep praying for Reb.Moshe’s car and now new prayer request – new laptop.
    Anyway,I think that car has to be first priority because he can get out of house more and to have rest from computers.

  2. Good point Victor but the laptop is for use while out with the car so I can work on the sefarim. You should ask my friends here, If they want to hang out somewhere, I bring the video camera to do a Torah Video.

    How is the weather there in Ukraine my dear friend? You know folks, Victor is a holy Jew out there in the sticks of Ukraine. No shul for hundreds of miles but he looks to Hashem for light and holiness. When Hashem said, I am going to spread you to the 4 corners of the earth, He wasn’t joking. Now its time we all returned to Jeruslayim!
