I think it would be nice to maintain a list of blogs that have linked to judaism.SE / mi.yodeya, as a way to recognize our supporters and as a way to raise awareness that this is something we want to promote more of. I'll post a community-wiki answer, and I request that people add entries to the answer with a format like:

  • Name of blog(linked) (username here if applicable (linked)) - Description of blog and of times it has linked to here, with links, of course.

  • parshablog (josh waxman) - An extremely prolific and erudite blog about Torah commentary that features weekly roundups of online parsha resources, in-depth analyses of commentaries, and careful linguistic study. He is also an active member of our community, and he has re-used (with attribution!) answers he has posted here as blog posts and as also featured content from here in brief "interesting posts" roundups.
  • The Rebbetzin's Husband (here) - Brings us behind the curtain, into the personal world of a pulpit (now kollel-head) rabbi who happens to be well-read, funny, and tech-savvy. He was generous enough to support mi.yodeya when it first went public, and also pointed his readers here when he recycled an interesting question from his blog into a question here as well.
  • On The Contrary (ADDeRabbi) - It's hard to summarize this always-excellent rabbi blog except to point out that the author's username intentionally and fittingly incorporates "Attention Deficit Disorder," an Aramaic word for "on the contrary," "Rabbi," and a play on words. He was also generous enough to support mi.yodeya during its initial public launch.
  • On the Main Line (S.) - Unique and extensive research into a broad range of topics in Jewish history, anthropology, literature, Hebrew language and printing. Often focuses on lesser-known personalities or lesser-known sides of better-known ones. Supported mi.yodeya in its infancy.
  • Twitter
  • Jew Square - 2011 May 13
  • Monica's Journal (Monica Cellio) took a fascinating post on her blog and converted it into a great question here, linking to the latter in the comments on the former. Another time, she created an awesome anthology of science-fiction themed J.SE questions. Another time, a discussion on meta prompted this d'var torah on Shoftim, with a link to the main site. Also linked 2011-06-23, 2011-07-28, and other times since then that I've forgotten to mention.
  • Al Pi Cheshbon - A very interesting blog devoted to analyzing mathematical and numerical issues that come up in Judaism. Cited J.SE's analysis of Haftara frequency in a post on that topic.
  • Torah Idealsa post just to link here, 2011 July 24
  • My Orthodox Life (TK Kocheran) credited material from a comment here in his post on "Vegetarianism and Halacha."
  • Part of the ingathering contest:
  • Halocho a Day (doniels) - A short Halacha - 5 days a week - from the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch (usually). Started in 2007 and mirrored as a group on FaceBook. Mi Yodea is linked in the sidebar of each page under Useful Halachic links.
    • Mitzvah a Day (doniels) - A blog listing all 77 positive and 194 negative Mitzvot that are applicable nowadays. Mi Yodea is linked in the sidebar of each page under Useful Halachic links.
  • Frugal and Kosher (Scimonster) - A blog that shares thoughts about being simultaneously frugal and kosher, as well as thoughts on making Aliyah. Promoted Chanukah - Mi Yodeya? in a dedicated post.
  • Rationalist Judaism - R Natan Slifkin's blog exploring the legacy of the rationalist medieval Torah scholars, animals in Torah and various other topics. Published a guest post discussed here on meta
  • @Monica - I'm really excited about the interaction we've already had with your blog, with a post from there turning into a great question here. Any chance we could impose upon you for an overt endorsement? – Isaac Moses Jun 22 '11 at 4:43
  • good point -- I did pitch this during commitment, but now that we're in beta I should do so again and link to some interesting questions. (Tomorrow is daf yomi day at my journal, so if you've got suggestions for questions that would tie in well on that post specifically, fire away.) – Monica Cellio Jun 22 '11 at 12:56
  • @Monica, Thanks for the pitch during commitment. Feel free to add a link to that into your bullet point here. I'm sure that if you keep this in mind, it won't be long before something here sparks your imagination enough to inspire a blog post or connect with something you were already going to write. – Isaac Moses Jun 22 '11 at 13:55

I don't see us listed on http://jrants.com/

Go to http://jrants.com/blogs/add to submit an addition request.

  • jrants.com/blogs/add seems to be for requesting a link to a blog, which latter this is not. Unless I'm missing something? – msh210 Jun 24 '11 at 18:50
  • I don't think they differentiate between personal blogs, newspaper blogs (jpost is on there) or wikis. Granted, I don't think they have any wikis linked, but I don't think they would discriminate. – Seth J Jun 24 '11 at 18:56
  • thanks for the idea! I just tried to submit this site and got "You've already submitted a blog feed matching that information," so I guess someone has already submitted J.SE. – Isaac Moses Jun 28 '11 at 21:28
  • Hmm. It wasn't I. But that's good, I guess! – Seth J Jun 29 '11 at 3:04
