"You Seem To Have Removed Yourself From Your Blog"
Received via e-mail from a reader:
If you look back on your posts of a few years ago, you will see quite a difference: there were humorous anecdotes about your children, memoirs about your family and your ancestors, and articles of sincere personal introspection, which, I'm sure, many of your readers could relate to. I've noticed that, in the past year or so, your posts are more often written by guest contributors, and the topics are almost exclusively interpretations of Chassidic teachings. There is much less input of your own personal views, even on these topics (although you pose the questions, so, in a way, you are focusing and controlling the topics). Whether consciously or unconsciously, you seem to have removed yourself from your blog. It is more of a "vehicle" for impersonal religious discussions and the views of other people. Perhaps the reason you are deriving so little satisfaction from it, these days, is that it is no longer a way for you to express your own thoughts and feelings.
