I’m Moving up in the world

heshThe super cool picture was done by Elkie Sudin an artist I spent shabbos with – who will be getting a full post eventually.

Just some items of recent note that I am kind of proud of…

My first piece was published on the Jewlicious Blog last week – it was a wrap up of ROI.

I got my first paid writing gig for My Jewish Learning’s blog mixed multitudes.

The Jewish Channel week in Review features yours truly.

My first big write up was done by Tablet Mag formerly known as Netbook the highbrow online magazine dedicated to Jewish arts and culture.

Nachum Segal the popular Jewish radio host took me out to lunch right before I went to Israel and it turns out he’s a big fan.

Some loyal fans were nice enough to put Heshy Fried onto wikipedia.

I am even thinking about getting a publicist, but have no money so they will need to be pro-bono.

    A pro-bono publicist? Use a groupie or hanger-on. You got plenty of fans who’d be willing to work for you.

    Nice, but an ideal painting would be of you moving your arms a lot as you rant standing up.

    Mazal Tov! I’m just a lurker, but I do hang around, so you must be doing something right 🙂

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the wikipedia article! My favorite line from the article:
    “He has been called an anti-Semite, chillul Hashem and a general disgrace to Jews by many within the Orthodox community.”

    Don’t let it all go to your head, Heshy. 😉

    nice wiki!

    Satire is tragedy plus time. You give it enough time, the public, the reviewers will allow you to satirize it. Which is rather ridiculous, when you think about it.

    I guess the time has come for some Frum Satire. Only 5,778 years have passed to get some great material.

    To another 5,778 years!

    Was there a reason you threw an extra nine years in there?

    Nice for you. First little bits of publicity feel good indeed.
