Tweeting, Friending, Blogging, Plotzing

12 Jul

Okay, so I’m tweeting, I’m friending, I’m blogging, I’m plotzing from all this social networking.  Our new HJ Facebook page is the latest venture – please join us!   

I confess, it’s kind of fun, especially when a friend from 5th grade finds you. But it’s critical that you don’t let it take over your life and metastacize into something you can’t control – so if you’re a little on the obsessive-compulsive side, good people, proceed with caution, ‘cause once you start, you may never stop!

In the interest of keeping nepotism alive and well, I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite bloggers… being as how they’re family.  This is shameless, but, hey, you got my full disclosure.

For starters, there’s my firstborn son, Aaron Naparstek, the Liveable Streets guy, whose NY promotes pedestrian safety, bicycling, environmental decency, decongesting cities of excessive cars and the congenial use of free public space.  Streetsblogs are popping up all over the U.S. now, and rightly so. Aaron’s got serious street cred, so to speak.

My fabulous niece, Marjorie Ingall, has long had fan clubs, and I’ve always enjoyed basking in the deflected glory of her stardom, dating all the way back to her Sassy magazine days, when she held enormous sway with the tweens.  She became the East Village Mamele in the Forward, where she somehow made it hilariously hip to be an observant, young Jewish mother; and now appears in the Tablet, where her first column was about giving the moniker “Bubbe” a makeover.

And finally, there’s my terrific and brainy bro, Michael Krepon, an international policy wonk who wrote about Lessons Learned from Recovering from Chemo & Serious Illness after surviving an insanely aggressive lymphoma and its equally toxic chemotherapy - both were hell bent on killing him, but happily had no success (the sucker popped through his breastbone, alien-style, while he was giving a talk in Rome, breaking his sternum in two… quite the once-in-a-lifetime experience…)

Well, stay tuned.  No doubt, there’s more inappropriate family bragging to come, but not for a while, I promise!
Take care & be well,
