My interests and goals:
- I am presently working on articles on every Jewish prayer. Prior to when I started to do so, I found there were very few articles on Jewish prayers. There have been a few long articles with titles such as Jewish services and List of Jewish prayers and blessings that included short descriptions of each one. It is sad that there is so little, because there is a lot that can be written about every Jewish prayer that is recited, and there have been a lot of books written that include so much information on each. So I have undertaken a goal of writing full articles on every daily prayer that is recited. I am working mostly in the order in which they are recited.
- In the summer of 2010, I worked really hard on writing articles on all psalms. I was motivated to do this because I found few psalms actually had articles of their own, and to me, this was a disgrace. Initially, I redirected all of them to psalms, but this was only temporary so none would have red links. Finally, on May 4, 2010, I reached my goal of making sure there was an article and not just a redirect on all 150 psalms. By the time all was said and done, I had created the articles on 119 of the 150 psalms. I am hoping for there to be expansions to these stubs in the future. I have tried to find a few good books that describe all the psalms in details. There are many out there, but determining which ones to use is a challenge. Since psalms are used by multiple religions, it is important to write about them at the point of view of different groups to whom they're important.
- In the future, I want write more extensive articles on each Jewish prayer, and to make each commandment listed under 613 Mitzvot link to an article on the commandment or redirect to one.
- On the page List of Ty Beanie Babies, find any linked source possible describing anything about any individual Beanie Baby, and inserting it. For any beanie that has a huge amount of info suitable for making an article, I am planning on writing an individual article on that beanie. Additionally, I want to make a List of Ty Beanie Buddies.
All the work I would like to do on Beanie Babies is a huge job, since there are around 2000 of them. I am doing it only in my spare time, and it could take years to complete. Patience is required.
