R Eldar is the Unknown Blogger of the Week

''R Eldar did have a whole blog - many entries - at one point - I guess either looking for work or as a result of the barrage of messages and comments he decided to delete the blogs - but this entry stayed - it's linked to from wikipedia as primary evidence about sky burials - and gets thousands of visitors.''

Subtitle quote by Ali about the following contraversial blog by R Eldar
Tibetan sky burial in China

I nominate R Eldar
Amazing travel adventures. He has been a member of TravelBlog since 2005. Incredible that somebody with such good stories to tell has not made it to the Front Page.

I have read a few of R Eldars blogs. They seem to re-appear sometimes. I think he sometimes makes them private. 😊 Reply to this

Hi fellow travelers

It is great to see that even 4 years after I came back from my trip my blogs are still of interest to some people.

I will republish the hidden entries for all to see.
Would love to hear your comments and thoughts.

Yes, your blogs are still being read and even being talked about on occasion. 😊 I open up one of yours, when I want to read about a top adventure.

To get blogs on the Front Page these days a blogger needs to have 3 reecommends. I dont know what the requirement used to be, when you first became a member. I have only been here for a couple of years. TravelBlog was already huge, by the time I appeared. 😊 You now have 3 recommends, so your future blogs will be on the Front Page if they have at least one photo and fulfull the minimum word requirement for Front Page blogs. The minimum word requirement is currently around 400 words, but best to make it over 600 to make sure...

Interestingly - today - I saw a short documentary on Iran (A Taste of Iran - BBC World) - in Shiraz - the Zoroastrians used a very similar sky burial method up until recent times - when numbers of vultures declined and made it impractical.

Rotem - congratulations on the blogger of the week - I hope you get to travel and blog again soon. Reply to this
