Blogger’s Favorites from Q. and Tootsie Pop (Part 4 of 4)
This is the final post in our series looking back on our two years blogging together. In this series we asked each of our 8 bloggers to look back at their favorite blog posts from each of their fellow bloggers. In this post, we focus on our favorite posts from Israeli blogger Q. and Palestinian Jerusalemite blogger Tootsie Pop. For those of you who are newer readers, we remind you a little bit about each of the bloggers and their background before introducing some of their posts!
Favorites from Q.
I am an Israeli Messianic Jewish woman. I’m married and have grandchildren. Q is for quest after truth and question everything. This blog not only allows a woman's voice, it encourages it. As we are more than half of the population, we need to be heard.

Favorites from Tootsie Pop
I am a Palestinian woman who has lived several places in such little time. I have a very strong tie to my Palestinian roots, but I also feel close to Western culture. On the outside I am sweet and social, but I can be a little stubborn (like the candy on the tootsie pop). However, the deeper you get to know me, the more vulnerable I become (like the gooey stuff in the middle).
