Taking in consideration the fact that I am born in Montenegro, I have lived there, my mother is Montenegrin lady, it is consistent that I often go there in order to visit my family.

Hence, I am a writer who published five books and has written two drama texts.

All things considered, it makes me an artist who has participated on few festivals in Montenegro, also had promotions of my books, etc.

Nevertheless, I was fascinated by one issue
Journalists in Montenegro were so focused on my blogs, especially the ones which are published on Jerusalem Post.

They were asking me in every single interview about it.
I was fascinated by that fact and I have to say that they are still and obviously always will be focused about my blogs.

I have to admit, I am glad about it.

They have asked me fair questions without any attention to cause some kind of annoyance.
I have been asked what I write, which are my topics are and finally why Israel dragged my attention?

My answer is simple:

I write about Israel behind headlines.
I write about Israel which is often judged for defending itself.
I write about country which wants peace, and it is important to point out that Israel wants peace but not self destruction like many want to see it.
I write about topics which are sometimes not published in media here.
I am giving my best to be objective; I use relevant resources because the truth and justice are my motivation why I write about Israel.
I write about issues which are seen by many but they are silent or they are afraid to step out and support facts and truth.

Furthermore, I am writing this blog because I think that this is the best answer which is given why I blog about Israel.

Yet, Montenegrin journalists still keep their focus on questions about my blogs; however, they give me time and space to say my point of view, facts and my experience which I have got while being in Israel.

I think that it is important for people to hear another side of story, story about Israel behind headlines and truly I am thankful for their interest and fair questions about it.
Whenever they publish an article about me or do an interview with me, they mention the fact that I write for Jerusalem Post blogging platform.

I was interviewed today for Montenegrin National Television, we have discussed about dramas which I wrote, books, and furthermore, the headline which was written amazed me: “Montenegrin lady writes for Israeli blogging platform”.

Indeed, I had feeling that I did something useful, maybe one person will open one my blog and start searching real facts about Israel.

I do not write so you would think like I do, but I write to motivate people to search for real facts, to search for truth.

Searching, justice and the truth are maybe three keywords on a question why I write about Israel.

It is amazing to have chance to speak out about your work, I would like to say: “Thank you” to journalists who are giving me that chance.
To summarize, yes it is honor to write for Jerusalem Post blogging platform.
