A New Look.

I've been Jonesing for a new look for a while now (I can't even remember when I opened up my last blog layout, but since then, this blog has grown and grown and grown and I need more coffee!), and this is what I've come up with.

Do you like it? Do you not like it? Give me your feedback, and we'll go from there.

I hope y'all had an easy fast (tzom qal), although someone pointed out on Facebook that maybe all this easy fasting is why we haven't seen much change in our situation, eh? Here's to hard, painful, exhausting fasts in the future!

I like it, Chaviva. Much better. Softer look.

I'll miss the old layout, but do love the new one. It seems more welcoming somehow.

Yes, I like it. I have no control over my urge to change my blog look, having done it more times than I care to think...!

I like the new layout. Disagree about easy fasts though. As someone who doesn't fast brilliantly, from a family of people who fast badly, nothing destroys concentration on the themes of the day more than having a terrible headache and feeling sick. One Tisha B'Av I fasted so badly I threw up during mincha -didn't even have time to take my tefillin off. You can guess what my kavannah was like during davenning that day. What we need are meaningful fasts.

Love it :)

YAY! So glad y'all are diggin' on it. I also threw up a new photo to reflect some hair-coverin' lifestyle change.

@Mottel I shop the pre-fab layouts for the ones rarely used that are beautiful. I can suggest a few sites to you, if you want!

@Daniel I completely agree with you. Meaningful over easy/hard fasts.

I love it! I will miss the old layout, but this one is very welcoming and happy :)

By the way, you should look into getting a Formspring.me account! Formspring.me is a website where, once you set up your account, people can anonymously (or not) directly ask you any question that their hearts desire. Then you answer it, and it is displayed for all the world to see! I think it would be a great resource for your readers, especially those looking to or going through the conversion process!!

:) peace

@Anon TA DA! Ask and you shall receive. There's an "ASK ME" form on the right column now. Let's see how it goes!

I like it. It loads faster (and, being a web developer by profession, I can appreciate that). And the colors are nice. :)
