The Blog’s New Clothes

We’re reading Parashat Tetzaveh this week, known to a friend of mine as the “Fashion Parashah.” In it we learn all about the priestly vestments that Aaron and his sons will wear.

My blog has been wearing the same outfit since 2010, through 618 posts. I woke up today and decided it was time for a new look. I’m still not sure how I feel about it, but it is clean and readable and I think it will be friendlier for folks reading via tablet and smartphone. If anything about it is acutely uncomfortable for you, let me know. WordPress is a powerful platform, and I have options.

  1. Rabbi Ruth,

    Hope I’m not the only one who feels this way, but the new format is a bit bold and large for reading on my I-Mac screen. You may be correct in that your readers using a Smartphone or tablet find it easier to read, I am finding it like sitting in the front row of a movie theater. Just my opinion…

    1. Thanks, Sheila! I appreciate the feedback. I had been concerned that the old theme (that’s what wordpress calls them) had such teeny fonts that people couldn’t read easily. Your feedback is very helpful. Don’t worry, this is a work in progress.
