I love my prayers section, but I have often felt it awkward. People entering my site who are not familiar with my blog yet may not realize there are more posts below. Similarly, when something big happens, like the hurricane, or what happened in the Gush, I want to keep the information ready and avaiallable, but I also want to continue to blog, continue to speak about the other bits and parts of my life. Life does go on, as boring as it may sometimes be.

Sooooooooooooo, I have considered making a second blog, called, at this point, Prayer and Care. It will basically always have two entries; Prayers, a section for people to ask for prayers, and Care where, when there is a major or even minor occurence, I can provide links to sources of help.

Here's the bare bones of the place. What is your opinion? Should there be any other sections? Perhaps a list of organizations that are always there to help? Magden David Ami for exampel. I want to keep this quite simple, and apparently I can't have secondary links, just those imbeded in the entry, which is okay with me at this point.

So nu? Opinions wanted!!!!!

Might you consider having a weekly prayer post. For the most part it will involve cutting and pasting info from previous ones. But it will appear regularly among your regular posts.

It is lovely and easy to use. Thanks a lot!

Keep it as it is, or you just won't get the readership.

I see on the first one you have that you can continue reading by clicking. Why not just make the part we see one sentence and then the continue button? That way, if someone new comes, they can still see a current date on the first screen. OR, why not take them off the sticky top and instead, put them as links on the left -- even put them first, above the calendar, so it's easy to see. Make the font bigger. Whatever it takes.

I kinda agree with "muse".... re: readership!

What esther said. Just have a Prayer and Care section near the top of the sidebar. It's an idea whose time has come! :)
