What should the official JBlog Blog look like?

I have had a request to change the colour of this blog so that it is easier to read.

Before any changes are made, I'd like to ask for any preferences of colours for the text/background that you think are appropriate (and easy on the eye).

As the 'official' j-blogosphere blog I think it must reflect what (the majority of) j-bloggers prefer, as diverse and varied as our community may be.

If you have any image/logo/symbol/design ideas also let us know. I am working on some ideas but we can incorporate other concepts if they are j-blog-appropriate!

Leave your suggestions in the comments or feel free to email!

I'm thinking of blue and and white, because of the associating with Israeli flag. We don't necessarily have to have blue text on white background or vice versa, but it could be a theme in the design. And maybe we could somehow incorporate Star of David, Israeli flag, menorahs, or other popular symbols. I know it sounds pretty vague, but what I'm seeing is the banner of the name shaped like the Israeli flag with the word "JBlogosphere" inside in big block letters and with each of Jewish symbols - perhaps a Scroll, a Star, a Menorah, and a another object in each corner, kind of holding it up.

yeh, definitely something associating with israel.

what i've started doing is making some little images (avatar sized) with an israel/aliya (living it, thinking of it) as suggested by jameel.

what you've said is a good start for a banner concept.

i've been thinking about that too, mainly how to represent such a diverse international community in a simple design.

What OY said. :)

It should be more Jewish than Israeli/Zionistic, but have both.

You want Jewish, not necesarily Israeli? A mezuzah and chanukiya. Shabbat candles, too, ok Jewish star. Dark midnight blue on white or cream.

My $.02: a cream-colored background or some otherwise light color. I find the dark backgrounds very uncomfortable to read.

Thanks, Ayelet.
