Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes!


Dear Readers,

Welcome! You may have noticed our new letterhead. We hope you like it, 'cause that's not all that's new around here. Over the past month and a half or so, our precious little blog has been going through early-onset puberty, that is a few changes.

Our fearless and frequently airborne founder Daniel has given up his full-time posting in favor of graduate school and other, you know, real-world pursuits. But he has given us his word that he'll be back from time to time to drop a guest post or two. To see some of his best and brightest 'til he gets back, check out Flying and Fritters, and Ink.

But it's not only good-byes! Here's what's coming up over the next few weeks (and it will take some time, so please be patient while we work out the specifics).

We've added a new Q&A page to address some of those blog-related questions we've been asked in comments, by email, and in person.

We've edited our About page to reflect Daniel's new life-steps, but also to officially welcome The Ginger Man to our guest-writer roster. That being said, we are looking for another writer to join Arbitribe. If you are interested, please contact either Tzvi or Aliza, comment on this post and leave some sort of contact information, or email us at arbitribe@yahoo.com.

Last, but not least, we're thrilled to announce the launch of two, count 'em, two new features, to be helmed by Tzvi and Aliza, respectively. The first is a series of music-centric posts written by the Metal Jew himself. Music seems to come up often in Tzvi's posts, and it's a very important factor in his life, so it seems only fair to create a space dedicated specifically to all things musical. In said space, anything goes as long as it is in any way related to music, and this way he will be able to talk about it at will and not mess with the regular posting schedule.

The second is less blog-posty and more Aliza's response to peer pressure and badgering. That's right, folks, we're adding a webcomic to our lineup. The brand-new, tentatively titled Some Other Nights will follow the adventures of a group of young, Jewish, very confused twenty-somethings (yes, hipsters, we did just use that term) living in that warm haven of Jewry, Washington Heights (we can hear you booing, but you can't come in). Stay tuned for its official launch at the end of the month (and by that we mean Tishrei, not October... although they do line up rather nicely this year, don't they?)!

Is that it? I think that covers it. We're going into this new year with a bang, and we'll see where this little expansion takes us. Let us know what you think of these changes (seriously, or else we'll assume you love it so much you want it sent to your phones and inboxes), and what else you'd like to see around here. Really, it works. You got that webcomic, didn't you?

Thanks for reading us! G'mar Chatimah Tovah, and here's to a great new year!

Peace and Snark,

The Arbitribe Team
