Hi everyone. Those of you who have been with us for the past 8 years years have enjoyed a few different versions of our website. It’s time again for a new Mondoweiss.
Monday morning Mondoweiss will relaunch with a brand new design. Over the past year we’ve seen strong growth in our readership — meaning higher traffic and more impact in the conversations around the events in Israel/Palestine and the broader Middle East. With that in mind we worked with talented designers to build a site that will help us grow the high quality independent reporting and analysis you have come to depend on.
You can see a sneak preview of the new Mondoweiss in the photo above. This design will not only look better and be more user friendly, it also allows us to more easily develop the site, incorporate new functionality and improve the overall performance. We have big plans for the future of Mondoweiss, the personal blog Phil launched over eight years ago now sees tens of thousands of visitors every day.
This redesign is a key part of those plans, but so are you, our readers and community members. Running a website of this scale requires substantial resources, both in terms of people and technology costs. Thanks to everyone who gave to our summer fundraising drive and if you didn’t please consider making a tax-deductible donation today to help us continue to bring you the excellent reporting you need. You can click the link above or right here to visit our donation page. Once there you have the option of giving one time, or making recurring donations. We appreciate all the support from current and future supporters!
As is always the case with these things, this website relaunch will not be without some rockiness and we’ll really appreciate your patience. Although we’re confident in the new Mondoweiss site, there will be features from the current site that will not be present on the new site. Please bear with us! There will be ample opportunity for you to let us know what features you want or miss on the new site.
We’ll see you on Monday!
