Help out a DDFer with a Torah venture
« on: March 31, 2014, 09:50:23 PM »
I just launched a Torah website designed to make Torah more shareable and accessible through social media. The goal is to reach people who would otherwise not be spending so much time learning by making articles that are engaging and informative, while being creative and quick to read.
The kind of stuff the website has is things like "7 Rashis You Don't Want to Miss This Week" and "12 Things You Didn't Know About the 12 Tribes." Or some more advanced stuff, like "Why you should wear your tzitzis tucked in/ wear them out."
I realize this type of site is below the levels of many DDF'ers, but if you could check out the site and maybe share it with your family and friends, I think we could be onto something special. TIA.
The website is BuzzTorah.com

Looks like a good idea IMO. If you get some good articles this can succeed.
Hatzlocha!

Yours Truly  :D
Unless you don't consider me a proper "DDFer," in which case I guess you're just helping out a fellow Jew.

Great idea.  You definitely are using the current buzz format of asking questions to capture attention.  Much hatzlocho!

OP: Just a suggestion, maybe make the website in the first post a working link. More of a chance people will end up at the site.

Yup, I see it now.  I had only read the new posts.

The point was that it should be in the OP
Hadn't occurred to me to make a wiki for someone else's thread.  I'll learn all these unwritten rules and 'chaps' in time.
