The Seforim Blog is now in its bar-mitzvah year and over the past thirteen years has grown exponentially. There are currently over 2,000 email subscribers and an estimated 16,000+ hits a month from all over the world and nearly 7 million hits over the lifetime of the site. The site has published nearly 950 articles from over 100 different authors. Articles from the site have been cited in traditional Torah works, academic journals and books and have even formed the basis of entire works.
This period of growth, however, has come with some costs - both monetary and for the readers. The site is currently very unwieldly lacking a unified homepage with articles listed chronologically, making it difficult to quickly locate relevant articles. Additionally, the site hosts numerous related articles, for example, customs relating to Chanukah or haggadot, yet those are not easily located or displayed. Similarly, articles by author are difficult to find and require going through pages of single articles to locate the specific article of interest. Furthermore, for the past few years, we have hired someone to prepare and post articles. We have eschewed commercializing the site and that cost has been borne by the editors and a handful of generous donors.
To assist us in making significant improvements in the site we are for the first-time asking readers and those who benefit from the site to donate to help defray the costs of the upgrade and ongoing expenses. The site is incorporated as a 501(c)(3) charity and all donations are tax deductible and we will provide documentation of any donations. Please donate generously. Remember, donating=loving.
