A Calm Storm

The return of the photoblog! (and other things)

Nylon Parla is back, folks! That’s right.  We have a new crew, new photos, a new mission, and we post every 19 days (which is how long a Baha’i month is).

We take a photo on a particular subject (this month is “Texture“, for example), and the caption relates to the name of the Baha’i month.  This month is “Masá’il”, or “Questions”.

It is great to see how the contributors apply our assignments in different ways.  We’re from all over the world: New York – Amy, London – Ronnie, Paris – Thierry, Quito – Shahriar, Chicago – me, Kent – Ramez.  So go check it out!

Also, if you visit my site (all you RSS folk, come on over), you may have noticed I have changed the design a bit.  I got tired of the old one, it was buggy and impossible to manage.  I’m still ironing out some difficult spots, but so far so good.  Let me know if you run into any problems with navigation.

Speaking of design, check out DESIGN THE FAITH: Neysan Z started this site recently, and I always enjoy checking out the new stuff there. From the site: “this design showcase serves to inspire a new generation of creative minds in the baha’i community.”

EDIT: I forgot to blog about this! I can’t believe it. My dear friend Gigi interviewed me about social media for her blog/graduate studies, and you can read the interview here.

  1. yay! I’m excited that Nylon Parla is back on for you’ve got some beautiful photos that need displaying. Also, the new design is great. What I truly love is your “about me” page, which is so insightfully done. 🙂 love ya!

  2. I’m glad you are doing some new and cool things! A suggestion–you may want to make the links underlined or more contrasty next to the regular text–I couldn’t tell that Nylon Parla was a link until I accidentally rolled over. Good luck!

  3. Thanks Ana & Roya, I miss and love you both!!

    Lacey: thanks, I was having trouble figuring out where to change that, actually, but one of my friends told me and I got it sorted now. 🙂

  4. the new look is smooth.
