Until now, I have focused on trying to give a summary of the events in Islamic finance that I think are important, but I often resort to bullet points to give the more 'minor' articles coverage. Going forward, I am going to eliminate this because it is too time consuming with relatively limited benefit to readers. As you may have noticed, I have added a feed from Opalesque's Islamic Finance Briefing. This is the best source I have found for current information on new articles and I think it and other feeds to be added will be a better and more up-to-date source for current news on Islamic finance. The blog will focus on the articles that I feel deserve additional commentary (supplemented with more focused commentary in the weekly newsletter, which you can sign up for on the left side of the blog). I think this change will benefit both the reader through more attention to the commentary and my increasingly busy schedule and result in more frequent posting. I welcome comments on what is valuable and what is better left to other sources either through comments or by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, I will try to promptly return any direct emails about the blog or questions about Islamic finance and I hope the change to the blog will make it easier for me to reply quickly.
