New Look


NY/NJ Bengali Blog now has a new look. After procrastinating for a while, I decided to upgrade my wordpress platform to version 3.3.1, all the way from 2.5.1 – a huge jump. During the upgrade process I had to face some hurdles, for which the site was not live for some time. Thanks for bearing with me. But the upgrade was worth it. Hope to keep adding content more frequently in the coming days.
