Today's DAR Blog Updates!

Written by: Ann Dillon, President General

As you are reading this blog post you may notice that the Today’s DAR Blog and the blog email (if you are a blog subscriber – if not sign up!) look just a little different. Over the past few months we have been working to make some functionality updates to the blog. Most of these updates are on the backend of the blog so you will not notice them, but there are a few updates we hope you will notice and benefit from!

The Today’s DAR Blog is now a “responsive design” meaning that the blog will adjust to your screen size, be it a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop. This update will make the blog easier to read and navigate when you are on the go, as most of us are often.

There have also been some slight changes to the overall look and feel of the blog; most of these updates were done to make the responsive design work more effectively. But you will also notice that the text size has been increased and there is a “Print This Page” button to give a printer-friendly version of the post. We hope this will help you if you are taking the blog to a chapter meeting to read or sharing the information with members who may not be as active on a computer. Additionally we have worked to make updates so there is more information “above the fold” of the page before needing to scroll.

We hope you enjoy these improvements to the Today’s DAR Blog and continue to follow along. Be sure to become a blog subscriber so each new blog post is sent directly to your email inbox and you don’t have to worry about missing any important news or stories from the National Society:  All you need to do to subscribe to the Today’s DAR Blog is click on the Subscribe link below (or Subscribe button found at the very top of the blog) and enter your email address to be included on the blog email list:

I am so pleased that more than 9,000 members are subscribers to the Today’s DAR Blog – but that also means that there are around 176,000 Daughters who are not subscribed to our blog and not receiving the latest news and updates about our National Society. Being a blog subscriber is a great way to stay engaged and informed about the most recent activities DAR members can be involved in around the country and stories about the incredible treasures that our National Headquarters holds. I hope that all of you will actively encourage your friends, and other members in your chapter or state, to subscribe to and follow the Today’s DAR Blog. Thank you!
