Did you know that you can create a toolbar for your website / blog that includes all of your own content and most visited sites? I didn’t but my husband did so when I told him I was spending a lot of time logging-in to my DES blogs, facebook, twitter and other social media accounts and finding the websites I visit on a daily basis, he kindly said to me “no worries, leave it with me and I’ll sort something out for you”.
I’m no expert but he is and as per magic and in no time he created a DES Awareness toolbar where I could easily in just one click have access to all my “DES stuff”. Many of you won’t need this but if like me you need to have access to all the great work DES advocates around the world are doing in just one click you may be interested in downloading and adding this Free DES Awareness Toolbar to your Bookmarks menu. Or you may decide to create your own customized toolbar. Here are some of the benefits:
