Welcome to Dartbeat!
It has always really bothered us that The D’s old blog was called Above the Fold. Like, come on, The D doesn’t even have a horizontal fold. Nothing can be above a fold that doesn’t exist.
So when we took over The D last term, the ’12s Directorate knew we had to do something about this terrible problem, and quickly.
But as it turns out, there’s nothing quick about creating an entirely new website and blog personality. We brainstormed, tinkered, designed, edited and survey-monkeyed for months, until we’d all had so many coffees and Diet Cokes that our hearts simultaneously exploded.
And in that moment, it came to us! Dartbeat! The blog that is so hip, so on, so fun, so fast that it makes your heart stop. Or something like that.
So here it is, The D’s new baby, the vision we’ve been working towards and smiling about for weeks. It has a new name, a new look and even a new section — Pop, for all your Dartmouth pop culture needs!
We couldn’t be prouder of our new baby blog, but we know there’s always room for improvement. We want to know what you like, what you don’t like, and what you don’t get. So please, try out Dartbeat and let us know what you think.
We hope you love it. We hope you talk about it. And most of all, we hope you read it.
