Welcome to our website

What is a blog? The simple answer is: it’s a website. The long answer is long.

There are personal blogs (that can be more like a diary) and corporate or business blogs (to promote events and boost PR). Within these are genres: political blogs, travel blogs, fashion blogs, project blogs, education blogs, niche blogs, classical music blogs, quizzing blogs, question blogs, and legal blogs (often referred to as a blawgs). Sadly, there are also spam blogs that steal content from other websites; these are known as a Splogs.

SI-DAF has created this blog so you can get to know our club – who we are and what we do. As I’m sure you’ll figure out, we have have fun and impact the lives of women and girls along the way!
