One Timely and Memorable Writing Tip
When I began writing articles for online magazines, they advised that we write about "evergreen" topics. These subjects either have lasting value, such as "Three Reasons to Avoid Vitamin D Deficiency", or else should offer seasonal interest.
Clearly these Remembrance Day articles have seasonal interest. However, those online magazines preferred something along the lines of "The Origins of Remembrance Day". Such information would not change year over year; but it would attract some new readers annually.
In my case, I chose a niche in DeHaan Services that offers "upcoming events" rather than "annual evergreen" articles. So I must write new articles each year, ensuring that the events truly take place.
Today's writing tip is that you must understand the longevity of each article you choose to write. Here are three typical timelines:

It was the first time this play would be performed, in response to the first time this GTA city had been noted, by rather slanted history, as having supported that war with strength of arms.
- Annual events must be re-researched and re-written as novel essays. My Remembrance Day articles fall in this category.
- Evergreen articles can last a long time. "How to" topics often possess this type of staying power.
So this writing tip encourages you to understand your goals and strengths. If you hope to write once and earn forever, go "evergreen". If your blog covers sports, be prepared to write after every game.
