My latest Suite 101 article is "Will Closing a Canal Avert an Ecological Natural Disaster?".

The potential disaster would occur if alien invasive species of fish were to cross from the canal into Lake Michigan.

"Chicago River" by Bert Kaufmann
Although this picture has the smallest direct relationship to my article, I've been using it because it is the most attractive. (It does indeed relate, because the south branch of the Chicago River is linked to the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal).

I also plan to write at least one Environmental Graffiti article at some point, with a focus on the invasive species rather than the canal.

As always, I also publicized this article in my DeHaan Services blog; today's entry is "Will a Blockade Prevent an Ecological Disaster?".

Writing Tips

Today's writing tips are simple.

First, use an eye-catching image to publicize your articles. Admittedly, I chose another picture to lead the Suite 101 article, because potential readers at that site might make the connection more quickly.

Second, plan for multiple articles based on a single unit of research. It saves time and gives a greater reward.
Just be absolutely sure to change the focus for each article; do not plagiarize yourself.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
