"Iraq War Protest at Queens Park, Toronto" image by Commodore Gandalf Cunningham
Personally I doubt there will be protests at Queen's Park on New Year's Day, but my "Attend a 2013 New Year Levee in Toronto" covers even that remote possibility.

Perhaps the most useful feature of my latest DeHaan Services article is the special TTC deal on its Day Pass.

Publicity for my Toronto New Year Levees 2013 Article

My Xanga blog ("Transit to a Toronto New Year Levee") adds publicity but little more.

One Festive Writing Tip for a Toronto New Year Levée

While I like to think that my every article has value, today's writing tip is to go the second mile for your readers...when appropriate.

This DeHaan Services article was already getting lengthy, by covering just three Levées on New Year's Day. I could have chosen to include some later Levées by other politicians, but I also needed to explain why so many others were left out.

Then I wondered whether the TTC would provide their usual Sunday "Day Pass" deal for New Year's Day. I checked their web site and found that they actually extend the deal for several days.

That data would be most beneficial to the most readers; and I hadn't thought of checking until deciding that whether my article needed to be shorter rather than longer.

So "in with transit" and "brush off the politicians". In my view, that gave the most benefit to the most readers who might consider attending a

    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.

    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.
