My latest DeHaan Services article, "Toronto Afrofest 2012 at Woodbine Park", notes that this festival celebrating African cuisine and culture is moving from downtown Queen's Park to the fairly new Woodbine Park in the eastern Beach community.

This image is a nostalgic look at a crowd in Queen's Park in some previous year.

My article provides a few program highlights, explains the location of the park, and links to the organizer's official site.

Naturally, I also promote my article in my Xanga blog ("Toronto Afrofest Moves to Woodbine Park in 2012").

It also links to my "DeHaan Lens of Annual Toronto Events", an ongoing Squidoo project where I try to list and link to all the festivals that I find interesting.

Writing Tip for Afrofest 2012

I'm re-using an earlier writing tip: make your own graphic if it helps the article.

In addition to the image above, which is duly provided under a Creative Commons "for commercial re-use" license, I also marked up a Google map of the area.

This saved a fair bit of descriptive writing, and might make it easier for people to find the venue for Afrofest 2012 in Toronto.

    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.
