Today, Environmental Graffiti published my article, "Is the Beloved Polar Bear Truly an Endangered Species?".

"Encounter with a Polar Bear" by Aramisse

For those who seek polar bear pictures and polar bear facts, this article gives an introduction to the marine mammals who are so cute...unless you are a seal.

It also asks what, if anything, has endangered polar bears?

Writing Tip: Choose popular topics whenever possible.

I chose the topic of "an animal that is an endangered species" for Environmental Graffiti because it generates a lot of page views for me. The "polar bear" came up as a favourite animal. As well, Knut had been in the news earlier this year.

I usually see an increase in page views right after a new article is published at Environmental Graffiti, but the last topics on "useful plants" did not generate as much traffic as some other topics. With luck, I will find a spike in readership for May 17-19 or so.

Another writing tip is to cross-publicize wherever possible.  While I have always publicized my articles on my DeHaan Services blog, I have only just begun to also cross-link with my Weebly posts. "Report on Polar Bears: Are They Truly Endangered?" is an example.

    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.
