Picture"The Princes Gates at the CNE in Toronto" image by Steve Harris (stevenharris)
The CNE in Toronto surprised me this year by the online discount ticket offers.

Oh, did you think this is about being frugal with your ex-spouse? Sorry, that would be some other blog. I wrote about "the Ex", a Toronto abbreviation for "Exhibition".

My DeHaan Services site often previews cheap or free annual events in Toronto. "Enjoy the CNE on the Cheap in 2013" differs because the Canadian National Exhibition advertises heavily and it is not cheap.

But then I found some excellent discount ticket offers. I also knew some other tricks already. So that was enough material for my article.

By the way, the "Princes' Gates" serve as the eastern entrance to the CNE grounds; and

One Writing Tip "on the cheap"

My favourite writing tip is simply to keep your eyes open to new topics.

Here's my new slant on this tip.

Everything started with noticing that the CNE offers online admission tickets. A bit of idle curiosity led me to wonder whether there was a discount. It was not easy to find "how much is it worth" and "how do I qualify".

That's when I realized that there was enough valuable material for an article. If it took me "that long" to answer the question, my readers would find it helpful to read my synopsis before doing their own research.

Your articles might not involve comparison shopping (as this CNE article did); but if you can save readers time and effort related to a topic, they should reward you by reading your next articles.

Thanks for reading about visiting the Ex on the cheap.

    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.
