Nothing says "frugal" and "fit" for the New Year like getting some exercise on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day.

Naturally my DeHaan Services article, "Economy Exercise or Free Rides on New Years Eve 2012 in Toronto", includes running and skating for fitness; free transit for the weary in the GTA; and even some no-charge musical entertainment in the great outdoors.

What winter events in Toronto offer these bargains? Um, yes, read my article and learn.

Publicizing my Economical New Year's Eve Article

As usual, my Xanga blog ("Frugal Festive Fun for 2012 New Year's Eve in Toronto") provides the same publicity.

One Frugal Writing Tip for an Economical New Year's Eve

Today's writing tip is to provide value to your readers.

My concrete example is that the article actually covers a lot of different points, each of which could be explained in greater depth.

However, I was in a rush to write the article so it would be published in time for my readers, and also so I could get some other work finished on deadline.

I was sorely tempted to say, for example, "If you use transit in the GTA, go look up the information yourself". I'd noticed that my one reference article had not done this, and I didn't want to take the time myself.

As well, if I use GO Transit or York Regional Transit, I'd probably have their sites bookmarked in my web browser or app'd on my smartphone.

But if I'm going to mention something, I should surely add that bit of service. So I did. And so should you.

Especially if you're writing about special events like getting free trrunning or skating on New Year's Eve 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.
