Quadrantid Meteor image by Navicore
The article's leading image shows the gibbous moon waning.

As always, I also promote my article in DeHaan Services, where "Prepare for the 2012 Quadrantid Meteor Shower" actually adds one fact about the Quadrantids that is omitted from the Suite 101 article and my other promotional articles!

Let me also link to my Xanga blog's promotional article "Will You Watch the Quadrantid Meteor Shower?", although it does not add anything to what you found here.

(Updated 2012-01-17) As I explain in "Preview of Non-Commutative Conditional Probability", I will also include a link to one article that I used for reference:
PhysOrg. "Quadrantid meteors set to perform on January 4th".

Writing Tips

Today's writing tip involves selecting a leading image.

Within the Suite 101 article, the most relevant image, shown above, has a completely black thumbnail preview. It's terrible as an advertisement.

So I chose to feature a great picture of the moon in Suite 101. The moon actually is important to the article, and makes a great leading image. It may not be the best for the content of the article, but that could not be helped. The thumbnail of the moon is infinitely more appealing that a black thumbnail.

Writing Tip:
Choose leading images that will bring readers to your articles.

    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.
