My latest article in Suite 101 is "The Origins of the 2010 Lutheran and Mennonite Reconciliation".

It's in their "Mind and Soul" category, but you can find it directly with the above link.

Martin Luther and Menno Simons were somewhat alike, but vehemently disagreed with each other.

My article explains how that feud started, and how events led to the 2010 reconciliation.

(Updated 2012-02-04): As I had hoped, this article is now "featured" on the Mind and Soul topic page in Suite 101, and also on their main page. Note that "now" is a temporary word, especially because writers submit great new articles frequently. Still, it's nice to get the recognition. See my writing tip, below!

As always, I also publicize my article in DeHaan Services ("Why the Lutherans and Mennonites Reconciled") and in my Xanga blog ("Reconciliation between Lutherans and Mennonites").

Writing Tip

Today's writing tip explains why I chose this topic.

First, the Topic Editors at Suite 101 sometimes post requests for articles in their topics. Often this means that a good article has an above-average chance of being featured in that topic.

Second, I have contributed articles in this area.

Third, this happens to be an interesting topic: personalities clashed; life or death decisions were made.

So the writing tip is to track what your readers or editors want; know your own strengths; and deliver when the two mesh.

    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.
