My recent "Find an Ontario Maple Syrup Festival near Toronto in 2015" was inspired by a televised news report, which explained a challenge faced by the local conservation centre in planning their upcoming maple sugar festival.

I did some research to verify what had been said, summarized it, and added pointers to several of the nearby
maple syrup festivals in Ontario. For good measure, I also added a link to for a Kindle collection of maple syrup recipes.

One Writing Tip made from Maple Syrup

I'm tempted to repeat an old writing tip: accept inspiration from any source; be open to noticing topics that you can use.

But here's one new writing tip, instead: once inspired, check the facts from another source before committing them to your own article.

In this case, the TV interview mentioned the weather conditions that challenged the upcoming festival. I knew that the information was accurate.

But I found a reputable online source anyway, double-checked the optimum conditions for harvesting maple sap, and linked back to that URL.

One reason is to ensure your own accuracy. Even if you quote some people directly, it's good to fact-check what they claimed, and note any errors they made.

The other part is to cite your authoritative sources, so your readers will know why they should trust your article.

Thanks for reading my article about several

    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.
