Once again I need to save a pair of my original images here in my Blog of Writing before including them in an article in Decoded Science.

My article is "L'Hopital's Rule is a Hospital to Cure Ailing Functions".

One of the other issues is whether a URL will pick up the 'ô' with the circumflex accent.

"Image of X-Squared over X" by Mike DeHaan
First we have a function that has a "zero divided by zero" problem.

"Image of -1/X^2 over -2/x^3" by Mike DeHaan
Secondly, I needed a first derivative with an "infinity divided by infinity" problem.

Cross Link from "DeHaan Services"

As always, I also promoted my article from my DeHaan Services site. "Send that Sick Function to L'Hospital's Rule" is pure publicity; this Blog of Writing article has the added value of three writing tips.

Writing Tips

My first writing tip is to keep close focus on the subject matter. When I started writing the "L'Hôpital's Rule" article, I realized that I had begun to prove several minor points. Yes, this would be important in a scholarly thesis. No, this is a useless distraction in a popular article.

My second writing tip is to know the exact importance of the subject material. Since L'Hôpital's Rule deals with the slope at a point, I expected that it was all about finding that slope. No, it really is about...well, read my article. The writing tip is to understand this before getting sidetracked and wasting time on a dead end.

My final writing tip for today is that the 'ô' is a bad choice in an online article's title. At least the Weebly editor simply deleted it...which makes the URL pretty useless for SEO purposes. (If you need to know what "URL" and "SEO" mean, please leave a comment to let me know that I need to write an article explaining these terms).

That may be a record: three writing tips in one blog entry! You're welcome.

    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.
