"Simple Baby Eye Color Predictor" : image by Mike DeHaan
This post begins as another "preview" for an upcoming article. I'm simply claiming copyright for this image. Then my editor split the article into three pieces.

Now "What Eye Color Will My Baby Have? Math For Pregnancy Prediction" was published April 3rd at newly-launched Decoded Pregnancy.

I've also publicized this in DeHaan Services ("Predicting Baby Eye Colour during Pregnancy"), and added a Canadian spin.

On April 7, Decoded Pregnancy published "Will I Have a Boy or a Girl? Predicting Your Baby’s Gender".

"Is math a reliable baby gender predictor?"...as I ask in DeHaan Services?

Finally, on April 12, "How Tall Will Your Baby Be When He Grows Up? Calculating Height Early" went live on the new site.

The final DeHaan Services promotional article in this series is "Math to Predict Height of Your Baby during Pregnancy"

One Clear-Eyed Writing Tip

When publisher and editor Victoria Nicks invited me to write this article, she suggested several potential topics although all dealt with "predicting the baby's characteristics".

When I suggested my ideas for three, she said "Oh no, just pick one".

I wrote about all three anyway, figuring that either it would be a lengthy article or we could split it up. I'd already done the research.

The clear-eyed writing tip is to either give your editor exactly what she requests, or be prepared to see your "masterpiece" after plastic surgery.

The better you know your editor, the closer you can predict the probability of her actions.

You'd have to read the article to decide whether you make more accurate predictions of baby eye colour, gender or height than I made about how my article(s) would fare.

    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.
