Picture"Major US Shooting Incidents by Date" : Image by Mike DeHaan.
Welcome to this Preview article, in which I establish a copyright to images that I personally created.

I'm publicizing my upcoming Decoded Science article, "Trending Statistics for Major Fatal US Shootings", for which I created these images. (Now published!)

To establish copyright for a picture or diagram, I simply publish that image in a blog that I control, before sending it to another site to illustrate an online article.

After that, I return here to publicize that article and add a writing tip.

I also publicize my article in DeHaan Services, and often add a Canadian note for my fellow citizens. Unfortunately "Statistical Trends on Major Shootings in the US and Canada" is still a bit of a work in progress; no-one has spoon-fed me a report on Canadian shootings.

Take a Writing Tip from your Editor

This is such a simple writing tip, that I can't believe I haven't mentioned it before.

I wrote the article because my editor at Decoded Science pointed out the topic and some references.

Remember that editors rise to their positions by virtue of having an instinct for readers' interests and worthwhile topics, as well as a professional ability to reduce cluttered prose. So take their suggestions seriously!

Thanks for reading about how I came to write about the statistics of major fatal shootings in the US.

    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.
