I applied one of my recent writing tips to the new pair of articles in DeHaan Services.

I had decided to get a jump on March Break in Toronto. (That may be better known as "spring break" in the USA. The province calls it the "mid-winter break", but no-one else seems to use that term).

Then I realized the 2015 March Break week includes St. Patrick's Day, so there were really two articles to write.
"Shamrocks for St Patricks Day" by puamelia under CC license.

The 2015 St. Patrick's Day Parade in Toronto

My "2015 St Patricks Day Parade and Races in Toronto" now must cover two road races, in addition to the long-running St. Patrick's Day Parade in Toronto.

These Sunday events take place just before March Break week.

2015 March Break in Toronto

"Enjoy a Frugal Toronto March Break 2015" also starts on the weekend before the school holiday, because several of the special programs do start then.

Of course the main focus covers the week days; but some programs also spill over into the following weekend.

That's actually a great thing, since parents may have trouble taking time from work to escort their children during the work week.

To Repeat a Writing Tip

As soon as I noticed the first St. Patrick's Day event when I was busy researching the 2015 March Break events, one recent writing tip sprang to mind. In case you don't remember... and this was your last chance...

Research multiple topics at once, if they all pop up in the same source material.

In my case, one Toronto museum had planned some St. Patrick's Day activities; more had special activities for March Break.

So I decided to research both at once, keeping separate notes.

Although I haven't yet written about the museum event honouring St. Patrick's Day, it was quite productive for me to spend one session researching multiple topics. Probably more efficient that starting multiple "research, then write" sessions, in my view.

Your results may vary! What you might gain from studying one web site's variety of programs may be lost if your notes get sloppy. And it's not likely to help if you research multiple school assignments at once; not if you're trying to learn and explain new concepts in your essays.

But in some cases, you may find that researching several topics in one web site is efficient. There is a discipline, and your skill can improve, if you try it a few times.

Thanks for reading this writing tip, even if it's posted a second time because I researched the 2015 St. Patrick's Day Parade in Toronto at the same time as the 2015 March Break in Toronto.

    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.
