My latest DeHaan Services article, "To Untangle Two Toronto Triathlons in 2012", is a guide to the two triathlon events that will be held in Toronto in the summer of 2012.

While following up on "Prepare for the 2012 Toronto Triathlon Event" yesterday, I learned that there is another triathlon in Toronto. It has a different date, venue, organizer, and set of distances.

It seemed that the least I could do was to share this with my readers, who might otherwise be as confused as I was when I first found the references.

As always, I also publicize my article in my Xanga blog ("Two Toronto Triathlons in 2012").

Writing Tip

This writing tip might be new (to this blog).

Follow up on previous news items.

Pay special attention to your popular articles, since people are still reading them.

Also follow up if you had written about a topic ahead of time. I had only expected to be able to add a few words to my older article, and only if the organizers had released any new information. My specific goal was to pass along "where to register for the race", since I had not learned that back in October.

Here is an example of a different opportunity to follow up. Suppose you had written about "flu shots" early in the season. You could follow up with "vaccination rates went up/down or held steady", as well as "health officials report more/fewer/similar# of cases of influenza".

You're creative about your topics. Be creative in finding ways to keep your readers informed about the aftermath.

To use a sports metaphor: don't just swing, follow through.

    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.
