My latest DeHaan Services article about an upcoming summer Toronto event is "Where to Watch the July 2012 Toronto Triathlon Festival Races".

Although the official web site does a fine job of guiding competitors, it says little to the friends, relatives or curious onlookers who would want a vantage point from which to watch the races.

Promoting my July 2012 Toronto Triathlon Article

As usual, my Xanga blog ("Spectators' Guide to the Toronto Triathlon Festival 2012") also promotes my article.

Writing Tip from this Triathlon

Today's writing tip is much like yesterday's; it is either important or it's just at the top of my mind.

Just as when I wrote "The Two-Weekend 2012 Beaches Jazz Festival Toronto", I took a specific point of view to write the article. For the triathlon, it seemed that spectators were not given all the information they might want.

So, again, I tried to find a need and meet it. I think the appropriate approach to almost any informational article is to ask "What is needed, and by whom"?

    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.
