My latest Environmental Graffiti article is "Three Ways Reindeer Play it Cool".

"One Reindeer Pulling a Sled" by timo_w2s
Reindeer have a remarkable "third method" of keeping cool that surprised researchers.

I have a soft spot for reindeer, having previously written "Was Santa Claus the First to Domesticate Reindeer?" and "The Reindeer Superpower: Ultraviolet Vision".

As always, I also publicize my article in DeHaan Services, although "Reindeer Keep a Cool Head" does not add much to the discussion.

Writing Tip

Today's writing tip spins some of my recurring wisdom.

Keep an eye out for new variations on your previous themes. In this example, I had written about reindeer a couple times before. When I saw the news item about the reindeer cooling system, I knew that I already had some images for the topic and some background knowledge.

This differs from "plan and write a series", because you don't have to start with a group of articles in mind. Just keep an interest in old topics and see whether you can say something fresh about it.

    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.
