As my latest article in DeHaan Services, "A Few Free 2012 Halloween Events in Toronto" says, "My list is certainly not complete, but it is a start". I easily found parties for adults, children or dogs that cost no more than being willing to parade in a costume of your own choice.

Well, one asked for a donation to a food bank; another hoped that you would raise funds for a hospital as admission to a fancier party after the parade; but you could still take part in some festivities for as close to free as you could cut it.

Naturally my Xanga blog ("Are There Any Free 2012 Halloween Events in Toronto?") throws its weight behind this thrifty article.

Two Free Writing Tips for Hallowe'en 2012

This free writing tip is about culling, cutting and postponing ideas for your articles.

I began researching "Halloween events in Toronto" by looking at items in the City of Toronto events listings.

I was overwhelmed by the number of possibilities, and decided to cull and cut.

Then I postponed those events which actually charge admission. I should write a separate article about those.

The key point is that one must choose whether to write a complete and comprehensive list, risking the loss of focus; or to write a teaser that gives readers options but may miss some of the details.

My bonus writing tip is to decide how to order and arrange your material. In this case, I went with chronological order, including start date, start time and whether the event finishes on the same day.

I could have chosen alphabetical order, or perhaps geographical from south-west to north-east.

The point is to assure your readers that you know where you're going and will help them enjoy getting there.

Hopefully my readers will enjoy getting to one or more of these free Hallowe'en events 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.
