My latest DeHaan Services article, "IRIE Music Festival Adjusts to Toronto Violence for Simcoe Day 2012", explains the details behind today's news announcement.

Nathan Phillips Square will host the performances that were not postponed.

My article explains why the organizers made their decision, and what is being offered to the artists originally slated for Yonge-Dundas Square during the upcoming Simcoe Day holiday weekend in 2012.

Publicity for my Toronto IRIE Festival Article

This event is included in my Squidoo lens that tracks all the annual Toronto events that I find interesting: "The DeHaan Lens of Annual Toronto Events".

As well, my Xanga blog ("Some 2012 IRIE Concerts Postponed in Toronto") also promotes my article.

Writing Tip from the IRIE Reggae Festival in Toronto

Today's writing tip puts the emphasis on preparation and flexibility.

I had prepared some time ago, by researching a significant number of annual Toronto events that I'd like to write about. One was the IRIE concert, which had a brief note in my Squidoo lens.

Today I saw a brief note in the newspaper about a "cancellation". I quickly wrote the main article, and kept digging for the official news release. That's the first place where the "postponement" was given a specific date.

The writing tip is to be ready to write or update the articles in your niche when news becomes available. That's how I scooped the details in my article about the 2012 TD IRIE Music Festival.

    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.
