"Collecting Maple Sap for Maple Syrup" image by Bobolink (Robert Taylor)
My latest DeHaan Services article about annual spring events in Toronto is "Find an Annual Maple Syrup Festival in Toronto, Ontario".

It includes a famous festival in an Ontario town not too far from Toronto, and a brief explanation of why this is a spring event.

One Sweet Writing Tip

I'd taken some notes about these maple syrup festivals a couple of weeks ago, but was busy with other writing tasks. These included events that would occur well before these festivals were scheduled to close.

I also had the nagging feeling that I'd written about them already. However, my trusty logbook told me that they were still in line.

That feeling was only resolved when I added the publicity for the article to my Squiddoo Lens of Annual Toronto Events. Aha! I'd written many of the details there, out of concern that I'd miss this year's opportunity for a feature article.

My sweet writing tip today is to keep organized in a way that suits your work habits.

Some people use sticky notes. Others would make a calendar with start dates and due dates for assignments. In this case, a tickle note in one document with the links to the sources was all I needed to make this article about maple syrup festivals in Ontario into a reality.

    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.
