The New Black Creek Pioneer Village Relief Sale Web Site has Opened

Please head for the official site of the Ontario Toronto Mennonite Festival (Black Creek Pioneer Village Relief Sale).

2011 MCC Quilt Auction and Relief Sale at Black Creek Pioneer Village, Toronto

My “The 2011 MCC Quilt Auction and Relief Sale Event at Black Creek Pioneer Village” article promotes this Toronto event. It is an important annual fundraiser for MCC, an international aid and relief organization.

“Hand-Made Ice Cream”

My article also introduces MCC as well as Black Creek Pioneer Village. Tourists will find the directions, date and time, and cost information especially useful.

Although this Directory puts my article simply into the “article” category, it happens that I invest time and effort into the annual MCC Quilt Auction and Relief Sale at Black Creek Pioneer Village as a volunteer.


Introducing the DeHaan Fitness Site

My recent “DeHaan Fitness and Weight Control” blog on Blogspot was launched without being properly welcomed here in the DeHaan Directory. That’s a shameful admission in an age when all content must be promoted and cross-referenced to within a centimetre of its digital life.

Primary Purpose for the DeHaan Fitness and Weight Control Site

To quote myself, my primary goal for that site is to “help visitors with useful fitness and weight control information”.

Accidental Cross-Training Led to a Deliberate Article

My “Fortunately Running is Cross-Training for Cycling” relates how I, a runner, came to be involved in a 100Km (Americans should think “60 miles”) bicycle ride with a group of friends. My article includes comments and a tip on cross-training.

So I took advantage of that experience to write an article. It is important to freshen every web site with new content. Fitness is very relevant to that site, and personal experience as a participant can be a refreshingly helpful perspective when someone becomes too comfortable as a “coach” or “trainer”.

Two New Posts at Decoded Science: Curcumin and Fibonacci

The Claims for Curcumin

My “Brief Survey of the Health Benefits of Curcumin” was my first article in the Health section of Decoded Science. As noted in my Weebly article, “Curry Versus Cancer via the Curcumin in Turmeric“, this D.S. article was actually one of three based on research into turmeric, curcumin and related health claims.

The Fibonacci Sequence

I also followed up in the Mathematics section with “Introducing the Fibonacci Sequence“.

"Floral Fibonacci Number" by Mike DeHaan

Fibonacci numbers arise in a variety of lifeforms, including flower petals. The Fibonacci sequence is a gateway to several important concepts in mathematics. This article explains how to calculate Fibonacci numbers.

I publicized this article in my DeHaan Services home site in the blog post “The Fibonacci Sequence at Decoded Science“.

Business Tips for Freelance Writing

Note that I use a variety of blog sites to publicize and provide backlinks to my freelance articles. The hope is that these links will drive traffic to the articles, whether by people who read and click through, or by giving more “search engine credibility” to the original article.
