When writing articles it’s a good idea to submit extra little tidbits of information. This could be little factoids about your subject that a reader can browse over quickly. The extra tidbits are put on the sideline of your article and refered to as a SIDEBAR.
Sidebars can consist of a photo, poem or quote. Generally sidebars are limited to 500 words of text. They are great if your article has run over in words and you want to keep information attached to your article. You can simply put it in a sidebar format and boom, all done.
