no offence but I have to agree with Rob here, it seems like confusion
between "a side" and "aside" is entering.

when you're working with HTML you shouldn't be thinking about layout, a
document never has a "side bar"; sure it has a footer, a header, some
nav, sections and so forth - but never a "side bar" - if you want to
wrap some sections and nav in a div so you can present it as a "side
bar" then sure, but this is certainly not an aside.

an aside is something that you say that is not directly connected with
what you are talking about.

like when you remember something vaguely related, and spit it out,
because sure it gives some context to what you're saying but could
easily be left out.
