A note about citing my sources

Hello everyone,

I want to address something I came across while preparing to publish this blog. I will be trying to write thoughtful, insightful, and educational material and it will often cite sources. I will do my best to cite them in APA format (though I know I’m still relearning this format). If APA isn’t possible, I will do my best to cite any ideas or information that I found from another author the best way possible to me. If you are reading and feel as though I have not attributed information to an author, or infringed upon someone’s material in any way, please feel free to contact me at ajl@ajlprofessional.com and we can discuss.

I will be writing and citing with the best intentions in mind on my blog, I definitely do not want to steal or unintentionally harm anyone’s original work. I will write this blog about business/professional topics using a researched-based purview and a conversational voice by comparing, contrasting, and peronsonally opining with the use of other’s interesting ideas, research, or philosophies in order to make the read more, well, rich and interesting. I will be linking to all of the relevant sources so readers can continue reading these external sources for more in-depth, detailed information if they so choose. I hope to write posts similar to a research paper, but a little more free-form.

Below are some online resources regarding citations and blogging. According to these folks, how I plan to write my posts and cite my external sources say I’m golden, but again, if you have concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me via my aforementioned email address. Though I will ALWAYS cite my sources, I am not sure if or for how long I will continue to cite in the APA style.
