A Word About Sourcing

A friend asked me recently about my sources for this blog.  Since I’m not in college anymore, I’m rebelling against citing every source of my writings in MLA format with footnotes, thank you very much, but I do think that it’s very important for my readers to see where I am getting my information from.  Though my writing style might be somewhat anecdotal, I am striving to relay information that is important not only to me, but should be to you also, and I want to use the most reliable sources to do so.  There are several categories of media that I pull from, but the following is a thorough list that I will update as new sources come about.

 As I said, I am not 100% concerned with footnoting everything that I say here.  Much of it comes from my own experience and conversations. However, I want you to be as informed as possible, and I will do my best to link everything I can to articles and sources that you may find helpful to do research yourself!  Happy reading!
