Day 17 (7-6) Results

PLEASE REMEMBER, It’s OK to quote stuff from other sources but it if you don’t follow the rules for the contest you WILL be disqualified. Things you need to remember:

  1. ALL content from other sites taken word for word MUST BE IN A QUOTE BLOCK.
  2. If you are using ANY stats or facts that someone has published you must give them credit
  3. Any content quoted does NOT count toward your 351 words for the contest qualification since your content must be in your own words. Only your “own” words count toward the 351 minimum required.
  4. YOU MUST REFERENCE where you got the quote that you put in the block quote and it is polite to link to the page you got it.
  5. I DO NOT recommend using copied content from newspapers, magazines, or anything that is published on paper or syndicated like the Associate Press stuff.

Using other people’s content can get you in trouble, so please do your own research on what is and is not plagiarism. Do a google search and a lot of the colleges have articles on the subject. Referencing might not be enough in some cases, so learn what you can about it since it is a part of blogging.

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

Day 16 (7-5) Results – The Light is Shining at the End of The Tunnel

I am reading a book called “Mastery” that was recommended by an Internet Guru. This is the part of the Challenge where some of us will begin to like, it’s called the plateau.
This is where practice will become easier and soon we will move on to the next level. Great Job everyone!
