  1. I hope you mention to N&O writers that citing blogs if they are used for quoted source material or research is a good idea. A nice way to make friends and keep fans. 🙂 Plus linking to sites would be cool too.

    Don’t fear.I mentioned that several times. In fact, I think they may have gotten tired of hearing me say that ;->
    And seriously a quote from source or even another paper should be cited; bloggers deserve at least that kind of respect.
    The recent quote by Jim Brady of the Washington Post (in Editor and Publisher) helped drive the point home from another angle:

    Brady also said his site has drawn traffic by posting links to bloggers who have commented on individual stories. Those links, he said, spark return links. “Bloggers can drive 100,000 page views to us if the link to us.”
