Best of March 23- March 27

With the unique nature of the blogs this week, our criteria for analysis was a bit different, ranging from informative to intuitive, and everything in-between.

On a side note, Jordi has reminded all of us to correctly use apostrophes in our writing or he will be more infuriated than he is with the supposed profits generated from tv advertising.

Without further ado, This Week’s Best Blogs are…

Most Informative: Anna           Federal Reserve – Independent?

General Tips and Suggestions: 

  • Write with care, compose your posts in Microsoft Word to avoid spelling and grammatical mistakes. Review your posts at least once before publishing. 
  • When adding hyperlinks to your posts, select the text you wish to link and click the Insert/edit link button (or press Alt + Shift + A) you may add links to your comments by using this syntax: <a href=”url“>Link text</a> where url is replaced by the Internet link and Link text is replaced by the text which will appear as the link. 
  • Add more sources to your posts, think from the perspective of a stranger, what claims would they like to see justified?

The Best…

Of the first Two Weeks…

Special thanks to Evan and Leah for being the first two guest editors on the Blog Council. Of course, none of their fine work could be included for consideration.  These were not easy decisions, so kudos to everyone for producing such good content.

The council will provide individual feedback to a few randomly selected authors.  We want to encourage everyone to use more tags, practice embedding photos in posts, and write GOOD titles.

Drumroll….
