Information Literacy

To answer my last question, "How do you cite that?"

The mechanical part of the answer is simple... following is the citation in APA format...

Ratprincess. (2009, May 31th). Reflection: My blog so far.

However, one shall never forget to ask other questions like the following to ensure the validity of the information being cited...

  1. Where is the source from or is it a proven source for valid information?
  2. Who is the author?
  3. How do you know whether there is any beef in the things being addressed?
  4. Are there references to other respectable sources?

On a second thought, perhaps we shall not cite it since... God knows how many gazillion blogs are over the web, heaven knows what da Ratprincess is (not to mention that I am still having this identity crisis thing and I am not quite sure yet who I really am 8-O lol), and, in addition to them bad English used in the writing, there wasn't any references from respectable sources such as academic journals other than self-referencing to previous blog posting by the same author... 8-O lol oops...
