A Source of Inspiration

As you guys begin the first blogging period, you may be wondering what sources, or how many you need to include in your post. While you don't want to bog down the class with tons of information, it is actually easier to write a good blog post when using more than one source--you may find yourself summarizing an article if that's your only source.

In fact, I encourage you to find two competing articles, then to draw your own conclusions about which side provided the strongest evidence. You don't have to be 100% sure that this side is flawless (remember, this class often deals more with questions than concrete answers).
