How to Link Back to Your Original Source to Give Credit for Blog Posts

handshakeAs a blogger you will often post information that you originally received from another blogger.  It is NOT COOL to just take the information and publish it as your own.  But, we know you wouldn’t do that anyway, right?

What should you do?  Make sure to give credit to your original source.  You can do this by simply starting or ending your post with a reference to were you received the information.  For example, if you are posting about a great freebie you found on another blog, you can end your post with “Thanks, Super Freebie Lady!”  Then make sure you link the name of her blog to her post, or to her home page.  Some bloggers prefer a link to a post, while others prefer a home page link, but as long as you give credit you’re doing fine.
