Hello Drenda
Thank you for sharing this well-written post. Please permit me to ask the question of how I can be sure that the information I am providing in my post cannot be found somewhere else. In such an instance how can I then be satisfied that such a piece of information could not be misleading?

Hi John, the only way to know if the information in your post is not found elsewhere is to do the research. As I stated in the post, you must research the facts. Typically, news media sources are great solid fact-checkers. You can use plagiarism tools like Grammarly’s plagiarism checker, Duplichecker, and Plagiarism Detector; you can find them on Google. It takes a lot of work to do through research if someone tells you that a product is a great product and it's one of the best. What do you do? First, you will look for people who have already used the product, and they will report the good and evil, and then you can make an informed decision to purchase. You will look at consumer reports and scour the Internet for fact-finding, and there are many different ways to research for information. If you wrote a misleading article, your readers will tell. You that and they might dispute you with the correct fact, you will research it to see if they are right and admit the mistake and correct it. No one can be perfect but just do your best to make sure that does not happen.

Now that is an impressive post Brenda. I really love blogging and, as you have suggested, I am always reviewing my posts. It's funny sometimes, for me anyway, when I look at a post and I look at a phrase or a sentence and have to ask myself 'what were you thinking?' The review helps us to become better at creating copy that is informative and will engage the readers attention. Kudos for spelling it all out...I don't think you could have said it any better!

Grant, thank you. I know for most of us, it's a work in progress. We continue to learn and work on improving our blog post articles. I still have some ways to go, but I am getting there. Thanks for sharing your experience and thoughts here.

Hey Brenda! We're all a work in progress...although perfection is the goal we never really get there but continual progress is the way to are awesome!!!

Aw, Thanks!

you are most welcome!!!!!!

Great info as always Brenda! As bloggers we all must strive to give the best information that we can in order to answer our audiences questions better than the competition!

This will always involve going back to edit and update older posts which we have published!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday my friend! :-)

Great Post Brenda, and as with every community post we write, being an open source platform the title will get found by the search engines and for those that find and read it and many will I'm sure, you ideally will get referrals into WA which will be nice for you.
