The Why, How and When of Using Quotations on Your Blog

I have this problem.

Quote:
Do you ever use quotations on your blog – words from other bloggers, writers, or experts in your industry?

Many bloggers rarely or never do … and they’re missing a huge opportunity.

If you’ve never even thought about using quotes, or if you’re worried about getting it wrong, this post is for you. Before we dig in too far, though, let’s take a look at four key reasons why quotes are so useful.

I also never use the blockquote html tag, but I think it's not that big of a deal...

You can always just put your quote in quotation marks and cite the source, I don't think the html will do much of a difference... You can just to tab to indent the text and you get almost the same effect as using a blockquote..

The blog post was so poorly written it was actually ironic! Guest Poster...hahaha.

Quotes should be used when and how grammatically required, simple. Another blog post for the sake of blogging.

Poorly written and formatted. Sorry but it has to be said.
