If you’re writing a paper and came across my blog while researching your topic, then welcome! I hope that you find some useful information in my posts. As a graduate student I hold my research up to a high standard and use primary sources whenever possible (and list them when I remember to…!)
Depending on the project you are working on, your teacher/professor may or may not consider a blog as a valid source for information. The best way to make sure is to ask them! Then, make sure you know how to cite whatever post you are using.
How to cite my blog (or any blog, for that matter):
Wilson, Rebecca. “Camilla of the Volscians: Series Introduction.” Web log post. Otrera Online. N.p., 2 Jan. 2015. Web. 27 May 2015. <http://otreraonline.com/2015/01/02/camilla-of-the-volscians-introduction/>.

Need more help?
If you are working on a subject that I have covered in my blog and want additional information or sources, don’t be afraid to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. While I cannot help in writing assignments or doing homework for you, I am happy to discuss ideas and help guide you towards sources on your topic.
Additionally, if you have any other academic questions, you can send those to me too – whether it be about university life, paper formatting, going into Classics, study skills, anything! I will do my best to get back to all emails within 24 hours.
