| May 29, 2009

When considering how to add a blockquote to your professional blog, first locate a block of text from another blog or similar source you wish to use.

Blockquotes add variety to the text of any post and are a more permanent and visual way to incorporate information from an external source into your post than a simple hyperlink.

To add blockquotes simply:

Your blockquote should look like this in it's HTML form:

<blockquote><em>Here is my happy blockquote created especially for this demonstration. I hope you like it!</em></blockquote>

Important Tip: As a best practice include information on the source of your blockquote with a link to it's location on the Web if possible. ALWAYS use citations when quoting someone else's words.
