I love your site and have held you up as an example for my college journalism & digital media students. One suggestion I would make is to be careful about overusing “allegedly.” If your story is solid, i.e. from police reports sources cited, it’s fine. Allegedly doesn’t lesson the sting of accusation for the person you’re writing about or innoculate you if the story isn’t accurate. Hope you don’t mind a little advice from the peanut gallery. And, hey, would you be willing to Skype in as a guest speaker for my students next semester? I teach at St. Edward’s University, in Austin, Texas.
hey boo boo if u don’t know how to spell my last name correctly then maybe u shouldn’t post about me:)
