Linking to sources in your posts

If you’ve tried to import links into your posts to guide readers to a source, you may have noticed they can be super-long and clumsy, like this:

URL BEFORE BITLY

http://mysite1.com/?epl=4donafvFK3fMXxZXMWQRQLodmPchoXCK5C7-kbBv_agkwlkJrZAoaSDVUlhqFmUqt0f8c2Q6jF6GO6DNMnbidqRsikriF-IEBEt5okmICLEB0FxP36GrsxoPGQ3SGBo1PVR7itDUA4CYmjypn5gi  

Help is available from any number of free link-shortening sites such as bit.ly and 3.ly.

URL AFTER BITLY

https://bit.ly/34ewHkm

Let’s practice.

  • Navigate to any website with a long url.
  • Copy the url onto your clipboard. OR copy the super-long url from the block above.
    • (Ctrl+C, or ⌘+C, or right-click plus Copy function)
  • Navigate to a link-shortening site.
    • bit.ly or 3.ly or tinyurl.com
    • bit.ly requires a free account
    • 3.ly and tinyurl.com will permit immediate shortening without an account
  • Paste your long url link into the provided url field.
  • Choose the “shorten link” command (language may vary).

Protocol/Mechanics

  • The Recent Comments section of the sidebar should look representative of the most interactive members of the class. Success in this course means engaging in the recursive process of writing (incorporating the ideas of others, synthesizing them with your own, sharing the results with the World Laboratory of Ideas, and suffering—I mean celebrating—the reactions of others, incorporating those new ideas, and so on).
Recursive, Cancel Culture
  • This sort of conversation should be happening in the feedback cycles for your White Paper. When it does, your avatar will find a regular spot in the “Recent Comments” section of the blog, where it belongs as often as possible.
  • Do not wait for your Professor to initiate these dialogues.
  • However, in many cases, your Professor has already initiated these dialogues and is impatiently awaiting your engagement. 🙂
  • When you feel lost, need clarification, want to bounce a new idea off of someone, need help finding a source (or knowing what terms to search for), drop a comment on your White Paper (as soon as you have one) or on whichever of your posts is most appropriate.

      The class started by talking about different ways to put links when doing the white paper. We then talked about the feedback on our work and how we need to respond to it. The writing center rowan.mywconline.com. The writing center is a great resource that can be used by us students. We also went over quotes, and we received an assignment on it that’s due later tonight. The bobblehead strategy is getting the audience to nod with you in agreement.

      Notes 10/7
      Today we started talking about how to shorten URLs. Navigate to any website with a long url. You need to copy the url onto your clipboard. OR copy the super-long url from the block above. Navigate to a link-shortening site. bit.ly or 3.ly or tinyurl.com. Bit.ly or 3.ly can also shorten super long links Paste your long url link into the provided url field. Choose the “shorten link” command (language may vary). Communication is very important for this class. You need to react to the feedback and start a conversation so that your writing gets better. You can get help at the writing center. Google scholar is a good source to find other resources. Rowan’s library can also help you find resources. Don’t think about your topic. TALK about your topic. There is a positive and negative value on everything. We learned different structures for sentences and how to quote an author in a text. The trick to the bobblehead strategy is to get your audience to start nodding their head to what you are saying. Your audience might not appreciate being persuaded into agreement by your strategy, but he will find it difficult to take back all the small consensus points you earned on the way to the ultimate approval of your proposal.

      -Using a shortened link for your sources will make your paper come off as cleaner and more organized
      -We should take advantage of being able to comment on our work, and should respond when feedback is given
      -Using our peers as a helping resource is a good way to get feedback, it can help you in the long run to start early
      -Just having a conversation with someone about your thesis could spark a new focus for your hypothesis, and give you more things to research on
      -The Rowan Library has tools for us to use, you can even look up articles that you would have to pay for online
      -We went over good citations, and how you should phrase them to have them be more sophisticated

    -Narrowed down to effects of negative information transference in the celebrity endorsement relationship.
    -What once was a high selling celebrity endorsed product, goes to the sale rack after negative information or events surface about them.
    -When negative meaning is associated with a celebrity this also transfers to what they’re associated
    -This goes in the reverse also (Celebrity actions associated with product, and product associated with celebrity actions)

    In class today, we first discussed how to shorten links so that they are not as long and messy as you collect your sources. You can shorten it with a “bit.ly” and “3.ly” or you can embed the link behind the title of the article. We then practiced shortening article URLs using one of the link-shortening websites. Next, we talked about how feedback and conversations should be a bouncing back-and-forth of ideas regarding your White Paper. If you need another set of eyes on your paper, you can utilize the sources of the Writing Center. You can just schedule an appointment with a student tutor so they can read over your work and provide you feedback. We also went over research tips to help you find sources for your White Paper. We used an example of a past student’s struggle to generate sources on his topic. All he needed to do was to talk about it someone to help shift the focus, which opened new areas of research. You can use Google Scholar to search for your sources by placing quotations around your search terms. You can also use the Rowan University databases as well. We then briefly discussed the proper mechanics of in-text citations. Lastly, we briefly touched on the Bobblehead Strategy. This encourages the audience to agree with smaller proposal claims, which will eventually make it more likely for them to agree with your overall claim.

    – you can attach your links for your papers to the title or when you are referring to the link within your text
    – bit.ly or 3.ly can also shorten super long links
    – replying or commenting on classmates posts is encouraged; not just the professor commenting on each persons post constantly
    – use other students to help answer simple questions you may have
    – you can start revising as soon as you get feedback and post a comment after editing the post, telling David that you revised it
    – students at the writing center can help provide other feedback on how to improve your writing as well; it is a great resource
    – using google scholar will help bring up sources to your specific search with only academic/scholarly websites
    – make sure your citation includes author , “Title” , and “quote.”
    – the bobblehead strategy is a technique to get your audience to unwittingly start agreeing with your small proposal claims until they go through the habit of saying “yes”, and leads to the big Yes

    Class Notes-10/7/2021

    URL sources shouldn’t be three or five sentences long and must be shortened with bit.ly, 3.ly, and tinyurl.com. It’ll make all long URL website links have on the clipboard shortened versions. Mechanics and protocol of the blog for having a discussion with your professors on writing helping with thesis, sentences, and ideas for the paper. Engage with your professor in a healthy manner, argument, or clarification of the paper’s incoherent sentences. The writing center helps out students that aren’t well versed in writing and can get support from teacher-students as people make appointments within summer and fall semesters. Research tips for sources requiring Google Scholar and Rowan library to gather evidence to help reinforce the thesis better. Sources depend on the value and credibility of the topic itself. Google Scholar gets you credible articles without the junk and ads that surround news articles and such. But Google Scholar requires payment to print out the source unless you have Rowan library that can automatically get the article source for free. The topic researched should not be named in your thesis. Bobblehead strategy is also called a purposeful summary that gets the reader’s attraction to your essay with reason and persuasive writing. Get the audience to agree to small parts of your essay.

    During class we discussed shortening urls using bit.ly, 3.ly or tinyurl.com to declutter your white paper from the paragraph long urls you may end up upon. Next we discussed feedback and responding to it so we can engage in healthy conversations with our beloved professor. Then we discussed utilizing the resources the university provides us, like the writing center and how we can go there to get help with all our writing needs. Our discussion continued with research tips and how if we could not find good academic sources for our hypothesis we should shift our focus to a new revised hypothesis thats encompasses our old one. We then discussed good citation tactics while reviewing our good citation mini assignment. Finally, in class we discussed the bobblehead strategy with getting your audience to agree with smaller yeses that build and lead into your big question you are trying to persuade them on.

    -Remember to include a URL link for each source on the references page but to make sure that there aren’t any long links, you can name it and put it behind the name
    -You can also put the link in bit.ly.com, 3.ly.com, or tinyurl.com and shorten it
    -Remember to keep responding to the comments from the professor on the blog
    -You can start revising as soon as you would like and then drop it back into “feedback please” and leave a reply about it
    -There are student tutors who are available to read your work and give feedback-to find their schedules, go to the Writing Center link on the blog
    Research Tips
    -If you are struggling with finding new sources on your topic, try talking to someone about your topic, situations that are similar, and how they are related-you will discover new language that you can use to find new information
    -Google Scholar is a great source to find articles that are actually qualified and helpful
    -Since sources aren’t always free on Google Scholar, you can search the title in the Rowan University library database and get it for free! 🙂
    Citations
    -It is not necessary to capitalize the direct quote in a sentence if it comes after the word “that”- “he said that, ‘boys…’”
    -However, without the word “that”, the quote should be capitalized, even if it wasn’t in the source- “he stated, ‘Boys…’”
    Bobblehead Strategy
    -In order to get an answer that you want, start with questions you know will have “yes” answers
    -Little yesses could result in an overall positive reaction
    -Same with writing, you want readers to unwittingly agree nod in agreement to premises
    -Even if you are stating something outrageous, little reasonable statements will lead the reader to agree with you
    -Make suggestions that you know will be agreed with and ease the readers onto your side-it will be so much more effective than dropping a bomb on the audience

  12. Today in class, we learned how to shorten a URL using bit.ly or tinyurl.com in order to clean up the look of our references lists. We then looked at an example of a conversation in the feedback section of white papers. It is important to not only reply to comments made, but initiate a conversation or question. We also learned that the writing center is a resource we can use throughout the semester to get help. Having a conversation with someone, using Google Scholar, and Rowan’s Campbell Library can also be used to find good sources. Lastly we discussed the bobblehead strategy which shows us that in order to get the answer you want you have to ask questions that will get you the answer “yes”.

    Today we did some more housekeeping and got some valuable tips and tricks. I will definitely be using the URL shorter websites in this class and in others. It’s necessary to respond to all feedback because the back and forth conversations allow more thoughts to flow. More practicing when writing, even if it’s little things, is always beneficial. A great option to aid writing in this class is to use the peer-review privilege from the Rowan Writing Center.
    The story with Username about negative or positive celebrity endorsements was very counterintuitive. I’m so used to being able to find thousands of articles with just one search, but it never occurred to me that there could be a situation where no one has written about your topic yet. I’m glad there are a lot of scholarly articles to base my research off of, but it would be cool to be the first person to think of something like Username did. Nevertheless, it just goes to show how valuable a five minute conversation can be and how tweaking your searches for sources can make all the difference.
    For any citation mechanics there are rules and examples in this agenda which might be helpful to go back to later, like when writing my white paper. The punctuation and capitalization can be tricky at times so I’m glad we went over it.
    The bobblehead strategy means instead of asking one big question like “can I have a car?” It’s best to lead up to it with little questions to get the audience (Dad) to start agreeing with you. If he keeps nodding, it’s more likely he will say yes when the big question is finally asked. This is very true when writing, too, because it’s necessary to keep your reader in mind and try to get them to keep nodding.

    In class today we started off by talking about URL links and how to shorten lengthy URL’s by using websites like bit.ly, 3.ly, tiny.url to shorten lengthy links
    – Showed how to link something directly into our writing post with the link attachment button

    Feedback
    – Remember to keep up with Professors responses on the blog
    – Professor Dave enjoys giving feedback as long as the student is engaged
    – Conversations about feedback should be happening
    – There is tutoring and peer to peer review at our writing center
    – It is free because it is covered by tuition
    – They book up more and more as the semester goes on and especially during finals week

    Research Tips
    When you just keep following link after link and see where it leads you, you might feel like you’ve run into a wall because you’re searching for a specific kind of information that you are unable to find
    – Try conversation with someone else for a fresh set of eyes and ears

    Negative and/or Positive Effects of Celebrity Endorsements
    The way celebrities promote things genuinely effects the general public
    – Oprah Winfrey stamped her book and put value on her book that really wasn’t there but because she said it was worth reading, people read it
    – Her ability to endorse the book the way she did made millions of copies sell
    – No one ever bought Buicks until Tiger Woods was seen driving one
    – People then starting looking at Buicks when they never even thought twice about it before Tiger Woods
    – Then when Tiger Woods was on the outs for multiple bad situations that were not supported by many, Buick sales went back down
    – All of this just proves how the power of the famous naturally inclines their followers to do whatever they say to

    Google Scholar and Rowan’s Library
    – Google Scholar guides you to find articles or journals that are qualified and genuinely helpful
    – The links on Google Scholar aren’t always free so you just search the title you want to use on Rowan’s library database and get it for free as long as its there
    – They have a plethora of useful links
    – Useful search engines are the direct Library Database, Google Scholar, or Wikipedia articles that yield rich lists of sources you can retrieve by title
    – Use wikipedia not for their actual writings but rather for the outside sources listed that gave them their information

    Bobble Head Strategy
    – In order to get the reaction you want out of people, use questions that you know will have a “yes” answer
    – You want to get your reader to nod with you, meaning they agree with your claims or arguments
    – Readers will either subconsciously nod with you and in some cases they will physically nod while reading
    – Being able to do this as an author brings people back to your writings because they feel you have the same views as them
    – Ease readers into understanding the point of view your coming from rather than dropping things on them
    – “The trick to the Bobblehead Strategy is to get your audience to unwittingly start nodding in agreement to a series of small and innocuous-sounding premises until the habit of agreeing to your every premise leads to the big Yes.”
    – Once you have the upper hand on majority of the audience, bring out the logical analogies that they might have recognized as setups if you had introduced them too early
    – “Those arguments/analogies, saved for last, can nail down a strong Conclusion with fresh material designed to keep our new converts from rescinding their approval for our fresh proposal.”

    We learned how to shrink URL’s to a more manageable size.
    Your hypothesis should be honed and made more precise through conversation with others who read it in a continuous process of improvement.
    If you are having trouble finding sources for your research, look beyond the specific issue to broader relevant concepts.
    Google Scholar and Rowan’s library are good sources for relevant articles and information.
    Good citations should identify who the author is, what they said (either through direct quotation or paraphrasing), in what article they said it, and that they said it.
    Using a series of small, generally agreed-upon arguments is an effective way to lead readers to accept or consider controversial larger arguments.

    URL Shortening: Use bit.ly/3.ly/tiny.url.com to shorten URL. Use this in your white paper to make it condense and visually neat.
    Feedback: It’s good to utilize the ability to engage with your teacher, whether it’s on minor assignments or for the White Paper. There’s nothing but positives that come out of utilizing this opportunity.
    Writing Center: If you need any assistance, there are availabilities at the writing center for peer review. They do get very busy deeper into the semester, make sure to set an appointment with enough spare time.
    Research Tips: There’s no such thing as an insurmountable obstacle in this process, just keep moving forward. Rather than searching directly for evidence, look at themes surrounding your thesis to make viable connections. Use google scholar to find academic sources at an efficient rate. The use of ” ” in the search bar will search sources that use that exact wording. There are numerous databases that rowan has full access to, take advantage of these.
    Bobble head strategy: Rather than making a big claim off the bat. It’s better to go step by step with smaller, more agreeable claims one at a time. Avoid mob mentality by breaking a big proposition into smaller yesses to soften the final blow. Make the audience agree on sound principles that correlate to the final proposition. “Common goals.” Bobble head strategy to get numerous consecutive yesses in a row, to then get ,at minimum, some temporary approval.

    Links
    -Include URLs for each source
    -For websites with lengthy URLs, link-shortening sites (bit.ly, 3.ly, tinyurl.com) can be useful
    -Another option for long URLs is to attach the link to the name/heading of your page
    -Eliminating these long URLs will not only visually enhance your reference list, but also create a cleaner and easier to navigate page

    Engaging in Feedback
    -It is important to actively engage in feedback conversations
    -Feedback conversations are an essential part of the revision process and will only result in a stronger version of your work

    Research Tips
    -The Writing Center is a valuable resource for general advice and peer review feedback
    -There is never going to be a real obstacle in your research
    -You will always have an endless rabbit hole of links to follow
    -Sometimes all you need is a fresh pair of eyes or a conversation with someone to get a new perspective
    -Looking for sources that you can connect to your thesis, rather than a source that makes the same exact claims as you, can be the strongest resources
    -Some of the best sources may have nothing to directly do with your thesis! You can make a connection!
    -Check Rowan’s Campbell Library for academic sources
    -Do not think about your topic. Talk about it.

    Good Citations
    -Refer to “Good Citation Mechanics” for examples of how to include the necessary information for your citations

    The Bobblehead Strategy
    -Get your audience to unwillingly begin to agree with you, despite how outrageous your claims may be
    -Rather than having the audience begin in complete agreement with your claim, breaking down your claim into smaller pieces will allow you to slowly and steadily convince your audience of these “mini” claims
    -Ask a bunch of rational questions that will lead the reader to your final conclusion
    -LEAD the reader to your narrow claim by beginning with convincing the reader of your smaller and less objectionable claims
    -Seek incremental approval

    Instead of using longer url to link souces, url shortening websites can be used to avoid the link taking up an unnecessarily large amount of space. One of the most important ways to be interactive in the class is by responding to feedback on our writing. The writing center is a source that we can use to book meetings to help us with our writing by give us feedback on our work. When looking for sources, using the wrong search may lead to no reliable sources that are useable. By using different wording and different keywords you can better find sources that can better your work even if the article may not have been what you were originally looking for. The Cambell library can be used to get in through the paywalls that many articles may have and for searching the database for articles relevant to your searches. The bobblehead strategy is a good way to prep your reader to agree with your arguments by starting with many simple propositions that lead to larger and more divisive questions. As they have already started to agree with your simple propositions, it is more likely that the reader will hear out and agree with the larger statements that will be made later in the paper. If certain later stage statements are made too early, the reader my reject them too quickly as they have not been lead to see the arguments you are making.

    – try and use tiny URL or link a URL to a word or title, just to make it look nicer than taking up three lines on a document. bit.ly or 3.ly or tinyurl.com (bit.ly requires a free account)
    – If you are every stuck with wording or need to bounce ideas for your paper, comment about it and ask David for help, as well as others (friends) or the writing center. Get to know a writing center tutor, it’ll be easier on both of you if meet sooner rather than later
    – If your sources are starting to run dry, they ask why you’re looking for what you’re looking for? “Google Scholar” might help as well, but talk to David to get the ball rolling again. you may have to think outside of the box in order to move forward. if a source needs you to pay, go through the library, they will most likely have it
    – Talk about you topic, don’t think just talk about it with someone and listen
    – Examples of how to site while writing is discussed, mainly how to structure them, we also look at flawed structures
    – Bobblehead Strategy; Get someone to keep agreeing with you on sound principals, they will want to know where you are going with these questions.

    Research tips
    The appearance of the celebrity reflects on the value and credibility of the message. Personalities involved in expressing an opinion affect our opinions.
    Negative celebrity endorsement
    A celebrity can have a positive endorsement effect or negative endorsement effect
    No authoritative source that directs itself directly to the thesis
    Sources not needed to completely agree with thesis
    Succeeding is coming up with the thesis no one has agreed with or published before
    Failure is finding someone else that agrees
    Scholar.google.com – eliminates commercial results from a search
    Further limit results of search by putting search phrases into quotation marks
    The effects of negative information transference in the celebrity endorsement relationship.
    Talk about your topic
    Listen carefully for researchable topics not immediately named in your thesis
    Use whatever search engine works best for you
    Library database directly
    Google scholar
    Wikipedia articles that yield rich lists of sources you can then retrieve by title
    If you run into a wall, enter the titles in the Campbell Library database
    Read about the value of celebrity endorsement
    Learn about our tendency to dissociate ourselves from unsavory characters and their products and their social views
    Apply that evidence from outside your primary topic to your very specific thesis
    Writing mechanics –
    Requirements in citations that you identify source material in some way
    Daniel Flath, in his essay, “Boylan’s Folly,” claims that “boys can’t learn from women.”

    What We Did In Class
    To improve our neatness, we can use bit.ly, 3.ly, or any other url-shortening site to condense it
    The sources used in an essay can depend on how certain people perceive the message
    Google scholar is a reliable site to find sources
    Celebrities can either have a negative or positive effect when endorsing a product/message
    Campbell Library Database
    Once the authors full name has been used, you only need to use their last name
    Attempt to narrow the amount of people who disagree with your ideas
