Example In-Stall History Post / Citation Guide

Your blog post should be no more than 750 words and incorporate ample media–still or video. For citations, you should highlight the relevant text for sources that are available on the web. For primary or secondary sources not available on the web, you must use Chicago Manual of Style citations. Good citation guides are available from the Chicago Manual of Style guide or Purdue University’s Online Writing Lab. These sources must also include an in-line end-note.

End notes do not factor in your final word count. I will give you several examples of Chicago-style end notes that you might use. For archival sources that you embed as images in your post, you should refer to the figure number in your caption. (Figure 1) For archival sources that you use but do not include as an image or hyperlink-able source, you need to include all the pertinent information necessary for someone else to find your source in the end note. [1] You may have a variety of secondary sources including analog newspapers or magazines [2], online news stories [3], journal articles [4], or books [5]. Chicago allows for the use of “ibid” if your cited source is the exact same as the previous source, in this case, our Introduction to Public History text. [6]

The rest of the words in this blog post are filler text derived from hipster ipsum. They are included to demonstrate to you exactly how long a 750 word post length is, as well as demonstrate some design choices you may make with your various media. All images included here are of my cats, Odo and Tiny Grey Kitten. They were taken without permission and without consent, and are not subject to copyright. The world deserves more Odo and Tiny.

Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see the end notes.

Odo sat in this exact spot for the entirety of my first book. It was…not helpful.

And don’t forget that you can insert a gallery of all your images.

You can also play with the headings designations to develop sections within your post. For the gallery, keep in mind that you may not want extensive captions in this case. You can choose how many columns you want. I opted for five since I had five pictures.

I bet you’re still using Bootstrap too…
