Hi Everybody. I am totally new to this game- I have been wanting to do a website for a long time, and now I finally have. My site is a "blog" about environmental issues. The uniqueness of my blog is that I won't accept any fear mongering from either side of environmental issues, and though I do post my own opinions, I also publish other people's articles that disagree with my op-eds. It's a forum with decorum, ha ha.
Anyway, I spend every day reading hundreds of RSS feeds from environmental blogs and news, and write almost all my content myself. I read all the info to keep my site up-to-date, relevant, and to try not to have my daily feature article be the same as every other blog.
Inevitably, I get content ideas from other articles that I read. I never copy any of their writing, but I am concerned about idea plagiarizing. Should I be referencing every site that gives me ideas? I always reference main news sites, but usually don't reference other blogs on the same topic. Help anyone?
