Dear Speaker,

Dear Speaker,

While I’m honored you read my blog, and think highly of what I publish, I would really appreciate if you would reference me or cite me in your presentations.

It’s a professional courtesy to cite others, especially if they’ve worked hard to get the knowledge that they have. Also, it adds to your credibility, as third party sources can validate your point. Since we’re in a very open community, people talk, and people will find out anyways if you use someone’s work without their permission.

I certainly encourage you to use this information I share to grow, be better, and to improve web strategies, I certainly would appreciate if you would reference me going forward.

Professionally and Appreciatively,
