I’m a stickler for MLA documentation, because it provides a uniform way to present research and information. Across this blog and on my main web page, I model MLA format whenever possible.
You can read more about MLA documentation at the Purdue OWL.
However, when it comes to quoting from a text, I deviate from standard MLA formatting. The standard rule is that any quotation that is four or lines longer must be set in a separate paragraph with indented margins. Because a blog is also about presentation, I sometimes will set aside quotations that are less than four lines if they are especially important to the point that I am making.
When I do that, it will look like this.
