Collation Posts

These are a combination of link and research posts. With a collation post, you pick your topic and then research what others have said about it to reach your own opinion or conclusion. You then pull together the various quotes and ideas on the topic, linking back to your sources and tying them together to reach your own conclusion. Another version of the collation post is when you summarize comments you've received on a previous post in your blog, linking together different ideas and adding additional commentary.
