MLA format help - January 15th 2011, 05:41 AM

Hello,

I need help on formatting my persuasive essay using MLA. If I put a fact or talk about something I got off online, how do I cite it? I'm not talking about the works cited page, but like after a fact, you go like ( ). I'm talking about internet sources too, not books

If anyone can help me, then thank you!

Oh gosh, I haven't used MLA since high school. (Which ended only seven months ago, but still.)

This should be useful for you:

APA is much simpler. xD

EURGH, MLA format. I've used it for four years and I hate it. The link Nikki (Nicole?) gave you should be helpful.

And yes, I agree, APA is much easier.

Black, white, gay, straight, bisexual. Whether you are smart or quiet or impossibly in love with your best friend, someone out there cherishes your smile and gets butterflies when you walk into a room.

Someone out there can't stop thinking about you. You Are Beautiful. Don't ever believe differently."

If you ever want someone to talk to, about absolutely anything, feel free to inbox me!

I've always liked http://citationmachine.net/

Just click on MLA, choose your source, type in the info, and copy paste it to your paper.
