    For my blog, I am planning on writing a post on the benefits of napping. I found a few good articles online from WebMD, MSNBC, Psychology Today, and Harvard Med School that had really useful information, and I was planning on using them to write the post. If I do this, is it legal to use their information as long as a paraphrase and have proper citations? And if it is legal, how to a write the citations?
    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is powernapblog.wordpress.com.

    Copyright law applies in cyberspace just as it does in print media. The conventions are the same as those you use to write any academic paper and include quotations and cite authors in it.
