Resource Reliability Paragraph
I am confident that these sources are reliable. To start, the authors of these websites have included information about themselves, containing facts such as their qualifications, credentials, and connection to the subject they have written about. They have also included multiple ways to contact them to answer any questions you may have. Second, there are no ads popping up or flashing different colors, disrupting you from the reading, proving that the website is professional.
