What I learned - Sean Doty
When you're writing an article or column, statistics can be just as important, if not more important than quotes themselves. When I was writing my article about CLEP exams, I found difficulty in trying to put good quotes within my article, primarily because it sounded too much like an advertisement instead of an informative article. But with the statistics that I was able to uncover online towards the end of the deadline, I was able to help boost my story on the informative side. The old cliché is that "Numbers Never Lie." That may not always be true, but they certainly can be a major boost.
