MLA Beats Down Bluebook

I met with someone at Career Services yesterday. Regarding my resume, the meeting was extremely productive. I had no idea how to put experience writing a blog or a book on a resume, and they helped me get it straight. Also, according to the Bluebook, apparently newspaper names are underlined. Whoda thunk it? I'm going to continue using (approximate) MLA style for this blog, because it's flexible enough to change to fit the pace and tone of what I want to write. The Bluebook is rigid, and while I see how it is useful, it's not gonna work for this blog. Bluebook, I'm sorry. (Not really though.)

Bluebook R. 16.5(a)- Newspaper names are in Large and Small Caps. The names of the articles are italicized in law review articles, but underlined in court documents and memos.

Don't try to get on a law journal next year if you value your MLA style.
