The purpose of the author that made the online information on the Titanic is that they want to help people that need to do like reports or essays on that topic or they want to let people have freedom and search about what they want to read about. Also some authors like to influence people to write of post there own ideas so they post stuff about different topics so they can give other people ideas. Also authors want people to know about history like an example the topic I'm reading about is The Titanic and it gives many information on how long was the ship and how tall it was and many, many other amazing details. Also it says when it set sail and when it sank. My perspective is that authors want bright futures for kids that are just learning about life so they can pursue their dreams.
