To begin, let me emphasize that I really don’t care what format someone uses. Any good faith effort to adequately cite source material from this site, whether it be APA, MLA or the Chicago Manual of Style, is much appreciated and okay with me. However, since I have been asked the question, I thought I would offer my own thoughts and preferences.
Here are the three major citation styles and what they recommend for citing blog posts:
MLA: Lastname, Firstname. “Title of the Blog Post Entry.” Blog Title. Publisher. Date posted. Web. Date accessed.
APA: Lastname, Firstinitial. (Year, Month Date). Title of the Blog Post Entry. [Web Log Post]. Retrieved from URL
Chicago Manual of Style: Firstname Lastname, “Title of the Blog Post Entry,” Blog Title (blog), Publisher, Date posted, URL.
