Q. How do I cite a blog post in APA?
Reference List Entry
The "References" entry follows the following format:
Author, F. M. (Year, Month Day). Title of blog in sentence structure: Only proper nouns are capitalized [Blog Post]. Retrieved from [URL]
This follows a website citation well, the only difference being [Blog Post] being added to the end of the blog post title.
The in-text citation for a blog post will follow the normal rules of citing the author. For further information on these rules please see the In-Text Citation Basics and Author(s) pages of the Purdue OWL.
