General rules

In APA Style, a reference to a blog post is different from a reference to a webpage. In contrast, a blog post is treated as an article in a periodical by the APA Style Manual, hence a blog post should be referenced similarly to a journal article, with the blog title given in place of the journal title.

How to cite in a bibliography

To cite a blog post in APA Style (7th ed.), use the following template:

Author(s). (Date). Blog post title. Blog Title. URL
