You will basically use the format for citing a non-periodical webpage, with the following exceptions:

  • The title of the blog isn't italicized.

  • Include the format type in brackets.

    • Written blog: [Web log comment].

    • Video blog: [Video file]

  • If the author's real name (only his/her screen name) is available, use the screen name.

  • If no author name is available, start the citation with the blog title.

Author, A. A., & Author, B. B. (Date of publication). Title of document. [Web log comment]. Retrieved from http://Web address
