How to cite a blog post

While conducting research for a project, I found some useful information in a blog article. I’m not sure how to properly credit it in my bibliography, though. Could someone please advise me on how to properly cite a blog post? I’m specifically searching for any extra formatting guidelines I should adhere to in addition to the required components, which include the author, title, date, and URL. I would be very grateful for any assistance!

When citing a blog post, include the author’s name, title of the post, publication date, URL, and if available, the date accessed. Format: Author or Screen Name. “Title of Blog Post.” Name of Blog, Blog Network/Publisher if given, date of post, URL. Accessed day month year.

To cite a blog post in APA Style, follow this format:

Author’s Last Name, First Initial. (Year, Month Day). Title of the blog post. Blog Name. URL

For example:

Smith, J. (2023, June 22). I have learned a lot by reading the Psych blog. Psych Blog. https://www.psychblog.com/1234

In-text citation:
(Smith, 2023)
