Blog Entries (Sec. 14.208)

General Format
  • Blogs are cited like online newspaper aticles.
  • The word blog in parentheses is only needed if the word "blog" is NOT part of the blog title. Like newspaper articles, citations of blog posts are not necessary in a bibliography; including them in the notes is sufficient. 
  • Blogs that are part of a larger publication should also include the name of that publication.
