How to reference with APA

Blog post

In-text citation (paraphrase) 

(Hagon, 2009)
In-text citation (quotation)
(Hagon, 2009)
Reference List
Hagon, P. (2009, September 27). Immediate sharing [Web log post]. Retrieved from blog/2009/09/27/immediate-sharing/
Author Surname, First Initial. Second Initial. OR Author screen name {as it appears on
the blog}. (Year, Month Day {of post}). Title of specific post [Web log post]. Retrieved from URL of specific post

Citing new media

If you paraphrase or quote specific, retrievable information from social media, you will need to provide an in-text citation (with the author and date) and a reference list entry (with the author, date, title, and source URL). 

  • If no author is named on the item you are trying to reference, move the title to the start of the reference and follow that by the year of publication. Do not use Anon. or Anonymous unless the publication actually says that.
  • If the author’s name is not available, provide the screen name.
  • If it is the original blog post use [Web log post]; if it is a reply or comment made to the original post, use [Web log comment].
  • Do not italicise title of posts.
