As per "How to Cite a Blog Post in APA Style" (McAdoo, 2016), the correct formatting for a reference to a blog post is as follows:

Author, A. (year, Month day). Title of posting [Blog post]. Retrieved from URL

In-text citation: (Author, year, para. X)

Please see the reference below for a sample reference to a blog post. See "How do I cite a blog post comment in APA Style?" if you are quoting or paraphrasing a blog post comment.
