How to quote this blog

I recently received a question from someone who wanted to know how to quote me, and it all depends on the style guide you’re using. Getting your citations right can be rather complicated at times, but here’s a handy list, showing how to quote a blog post according to the four major style guides out there.

MLA

Sandberg McGuinne, Johan. “How to quote this blog.” Web blog post. Indigeneity, Language and Authenticity. WordPress, 24 November 2014. Web, [insert the date when you read the blog post here].

Some publishers require you to add the url as well, and universities tend to be extra picky, so you could add it after the date of access in angle brackets as follows, but strictly speaking this is not needed;

Sandberg McGuinne, Johan. “How to Quote this Blog.” Web blog post. Indigeneity, Language and Authenticity. WordPress, 24 November 2014. Web, 24 November 2014. < url goes here >

If your using APA, this should be enough:

Sandberg McGuinne, J. (24 November 2014). How to quote this blog. [Blog post]. Retrieved from https://johansandbergmcguinne.wordpress.com/how-to-quote-this-blog/

Chicago does the same thing as follows:

Sandberg McGuinne, Johan. “How to quote this blog,” Indigeneity, Language and Authenticity (blog). Wordpress, 24 November 2014, https://johansandbergmcguinne.wordpress.com/how-to-quote-this-blog/

And finally, here’s Harvard:

Sandberg McGuinne, J. (2014). How to quote this blog. [Blog] Indigeneity, Language and Authenticity. Available at: [url goes here]  [Accessed 24 Nov. 2014].
