An elaborated article would begin with a brief introduction to Chicago style, followed by an explanation of how to cite a blog in Chicago style. A conclusion would summarize the main points made in this article.
When citing a blog in Chicago style, the author’s name and the website address should appear in parentheses following the title of the post. The date of publication should also be included, usually following the parentheses.
For example: (Smith 2008).
To cite a blog post as an academic source, you would use the same format but add “in-text citations” after the name and address of the blog post. For example: (Smith 2008) in-text citations.
