The newest APA style manual says blog posts should be cited the same as journal articles, and the name of the blog should be put in italics:

Here is an example citing a post from the APA's Style Blog:

Lee, C. (2021, March 8). “I found it online”: Citing online works in APA Style. APA Style       Blog. 


MLA's 8th edition emphasizes the MLA template of core elements more than having samples of all types of references. Using the general MLA concepts for citing electronic sources & websites, the Purdue OWL gives guidance for citing a listserv, discussion group, or blog posting near the bottom of this webpage: guide/mla_works_cited_electronic_sources.html

Here is an example of a blog entry following that guidance:

Ramsey, Franchesca. “MTV Decoded: 3 Hollywood Myths About Policing.” Franchesca Ramsey Blog, 4 Aug. 2020, Accessed 16 March 2021.
