I am using the Mendeley Desktop program found here. You must download and create an account to use this citation system. I found it very simple to use and set up. This citation machine has a link that you can add to your favourites to make it easy to cite websites and articles as you are reading them. I found that Mendeley is mainly for PDF’s or documents that you have saved onto your computer, as that is what it first prompts you to attach when you open the program. Once you add an article or website you have the choice to edit and add information in a simple click. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a fast way to cite PDF’s or webpages. Using Mendeley I have cited by blog’s homepage:
