Blog citation when found in an intervening blog

As some of my posts have percolated through the blogosphere I've thought a bit about the evolution of citation styles as we utilize new technologies. I primarily work in APA style and have edited my Reference Manager program so I have a blog entry format that prints out similar to a magazine articles citation with the addition of retrieval information. Example:

If I than were citing as a secondary source, the jill/txt post final version of weblog definition mentioned by alan, I would use the following styles.

The intext citation would read "Jill Walker's definitions of weblogs (as cited by alan, 2003)". Of course this assumes that the writer hasn't reviewed the primary source. This is not a style I personally like to use but am forced to when links are dead or when the original is in a language other than English.

Finally the reference list would include the alan (2003) as in the above example.

Extrapolating from this then if I am citing a blog entry using the less formal style of naming and linking found in many blogs, I should first list the material I'm citing then mention the source through which it was found. Example, for reposts of the original post:

For material that has content from both sources I would use the following:

Makes sense to me to use a citation style similar to this for consistency. Besides if I am constantly reminding my undergraduate students that they must use proper citation style then I definitely need to model this behavior in my own work, formal and less-than-formal.
