Usage

This template exactly like Template:CiteDevBlog, with two exceptions. First, it is not a reference template in the sense that it does not create footnote-styled references. Instead, it creates the same text that {{CiteDevBlog}} would as a non-reference. This is desirable if a certain Dev. Blog is the source of the majority of an article, as having the same reference at the end of every sentence. Second, it does not have the "name" parameter, as this only applies to footnote-style references.
