Social Work Tech (https://socialworktech.com) provides social work professionals with guidance on using technology tools in social work practice.
You will find examples of this type of citation in many of my articles.

For example: You can post a picture of the Self-Care Plan on your site, but you have to link it to the page for the Self-Care plan, but not the direct link for the PDF because I want people to read the article.

While my work is intended to be informative, based on scholarly and empirically-validated social work practice, should you wish to use any my work for your papers, here is a quick guide to cite in APA format.
Per the American Psychological Association: For a passing reference to this website in text, the URL is sufficient; no reference list entry is needed.
Ignacio Pacheco is a social work professional that uses technology tools like the iPad in social work practice (https://socialworktech.com/).
However, when you are citing a particular document or piece of information from a website, include both a reference list entry and an in-text citation. The key to creating the reference list entry is to determine the type of content on the web page. Basically, provide the following four pieces of information:
Pacheco, I. (20YY [the year that page or blog post was published]). Title of page or blog article [Web Page]. Retrieved from https://socialworktech.com/[link to blog article].
The in-text citation includes the author and date (Author, date), as with any other APA Style citation
