the practice of citing blogs: is it good scholarly practice?

I'm not sure what the fuss is about, a search on my blog being cited turns up plenty of results.  I see no problem in using blog posts or blogs as a resource when reporting a literature review or making use of a citation.  It's done quite frequently, actually.  From memory I recall Ian Bogost doing it quite abit in Alien Phenomenology (despite the book itself not being well argued or containing much in the way of argument, he did in fact cite quite a few online resources).

Anyway, see HERE and HERE for example where my blog has been cited in the literature either as a useful resource or by making use of a specific post itself.
