Blog Commenting

Commenting on other blogs is a skill easily attained by following a few simple practices:

  • Be nice to each other. Don’t be mean to other commenters, bloggers have feelings. We’re putting ourselves out there for the world to read our thoughts.
  • Connect to the post.  Have a point when you comment on someone’s blog.  Don’t ramble.
  • Read the whole post before you comment. Don’t just comment on the comments.  This will help you write a thorough and thoughtful comment.
  • Use sentences and short paragraphs.  Write in an active voice.  Always try to be grammatically correct.

Here are a few comment starters that can help raise questions and provide useful feedback for bloggers.
