Blog Commenting

Commenting on other blogs is a skill easily attained by following a few simple practices.  Take time to talk about these practices with your students and refer to them as you review blog comments together as a class.

Be nice to each other.   Don’t be mean to other commenters.  Even 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.

White space is your friend.  It’s hard enough to read from a computer screen.  Use short sentences, and short paragraphs.  Write in an active voice.  At least try to be grammatically correct.

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

  • This made me think about…….
  • I wonder why…….
  • Your writing made me form an opinion about…….
  • This post is relevant because…….
  • Your writing made me think that we should…….
  • I wish I understood why…….
  • This is important because…….
  • Another thing to consider is…….
  • I was reminded that…….
  • I can relate to this…….
  • This makes me think of…….
  • I discovered……
  • I don’t understand…….
  • I found myself wondering…….

  1. Hello Mr. D’s Class!
    We are excited to be blogging with you this year. Five of our students have been to Colorado and two of us have lived there. They were too young, so they do not remember where they lived. We agree that bloggers have feelings, too. We will use good netiquette when commenting on your blog posts. Your blogs are well-organized and we noticed how hard you worked on them. We liked how you wrote about yourself and drew a self-portrait. We will visit again tomorrow and leave comments on your autobiographies.

    Your blogging buddies,
    Mrs. Haboush’s class
