How to Comment on a Blog

Blogging is about reading, writing, thinking, and responding.

Receiving a comment on your blog is exciting – like finding a card in your mailbox amongst all the bills. There are some important things to consider when commenting on blogs and replying to comments left on a blog. Here are some of the guidelines that our students have developed based on their research and experience giving and receiving comments:

Guidelines

  • Make your comment worth reading
  • Be positive, interested, and encouraging. Start with a compliment or an appreciation statement
  • Start a conversation = ask a question
  • Write the comment like a letter (greeting, body, closing, signature)
  • Connect with the post: stay on topic
  • If you disagree, be polite about it
  • Aim for correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar
  • Don’t use chat or texting language like lol, i, or u
  • No “Hi! Visit my blog! Bye!” comments. Be thoughtful
  • Include your blog url so people can comment back, and use our email address
  • Keep your privacy: no personal or identifying information about you, your family, or your friends. Don’t give out last names, school name, phone numbers, user names, or places and dates where you can be found
  • Re-read your comment before you hit submit–think before you send!
