Commenting on a Post

A check list for writing GREAT blog comments:

  • Include the use of correct capitalization, spelling and punctuation in well written sentences
  • Use high level vocabulary to make your comment interesting
  • Use a greeting and closing in your comment
  • Try to include specific details relating to the post you are commenting on
  • Don’t repeat yourself
  • Add information to your comment to develop the post even further
  • Give a compliment to the writer. This will encourage them to write more.
  • Ask a question of the writer. This will then develop a good conversation.

Here are a couple of ideas to get you started:

one-point comment is a general comment that doesn’t add very much to the post.

Example: I like your blog. 

two-point comment adds something to the comment conversation. A commenter might compliment the writer in a specific way or add new information. Another idea is to make a connection. Maybe the post reminds you of an experience that you’ve had. Share that connection!  Try to end your comment with a relevant question. That way, an interesting conversation can develop.
