Tips for Commenting

What makes a great blog comment? Commenting is an important part of blogging but there are certain guidelines or rules you should follow.

In the spring of 2012 during Week 3: Visit these of our Edublogs Student Blogging challenge our class researched what makes a great blog comment. We looked at quite a few blogs and found great resources, including Mrs. Yollis’ class video, and a poster on how to make comments of Glogster. Also, here’s a post by Grammar Girl about How to Write a Great Blog Comment. Also check out this post from Stanley Year 4’s class blog.

After all our research we felt inspired and so we wrote our own script for a video called Ten Tips for Great Blog Comments.

  2. I bet all of you really learned how to comment by creating a video to teach other people. My two favorite tips were “Be Positive” and “Connect with the Post”. When I receive a comment, I want to feel good and know that the reader actually took the time going over what I wrote. Did all of you learn all of the tips or just the one you were featured in?

  3. Hello everyone in Mrs. McKelvey’s class,
    Wow, what a great video all of you made! I enjoyed watching it AND learning from it. I noticed that some of you were wearing clothing from your family’s culture for the Multi Cultural Fair at school. Hope you had fun at the fair. Did you enjoy making this video?
