10 Things you should know about Blog Comments

blog comments

The third challenge in the Advanced Student Blogging Activity looked at comments on blogs. Here are 1o Things you should know about comments. (They are not in any particular order.)
  1. They are highly motivational
  2. Comments can create conversations and therefore learning
  3. They are a vital point of contact or connection: as blogging provides a global presence, people who wish to learn more about you, connect with you or just communicate can easily do so via comments
  4. Care needs to be taken with comments – use proper English, be positive, use appropriate language. Remember that some readers may need to use a translator.
  5. Always reply to someone who comments on your blog post, read what they are blogging about and ask a question where possible to keep the conversation going
  6. Actively encourage comments by asking a question(s) in your blog post
  7. Ensure you moderate comments to keep spammers and unwanted bodies at bay.
  8. Allow at least 10 mins per week to comment on others’ blog posts
  9. Whenever you read a blog post, please consider commenting to let the blogger know that you have visited – even if it is just to say “Thanks for posting”
  10. You can be updated on further comments added to a particular blog post,  by subscribing to the comment feed.
