What makes a good blog comment?

We are learning to write blog comments that will help us with our thinking and our writing. There are lots of interesting blogs we can read and leave comments on from our school and The Manaiakalani Cluster. Commenting on blogs helps us to:
  • improve our reading and writing skills and become more confident to share our learning
  • learn more about writing for different purposes and audiences
  • connect and communicate positively with others
So what makes a good blog comment? 
  • We watched this video from Mrs Yollis' class blog for some useful tips.
  • We identified that a good blog comment is positive, thoughtful and helpful.
  • We explored some blogs that Mrs Grant had commented on and rated her comments.
  • We practised writing a good blog comment and leaving it on a blog from our school.

  8. Hi terrific website! Does running a blog similar to this require
    a massive amount work? I have very little expertise in coding but I had
    been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you have
    any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject however I simply had to ask.
    Cheers!

  9. What you posted was actually very reasonable.
    However, what about this? what if you composed
    a catchier post title? I am not suggesting your content isn't good, however suppose you added a post title to possibly grab a person's
    attention? I mean "What makes a good blog comment?" is kinda
    plain. You ought to look at Yahoo's front page and note how they create news headlines to get people to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about everything've got to say.
    In my opinion, it might make your blog a little livelier.

    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A small number of my blog readers have complained

    Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

  17. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    hints? Cheers!
