Quality Commenting

Quality Commenting (Thanks Miss Panther and Room 11)

Tip #1: Start with a greeting 
Remember to address the blogger by name.
Tip #2: Compliment in a Specific Way 
A compliment is a great way to begin a comment. Remember to comment

about something specific. Rather than writing ‘I really liked your post,’ 
you could write ‘I really liked your vivid description of the theme park, 
it made me feel like I was there.’
Tip #3: Add New Facts 
If you know something about the topic, you can add more factual information 

in your comment.
Tip #4: Make a Connection 
What does the post remind you of? Try to make a connection to yourself, to 

the world or to another text. For example, you could write ‘your post reminded 
me of when I went to Waterbom two years ago.’
Tip #5: End with a Question 
Try to start a conversation. Ask the blogger a relevant question and hopefully

they will reply.
Tip # 6: Proofread Your Comment 
When you blog, many people may be reading your posts and comments, so it is very 

important to proofread.
