How to write GOOD comments

When people take the time to write a post, it’s fantastic if you can find the time to write a comment to let them know what you thought. When you write comments, try to keep these things in mind:

1. Be positive! Remember to tell the person who posted, what you liked about the post.

2. If you have any criticism, then write it down, but be positive. Use the ‘even better if’ style of feedback.

3. Just saying ‘cool’ might make the poster feel good, but even better would be saying why it’s cool. Comments can be read by anyone from all over the world – teachers, parents, governors, politicians, celebrities (!), so use your best writing skills and try to be as accurate as possible with spellings.

4. If you want to tell the poster about one of your posts, then give them the full web address to help them find it – if you’re really advanced, then include a link.

5. Perhaps try one of these comment starters… I can relate to this… This makes me think of… I discovered… I don’t understand… I was reminded that… I found myself wondering…

If we keep these guidelines in mind, our site will be a really fun place to share our work.
