How to Comment

Our blogs are learning blogs, not social blogs, therefore our comments will be “academic comments”.


  • Acknowledge the author of the blog post (start with Dear….. and finish with Regards or From)
  • Make sure you have checked spelling, grammar and re-read your post to make sure it makes sense.
  • One word comments are not very useful. Writing just “cool” or “nice” are not very helpful and don’t let the author of the blog post really know what you are thinking.
  • Always make sure you follow “netiquette”. Think if it is appropriate BEFORE you hit the submit button.
  • Always be polite . It does not matter if you agree or disagree with what you are reading in a blog. Don’t write anything you would be ashamed of saying to someone’s face. Don’t hurt somebody’s feelings.

A good comment should:

  • Be related or connected to the content of the post (keep on the topic!).
  • Continuing a conversation started in the post or in other comments.
  • Agree or challenges someone’s point of view AND give reasons.
  • Add something to the author’s post in form of a :
    • question
    • connection
    • idea
    • reminder
    • new perspective



Here are some examples of social comments.

    The concert was cool and awesome, the song I liked is let’s go fly a kite. I enjoyed all the people holding their kite and waving their kite around.
