Tow 2: Commenting

June 11, 2010

 Why should you comment on blogs?

Why are comments such an integral part of blogs? What advice would you offer on writing effective blog comments?

Comments are integral because it truly allows a blogger to interact with his/her readers. Unlike newspapers & Tv where you don’t get the one on one feedback a comment can inform a blogger of things that can help strengthen their blog, what their weaknesses are, can help provide supporting evidence, or can throw a stick in the mud to a bloggers theory.

If I were to offer any advice for commenting on blogs it would be that when a person is commenting remember that you are your own person, you may or may not think the same way the blogger does.  If you have differences don’t be rude. Present what you have to say in a way that can be communicated clearly and can offer a window for conversation. Offer supportive comments, but also challenge the blogger to think outside their own box. Ride the pros and the cons.
