Commenting on blog posts

Remember, we will only approve good quality comments to the blog. Follow these steps when posting a comment.

  • One: Say something positive “I really like how you have tried to use some powerful verbs in your writing. It helps bring it to life.”
  • Two: Ask a question By asking a question, you are encouraging a reply and you are engaging the author. “Your writing makes me think that you may have read some Michael Morpurgo books. Which story inspired you to write this?
  • Three: Suggest an improvement “To make this even better, you could change the way you opened the final sentence. Can you think of an adverb that would work? Leave a comment with some ideas.”

    I think comment 5 is the best. My reasons are because: they say something good, something they could improve on and they have asked the person a question.
