Blog Commenting Improvements

Writing Blog Comments ... Before and After

This week in Writing, we have been learning how to write good blog comments.  Today we are looking at our progress.  Look below and you can see some before example and some after. Students in the Senior Hub have reflected on their learning and their progress by posting on their individual blogs.  Check them out by clicking on the names to the right of this page. 
We started with comments like these...

We now write comments like these...  


  1. Kia ora Rimu Class,
    My name is Tania and I live in Whangarei. I also work with teachers and learners just like you who are using chromebooks for learning. It is great that you are really focusing on positive, thoughtful and helpful comments. I bet you were amazed at the difference - you have certainly learnt lots since the start and have put your quality blog commenting skills to good use. I bet people really appreciate your comments. Nice work! Thanks for sharing your success on your class blog. A great challenge for you would be to create a video teaching someone else how to leave a positive, thoughtful and helpful comment.

  2. It is not what you do it is the way that you do it. Cheap blog comments, buying links from blog networks and automated spam comments doesn't work anymore, but making genuine comments in high quality blogs related to your site still works just fine. But to get the high quality links isn't as easy as you might think and it all starts with the research.Blog Commenting
