TOW 3: The Importance of Blog Comments

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

Blogging is a way to interact with other people from all different walks of life. When you blog you share your thoughts and feelings for others to read and reflect upon. People exchange ideals and give advice on others blogs through comments. Commenting on blogs is the way that people are connected and get to share ideas with one another. Without the comment section of blogging this would just be a journal or a diary. I would be talking to myself and sharing my ideas with no one. Because I am new to blogging I haven’t quite gotten the hang of figuring out the comments and therefore cannot offer much advice except this: Just like when commenting on peoples ideas and thoughts in any other situation I believe that it is important to be genuine and honest with the person without being rude. It is necessary to share your agreements and concerns with one’s blog without discouranging them from writing ever again. Blogging is supposed to be fun and it is supposed to enhance communication. It should not be used to tear peope down or hurt anyones feelings so be honest and not rude. Get your point across, but don’t tear anyone down in the process.
