Week 2: Let’s comment!

An important part of the Student Blogging Challenge is connecting with students and other classes by reading posts and leaving comments.

Comments allow you, and your readers, to engage in discussions, share thoughts and connect with your blog.

Most new bloggers find publishing posts easy and commenting harder!  Your bonus activity this week is to learn more about commenting and improve your commenting skills!

What makes a good comment?

Comments transform your blog from a static space to an interactive community.  Commenting is one way a blogger can create conversations.

Your readers leave a comment that hopefully asks questions (which encourage conversation), you reply back to their comments on your blog, then visit their blog to read their posts and engage with them on their blog.

The better your comment that more chance you have in creating conversations.

Start by watching either of the following two videos on Commenting.

Watch Mrs Yollis’s ‘How to Write a Quality Comment‘.  You can also watch it on Vimeo if YouTube is blocked in your School District.

Watch Nicolas Weiss’s Leaving High Quality Blog comments video  if you are a high school student.

Now visit Huzzah’s Commenting Guideline to learn some more commenting tips.

Important tips:

  • Refer to Adding a comment support documentation if you are unsure how to add a comment.
  • Comments may be moderated on your blog.   Remember to check your Comments folder, and comment spam folder,  to approve any pending comments.
  • Include the url (address) in your comment when you leave a comment on another blogger’s post so the blogger can visit your blog and comment.

Below is an example of a comment from Huzzah’s blog that shows how to include your blog URL in your comment.

Comment example

Activity 1: Leave a comment on this post. 

Each week the best posts published in the Student Blogging Challenge are featured in our Flipboard magazine.

To check your posts we need you to leave a comment with a link to your post on this blog whenever you finish a weekly activity.

So your first activity is to practice leaving a comment below with a link to your post for an activity you’ve completed this week or last week.

Here is an example from Ayla last week:

Hi Ms. W,
I have just finished this week’s blogging challenge by uploading my avatar and making my about me page! Here is the link: http://aylaz13.edublogs.org/about-me/
So far blogging I have enjoyed creating my blog and I hope to get lots of comments
Thanks
~Ayla
http://aylaz13.edublogs.org
http://huzzah.edublogs.org

Activity 2:  Practicing commenting on a class blog

Mrs Smith has published an excellent activity that guides you through commenting, learning to read student posts and practicing comments.

Visit Mrs Smith’s I’m New Here post to work through the tasks in her post and then leave a comment on her post.

Activity 3: Write a post, create a video or create a poster about commenting.

Might be tips to get more visitors,  guidelines for acceptable comments on your blog, examples of good and bad comments – think outside the square. Remember you don’t have to approve all comments. It is your blog; send some to the trash and if it is a company trying to get you to visit their blog to buy something, then label it as spam.

Here are some links to commenting guidelines written by students and classes. Class in New Zealand, grade 11/12 class in USA, Huzzah class blog in Canada, Abbey has a blogging guideline page, Mrs Allen created a poster about commenting, Shaffer writers, WarriorKat uses lots of visuals in her guidelines,  Sophie had a great post, the Blogging Frogs have some great tips, Cole wrote about commenting

Activity 4: Visit other student or class blogs

Visit 4 other blogs on the lists above the header area. Leave a quality comment on one post on each blog. Might be the About Me page or another post you found interesting.  Write a post on your blog mentioning who you visited, which post you left a comment on and why, then include the comment you left. Hint: make sure you copy the comment before you hit the submit button.

There will be two posts this week so this one has been published earlier than normal.

    So far I have finished my week 1 activities. This is my post for the second. Thank you!
    -Maxine

  5. Dear Ms. W,

    I have learned so much about blogging just by completing the first couple of weeks of the challenge. Creating my avatar was probably my favorite activity so far because I got to create a fictional version of myself online! I look forward to much more blogging in the future! Here is the link to my blog: http://gavinbowma9802.edublogs.org

  6. HI Ms. W
    I have just finished this weeks blogging challenges by finishing my about me and doing my avatar. I am excited to start the new challenges.
    Thank you,
    Jonah

  7. Hi Ms W
    I have being doing the student blog challenge but no comments have been made on my blog. I have updated my About Me post and have done the Australian Food post I also decorated my blog but taken that down.

    If you would like to like at my blog here is the URL:

  8. Hi Miss W.,
    As a teacher, I am learning quite a bit about teaching blogging! I love all the content you include in the posts and want to share it all, but I don’t have that much time in my 45-minute class once a week. It takes time for my students to read the posts and the create a post in response, so many of my students are doing just one activity each week. We are also behind the schedule because we started late. We will have to skip a week or two to stay on track, but I will keep try to come back to these posts after we catch up.

    Do you have any suggestions for generating more content from the students?

    Here are the posts from the Friday class I teach. Thank you!

    https://kidblog.org/class/mrs-arendts-5r-library-class/posts

    • Hi Mrs Arendt,
      Students only need to complete one activity each week from the challenge and if you are behind that is OK too. Just use the activities throughout the rest of the year. The first three weeks are the challenges that are important: introducing themselves, learning to comment and learning how to find creative common images. All the other challenges each week are based on a theme or topic that would interest kids of all ages and countries.

      Have your students visit other class or student blogs and leave comments – remember they need to include the URL of your class blog so you can then get visitors coming to your blog as well.

      Often students think they can only write in their blogs at school and only do the suggested post from the teacher. Once you say that it is their blog or page and they can add posts about the things they are passionate about, then they might start doing more posts. Here is one example from Penelope in grade 2 – has only had her blog for two months http://www.xpress360.net.au/gou19penelope

      • Miss W.
        Thank you for the suggestions. Penelope’s blog is absolutely amazing! I plan to share it with my classes. I am encouraged to know that I can keep going even if we are behind the schedule, and I like that I can continue to use the posts even after the challenge is done.

        I need to give my students time to comment on other’s blog posts and help them to understand that this is their blog. Encouraging them to take ownership of it rather than view it a library work is a great idea, too. I have a formal observation in a couple of weeks, and chose the blogging unit as the lesson to observe. Thank you again for the suggestions to improve my students posts.

      • This week’s activity is visiting other blogs and commenting. No other activities but that, so hopefully students will be able to get out there and start making connections.

  9. Dear Miss W,
    I have enjoyed blogging very much. I had just recently finished the first weeks blogging challenge. It was extremely fun creating my own avatar and writing a poem about myself. I really liked creating my own avatar because I was able to create a virtual character of my self that looks similar to me. Wring the poem about myself was exciting because I was able to talk about my personality. You should come check out my blog
    https//:jadenjp3.edublogs.org /wp-admin/profile.php. Thanks!

  10. Dear Miss. W,

    These informative tips taught me so much about how to properly comment on other people’s blogs. The videos were so interesting and will help me make constructive comments towards other people. Here is the link to my blog: http://danieaflal2002.edublogs.org. Enjoy!

    Thank you,

  15. Miss W,
    My Tuesday class has posted for week 2 about commenting. Some students had a hard time completing the activities in one class period, so this post took two classes. I will be modifying the activities and asking them to complete only one activity during class in the future. They can follow up on other activities outside of class. Hopefully, this will let them experience the benefits of blogging without overwhelming them.

    I love the activities you have posted each week so far. I hope you enjoy reading their blog posts. https://kidblog.org/class/mrs-arendts–library-class/posts

    Thank you.

  16. Hi Mrs W. I really enjoyed this weeks blogging challenge because I can now comment on other people’s blogs even if they are in different countries.

  17. Hello Mrs. W,

    Our class has enjoyed blogging so much. The activities included in the challenge are engaging for all students. I have seen growth in technology skills, writing and self-confidence, just in the few weeks we have been blogging. Are the activities the same with each challenge?

    I enjoyed making avatars with students. Some of the recommended sites were not as easy as others and not all of them would allow us to save and download them with chrome-books. You can see my avatar on my blog: http://whittlekids.edublogs.org/

    Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this challenge!
    Mrs. Whittle

    • G’day Mrs Whittle,
      Some activities are similar every challenge such as creating avatars and about me pages/posts, commenting skills and images. But I try to think of other topics every three or four sets of challenges so students don’t get the same activities each time they participate. But as there are usually 4 or more activities to choose from each week, there is plenty to choose from throughout the year when the challenge is not running.

      There is also the chance for a class to run one of the weeks with their choice of topic. Please contact me if your class would like to do that.

  18. Hi Miss W,
    I really like the blogging challenges they are very fun and challenging. I am also learning a lot about computers that I did’t know about before.

  19. Hi Miss W. Thanks for setting these activities I have really enjoyed it so far. I have had some of comments. From Teagan

  20. Hello Miss W!

    This sounds like a great activity the Student Blogging Challenge. I happy to be in this blogging challenge it is fun so far even though we are only on week two.

  21. Hello Miss W!

Thank you for making this fun activity for kids all around the world. I think it is a great way to meet new people and share your thoughts with other people. It’s also an exciting unit in my library class! Thanks again, Bye!

    Sincerly,
    Jadyn 🙂

  22. Hi Miss W,
    I love this blogging site! Thank you so much! It was very kind of you to set this up for us. You are a good teacher. Thanks!

    -Grace

  23. HI Miss w
    This article about commenting correctly and incorrectly really helped me comment on other peoples blogs. I have had more people visit my blog because I leave my URL thank you for posting this for the student blogging challenge to help us know the right and wrong ways to comment. Please visit me at: http://morgan287.edublogs.org/

    • Thank you Yoongeon,
      I had never seen this avatar creator website before so I will have to add it to my list. Also thank you and all your classmates for leaving comments on this post.

  24. HI Mrs W! I find this extremely helpful for my school work. Some other tips for commenting are not to use ‘and’ too much and to put a comma before the word ‘but’. In my opinion, the Student Blogging Challenge is great because it gives you fun things to add onto your blog. However, I do have some questions. What inspires your amazing ideas to put on the challenge? How much time do you spend online? And last of all, what would you do if you went blank for ideas when you were thinking of another challenge to put on the blog?
    Hope you reply;
    Grace 😉

    • G’day Grace,
      What great questions! Sometimes I do have blank moments of what to do a post about in the challenge. So then I will ask my friends on Twitter if any of them would like to write a post. This challenge Sue Waters will be writing some of the posts. I’m online every day usually from about 9am until about 10pm but I do take breaks to go for walks or do some gardening. If you or your classmates have some great ideas of a topic for a challenge, please feel free to email me – see the link on the challenge blog – or leave another comment here.

    • G’day ANita,
      I began the student blogging challenge back in 2008 when I was a teacher. My students each had their own blog but nobody from overseas was commenting on them. SO my Twitter friend Sue Waters sent our a message and three teachers from Canada, USA and Portugal replied, so we started commenting on each others blogs and writing posts to share. That’s how the challenge started. You can read more in the About page on the challenge blog.

  25. I like the Student Blogging Challenge because it teaches you about the internet and I can’t wait to see what we will be doing next. Type this in the search bar to see are class blog.

  26. I love being part of the student blogging challenge because I love making and going on other peoples blogs, it is so fun, you can basically make anything!

  27. Dear Miss W,

    I love the new and exciting challenges. They are so much fun! I think that making avatars were cool and I can not wait for the new challenge next week. I loved the tips you gave me and my class

    From Abby

  28. Hi Miss W,
    I have really enjoyed doing the student blog challenge so far. I find it fun to look at other people’s blogs to see how they have done the challenges and see if they have done them differently to me.

Here’s a link to my blog but my actual posts for this week won’t come out until a day or two but when it comes (because it will) please leave a comment telling me if I’m doing it right because I don’t have a clue if I’m doing it right.

Here is the link to my blog. Sorry if the posts don’t show up; they’re still pending: http://hmsangela.edublogs.org/

    Sincerely,

  39. Dear Mrs. Waters,
    Commenting is serious business! We just reviewed the comments on our blog and unfortunately, had to delete quite a few because they weren’t quality comments. There were tons of spelling, punctuation, and grammar mistakes which made the comments hard to read. The comments didn’t give enough detail, for example they didn’t refer to the post or something specific in the post. The comments weren’t creating conversations either. Some weren’t polite.
    So, what makes a great comment? We have a video with ten tips. Please check out our video on our blog http://mrsmckelvey.edublogs.org/tips-for-commenting/

    From,
    Bloggin’ Frogs
    http://mrsmckelvey.edublogs.org

  40. In these videos I learned allot about blogging and quality comments, and be sure to take a look at Mr. 2.0.s’ blog.

  41. I’ve never blogged before so the “How to write a quality blog!” was helpful to me. I’m also having fun with the week two blog challenge. Are you?

  42. I really liked those videos talking about posting good quality comments. I love blogging because I can post things and post comments to make other bloggers feel good!!

  43. Hi!
    I like the challenges so much! I haven’t commented very much,but I like to comment! Do you like to comment?
    Bye,
    Fluffy Kitty

    • Hi Fluffy Kitty,
      I love commenting. Whenever a student leaves me a comment on the challenge blog and includes the URL to their own blog, I will visit and leave them a comment.

  44. So many comments!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the post about emotions and you put my answer on it.

    P.S. It is the second fourth grader one.

  45. Hi Miss W,
    Last week I completed creating my avatar and making my about me page. I hope you get a chance to look at my blog

  54. The post helps people if they don’t know how to comment on a post properly. The video also helps because it shows you what you can use to make a good post.

  55. Thank you for writing such a good and helpful post. I really think that these blogs will turn out great. I can’t wait until we’re in the further weeks and can really get into it.
    Here’s the requested link

  56. I really thank you for doing this. Before I signed up for the Student Blogging Challenge, I was really lost on what to do with my blog. This challenge has really got me started on commenting. Thanks again!

  57. This was a great learning experience! I didn’t know about this stuff,But I have a question. When making a comment can you make a link to another blog not your own?

    – positiveion.edublogs.org

    • G’day Positive Ion,
      Yes you can certainly add links to other blogs within your posts and comments. You know how to do this in comments and you can see how I do it often in the posts I write. This is called hyperlinking or linking. Highlight the words you want someone to click on, then click on the chain in the top row of your icons on your post dashboard, a new window will pop up and you paste in the URL of where you want them to go to and click on submit or similar word. Sue Waters from Edublogs has written a post about inserting links into posts.

  58. I think those videos were great to teach good commenting. These will help me out a lot. Are there any other ways to leave a good comment?

  59. I really like how this post has videos as well as written tips. This really helps if you have no idea what to commment about! I am part of the blogging challenge and I like the ideas you have on it. I especially like the post on avatars.
    Thank you!

  60. Hi Mrs. W,
    I found your post very helpful while learning how to comment. I love how commenting allows us to interact with each other, and gives us feed back so we can learn how to do better!
    Here’s my blog, I hope you will check out my continuation of Sleepy Hollow!

  62. I think this week’s challenge activity was very fun because it encourages students to read posts from other people’s blogs. It also helps students to be aware of what they are typing on someone else’s blog.

  63. Hi Mrs. W.
    Thanks for the challenge. Now I now how to make good comments on other people’s blogs. I also liked the first challenge. I can’t wait until the next challenge.

  64. The best thing is that this might be a place that everybody around the globe can visit if we all post a paper with a link to this site!

  65. Hi Miss W
    I am so excited for this weeks blogging challenge. I think that it will be cool having conversations with other students all over the world.

  70. Hi Miss W,

    Thanks for the tip!

  72. What I learned is that thare is sevrsal types questions in text. Like though question and simple questions.
    So that is what I learned.

  73. The videos were great information. Leaving a good comment needs to have correct grammar and not slang words. Leaving nice comments or even helpful critics start a great conversation

  74. Hi Mrs.W
    This is a good post because it informs on people how to make good comments. It uses good videos to help as well.

  75. Dear Mrs.W
    I love doing the blogging challenge, it has made blogging way more fun now!
    I am guessing that this is for activity 1, as it states “leave a comment below”. I am really going to enjoy the blogging challenge! For instance I really love challenges and I really like blogging. I hope you will be really fond about my comments on the blogging challenge!

    • These posts DO feed me good information about how to make a successful blog, and even though I’m new to blogs, I’m getting better at finding things and posting more specific posts.

  82. I love all these activities and I think you should do more with stories and articles. I like the aha moments and I wonder activities.

  83. I am very cited to be started my very own blog and I am very excited to finish all of these steps for today. I would like to say this video gave me great feedback of teaching me how to comment on a video, now I can comment over anything without thinking if it is good enough and what I am missing in my comment.

    Thanks,

    Aaliyah

  84. I really likes you guys video. It taught me a lot! Like not to use more explanation point if you want to show excitement you use more words!

  85. I have really enjoyed the challenges for this week I can’t wait to do them. They look very fun!
    Sincerely,
    Tori

  86. I have now completed challenge 1 for week 2. This post is very helpful on what a good comment is. Now on to challenge 4!

  87. Hi Miss W,

    I’ve just completed last week’s Blogging Challenge. I changed my avatar and added an “About Me” page as well as practicing by commenting on my classmates’ blog posts. Here is my blog: http://marypatisd19.edublogs.org/\
    I had fun thinking about facts people might not know about me and hope to continue writing blogs.
    Thank you!
    Mary Pat 🙂

  88. I think those tips are really great for helping write a good comment. I really enjoyed watching the videos. I found even more on YouTube. Great use of resources!

  89. Hi Mrs W
    I really enjoyed completing the all about me activity. It was fun to be creative about something I know so much about. I did a playlist of my life. It was weird because I learned a little bit more about myself. You can check out my post on my website.
    Here’s the link to my blog.

  93. Hi miss W,
    Blogs to me can be very difficult to understand but they can also be very fun and exciting! For instance when you first start blogging its very hard and sometimes confusing. and I’m just starting to get the hang of blogging, so its quite hard but I still think its fun. 🙂

  100. Thanks for these wonderful tips on commenting. I will really put them into play in my future comments. I have really enjoyed the student blogging challenge.

  101. Hey Mrs. W
    I like this challenge and feel it could be very useful. Commenting is always a good way to put yourself out there and tell others what you liked and feel. I think it’s a fun respectful way to show everyone what you think is important.

  102. I think that it is very important to leave good comments because if you aren’t careful, you could hurt someone’s feelings.

  103. Dear Mrs.W I finished my About Me page On the 7’th , sorry that I didn’t tell you later, but i hope you like my About Me page on my blog .It’s http://james82.edublogs.org/.

Thank you.

  104. Hello Miss. W,
    I am loving doing the Student Blogging Challenge so far.
    I really enjoyed last weeks task, creating an avatar for our blogs. I enjoyed being creative and looking at different websites to see which character best described my personality. I think that the videos you posted for this week helped me a lot and taught me how to write a good comment. Thank you for supplying them. I am looking forward to next weeks tasks.

    Here is my blog URL.

  105. Dear Mrs.W
    I love doing the blogging challenge, it has made blogging way more fun now!

    Here is a link for my blog… http://nichole160.edublogs.org/ I hope you enjoy my blog Mrs.W!

    • Hi Kennedy,
      I tried to leave a comment on your blog URL but it told me only people subscribed to the blog can view it. You might need to change your visibility settings under dashboard> settings> discussion or reading.

  106. I think it’s important to comment around a lot of things because it helps people connect to other people out there and can start a lot of discussion. I didn’t finish the challenge yet, but this is my blog url,http://oreog.edublogs.org/. Maybe you could come and read some of my blogs.

  107. Hello Mrs.W,
    this really helped me make a good comment. The 5 tips the video really gave good information. It helped me make good comments and blog posts.

  108. Hi Miss W.
    I really like blogging and enjoy seeing other’s blogs and i just finished the challenges for week one. Here’s my URL so you can check it out http://asiaam.edublogs.org/ hope other’s can check out my blog also and I hope you enjoy it.

    • G’day Mrs Black,
      I love your post for week 1 but when I tried to flip it to the magazine it wouldn’t go – maybe you need to go to dashboard> settings> reading and under site visibility allow search engines. Also, so that the posts of your students attached to your class blog can be flipped go to dashboard> my class> settings> again allow search engines

  109. Thank you a lot for all the tips to make a good blog and to also make a good comment I will remember this when using a comment. Thank you.

  110. Hey this weeks challenges, comments, and activities are really fun and exciting. After reading all these instructions on commenting hopefully I’ll leave a good comment that will help others. Hopefully I get a chance to post stuff on cyber bullying and good and bad comment. Hopefully you will visit my and comment on my post. Here’s the link: http://emerson484.edublogs.org
