How to leave a salty comment
Let's talk a little bit about commenting. Commenting on blogs is important for socializing and being able to talk to friends that you haven't talked to FOR MONTHS! Speaking of, you don't just want to comment on your friend's posts because you also want to meet and connect with new people. In this blog post, I'm going to be talking about how to leave an interesting and well-seasoned comment.
The first thing that you need in a great comment is something to comment on. Here is the link to all of the 6th-grade blogs in Mr. Gonzalez's class for the 2020-2021 school year:
Once you have clicked on this link, find the name of someone you want to comment on. Remember you don't want to just comment on your friends. Say hello to them and then find a name you wouldn't usually click on. Once you choose a name then find a post that you are interested in or that catches your eye. Then click "comment".
Something that I've learned is that you want to make a comment as if it's a letter to your grandmother in Boston. So if I leave a comment I might start it by saying "Hello (name)," so they know the comment is thoughtful.
Next, you mention something you liked about the post and a reason you like it. You could even ask a question to initiate conversation.
Finally, you end with a sentence that concludes your opinion on the post. This could be a "good job" or "thanks".
There are a few rules to leaving high quality and deliciously salty comments.
1. Don't troll people. Trolling is a sort of bullying online or trying to start conflict on purpose. People who troll are dim bulbs.
2. Don't give people comments that are less than two sentences. Because it's a waste of time to read something that isn't intriguing. If you just comment "hi" it shows that you don't really care about the person's time or post.
3. You also don't want to post a comment that is extremely long. This is because people will lose interest in your comment because replying to a comment that is super long is annoying.
Thank you for reading about commenting on blog posts!
