Blogging tips from Grey Main School

Tip #1: Start with a greeting 

Remember to address the blogger by name.

Tip #2: Compliment in a Specific Way
A compliment is a great way to begin a comment. 
Remember to comment about something specific. Rather than writing ‘I really liked your post,’ you could write ‘I really liked your vivid description of the theme park, it made me feel like I was there.’

Tip #3: Add New Facts 

If you know something about the topic, you can add more factual information in your comment.

Tip #4: Make a Connection 

What does the post remind you of? Try to make a connection to yourself, to the world or to another text. For example, you could write ‘your post reminded me of when I went to Waterbom two years ago.’

Tip #5: End with a Question 

Try to start a conversation. Ask the blogger a relevant question and hopefully they will reply.

Tip # 6: Proofread Your Comment 

When you blog, many people may be reading your posts and comments, so it is very important to proofread.


  1. Hi MatarikiMahutonga,
    Olivia here from Otautau School.
    This is similar to what my class did for a blog comment. I like how you put it on your blog. Also some of those things aren't what my class put with our ideas and tips for a blog comment. Do you have a school pet? My school does, we have a little cat named Oreo he's black with white boots.

  2. Hello!
    I really like how you are borrowing ideas from other schools!
    I remember when we wrote explanations an we followed tool kits to mark each other's work.
    How long have you posted on you blog?
