Browsing around the web, I noticed a post from Justin Shattuck on blog commenting. He sets up some simple rules and reccomendations that more people should follow when leaving comments.
- Keep the topic
- Repetitive, Rhetorical and Relentless
- There is no comment quota
- Make your message clear
- Own your words
- Nobody likes a know-it-all
- Comments are not emails
- Cite your sources
- Some common-sense
Some great tips, with full details on each, check out Justin’s blog at JustinShattuck.com.
One thing I would like to add though is a plea for people to actually comment if they have found a post useful, interesting or the opposite. It is nice to get comments and/or criticism. Keeps us on our toes, and let’s us know where you, the readers would like the site to go.
