I like these rules! It's fun to connect with other people online, but commenting needs to be done with the same politeness that would be used in a face to face conversation.

I teach grade 5 in New Brunswick, Canada. We are just beginning a class blog and I'm encouraging students to comment on each other's posts. I like these rules and will use them in my classroom. Do you have any tips for increasing traffic? My hope is that students will get really excited to share their work with a global audience.

I really think the comment rules are very helpful for people who are wondering how to comment on what they need to. The rules give you spacifics on how to comment so you what be lost.

Rules for commenting are very important. I believe sometimes people become lazy when typing and it is an awful habit to have. Rules for commenting help make it easier to comment. Politeness is a must. When everyone follows the rules the full blogging experience can be gained.
