WHY COMMENTS ARE IMPORTANT
Comments are an important part of your class blog. Comments allow students, and other readers, to engage in discussions, share their thoughts and connect with your class blogs.
Comments allow your blog to become an interactive community. It opens up to the whole world and you can learn a lot from that constant interaction with other people. Remember that you’ll be communicating with people all over the world!
Important parts of the blogging process include :
1. Reading other students’ posts.
2. Commenting on other students’ posts.
3. Writing posts in response to other students’ posts
