Comments on blog posts

Although I will be reading all the posts and comments and you will receive credit for them, I will only be commenting on half the class's blogs each week. Don't worry if you don't see a comment from me; you'll still receive credit.

Here are the guidelines for posting comments that I mentioned in class. I've added them to our weblogs page at

Respond to at least one post by another group by Thursday at 9 p.m.
Each week, you will respond to another person's blog by 9 p.m. Since new blog posts won't be available until 9 p.m., you'll be reading and responding to posts from the previous week. You don't have to wait until Thursday to post a comment, though. For example, last week's blog posts (8/30) will receive comments by 9 p.m. this Thursday (9/6).
  • The requirement is one comment on one other person's blog, although you're welcome to post other comments if you wish.
  • Comments should be substantial: 100-200 words that discuss the content of the post. Try asking questions, adding your own observations, or mentioning another blog post that seems to respond to this one.
