Commenting is a huge part of getting feedback on posts and revising. Personally I’m all for comments but you need to know the difference between a bad comment and a fantastic one. That’s were my rules come in…
When giving someone feedback you need to specify were and why they need to do so.
2. Be Harsh
Being harsh is a fantastic way to get down to the nitty gritty and let the writer know what he excelled at and what he needs to work on.
3. Be Helpful
When commenting try to have helpful feedback.
4. Keep it Clean
Swearing isn’t a intelligent way to explain yourself, keep it clean.
