The Etiquette Guide: Comments
Comments. It’s probably one of the reasons you blog – you’ve written a post, and you want to hear what other people think. But have you noticed more and more comments like this?

A good comment should try to add to the discussion, and not be too spammy. We know quite a few bloggers who will mark comments with excessive self promoting links as spam because it feels like the commenter is just leaving it there to persuade people to click through to their site. Most bloggers encourage constructive criticism in their comments – how else can you make things better if you don’t know what to change?
Over to you – what do you think a good comment is made up of? What puts you off clicking through to a persons blog based on their comment? (And how are you getting on with the comments challenge? Are you finding it easier to leave comments on certain types of posts?)
