Blogging Guidelines

How to write a quality blog post.

Posting on a blog can be easy. All you need is a blog. blogs can be used for a number of different purposes. You can use it to showcase photos, share news, teach others or simply, a way to express yourself through different media. Regardless of your chosen reason to blog, your post needs to have substance (that’s if you want people to interact and visit frequently). Substance basically means that you post needs to be QUALITY.

As a class, we have brainstormed what we believe makes a blog post quality. We have browsed blogs from all over the world and we have formed these guidelines to help us when we are blogging.


Each post needs to be introduced. This will explain what the post is about. This is where you explain the WHAT, WHO, WHEN, WHERE and WHY.


This is where all the information is. It should be the biggest part of the post!

  • Provide lots of relevant information about the post.
  • Use visual media to add more substance to the post.
  • Make sure you use paragraphs

Make sure all the work is original, NO STEALING!


This is where you sum up all the main points from the post. Give a little sense of how you or anyone involved felt after the experience.



We hope that this will allow our posting in future to grow and become better the more we practice. Please let us know what you think of our guidelines and if you have any advice for us, please share!



How to write a quality comment.

Today for writing we were learning to write a quality comment.

One word comments, we felt, didn’t serve any purpose at all, so our goal is to not comment with just one word.

Below is an info-graph to help anyone write a quality comment on a blog post.
