Student blogging guidelines

When you press
PUBLISH, what you have written is instantly visible all around the world. Make sure you think carefully about what you write in blogs and in comments and always follow these rules.


  • Do not use your last name.
  • Don’t be specific when writing about yourself. eg. Say: “I play football with a local team” rather than “I play for Bromyard Youth”.
  • Never give anyone your address, email address or phone number. You can keep in touch through the blog.
  • Do not post photos of others without their permission.

Good Comments!

  • When people take the time to write a post, it’s fantastic if you can find the time to write a comment to let them know what you thought.

    When you write comments, try to keep these things in mind:

    1. Be positive!  Remember to tell the poster the things you liked about the post.

    2. If you have any criticism, then write it down, but be positive. Use the ‘even better if’ style of feedback.

    3. Just saying ‘cool’ or gr8 might make the poster feel good, but even better would be saying why it’s cool.

    Comments can be read by anyone from all over the world – teachers, parents, governors, politicians, celebrities (!), so use your best writing skills and try to be as accurate as possible with spellings – take pride in your comments!

    4. If you want to tell the poster about one of your posts, then give them the full web address to help them find it – if you’re really advanced, then include a link.

    5. Perhaps try one of these comment starters…

    If we keep these guidelines in mind, our site will be a really fun place to publish our work.

    Have fun!

    If you see something on this blog that you feel shouldn't be published to the world, please let me know.
