Comments on blogs can cause journalists concerns, but problems with comments can be addressed

Mindy said that comments on blogs cause concern for newspapers. But she said that doesn’t have to be a concern:

  • You can delete any comment — it’s your blog.
  • Do not delete a comment only because it disagrees with what you wrote.
  • Read comments often.
  • Respond often.
  • Do not respond to every comment.

I agree with Mindy that WordPress has a great process for screening comments. You, as the blogger, have the ability to read and approve or delete each comment before it’s posted.
