One Blogger’s Comments Requirements

I noticed one blogger https://robertbowman.net/commenting-on-this-site/ who has a detailed explanation about what’s allowed/not allowed when it comes to commenting on his blog. I am sure some consider his restrictions to be over the top. In my experience, a blogger adds restrictions like this for one of two main reasons. In no particular order,

  • A) the blogger had to deal with comments that led to making restrictions
  • B) they noticed blogs where there were no restrictions and saw the results

Granted, not every blogger will face this problem. In many cases, bloggers won’t have a problem with whatever comments are added.

My goal is to keep my blog G rated and family friendly. I do re-blog, share, or link to sites that are not G rated. I may sometimes post things that some may not consider G rated or family friendly, but some people’s definitions of those two concepts are so limited that I doubt many of those blogs would pass their definitions.

Personally, I think every blogger needs to decide which is and isn’t acceptable for both comments and guest blogger posts if they allow guest bloggers.

When I comment on another blog, I have my own set of restrictions on what I will and will not include in a comment. It pretty much mirrors Robert’s list.
