How to Critique a Blog

Critiquing should be constructive

"Congratulations! You’ve decided to join the ranks of bloggers. You’re going to love it! 

Before you get too far into it, though, I’d like to help you avoid some common beginning blogging mistakes. These mistakes are almost a rite of passage, but why waste that time with mistakes you can easily avoid?"

So, how do we go about critiquing constructively? Try this technique . . . 
  • Write 3 things you like about the submission - focus on both content and design.
  • Offer 3 suggestions for improvement - "Try ????", or "Instead of this, try that?"
  • Focus on the positive, not the negative . . . writing is a process.
