Comment 2 was the most helpful because it seemed to have lot’s of questions which continue the conversations on the blog.

Which is the least helpful and WMYST?
Comment 6 was one on the least helpful because it was irrelevant to the blog and it didn’t have much helpful information to write and continue the conversation about.

I’ve learnt comments should be full of helpful information and they should be conversations but not texting conversations, interesting ones with relevant information. Also comments should contain at least 3 proper sentences.

This information that I’ve learnt has really helped me understand what a comment on a blog needs.

200 word writing challenge

The wind howled as the snow drifted slowly on to the ground as a girl called Isabel lived in a small cabin in the woods. Every Winter’s night her mum would prepare a warm cup of cocoa while Isabel watched the snow drop softly outside on the frosty surface.

The cabin felt cozy and warm hence the fireplace crackled in front of Isabel’s and her mums hands while both of them twinkled their fingers. While the night continued they began to toast white, fluffy marshmallows, as a result of  her mum’s marshmallow started to turn a light brown which was perfect to eat. The smell of sweetness floated in the heated air. Isabel began to fall asleep on her mum’s shoulder. “I’m tired too.” her mum chuckled softly.

She began covering the girl with a blanket and started to fall asleep. As the night continued the weather was colder and as the two laid down the wind brushed their hair peacefully.

The next morning Isabel woke up as the sun shined in her face. Isabel squinted at her mum to see if she was awake. She shook her mums shoulders aggressively and her mum began to say “I coming, I am!”

“Wake up! it’s Christmas!” Shouted the little girl.

“Santa came and left some presents for me!” Exclaimed Isabel.
