Students need instruction on how to safely and respectfully create a thoughtful blog response. I find one way of getting students to create a thoughtful response is to give them an example or a requirement such as 2-5 complete sentences are required for a response which addresses the topic or question.
These are resources I find helpful for Blogging Etiquette, in addition I created a poster which hangs above my computer area in my classroom.
