One of the most important aspects of a successful blog is the conversation that happens on that blog through comments, which visitors publish on blog posts. However, comment conversations can sometimes take a negative turn or feature spam links. That's why it's helpful to have a blog comment policy, so visitors understand what is and is not acceptable when commenting on your blog posts.
Following is a sample blog comment policy that you can use on your blog. Read the sample blog comment policy thoroughly and make any changes necessary to fit your goals for your blog. Keep in mind, this sample blog comment policy was not written by an attorney, and it's always best to have an attorney provide specific language for your blog for the best protection.
