My comments expand on the article, offer suggestions to help people, or explain why I think that the subject misses the mark. I don’t criticize or belittle the author on content or style, either. I do not clap on the point of view of the content, but how well it was presented. I sometimes clap just because the author had the nerve to attack the subject. I also clap if the subject was helpful to me.
As for my articles, I intend for them to help people. My first article, in my opinion, is as important to know as CPR. It can impact a large population every day. CPR can save lives, but it is rarely needed.
