How to Be a Commentator Using Any Media

Have you ever felt your ideas needing expression such as writing about events and ideas as a commentator? Here are some suggestions to try to do that.


  1. 1
    Post ideas on your own page (blog) and post to friends: MySpace pages and other such sites, but do it carefully so as not to turn friends into opponents.
  2. 2
    Comment on serious or humorous issues, news, sports and events to present those as you see them, and use your own spin.
  3. 3
    Write a How to article at wikiHow.
  4. 4
    Send emails to all your friends and acquaintances telling them about your blog, letters to "ed", and other such alternative ways of publishing.
  5. 5
    Leave comments on newspaper or magazine sites, argument or praise for articles to give your take.
  6. 6
    Comment in writing on radio and TV website response pages.
  7. 7
    Call talk shows and get your voice on radio and TV. It can be time consuming and then you may not get your point made before you are cut off.
  8. 8
    Make comments at online, political websites: find forums that interest you to contribute to the ongoing discussions, etc.
  9. 9
    Use social networking: Facebook, Twitter, to comment to friends so that their friends -- and "friends of their friends" may see them, etc.
  10. 10
    Disagree or agree in interesting ways but carefully making points about/with opposing/agreeable writers, editors and commentators of the print media, websites, radio and TV shows.
  11. 11
    Make an interesting and informative video and post it on YouTube and other such sites.
  12. 12
    Chat at sites that allow expression in your areas of interest.
  13. 13
    Write letters to the editors of magazines and newspapers by email or send them by customary mail.
  14. 14
    Research self-publishing websites that allow you to post your works for free, and then people read sample pages and can purchase your booklet or such by downloading if they would like.


  • Post commentary on politicians websites and email to them being sure to give your city, state and postal code (ZIP code in the U.S.), and send a copy to various media -- your candidates and others plus to officeholders that you agree/disagree with on issues -- to attempt to influence the flow of issues.
  • Expressing your ideals may be good catharsis, cleansing, for your mind and nerves.


  • You may receive evasive, unfair, irrational and "personal" responses instead of concepts really pertaining to your topic.
