Over the 3 years since I first created this blog I have tried to let others have their say. I look forward to others sharing their comments and their opinions. However from time to time I have had to delete comments that I felt were inappropriate. Most of the time people respect my right to decide what is appropriate and what is not, but recently I've had a commenter decide that he would post whatever he wanted to. This person has stated that he would continue to post objectionable comments regardless of what I say or do. Since this person refuses to be respectful, I've recently made a change to the comment setting on A View From Battleship Cove. Now before any comment will be published it must be approved by me. I apologize for the inconvenience.
A View From Battleship Cove recently published its 300th post! I don't think that when I started this little experiment in blogging that I ever could have thought about 300 posts later, or that thousands of people would read them.
Be on the lookout....
Political season is here! Don't be surprised if over the next few months you see plenty of comments for or against different political candidates. In fact, there has been some discussion amongst us local bloggers that you might even see blogs set up just for political gain. Be on the lookout for blogs that get started during the political season and promote some candidates and discredit others.
Speaking of start up blogs, I've said it before blogging is hard! People think I'm exaggerating but to maintain a blog and post on a regular basis can be work. The reality is I've seen more blogs come and go than come and stay. This was sent over to me by a friend!
