One of the things that make this blog different to other News sources is that the Cobourg Community actively comments on articles. In fact people tell me that’s one major reason they visit this site. Print Newspapers do something similar with their Letters to the Editor and Opinion columns (but without comments). At one point, Grahame Woods was writing an opinion column on Cobourg Blog and had a good following. Effective immediately, Cobourg Blog will accept “Letters to the Editor” from any Cobourg resident or business. They will be clearly labelled as such and as usual with this category, will be subject to rules: the real author will be named but not their email; promotion of events is allowed; advertising or promoting a business is only allowed if it’s a new thing; comments are not allowed. See all rules at the About Page here.
For a number of reasons, letters will be hosted on www.CobourgInternet.ca although the navigation menu at Cobourg Blog will include a link.
The main reason for the establishment of this new page is to provide a way for people to make a statement about a topic not covered in a post. Another is that I often get requests to promote something or mention an event. Now you can send me a “letter”!
Here are the “rules”.
The first “letter” is from MPP David Piccini talking about a Government initiative. Go here.
