A Visitor’s Privileges
If you are a visitor, you can read anything on the entire Blog and you can comment on the entire blog. To do the latter follow the steps below.
The easiest step to do is to COMMENT. To do so, read any posting that you like. At the end, there will always be a box for you to place a comment. Follow the directions there.
Unfortunately, you can not start a new discussion on your own. Contact either Edward Cogswell or Dennis Cogswell, listed on our Contact Us Page if you want to make a post. If they approve, they will do so. If you seek an “Authoring membership”, which gives more privileges, also contact either Edward or Dennis Cogswell.
