Our Blog
Watch this space! We plan to put up two new posts every week, on Monday and Thursday, and a mystery photograph every Sunday. And we take requests! Anything you'd like to see or have always wanted to know about, let us know and we'll try to put it up on the blog. You can e-mail us at hhscottage[at]hastingshistorical[dot]org.

Visit us from time to time to see what’s new, or subscribe to receive our posts automatically. If you want to get our posts by e-mail, you can enter your e-mail address in the box on the right side of this screen. This service is through Feedburner. Their system collects the e-mail addresses and sends out the posts the day that we put them up (or sometimes the day after) -- we do not see these e-mail addresses and you will get no additional marketing e-mail from them. If you use an RSS feeder, like Bloglines, Netvibes, Newsgator, My Yahoo, or Google, you can use the buttons under "Subscribe to Feed" on the right and our posts will appear among your feeds.

We are always happy to hear from you! Click on the "Comments" link at the bottom of the post you want to comment about. Write your comment in the white box at the bottom of the screen. If you don't already have a profile on a Google account or on one of the other blogging systems, choose the "Name/URL" option on the "Comment As" menu, and type your name into the "Name" box. Then click the "Continue" button. If this process gets frustrating, just shoot us an e-mail!

The Hastings Historical Society reserves the right to remove or edit any comment that we deem inappropriate or that is not directly pertinent to the topic under discussion.
