Our Favorite Blogs: Pirate's Cove

This article is the third in a scheduled eight-part series. We here at Jumping in Pools love our fellow blogs out there on internet-land, so here is something to give back.

One of our favorite blogs: Pirate's Cove

Why they're cool: Pirate's Cove is in-your-face unabashedly conservative, and that's a good thing. Take a minute and look at the right side of their blog and you'll see patriotic pictures and sayings. Here's a mash up of them:
Pirate's Cove Tells Us About Themselves

What is your site's goal for the next year?

I'd like to grow my stats to about 1,500-2,000 per day, per
Sitemeter, but, more importantly, I'd like to ramp up the commenting
by visitors.

What makes your site unique?
That's a toughy, since so many of us cover so much of the same
stories. Perhaps the one big difference is my Sunday Patriot Pinup
post, which I do without fail, along with using pinups for special
occasions, which has spawned some other types of posts at other
sites, such as The Other McCain's Rule Five Sunday. It's probably
one of the longest running features within the blogosphere.

Also, very few blogs still have any sort of pirate theme, though, I
generally avoid the pirate talk. It gets rather difficult to type in that
manner :)
When did you found your site?

Back in July 2004. Started out on Lycos, moved quickly to Typepad,
then finally moved to hosted Wordpress for the extra capabilities.

Anything else you would like to add?

One of the things I have always enjoyed about the conservative
blogosphere is how much fun we have along with the serious posts.
That is just something we do not find in the left-o-sphere. Life has
to be fun!

Here's a screenshot of Pirate's Cove:
So go there and enjoy the conservatism. Read, repeat, and comment on their articles!

Morning, Michael. Thanks for the story, I really appreciate. Sorry I haven't linked back, was clearing out my webmail, the email was in the spam folder, along with one from my Mom.

And thanks for the kind words, Lonely Conservative!
