Have Something to Say? Blog About it on Newton Patch!

Patch.com is adding a platform for local bloggers starting next month and we want to hear your voice.

Starting next month, Newton Patch will be making room for local bloggers on the site.

We're looking for bloggers who can riff on various topics, share their personality and engage our readers in discussions.

Patch is more than a news site, it's an online conversation about your community.

  • Are you passionate about Newton's core issues?
  • Are you an expert craftsman or hobbyist who can share do-it-yourself tips?
  • Do you have strong opinions about local government?
  • Can you just make us all laugh?
  • Can you write compellingly?

Then we want to hear from you.

This isn't a reporting job. It's blogging. You write what you want to say when you want to say it. Do it on your schedule, whether that's posting multiple entries per day or a couple times a month.

Patch won't own what you post, so you can repost your entries to your other blogs. Much like The Huffington Post has done, Patch is providing local bloggers an online platform to have their words seen by a larger audience.

Be interesting. Be provocative. Be yourself.

My role as editor would be to review blog entries submitted to Newton Patch to ensure quality. I may make small spelling, grammar and style changes to help your blog shine, but the content is all yours.

If you'd like to chat about the opportunity to share your unique voice with our readers, let me know by emailing Melanie.Graham@patch.com or by calling me at 617-733-1840.
