There’s no doubt the media world as we knew it not long ago is morphing continuously right before our eyes.
We at Patch consider our hyper-local web-based platform to be yet another manifestation of this ongoing evolution of news and information distribution.
What's a blog?
Blogs, for some, are akin to online diaries. To others, blogs are manifestos of beliefs, political or otherwise. Some blogs are about hobbies, like baseball memorabilia collections or toy trains.
Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order and most blogs are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments. We also feature blogs all the time!
That pretty much sums it up and East Hampton-Portland Patch is welcoming anyone in the community to join our thriving blog community. We will provide you with your own personal blog space, which will be featured on our home page along with other bloggers we are currently recruiting.
To start a blog, just click on the link underneath the top four stories on the front page that says "Want to start a blog" and fill out the required fields. (There's another, bigger button further down the page that says "Want to blog on Patch?") When done, hit "save and preview" and then submit it to us. If by chance you receive an error message, ("oops!" is one we see from time to time), just email me at Eileen.McNamara@patch.com to see if I can view the blog on our end. More likely than not, we'll see it in our queue and will be able to click "approve."
You're welcome to blog as often as you like!
