Hyattsville Patch Seeks Local Bloggers

Got something to say? Patch is adding a platform for local bloggers in May.

You've commented on our stories, so why not blog on our site?

Beginning in May, Hyattsville 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 environmental, crime or development 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 Hyattsville Patch to ensure quality. I may make small spelling, grammar and style changes to help your blog shine.

If you'd like to chat about the opportunity to share your unique voice with our readers, let me know by emailing sarahn@patch.com or by calling me at 301-915-6577.

I would love the opportunity to begin blogging for the patch. I am currently living in Hyattsville and would like to inform our community of entertainment and dining options that are in the area.
