Make Blogging on Patch a New Year's Resolution

If one of your New Year's resolutions is to write more, inspire others and get active in your community, Patch has a great platform for you.

Bonney Lake and Sumner are both diverse communities, and we want Patch to reflect that truth. That's why we're sending out the call for you to join our Local Voices section.

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 the Bonney Lake and Sumner area - and we can't have the conversation without you!

  • Are you a community organizer...or someone new to the neighborhood?
  • Are you an expert craftsman or hobbyist who can share do-it-yourself tips?
  • Are you an enthusiastic gardener? A daring baker?
  • Is hiking your passion, or photography?
  • Want to start an online book club?
  • Do you often attend school events or volunteer in a PTSA?
  • Do you have strong opinions about local government?
  • Can you just make us all laugh?
  • Are you a poet?

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 Bonney Lake and Sumner 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, please feel free to email me at lauren.padgett@patch.com.
