Video: How to Create Your First Blog Post

Even the most experienced bloggers had to start some place.

Blogging on Alameda Patch (or any Patch site) is an effective way to reach a ready-made audience in your neighborhood, your city and beyond.

Blog posts that originate here are often syndicated to other Patch towns in Northern California. Some bloggers show their expertise, others show the impact their organizations have had in the community. Some just write fun posts.

Whatever the reason, each had to start somewhere. The accompanying video shows how to get started with your first post. It contains a lot of information, so pause as often as necessary.

We used a piece from Rich Grimm of Tsunami Skydivers in Oceanside, CA based on Camp Pendleton Patch.

You can start blogging now at http://alameda.patch.com/blog/apply.
