We Want Want You — To Blog

Cheshire Patch is looking for bloggers to showcase their work, expertise, ideas, tips, commentary — or just about anything you might have a passion about!

We Want Want You — To Blog


There’s no doubt that 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 is 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.

Wikipedia defines a blog as a blend of the terms “web” and “log” and “is a type of website or part of a web site." Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, description of events or other material such as graphics or video.

Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order and most blogs are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments.

That pretty much sums it up and Cheshire Patch is welcoming anyone in the community to join our fledgling blog community, called Local Voices. 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.

Share Your Passion, Ideas

Are you passionate about something in? Contact us! Whether it's food, family, schools, government, business, social issues, exercise, fashion, real estate or business — if it's your thing, we'd like you to consider blogging for Patch. Anyone may apply.

And if you already have a blog, post it here to attract even more readers.

Don't Be Shy!

I am specifically interested in talking with:

  • Musicians, Live Music Fans, Audiophiles and Artists
  • Parents, High School Students, Teachers and Professors
  • Bartenders, Baristas and Foodies
  • Fashion Experts, Stylists and Crafters
  • Volunteers and Nonprofit Workers
  • Health and Fitness Experts
  • Local Sports Fans

Don't be shy! Cheshire Branford Patch is on a mission to recruit fresh voices, and this is a great opportunity to make your voice heard. We want to hear what you have to say.

Lively Forum

It promises to be a lively forum for local debate, information and maybe some fun. And like other forums of this type, it is unpaid. However, each blogger will retain the rights to any material he or she creates, and there are no deadlines, no editing of blogs nor other requirements other than courtesy, decorum and respect be observed at all times.

In return, we offer you our extensive platform — part of the AOL/Huffington Post community, where your work will have wide distribution and be accessible from anywhere Internet service can be secured.

If you're interested in blogging for Cheshire Patch, email leslie.hutchinson@patch.com.
