The Virginia-Highland/Druid Hills Patch is looking for local bloggers on the site.
We want people 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 schools or crime or community 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.
There's no pay, but 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. In fact, some of your posts could land on HuffPo, which would put them in front of a huge audience.
Be interesting. Be provocative. Be yourself.
My role as editor would be to review blog entries submitted to Virginia-Highland/Druid Hills Patch Patch to ensure there's nothing libelous. I will correct obvious typos, too. But I won't try to change your voice or put you through rewrite.
It's easy to get started. You don't have to consult with me unless you want to. Just click on vahi.patch.com/blog/apply. If you hit a snag in loading your blog, give me a call.
If you'd like to chat about the opportunity to share your unique voice with our readers, let me know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling me at 404-216-7238.
