Host Your Own Blog—For Free—on Lakeville Patch

Passionate about a certain hobby, or about issues in Lakeville? Have an engaging writing voice? Already a prolific blogger? These things and more would make you perfect to blog on Lakeville Patch.

Host Your Own Blog—For Free—on Lakeville Patch Host Your Own Blog—For Free—on Lakeville Patch

Almost two years ago, Patch launched a blog platform—sort of like an open community opinion page—and in that time we've gotten some fantastic contributors  filling our Local Voices section, posting entries about everything from fun places in Lakeville to have a picnick, to real estate advice, to opinions of middle schoolers on the Vikings football team.

In addition to providing locally focused news coverage for Lakeville, we're looking for even more residents to host their own blog on the Lakeville Patch site.

For the most part, anything goes, if it's legal. We want bloggers to own their blogs. In fact, Lakeville Patch doesn't own the blog content that bloggers post, meaning authors can repost their stuff on other sites. (Note that those who blog on Lakeville Patch aren't paid.)

If you're already a prolific Lakeville blogger, or are passionate about anything (education, fishing, government, business, shopping, pets—literally, anything) and have a strong voice, then you should write a blog on the Lakeville Patch site.

Please  visit this page to send me a little more about yourself and your blogging interest. Or email me at  derrick.williams@patch.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
