Blog on Commack Patch

Got something to say? Patch.com is adding a platform for local bloggers on May 4.

Beginning May 4, Commack Patch will be making room for local bloggers on the site.

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 your community.

  • Are you passionate about Commack's core 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.

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.

If you'd like to chat about the opportunity to share your unique voice with our readers, let me know by emailing kaitlyn.piccoli@patch.com or by calling me at 631-252-2361.

Geek! Kathy...you should know that writing in all capitals is like yelling. Also, as a teacher, did you even proof your work? Scary stuff!

Kaitlyn. Her name is Kaitlyn. Not Kathy. You expect to be 'hired' by this person yet you can't be bothered to get her name right. That speaks volumes. That's Job Interview 101. Get the name of the boss right! Honestly, this blogging idea sounds great and I'm looking forward to this new feature. Love to hear some fresh, new opinions!
