Patch is seeking fashion experts to contribute to our blogging platform and help educate the masses on the right shoes to wear with that pencil skirt, next season's top color trends and more.
We would love for owners or employees of local boutiques to post an "Outfit of the Week," or for a savvy consumer to keep us up-to-date on the latest trends with regular posts on what's happening in the fashion world. If you love to photograph fashion, you can showcase that passion as well.
Part of the Patch mission is to strengthen communities and improve the lives of their residents, but we can't do it without you. Our blog section allows members of the community—from cooking enthusiasts to local politicians and everyone in between—to interact and post directly to the site. These posts then appear on the homepage, in the daily newsletter and are shared by editors via Facebook and Twitter.
The best thing about sharing your stuff on Patch is it's your space so it's your rules. Write as frequently, or infrequently as you'd like. Short or long, essay style or a quick how-to. Blogging on Patch is a great way to share your opinions with the community and get your voice out there.
To get started, click "Blogs" in the main navigation bar above. Then, in the upper left-hand corner, click the "Start your own Blog" icon. You'll then be asked three things: to name your blog, to write a short description of the blog and to upload a thumbnail to appear on the account. Once you hit the "Create your blog" button, you'll be on your way to making your first blog post. It's that simple!
