Join Reston Patch with Your Own Blog

Patch is looking for more 'Local Voices' contributors.

Patch has room for a few more bloggers to join our Local Voices team.

We're looking for people who can riff on various topics, share their personality and engage our readers in discussions.

Patch is more than a community news and information site—it's an online conversation about your community.

  • Are you passionate about Reston's 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?

Then, we want to hear from you.

This is not 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.

My role as editor would be to review blog entries submitted to Patch to ensure quality. I may make small spelling, grammar and style changes to help your blog shine.  I might correct obvious typos, but I will not be editing them for content.

If you'd like to chat about the opportunity to share your unique voice with our readers, let us know by emailing Editor Karengoff at Kareng@patch.com.

Why is there now a singles ad at the top of stories? I know you need the ad revenue but it is so cheesy

Cindy - I hear you. The good news it is only on the mobile version. But I will pass your thoughts on to the ad people.
