St. Peters Patch is looking for local voices to join the team.
Beginning May 4, St. Peters 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 the issues in St. Peters?
- 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?
If you answered yes to any one of these questions, 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—that could be once a day, once a week or even once a month.
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 St. Peters Patch to ensure there are no libelous claims. I might correct obvious typos, too. That's about it. You have freedom to write what you want—as long as it's in good taste.
If you'd like to chat about the opportunity to share your unique voice with our readers, let me know by emailing joe.barker(at)patch(dot)com or by calling me at 636-575-9390.
