Did you know that blogging on Patch can help draw attention to the blog you already write elsewhere?
Wayland Patch is always on the lookout for new bloggers. But sometimes, that just means the blogger is new to Patch, not necessarily new to blogging. One of the hardest things about blogging is reaching an audience. It isn't easy to raise the visibility of your blog above that of the myriad of other blogs out there. But if you don't manage to do that, the time and energy you put into your blog might go unnoticed by the very readers you're trying to reach. That's where Wayland Patch can help. Patch wants to provide an additional platform for the blog you're already spending time to write. Here's how it works: - We'll set you up with a blog on Wayland Patch. It takes a few minutes on the front end to set up, but then it's up to you to blog …

We're looking for bloggers who can riff on various topics, share their personalities and engage our readers in discussions. Patch is more than a news site, it's an online conversation about your community. 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. My role as editor would be to review blog …
