While some slackers lie on the beach this summer, the rest of us are gearing up for November. If you've got something to say about national or local politics, Patch can make you a star. Well, we can at least give you a platform. The celebrity part is mostly up to you.
Westminster and Eldersburg Patches are the home of all your favorite news and information in Carroll County, and we also feature the best opinionated voices around. Why shouldn't yours be one of them?
We're looking specifically right now for the politically engaged. Whether it's through being a regular voter, a political junkie or political strategist, we welcome bloggers of all political stripes. If you're a politician, we're an equal opportunity blog platform, so you're invited as well. See an opponent on our site? Weigh in. Start your own blog!
Our Local Voices bloggers can write daily, weekly or monthly on a topic of choice. 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.
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. Patch is providing local bloggers an online platform to have their words seen by a larger audience.
Be interesting. Be provocative. Be yourself.
