Patch's Local Voices is a place for local people to blog about their expertise, voice an opinion, update the community on their club, organization or sports team's events, or write about just about anything else.
You can use it to position yourself as an expert in your field.
You can use it to gain a wider audience to your existing blog.
You can use it as a creative outlet.
You retain all rights to your copy, which you can use again on other blogs.
You can post as often or as little as you like (more often is better). You can link to other blogs and articles. You can talk about whatever you want to talk about.
A few rules to follow:
- Use a real name. It can be your brand name. Your business name. Your maiden name. But it has to be your name, not someone else's.
- No overt solicitation of business. This is not a paid ad. It should not be written like one. But you can obviously include the name of your business or organization.
- No plagiarism or copyright infringements. Do not copy and paste another person's work. Do not use someone else's photos without written permission.
