Patch Blogging: No Dissertation Required
Blogs don't have to be novels - or even paragraphs. Check our favorite bloggers who stray from the standard perception
You probably know Patch has a blogging feature that’s open to EVERY person in EVERY Patch town.
And I bet you’ve thought to yourself, man. It would be cool to reach thousands of people in my town for free and tell them about my fundraiser, share my favorite recipes or give them my point-by-point analysis of the Browns defense (or lack thereof). Or the 2012 elections. Or that new development proposal in your neighborhood.
But, you think, I’m just not a writer.
Well, here’s a secret bloggers all over northeast Ohio have discovered: you don’t have to be a writer.
Check out our favorite blogs that challenge the traditional format, and if you are inspired to reach your neighbors, just click the green button on our homepage.

A How-To: Eric Curts of North Canton blogs about family. In this post, he uses a clever photo slideshow to show readers a funny faces activity he did with his son (Hint: it involved post-its and a marker – with hilarious results!).
So you don’t write? Talk! Beachwood High School senior Jon Sender posts a podcast. Not tech-savvy? It’s just like a short radio show.
