Blog on Patch. It's Really Pretty Easy

Say what you want when you want to say it on Patch.

Blog on Barrington Patch. You've got a lot to say. Or at least a little bit. And it's really easy to share your thoughts with the community.

How to blog

You must be a member. Are you already a member? If so, sign in and skip ahead.

If not, it's free and easy to join. Look for the “Sign In” button on the upper right hand corner of the home page. You've got to sign in or start an account.

To start a blog, then, simply scroll down to the “News & Blogs” section until you see a box titled “Who’s Blogging.”  Inside that box you will see a green button that is labeled "+ Start blogging"  Click the green “start blogging” button and you will be taken to a page that says “start a blog.”

Choose an appropriate title for the blog. The title is NOT a headline. It is an umbrella tag line for all your posts.

Once you have a title, create a description for your blog and fill it into the template. The description will appear under the title on all of your blogs. 

Finally, upload an image. Perhaps a picture of yourself? If you don't have a custom graphic, select one of our ready-made icons for your blog. You can always change it later.

Once you have done all that, choose the green "Create your blog" button at the bottom right of the screen. Clicking the green button will take you to a page where you can type your first blog entry. Click inside the box that says "Write a new post.”

That's about it. Not hard at all.

But keep this article handy each time there is something you'd like to share with Barrington.
