Looking for a Summer Activity? Blog on Lexington Patch!

Join our Local Voices and write on a topic of your choosing.

Lexington Patch is still in search of local bloggers, and we think you’d be perfect. (Yes, you!)

Think of it like writing a letter to the editor, as often as you want on any topic. Or like a conversation among friends and neighbors. Or as a way to share your expertise on whatever you’re skilled at. Everyone’s got something to say, and we’d love for you to say it on Lexington Patch.

Are you a recent graduate getting ready for that next adventure? Tell us about what it’s like to spend that last summer at home and how you’re preparing for college/work/military. (Then blog once you’ve reached that next place and share your experiences with friends and family back home.)

Do you teach yoga, know how to stretch a buck, play an instrument, dabble in photography, write poetry, make a mean chicken carbonara (or have the ability to pair it with the perfect wine), coach Little League, walk dogs, bake the perfect pie or have a crafty side? Share your talents in a blog on Patch—whether it’s a few photos of your handiwork with a short description, a how-to list or a story that will inspire others to follow suit.

Got a political opinion? Want to share your weekly sermon or an inspirational story? Just want to make us laugh? Blog!

Other Lexingtonians are already part of our Local Voices blogging community, like , who reflects on journeys through motherhood, and Eliza Florendo, a college student rediscovering her hometown the summer after her freshman year at Emerson. And then there's , the owner of , and , a METCO student who shared his experiences through the end of his junior year at LHS.

The great thing about blogging (a.k.a. writing for the Web) is that you can write in whatever style you choose, at any length, as often as you like. If you want to post something every day, do it. If you’re more of a weekly or every-other-week kind of blogger, that’s great, too. We want you all! 

Why is blogging so important to us? Lexington Patch is more than a place to catch up on daily news and find business information in our local directory (though we think we do a pretty good job with both). We are a community, and no community is complete without lots of conversation, give and take, information, questions, answers and simple “hellos." We’re Lexington online, and we—and your friends and neighbors—want to hear from you.

Interested? Send me an e-mail at Patrick.Ball@patch.com or give me a . I can’t wait to see what you have to say.
