We're looking for Saucon Valley residents, volunteers and business owners to blog on Patch. Blogging on Patch is free, easy, and a great way to get the word out fast!
Have you ever thought about blogging and thought, "nah." Is it because you feel you don't have anything to say? You probably do, but you just don't know it! Traditional blogging involves the sharing of strong opinions, but on Patch you don't have to have an opinion to blog (although having one doesn't hurt either). For example, if you're a member of a local civic group or organization you can blog about your group's upcoming activities, share photos, etc. You can even put out a call for volunteers or new members. If you're a local business owner, you can share tips and advice related to the products you sell or the services you offer. For example, if you're a realtor, you can write about local trends in real estate for buyers and sellers. …

Today we launch a great new chapter for Patch.com, the national network of hyperlocal sites currently covering community life in 800 towns across America.
When Kenny Lerer and I started The Huffington Post on May 9, 2005, we would have been hard-pressed to imagine this moment. With The Huffington Post, the idea was to take the sort of conversations found around dinner tables and at book parties–about politics and books and art and music and food and sex–and put them online, open them up, and invite interesting people to participate, creating a one-stop site for news and opinion with an attitude, in real-time. Our merger with AOL, Patch's parent company, in February, allowed us to broadcast those conversations to a much wider audience. By combining The Huffington Post's attitude, journalistic acumen, and sheer energy with AOL's resources and technical expertise, we were able, as we say, to …

Beginning May 4, Hellertown-Lower Saucon Patch will be making room for local bloggers on the site, and it's free. We're looking for bloggers who can riff on various topics, share their personalities and engage our readers in discussions. Patch is more than a news site.
