In the past year and a half Northfield Patch has posted nearly 1,100 Local Voices—also called blogs—from more than 100 people.
Just think about that for a second.
Those are your neighbors, the parents of your child's friends and the people you see downtown all sharing news and information with one another on Northfield Patch. And it's beautiful. I've long said that the old broadcast format of news and information distribution are firmly in the past. Media in the 21st century is all about conversation. Won't you join us on this two-way street?
The Local Voices section is more free-wheeling than the Northfield Patch homepage and it is a place where readers can check out what local voices have to say about what's happening in the community. For the most part, anything that is legal, goes. We want the bloggers to own their blogs.
In fact, Northfield Patch does not own the blog content, meaning authors can repost their work on other sites. Bloggers are unpaid.
If you are passionate about anything in Northfield, whether it's education, fishing, government, business, art or buttons (literally, anything), are a prolific writer and have a strong voice, then you should participate on Northfield Patch's Local Voice section.
