Holidays are Here! Share the Spirit of the Season on Patch

From your best holiday recipes and gift ideas, to special traditions you cherish with family and opportunities to give back, we want it all!

Written by Liz Kennedy

Especially during the holiday season, community contributions -- whether it’s sharing photos with Santa, family rituals or reflections of thanks -- is a hugely important part of Patch. 

Let your creativity work overtime and use Patch as your one-stop-shop to share, connect and grab tips and traditions from your neighbors and friends. 

You can start a blog, or post to our boards about anything you like. Really, the possibilities are endless.

  • Vintage photos, nostalgic photos
  • Favorite holiday songs
  • Reflections of thanks
  • Holiday wishes/resolutions

Because with value community voices, our platform allows users to interact and post directly to the site. These posts then appear on the homepage, in the daily newsletter and are shared by editors via Facebook and Twitter.

The best thing about sharing your stuff on Patch is it's your space so it's your rules. Write as frequently, or infrequently as you'd like. Short or long, essay style or a quick how-to. Blogging on Patch is a great way to share your opinions with the community and get your voice out there.

To get started, click "Blogs" in the main navigation bar above. Then, in the upper left-hand corner, click the "Start your own Blog" icon. You'll then be asked three things: to name your blog, to write a short description of the blog and to upload a thumbnail to appear on the account. Once you hit the "Create your blog" button, you'll be on your way to making your first blog post. It's that simple!
