Is your dream to become a best-selling author? Do you love to write murder mysteries, poetry, children's stories and/or historical fiction? Then you need to blog on Patch! 

Blogging (writing) on Patch will get your creative juices flowing! You'll have the chance to be published and gain a following! It's every writer's dream. 

Here's how to get started:

Just sign up first (or sign in if you are already signed up) on the Ridgefield Patch. Click on this link to start a new blog.

Here are some helpful hints when blogging:
  1. If you are writing a novel or short story, break your piece into small sections and post them individually. Short and sweet is better. Just make sure you let your readers know "this is part 6 of 10," etc. 
  2. You can write whenever you want and post whenever you want. You don't need to go through an editor to blog.
  3. The blogging platform allows you to post a photo to help tell your story.
  4. Editors and other Patch staff do not edit your blogs, so if you see a typo, you can easily change it yourself.
