Almost two years ago, Patch launched a blog platform—sort of like an open community opinion page—and in that time we've gotten some fantastic contributors filling our Local Voices section, posting entries about everything from fun places in Mendota Heights to have a picnic, to real estate advice, to opinions of middle schoolers on the Vikings football team.
In addition to providing locally focused news coverage for Mendota Heights, we're looking for even more residents to host their own blog on the Mendota Heights Patch site.
For the most part, anything goes, if it's legal. We want bloggers to own their blogs. In fact, Mendota Heights Patch doesn't own the blog content that bloggers post, meaning authors can repost their stuff on other sites. (Note that those who blog on Mendota Heights Patch aren't paid.)
If you're already a prolific Mendota Heights blogger, or are passionate about anything (education, fishing, government, business, shopping, pets—literally, anything) and have a strong voice, then you should write a blog on the Mendota Heights Patch site.
