Put Patch to Work: Learn How to Post Events, Announcements and Blogs

Did we mention it's free?

Are you looking to get the word out about a community event or an accomplishment? Or maybe you’ve just got something on your mind. Brookhaven Patch can help.

Tired of making signs for your yard sale or bake sale by hand? Enter Patch Events. You can post events to the site for free. Navigate to the Events page and click “Add an Event” on the right side of the page. Tell us all the details about your upcoming event, then click “post my event” at the bottom of the page.

Patch pulls events from the calendar for postings like The Weekender. It’s a great way to let the community know what’s going on at your church, business or school.

Did you know you can post an announcement on Patch for free? The old days of paying a publication to publish a wedding announcement are history! Now you can tell the town when you get married, have a baby, graduate or make the honor roll.

Simply click the Announcement option under the News tab on the homepage. On the right side of the screen you’ll see the button “Add an Announcement.” This will you take you to Patch’s new announcement form. Once there, get your brag on and tell the community all about your son’s big Little League win or your civic club’s new members. When you’re ready, click “publish my announcement” and it will go live to the site immediately!

Patch editors sometimes features announcements with photos on the homepage and in the Brookhaven Patch daily newsletter.

Finally, we know from the comments on the site that the Brookhaven and Chamblee community has a lot to say. Sound off in a letter to the editor by clicking this link. It will navigate you to the new blog post form and you can write to your heart’s content. Got a question for your neighbors or a suggestion for the city? Maybe you want to rant about the future city council in Brookhaven or just remind people about the Brookhaven Farmers Market. Whatever your interest, we want to hear about it and odds are so do your neighbors.

Be sure to bookmark this page for future reference and as always feel to free email Patch Editor Kiri Walton at kiri.walton@patch.com if you have any questions.
