For this event, I decided to write about it for a local Patch instead and link to my article. I signed up to contribute to the hyper-local news outlet earlier this year. My main interest was to submit posts about various events I attend in the area. It wasn’t until the spring weather finally began to show that I had a better chance to get out there and create a story on festivals.
Check out my Spring Super Sunday post. Hope you enjoy it and I look forward to sharing more through Patch. Once I’ve built up enough stories there, I might create a new page on here with links to that work.
I’ll continue to post on here as well, especially since I love blogging about places beyond my local area. Writing on a news site is another platform on which I’d like to grow journalism work. Just as I do in my blogging, I enjoy putting together travel experiences and even inspire others to try this place or event. It may be local, yet unknown or simply missed by some residents one year or another. That’s happened to me many times and recently, in visiting a favorite state park. Whether from someone else or following my own interest, I have a new-to-me experience while enjoying a day out.
So, that’s why I’m spreading my work to Patch. I also hope to share travels in a literary form, submitting more stories to publications accepting the non-fiction genre of creative writing.
