Counting the Ways To Utilize Oak Creek Patch
Here's how you can get information out on the site.
Patch is proving that the information superhighway is in fact a two-way street. There are many ways for you to participate on Patch and share your own news with the community. All you need is a free Patch user name and password (or simply log in via Facebook), plus these handy directions.
Events: If your group or organization has a fundraiser, workshop, lecture or other public event, add it to the Patch Events Calendar. The process is very user-friendly. Include photos, videos and links. The item goes directly to the calendar without stopping at an editor.
Announcements: News of a job change or promotion, important public information or simply good news from your life can be shared on the Announcements page. The process is similar to posting Events, and every Announcement is part of the Patch Daily Email Newsletter.
Review: If you had a great experience — or less than great — at a local business, post a review on Patch Places. Give the business a rating between 1 and 5 stars and tell users why you did so!
Blog: Be an expert on the subject of your choosing, share and debate your political views or deliver commentary on local news with your own Patch blog. You decide how often and how long you write; Patch simply provides the outlet.
If you have any questions, simply email Editor Mark Schaaf and we'll fix you up. It’s just that easy!
