As we work to build a platform that best serves our users, a huge part of what keeps readers coming back is the connection they find with their communities.
We’re home to a diverse group of voices and offer a space for meaningful conversation from local, regional and national perspectives. In a nutshell: Patch is a gathering place to learn, ask and engage.
For Christine, writing for Patch is an experience that’s taught her the incredible power of community voices.
In her most recent post, Christine reflects on the last several years and expresses hopes for Patch moving forward.
From a column she wrote on the tragic shooting of a local high school freshman to installments about good-deed-doers, new businesses, schools, traffic problems, Christmas lights, off-leash dogs, homeless vets and the local university, her posts resonated with fellow readers.
“[Patch] encouraged me to widen my
path, meet more people, and learn skills I wouldn’t have otherwise,” she
writes. “I’ll always carry a heightened sense of community because I was a
journalist for Patch.”
