Three Really Easy Things to Do & How to Do Them

Bookmark this page when you're wondering how to post an event, announcement or blog to Lindenhurst Patch.

Would you like to post events, announcements and blogs to Lindenhurst Patch?

Keep this article handy each time there's something you'd like to share with the community.

To Post Events to the Site for Free
Navigate to the Events page and click Add an Event on the right side of the page. Include all of the details about your upcoming event, then click Post My Event at the bottom of the page.

That puts the event directly on our calendar. The end result is the same as if a Patch staffer had posted it for you.

The only difference is, when you post it, it goes up right away. If you send it to us, you might have to wait until we're done reporting on the school board meeting, photographing an event, meeting with community members or something else that we Patch editors are always doing.

To Post Announcements to the Site for Free
Simply click the Announcements option under the news tab on the home page. On the right side of the screen you’ll see the button Add an Announcement.

This'll you take you to Patch’s new announcement form. Once there tell the community all about your child's sports league win or your civic club’s new members.

When you’re ready, click Publish My Announcement, and it'll go live to the site immediately.

With just a few clicks you could tell the community when you get married, have a baby, graduate or make the honor roll.

You could also write a public thank-you, provide details about your group's upcoming event or ask for volunteers.

And we have a whole bunch of categories you can choose for your announcement; you'll see for yourself when you submit one.

For extra visibility, add a photo. In addition, if you e-mail the link to barbara.loehr@patch.com, we can help give you even more exposure.

To Blog
Simply click the Start a Blog button on our home page, click Post on Patch and fill out the required fields.

When done, hit Save and Preview, and then submit it to us.

At the chance you receive an error message - "Oops!" is one we see from time to time - just e-mail the editor at barbara.loehr@patch.com to see if we can see the blog on our end.

More likely than not, we'll see it in our queue and will be able to click Approve.

That's it. Easy, right? Just make sure you bookmark this page as a reference!
