Do you have news about your business, neighborhood, school or club that you want to share. Have issues that are important to you?
Anyone can start a blog, post an announcement or an event to share with the community.
Want to invite the public to your events? Post events and your items will show up in our Renton Events Calendar. If something changes, you always can edit your own event to reflect the latest information. Learn more: How to post an event on Renton Patch. You can also check out the video attached to this story for more information.
Did someone in your family, business or organization get an award? Is your organization giving away scholarships? Got more information that might be useful for the community to know? Try our announcements section.
Many of the announcements get chosen for featuring in our regular news column as well, so it's one of the easiest ways to spread your news.
You can also use announcements to call attention to your events. It's a good idea to post both an announcement and a calendar item to draw attention to your event, especially if it's something that needs pre-registration.
Got more to say? Want to start a conversation? Post a blog!
You can post your own opinions with our blogging platform here on Patch. It's easy to start: just go to http://Renton.patch.com/blog
Many blog posts are featured in the Local Voices section of Patch, for everyone in the community to find.
You can blog as often as you like. There's no need to "pitch" ideas before submitting posts. And you retain all rights to your work, so you can crosspost information from your own website or your previously written blog. You can load your own photos and video and it's easy to link to other websites, including news articles, blog posts or websites that you'd like to share.
