Next week, the East Hampton Patch you know and love is getting an all-new look, and we are so excited to share it.
We’re introducing new features that will help you better connect with your neighbors and new tools that will help local merchants better reach customers.
Of course, we’ll still be covering the news that matters most to you, from the biggest stories in town to the smallest feats of local kindness.
Coming soon, Patch is putting neighbors and news on the same page - here’s how:
- It’s a fresh new take on the local news you love.
We redesigned East Hampton Patch from the inside out so you can find what you need faster and enjoy a smoother experience all around – at your desk, on your tablet or phone, and from your inbox.
- Now with more stories from East Hampton.
We’ve also added more local voices to the front page. Now, you have dedicated reporting from Patch, plus the latest know-how and opinion from neighborhood bloggers – all in one place.
- Introducing Boards – an easy new way to connect with East Hampton.
These super-simple message boards make it easy to communicate and make things happen as a neighborhood – whether you want to post a big announcement, sell something or just speak up.
- More to say? We’ve made it easier to start up your own blog, too.
Now you can start your own East Hampton Patch blog anytime, and become a local voice your neighbors can rely on. And for those of you who already blog with us, we’ve streamlined our tools so you can reach a bigger audience in fewer steps.
Join us in one week to experience these new and improved features for yourself. For a sneak peek, check out http://longbeach.patch.com and let us know what you think. You can also ask any questions — big or small — by emailing Regional Editor Henry Powderly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
