Meet Joliet Patch Editors at Thursday Event
Joliet Patch is hosting a Main Street Meetup Thursday at the Black Road Branch of the Joliet Library to show you how to get the most out of our site.
We know you read Patch. You get your news every day in your email and breaking news alerts on your smart phones. We are your go-to site for local events and when you are looking for something to do with the kids on the weekend, you come to us for the breakdown.
But, there is so much more than that. Did you know that anyone in the community can sign up for a blog? There is no cost to do so and you can post about nearly anything you would like. Did you know that you can also post your garage sale? Not only that, but you can post your block party as well?
Many of you have found your way around our event section on your own, but did you know that not only can you post your time and place for your event, but you can upload photos and video and can ask friends to do the same.
Patch is a community site. We want each of you, our readers, to also be our users.
To that end, we are hosting a “Main Street Meet-up.” From 2 to 5 p.m., Thursday, we will be at the Joliet Public Library, Black Road Branch to show you how to get the most out of Patch.
We made this event kid-friendly, with a station for coloring, one for building Legos and one with Patch tattoos. We will have juice boxes for the kids and water and coffee for the adults.
We will have giveaways throughout the afternoon, and we hope to see you there.
