Hey, if you work for a major, nationwide company and your big boss comes into town, I would snap a picture of that, too.
So why not take a photo with , editor-in-chief of all of the country's 850-plus Patch.com sites? We're up to 22 states plus the District of Columbia. Can you imagine covering that city from a hyper-local perspective? What's NOT local in Washington?
I got to sit next to Brian while dining at Thursday and hear how the recent roll-out of Patches went in the first primary states, Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina (great, by the way).
And Brian asked me what I am doing to try to cover sports (while also covering the city, schools, business, features, etc.). I tried to clone myself, but that didn't work.
So I told him how I've been utilizing booster parents to feed me texts during the games, which I then turn into stories. We've experimented with this concept for several .
He liked the idea, and I do, too. Where else are you going to read not only how the varsity team did, but the JV and frosh/soph squads, too?
If you'd like to get your child's high school sport covered, email me at the address in the top banner.
But don't get mad if I don't get back to you right away. I'm off to New York for a week, where I will be officially deputized as your local editor. Coincidentally, it's also Fashion Week next week. I'll let you know if I manage to crash a show.
Ciao for now!
