Patch will soon have a brand-new design and a whole new way to connect.
Hi, everyone! I have some exciting news to share about Patch—we’re getting a whole new look! It’s coming next week and it’s going to make Richfield Patch easier to use, and a better place to connect and share. The best part? You’ll be able to see it all on your mobile phone! Here’s what you need to know: We’re including more great stories from your neighbors, right on the homepage. So you’ll have all of our local reporting, plus the latest know-how and opinion from local bloggers. We’re adding Boards to make it easier for you to connect with each other, debate an issue or announce your garage sale, graduation or find a lost pet. More to say? It will be easier to start your own blog, too. You’ll soon be able to start your own blog anytime…
