So even if you think you know how to use Patch like a pro, we've got a few tips to make sure you are getting as much out of us as you can.
Here are 10 ways you can use Campbell Patch to stay informed and inform others.
1. Know before you go.
Wonder if traffic is backed up on Highway 9? Or where you should fill the gas tank before you hit the road? Always check our Commute section before you get stuck in a jam.
2. Add photos any time you like.
Our Pics and Clips at the top of the page is growing with every upload you and your neighbors make. Have great shots from the game last night, or wildlife spotted around the Los Gatos mountains? Now you can share it with everyone else in town—and an easy spot for your family to find it.
3. Tell neighbors about a great shopping or dining experience.
Who better to trust with a review of a business than a neighbor? You can rate businesses—good or bad—by going to their Directory page in the navigational bar above, and sharing your thoughts.
4. Share an opinion.
Comment on stories, add to the conversation. What you think matters, so tell the rest of us what is on your mind.
5. Let us know about a great story.
Did you attend a fantastic PTA event or an exciting game? Email us a write-up and a picture or two and we may post it on Campbell Patch.
Want to share on a regular basis? Show off your expertise and become a go-to source by becoming a Local Voices blogger. Let us know your idea and we'll set you up right away.
7. Post announcements for free.
The old days of paying a publication to publish a wedding announcement or an obituary are history! Now you can tell the town when you get married, have lost a loved one, have a baby, graduate or make the honor roll.
8. Give us a piece of your mind.
Thank someone or let us know what you think of a topic by submitting a Letter to the Editor via email that we'll publish on the site.
