Here’s a reminder that the blog has a new section, called The Commons. The Commons is here to make it easy for community members to submit content to the blog. Reviews, news, features, interviews, news tips and more are welcome. (Photos, for now, have to get here by email.) See the sidebar for a list of Commons articles.
All you have to do is go to the “Write For The BHB” link in the top menu (or just click this) and write your content in there.
Once approved (it’s moderated, but just to keep out spammers), your content goes live on the Commons where it can be read and discussed by community members. Some Commons articles will be promoted to the main BHB page (and moved out of the Commons section). Recent Commons posts are listed in the right-hand column of all pages on the Beacon Hill Blog.
Try it out and see how you can easily contribute to your neighborhood blog in The Commons! If you’re thinking of posting a neighborhood event on Facebook or the mailing list, think about posting it here too.
(Your editor is out of town for a bit so blog content has slowed down until I get back — but I’m keeping up with all the Commons posts that come in, so feel free to submit posts!)
