Looking for Fathers Day gift ideas? Well here's a new one — how about giving dad some Internet fame?
You know he's the world's greatest, but until now spreading the word has been limited to how many people might see a coffee mug, a barbecue apron, maybe a t-shirt.
But this is the 21st century. There's no longer any reason to hide dad's light of awesomeness under the bushel of novelty drinking vessels and sportswear.
Imagine his surprise Fathers Day morning (which is Sunday June 17, by the way) when you hand him a laptop, smartphone or tablet and show him the glowing article you've written about him on Patch.
It's fun, free and easy to do too — just follow these instructions:
- If you don't already have a Patch account you can join here.
- Once that's done, come back to this page and register for your own Patch blog here.
- From there select "Post on Patch" and you're ready to start blogging. You can even add photos and videos.
Just remember that if dad's a Patch reader too you may want to wait until the night before to upload your testimony to dad's greatness.
And you can use your blog any time you like to write about anything happening in your neighborhood.
It really is a gift that keeps on giving.
