Woonsocket Patch is teaming up with neighboring Patch sites to . Here's what to expect and how to join in:
- You should see a headline on a story that has the words "Live Blog" in it; that will have a window at the top of the story page. In that window, you will see posts from Rhode Island Patches and editors, plus Irene tweets, polls, photos, even video.
- The window is self-refreshing, so you don't need to reload the page to stay on top of the latest. As soon as there is a new post, you will hear an audio notification — the sound of typing on a keyboard. You can turn these features off by clicking the speaker or circular button next to it.
- Contribute! Comment; tell us what's happening in your neighborhood, vote on the polls, post a photo. Tell us how you're weathering in the storm. Have a question, or a tip? Post it! The storm is as much an experience for us as it is for you. All you have to do is type in a name (real names, please) your comment, and attach any photos with the paperclip icon. We will post another story soon with more details of how to contribute; especially how to post from your mobile phone.
Email video to firstname.lastname@example.org. If it's too large, let me know and we can arrange something.
