We may not know each other, but I want to get to know you.
Yes, it's all about you, the Patch user who finds that his or her passion lives here on St. Pete Patch.
I'm Charles Schelle, who is taking the role of the Audience Engagement Editor to help you find exciting ways to use our site, highlight your awesome submissions to Patch and if something goes awry with the system, I'm here to help, too. We're trying something new to see how the community responds.
Don't worry—St. Pete Patch Editor William Mansell isn't going anywhere. He is still covering government, schools and countywide issues. You will also see Gulfport Patch Editor Cherlene Willis on St. Pete Patch, too.
I invite you to come say hello and catch me up on all things St. Pete. I'll also be available to show you how to blog on the site, post your calendar events, upload photos and help community organizations and businesses get their message out using Patch.
Meet me from 10 to noon Thursday, Feb. 7 at Starbucks, corner of 4th St North and 8th Avenue.
Let Patch save you time. Get great local stories like this delivered right to your inbox or smartphone everyday with our free newsletter. Simple, fast sign-up here.
Can't make it? I'm available to meet you one-on-one, and I can also host a Web meeting via Join.Me to visually walk you through the site or to help resolve most issues. You can also reach me at 941-525-3192 or e-mail email@example.com.
Or follow me on Twitter @ImYourChuck where I will spout nonsense throughout the day sprinkled with some relevant information.
I'll be in other nearby Patch towns this week, too.
Stay tuned for some exciting new features coming soon to St. Pete Patch.
Until then, tell me in the comments below about the coolest thing about St. Pete I should know or go see. (I'm driving up from Sarasota Patch.)
