Announcements (+ a Giveaway)

  • If you live anywhere near Ohio, I'm jealous that you live close enough to go to this event on November 13 with Brenda Romanchik marking the one-year anniversary of the Ohio Birthparent Group. The morning session is exclusively for birthparents and the afternoon is open to absolutely anyone. Ms. Romanchik is an open adoption advocate and pioneer (and author of those booklets Beth found so helpful during her pre-placement decision process). She is totally on my short list of folks I would love to hear speak in person. Of course it might be for the best that we live too far away to attend; Todd would probably end up rapping for her, too. But you shouldn't miss it!
    Adoption Bloggers Interview Project 2011
  • There is a new, crisp button option for the Adoption Bloggers Interview Project. You're welcome to swap yours out; code is here. Many thanks to Becca and her design skills for saving me from my graphic ineptitude.
  • Registration for the Interview Project closes on Friday. So hop on it if you haven't already! We're at 79 registrants as I write this.
  • We have lots of domestic (newborn) adoption bloggers from various corners of the internet signed up. I'd love to rope in some more international adoption and foster care bloggers. Remember, it's not just for open adoption bloggers this year! It's all about making connections with bloggers you might not normally read.

    So this week please spread the word about the Interview Project, especially among bloggers who might not have heard about it yet. Write about it on your blog or in forums you frequent. Share a link on Facebook/Twitter/Google+. Leave a comment on a friend's blog inviting them to participate.

    To sweeten the pot, I'm giving away a $25 Target gift card to someone who helps share the Project love. Leave a separate comment on this post with a link to your blog post/tweet/forum post/etc. pointing folks to the project. Leave as many comments as you'd like, as long as each one links to something different. Anything you've done to share since the project launched on October 12 is fine to enter, too. Giveaway closes on the 28th when registration ends; I will choose a comment at random by November 2. Further necessary but boring giveaway blather here.
