Adoption Bloggers Interview Project

Interview Day is here! Check out the 100+ interviews!

Welcome to the 2012 Adoption Bloggers Interview Project!

How does it work?

The Interview Project pairs up adoption bloggers for personal, individualized interviews. This will be the third time we've gathered together to share our stories and share our blogs. You can browse the 2010 interview pairs and the 2011 interview pairs to get an idea of the (amazing) end results.

The Interview Project is open to any individual blogger who
  1. writes at least occasionally about adoption,
  2. is interested in meeting a fellow writer with different views and experiences, and
  3. wants to welcome someone into their own online space.
Use the registration form (lower down on this page) to sign up by Thursday, October 18. You will be paired with another blogger and have about three weeks to acquaint yourself with their blog and exchange questions. Interview posts go up on Wednesday, November 14.

Pairing will be random, with a caveat. When you sign up, you'll have the chance to let me know about any special requests. For instance, maybe you're a first parent who wants to be paired with another first parent blogger. If the first blog that pops up randomly doesn't fit your criteria, I'll spin the virtual wheel until I can match you with a blog which does (as best I can).

Questions? Please feel free to email me.
