Well wouldn’t ya know – we’re down to the final 6 of the social category of the Brilliance in Blogging awards (BIBs)!
How chuffed are we? Well, we only launched The Adoption Social a year ago, so we’re really proud to have been recognised in this way. Even if we don’t win, it’s a massive achievement for us to get this far, and it’s not just us of course, it’s all of you who contribute to The Adoption Social, and all of you who read and comment on the other bloggers that join in with us and our activities. So keep your fingers crossed, because if we win, then so do you!
Now on that note, we need more of you to join in, not with #WASO or our other linkys – #MemoryBox etc, although if you don’t already take part in those, please do, it’s as simple as copying and pasting a link into a form.
What we need now, is to keep the momentum going, keep the support there, keep the site full – and that’s where you come in. We are looking for posts and content on the following:
The Blog – any content you like. Anonymous or in your name. A poem, a post, a rant, a campaign, an information piece. If you’re an organisation, we might be able to showcase you here too.
Tips and Advice – parenting, social media, or anything you do that could help others. Maybe you could share a piece about what’s involved in an adoption preparation course, what it’s like attending a CAMHS appointment, how to get in touch with Post Adoption Support, where to find blogging inspiration, how to edit a photo, or even how to avoid the toy/sweet aisles in the supermarket. If you have something to share, then this is the place for it.
The Review – any reviews you have written – a book, a course, a tv programme or product. Send it to us for publication. We also regularly receive books for review, if you’d like to join in and receive books for free in turn for an honest review, then let us know.
So that’s it – problems, reviews, tips and one-off pieces. Not much really, but your knowledge will help others experiencing the same problems, and your questions will help others too worried to ask those questions.
