Welcome to our brand new site – The Adoption Social, the new home of the Weekly Adoption Shout Out.
We’re Vicki and Sarah, and we’re UK-based adoptive mums who run our own blogs and tweet, quite a lot! We met online, and we’re also part of a growing online community of people involved with and interested in adoption. We aren’t experts in adoption or social media. But we have used social media to connect and become friends. And we recognise how much support is out there, especially when you feel isolated at home and the internet is one of your only ways of connecting to other people.
Initially to showcase and bring together other blogs about adoption, we developed The Weekly Adoption Shout Out – a linky that bloggers join in with. But we’ve been so pleased with how successful and supportive the Weekly Adoption Shout Out has become, we decided to build a whole new site!
The Adoption Social will become full of information and posts about adoption and social media, and how it can really pull a community of people together – just like The Weekly Adoption Shout Out has done.
We hope that this site will become a useful and supportive place for adoptive parents, adopted people, prospective adoptive parents and those involved in adoption.
The Adoption Social promotes social media resources such as Twitter, blogging, Facebook and even Instagram as tools to help people connect with each other.
We hope to share information about how to set up accounts and use any of these social media sites, and with first hand experience of how we’ve connected, we hope that more people will begin to realise the benefits.
So, have a look around, check out the sections at the top there. Some of the sections already have posts in – well we couldn’t launch a new site without anything on it could we? Each section will be updated regularly, but to do
We Need You!
So, if you have a problem you want some advice on or have a post in you that you don’t want on your own blog, maybe you want to try your hand at a blog post before you start your own, perhaps you fancy writing a little something about why you love to tweet, or if your child has done something worth celebrating then let us know. Take part! You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
