Our aim is that The Adoption Social is created and led by those in adoption and those experiencing and living with adoption in their lives. We therefore need you to write for us, contribute your experiences and knowledge so that we can pass that on to others and they in turn can support, understand and help you and many more.
The sections in which we are looking for contributions are
Handy Tips and Advice – From parenting tips, to tips on getting through the adoption process, to understanding school application forms. If you have recently done any of these things, chances are, someone else will be going through it too – so share your knowledge and help others.
The Blog (formerly Blogless Blogging) – This section provides a space for anonymous posts from bloggers who don’t feel able to post on their own sites, one-off guest posts or those wishing to try their hand at blogging. Just send us an email with the text you want to share, and let us know whether you want to be anonymous or not.
Me & My Blog/My Twitter Life – Occasional posts from others already using social media; sharing tips, advice and experience.
Meet the Blogger – If you blog about adoption, then please do contact us for a list of questions (interview style) that you can choose from, and we’ll feature you in our Meet the Blogger section.
A Problem Shared – A spot where people can put forward a particular problem or issue, and others can comment or share experiences and advice.
The Review – Have you been on a great course? Read an interesting book? Or perhaps seen a programme or film that features adoption? If so, why not write a review and we’ll publish it online. We welcome ALL honest reviews.
The Weekly Adoption Shout Out – Each Friday bloggers are invited to link up their adoption posts from the week and every second week an optional topic is given to provide inspiration.
What’s in it for you?
We’ll happily add regular contributors to our Contributors Page. This means more people will get to hear about you. And we’ll promote your posts on our Twitter feed, Facebook and Pinterest pages too. We’ll also add you to our Twitter and Blog rolls too so you’ll be featured on the main front page of The Adoption Social. And hopefully, you’ll get a warm fuzzy feeling from sharing your experiences and supporting other people too.
We would also like to encourage people to contact us with any ideas of things they’d like to see on the site, topics to cover or new sections to add. If there is something you want to say but not sure where it might fit in please don’t hesitate in contacting us, we would love to hear your ideas.
