Your Adoption Connection: Adopted three siblings in 2003.
As you know, our forums are private, except for that one forum where people introduce themselves. Because of that, we rank quite low in the search engines (as opposed to the blog-which ranks quite high) and people have a hard time finding us. Also, because we're private, the google ads we use can't see all our keywords and we sometimes get ads that have nothing to do with adoption. I've been trying to think of a way to remedy that and I came up with something that might work.

I want to create a forum (an open one, like the Introduction forum) and add a few, maybe 6-10 articles, on various adoption topics and issues. Nothing to specific, more general in nature.

Some of the topics I thought of are:
1. What to consider before you adopt.
2. What to expect from a homestudy
3. Open adoption
4. Older child adoption/Adopting from foster care
5. Steps to International Adoption

These are just ideas, not specific ones I'm looking for. You can use these, or ones that you think on your own. They don't have to be very long...350-400 words is fine, unless you want to make it longer.

If you have a blog, business, forum, website or anything else you want to promote (doesn't have to be adoption related-just family friendly), you can add a byline, with the direct links, at the end of what you write. The only thing I ask is that the article is original, not copied from someplace else, and that you won't post it any place else.

I'm going to post this up on our blog and a few other adoption sites but honestly, I'd rather they come from our own members. I'll wait about a week to see if anybody is interested before I post it anyplace else. :pink

I want to take care of this off the board so if you're interested, PM me this week and let me know the title of your article/s. You can write more than one if you want.

Thanks! :smile

This sounds like a great way to get published!

I bet FPers have a lot of expertise on a variety of subjects.
