Why An Interview Blog?

A few people have asked me why I decided to start an interviewing blog, as opposed to a blog on writing or editing, since that’s my thing. Well, I am revamping my freelance writing business blog, but I plan on keeping it focused on just that. Plus there are a lot of writing and editing blogs out there. It is difficult to come up with a new, inventive way of saying something about writing that hasn’t already been said numerous different ways. I chose to start this blog mostly because I wanted to do something a little bit different. My interests are so wide-ranging and varied, I didn’t want to be relegated to only writing about writing.

Additionally, I really enjoy meeting and speaking with new people, so I thought it would be fun to have a blog to reflect that. I love to hear others’ stories about how they got where they are in life, what things they would do differently (if any), and what they have learned along the way.  I enjoy exchanging ideas with smart, creative, motivated people and learning something new in the process.

I’m not the only one who stands to reap the benefits, though. As a freelancer I know how costly and time-consuming it can be to market yourself. This blog can help with that in some small way. The professionals I interview can link back here from their own websites, blogs, and Twitter and Facebook pages and share their stories with a wider audience. As for my readers, my hope is that you will feel inspired by these individuals’ success stories. Their achievements, regrets, and helpful tips may prove beneficial to you, especially if you are also hoping to become your own boss.

So sign up and read along. Hopefully you’ll enjoy reading the interviews as much as I enjoy conducting them.

If there is a particular career field that interests you or a self-employed professional whose interview you would be interested in reading, shoot me a message via my Contact page.
