tips and tricks

Monday, January 19, 2009

I'm doing it. I'm starting Adoption DIY.

I've decided its something I enjoy, why shouldn't I try to help other people in their international adoption journey?
Soooo...with that being said, I need your help. (I'm always needing your help aren't I?)
I need your tips and tricks to help others complete their adoptions.
Are there any little things you learned along your journey that could help make someone else's easier? Any tricks to getting that dossier done? Any tips on ways to take some of the headache out of the process?
If so, let me know.
I also need your help in passing the word.
Could you grab the button off of the DIY site and place it on your blog? There is a easy to copy code there that will produce our cute little pink button once its placed on your sidebar.
Since I have a limited advertising budget (as in...ZERO!), word of mouth is going to have to do.
And if you're interested in helping out with Adoption DIY let me know. I'm not sure how I'm going to handle contributing writers right now, but I do know this - I can't do this on my own.
So if you have a heart for helping other families in their adoption process, get your typing fingers ready.
We've got a blog to write! :)

what i would like to know is how is this website going to make you money, or are you just doing it to help people? if it is the latter that is great if it is for money i guess i don't understand how that works can you explain it to me.

I'm mainly in it to help people. I've always loved helping answer people's questions about international adoptions...and doing what I can to help alleviate their nervousness about international adoption.
I will more than likely end up attaching advertising to it at some point to see if it works. If not, that's fine. It will give me a lot of personal satisfaction just to help bring some other awesome kids home!

Tami, I am so proud of you! Follow your heart and the Lord will bless! I'm adding the button to my blog now!

What does DIY stand for??

Tami January 19, 2009 at 8:52 PM  

DIY is an acronym for 'Do It Yourself.' Its usually used with home-improvement kind of things, but I think it shows that anyone can adopt. It just takes a little know how.

Well, I can't provide any tips or advice. But I can provide moral support! I'll be the cheering section: gimme a D! gimme an I! gimme Y! Adoption DIY! Good luck with it. :)

Count me in! I'll gladly contribute whatever you like. :) Of course, my experience is pretty limited--only one country, but still, that should count for something, right?

I've added your button to our blog, and will be glad to help in any way I can!

Go you! I'll put the button on my blog. I'm not sure if I can be helful in any other way, but if I can I'd be happy to help.

I saw that button on someones blog and wondered! I have some tips. Hopefully I'll remember to send them along. Right now my children are giving me the tip that they need to eat dinner!

I've heard from someone, I can't remember who, though, who said they included a little scrap book page of their family in hopes that when the people processing the paperwork would smile and hurry it along. It sounds like a good idea to me =)
