Cat Blogger Auditions
Yes, we are making some changes in the way we handle cat blogger interviews and we're holding auditions for cat bloggers. Don't panic if you can't quilt or play the trumpet. These aren't real auditions. We're just going to give readers a chance to become more involved in which bloggers we interview. So far, our system has generally been ... well, strange. We'd like to interview all the bloggers and don't want to be biased, so we've been mainly picking them at random from our bookmark list.
Despite months of juggling several prospects at a time, things happen beyond our control (and those being interviewed) and the unthinkable happened. Last week none of our prospects responded and we didn't have an interview to publish. This week we had one but this was an inconvenient week (for them) to publish.
So here we are again without an interview to post. And this is why we came up with the idea to hold a casting call, which basically just means we are offering more reader participation.
We have several upcoming bloggers at various stages of the interview process - anywhere from delayed because of personal circumstances to only just accepted.
