The aim of this interview series is to shine a light on the amazing variety that exists in life. I have had the fortune of meeting some incredible people in my time; some with incredible skills, quirky hobbies or unique professions. Each one of them have a story to tell about how they got to where they are now and the hobby and profession interview series is designed to share their experiences to help others find their own path.
About taking part
Anyone can volunteer for an interview! Please do not worry about seeming interesting, or having a super unique skill or profession. Every single person is unique in one way or another, as is their journey and how you got to where you are may just be the right inspiration for someone else out there. While Just Geeking By is a geeky lifestyle blog all hobbies and professions are welcome because life comes in all shapes and sizes! You’re absolutely welcome to contact me and have a chat if you’re not sure about taking part 🙂
If you do want to take part then please be aware of these few requirements:
- I want people to feel as comfortable as possible with the interview process, however, please try to complete all of the questions. If you feel uncomfortable/finding it difficult to answer a question then may skip a total of two questions if necessary. If you feel the need to skip any more then I would suggest that this is not the interview for you.
- I require four photos/images to accompany the article, one of which is a photo that represents yourself. This can be a logo, a photo of yourself or a professional head shot. This is needed for the header image of the article as seen here.
- If you are happy with these requirements then please head over to sign up form and fill it in!
I use the same set of questions for each interview and they are as follows:
Hi …. please tell us a bit about yourself!
How did you get into [insert interest/work] ?
How many years have you been doing it?
What does your [insert interest/work] mean to you?
What was the first time you realised that was what you wanted to do?
What is your proudest moment?
What was the first [product/artwork] you ever sold?
What are your goals for the future? What do you hope to achieve?
What was the best advice you were ever given?
Any advice for others wanting to get into your [field/hobby]?
Now for some random questions…
If you were the god/goddess of anything, what would it be?
What would your animal form be?
Do you have any fun quirks?
Do you collect anything?
And finally; time for a shameless plug: (You can use this to plug websites, online stores or social media accounts of your own, or a community/charity you want to highlight.)
