#WASO

or The Weekly Adoption Shout Out, as it's otherwise known.

Started back in January 2013, the Weekly Adoption Shout Out is a linky co-hosted by myself on The Boy's Behaviour, and by Sarah, over at The Puffin Diaries. The aim of the shout-out has always been to bring together blogs about adoption to share posts and discover new blogs. But as it's become more popular, we've discovered that people are really coming together through #WASO, and are interacting more on the blogs and on twitter and a little community is starting to form. Search #WASO on Twitter to see just some of the remarks and conversations.
To add a bit of interest and to give a bit of inspiration where wanted, we've introduced an optional theme. A new theme is introduced every other week, and we try to give a week's notice of what it will be.

The linky itself is open every Friday-Sunday, and you can add the url of your post in that time, lists appear on here and The Puffin Diaries, and both Sarah and I try to tweet our own blog addresses (so people can find the #WASO) and the addresses of those who sign up...you can't beat a bit of extra publicity! We also share them on Facebook, so even if you don't have your own Facebook blog page, you might still see some visitors from there.

After each linky closes, the lists of all the blogs who've taken part remain on our sites.

This page will hold links back to all previous #WASOs so you don't have to scroll through The Boy's Behaviour or The Puffin Diaries to find them. And as long as the links added remain live on their own blogs, you'll be able to click through and read them.

  2. Head's improving, so I came looking to see what this week's #waso is all about.

    Is http://theadoptionsocial.com/category/weekly-adoption-shout-out/ where it's officially moved to now (for signing up I mean, not the results :})?

  3. Yep, all over on The Adoption Social now. For both signing up and results. Those listed here are remaining for the meantime as an archive and only go up to the point at which is moved (although all previous WASO's are on The Adoption Social too).
