"I'm a _______, ask me anything!"

Posted by   + Show Post

You've probably seen threads like this here on CafeMom (or on Reddit), where a member with a unique worldview or exprience offers to answer other members' questions about that aspect of her life.

Do you have a unique perspective that others would want to know more about? We'd love to share YOUR answers as part of a new feature on CafeMom!

The focus can be as broad or as narrow as you'd like - everything from raising a special-needs child to living in Alaska to being vegan or living a polyamorous lifestyle or anything else that might be interesting!.

(Also, if you'd prefer to remain anonymous while answering questions, that's totally fine, but you'll need to verify a few things before we post your thread.)

If you'd like to participate or want to learn more, please send me a message telling me what your perspective or experience is and whether you'd like to answer questions anonymously or under your own screenname.

Thanks!
-Amanda

 That sounds awesome, I like the idea of some verifying too. How would you do that?

Well, yes ma'am I do!

I could go for that :D


Quoting Cafe Amanda:

Well, just extrapolating based on your avatar, maybe something like "I'm a mom who smokes pot, ask me anything"? :P

(I have no idea if you do, of course. But the avatar must mean *something* right?) :)

Quoting redneckmama4:

Interestin'! I guess I would but I don't think I am very unique.

It will depend on tha area of "expertise," so to speak. We're not like the CIA or anything, but we'll do our best to have participants provide us with something verifiable. :)

This sounds stupid buy I'm proud to say one of my pictures scored over a million hits last year. I cant take the credit though I had ever heard if reddit. My friend took it off of my FB page and posted it and told me after it gained its popularity.

Quoting Cafe Amanda:

That's the idea! We're just getting started. :)

Quoting caito:

That's a super popular thing on reddit, like you said. I think a group (or subforum here? I dunno) dedicated to AMA would be really cool. You could vet potential AMA participants and threads would be made and people could ask and answer questions there. I dunno, it would just be an easily accesed, easily archived place to keep current and past AMAs. Just thinking out loud ;)


I'm not that interesting. But I can't wait to read verified posts!
