Hi. This is Mel, Matthew’s mom. I wanted to give an update on how his interview project is going. First of all, thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of Matthew by reading his blog and commenting. We really appreciate it. Matthew tries to respond to all of his comments, but it may take quite awhile. So if you left a comment and haven’t heard back yet, your comment has been read (probably more than once) and appreciated. It just takes him quite a bit of effort to respond….so we only do a few at a time.
Thanks to Matthew, from defective yeti, Sarah Brown, of Que Sera Sera, and Steve, from the Sneeze, Matthew has had lots of volunteers to be interviewed. That is so awesome! If you volunteered, you have been put on our list. Matthew has read your info and/or looked at your blog or website (probably also more than once!). Matthew is able to do about 3-5 interviews per week…depending on his mood and his schoolwork…and schedule. We have created a page here with the list of volunteers, in order, so you can see where you are. Click the Interview List button on the page list. The page is password protected, so if you have volunteered, you will receive an email in the next day or so with the password, so you can go have a look.
We are so overwhelmed at the amount of people who have volunteered. This is turning out to be the most awesome project! Everyone is so kind. Matthew still needs more interviews to meet his goal. It is not too late to volunteer. You don’t need to be famous or have an out of the ordinary job. If you think this is a cool project that you would like to be a part of, please , don’t hesitate to volunteer. Matthew (and our whole family) has already learned so much through this project. We can’t wait to see the finished book. Matthew has just started working on the photography aspect of it. The tentative completion date is Matthew’s birthday at the end of September. We’ll see…..
Thank you again everyone. I really can’t express just how amazing this project has been for Matthew!
