If an Editor of a magazine approached you in regards to doing an article on Widely Spaced Siblings, would you participate?


The reason I ask is I was PMed an email by one of the Admin from a gentleman from Money Magazine. He is looking at doing an article on Widely Spaced Siblings.

Here is an email I was sent by Mr Mannes after I replied to the email admin forwarded to me:

Ms. Daniel:

Thanks for getting back to me. The reason I got in touch is that I am hoping
to write a story about a family with widely-spaced children. I'm not sure if
you're familiar with Money magazine, but we are a magazine devoted to
personal finance, and we often do it by writing about real families in
interesting situations, and explaining how they are overcoming particular
financial challenges in their lives. For this story, I'm looking for
families I can speak with who have a large gap in age between their youngest
child and next-youngest child -- say, a family with a one-year-old and a
15-year-old...My hope is to talk to these families about the unique
challenges they face, such as balancing the money they might pay for the
older child's college education with the money they might be paying some day
for the younger child's education.

I'm wondering whether you might have any suggestions for getting in touch
with families who might be interested in participating in such a story.

I can probably explain better what I'm doing over the phone...If you have
time, you can call me next week at 212-522-5923, or email me to let me know
where and when I might be able to reach you.

Thank you, and have a good weekend.

Still not sure. I am going to contact him via phone this afternoon on my lunch break.

I think it sounds like a neat opportunity and might be fun. What did you decide to do?

I have been so dang busy I have yet to call him. I HAVE to call him today on my lunch break. He probably thinks I'm blowing him off.
