The idea came to me when reading an interview in a magazine and being fascinated by the back and fourth discussion between the interviewer and the interviewee. I thought to myself "shouldn`t everyone have the opportunity to have a professional interview, not just the uber famous?" I decided the answer was yes, and set off to create this site. The design was intended to be simple and straight forward.
The main purpose of my site is really around helping people to build magazine style interviews about themselves and the things that interest them, and then by using the "addtoany.com" widget, providing users the ability to share those articles out with whatever social applications they use.
The site is predicated on 2 main points. The first is building a database of questions about anything and everything. Any user has the ability to log in and upload questions about anything, the site will search the database and prompt the user for possible similiar questions before proceeding.
The second, and more focal purpose, is around letting users search those questions, select them, answer them, and add them to stories/interviews they`ve created to build out an article about them and the topics that interest them.
Here`s an example of one of those finalized articles: http://www.lifeyoumentary.com/stories/view/25
Its an article I wrote about creating the site.
I`d love to hear what people think about usability, design, layout, and functionality. www.lifeyoumentary.com
