The Five and One series started on a whim when I asked a colleague to answer five questions related to the field of public relations, and one question not related. He obliged and the series was off and running.
Since the first interview ran on February 5th of this year, I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing a best-selling author, a woman who is wholeheartedly into rejecting the status quo, and the blogger behind one of the most hilarious sites on the Web, just to name a few.
But what has really struck me since I began work on this project is just how willing complete strangers are to take a few minutes out of their day to answer questions for me. Every time I send an e-mail with a request for a few moments of their time, I tell myself that I won’t be offended in the least if they ignore my e-mail.
And every single time they have taken time out of their busy schedules to answer six questions.
For that, collectively, they are one of my favorite things.
