TER ee uta) WHY YOU SHOULD FILL OUT THIS SURVEY: You might end up with assignments more tailored to your interests and areas of knowledge. It will help your editor get to know you better, which is never a bad thing. = Itopens you up to possibly getting to write "Identity articles” which are really fun, and could give you a chance to work on something outside of your normal Bustle work. This survey lets other Bustle editors know who you are so they can reach out to you if they have an idea that you might be perfect for Otherwise, you might have the ideal voice to speak about a particular topic, and we would never know! AFEW NOTES: We get how sensitive some of this is. The goal here is not to make you uncomfortable, nor to make you share anything you aren't totally comfortable sharing. If you want to skip this entirely, skip it! If you want to answer just a few questions, do that! You are absolutely in control of what you do and don't share, and what you do and don't want to write about that, We aren't trying to exploit your personal experiences so much as give you the option to choose to share them. Our editors are excellent at working with sensitive topics and helping you find the most respectful, intelligent, useful way to talk about even the most sensitive topics. But we're super aware that this is your life and your experiences, and you decide what you do and don't share, and how yau share it — Nothing from this survey will be shared without your permission. This is for Bustle editors’ eyes only, so we can have a better ability to call on the right people to write on various topics. = Don't put anything on here you don't want to write about. Putting it here doesn't mean you WILL be asked to write about it, but it should generally mean that you aren't opposed to talking about that part of your life. That might mean writing a whole article on it, or another writer calling on you for input on something they're writing that could use a quote from ‘someone like you. ~ That said, you can always say "no" to writing something or contributing a quote to something when the time comes Listing something on this survey does NOT commit you to writing about it. You might be too busy when an editor approaches you about possibly writing an identity post, or simply not interested, and that's okay!
