I have a blog related to my day profession and I've been trying to acquire some interview with people related to my day profession. I've had little success with acquiring an interview with the interviewee in my home city. They explain they are too busy to sit for an interview. However, they have been published in related industry publications. Granted I am not a well read publication but I am serious about what I am writing about. I feel they do not take me seriously and their excuse that they are too busy is lame. I’d like to know if it is difficult to get a subject to sit for an interview? Or does someone have any tips of how I can secure an interview with someone. I’ve had some success with people abroad.
