Survey Says {Blog Questionnaire Results}

First off, thank you so much for taking the time to do my blog questionnaire! I have been in a bit of a creative slump so reading your feedback has been so refreshing! And a little surprising...

Question One:
What do you like to read about?
1. Book Reviews
2. DIYs
3. Fashion
4. Preschool Activities/education
5. Product Reviews
6. Recipes

There was a tie- Book reviews and Fashion got the most votes. And I have to say that really makes me happy. You can most definitely see more book reviews with What We're Reading Wednesday and I will be adding more style posts.

Question Two:
What could you do without?

Now this was where things got interesting. I had several people say "no book reviews and no DIYs" a couple "Day In The Life posts", a "no DITL posts" and a "no guest posts" with some saying they couldn't think of anything they didn't like (bless you) and a "no preschool posts as their kids were past that age."

Let me be super honest- I'm not a DITL type of girl. It takes a long time to document, I will forget to take pictures and I'm not a very exciting person. I may do one just to see how it goes but don't expect more than that. Thanks :)

Question Three:
What do you want to see more of?

I was surprised to see that my Preschool classroom was a hot topic. I swear my education posts get the least pageviews and yet, that's what everyone seems to want to see more of(?) Which is also a bit confusing lol. And that was also one of the first things I was ready to drop so I will compromise and do a few seasonal class tours. And the preschool activities are pretty much a cornerstone of this blog so those won't be going anywhere.

Question Four:
I recently started sharing fashion posts. What do you want to see?
1. How-to style
2. Flat lays
3. Roundup collages
4. Collaborations with other bloggers
5. Every day style  

And Every day style was the winner! Which completely tickles me as I am not a fashion blogger by any means, nor do I spend lots of $$$ on my clothes. But I do feel like I finally know exactly how to dress my body and am having fun playing with my personal style. And I love being able to share that with you!

Question Five:
And how often?

Responses ranged from "once a week" to "once a month". I think once or twice a month is my sweet spot- it actually takes a lot of coordinating photographing clothes (who knew, right?)

Question Six:
I don't get them often but, Sponsored content- how much is too much? What frequency is "acceptable"?

Now I asked this because I do not want to turn off people with too many sponsored posts. I never had intentions of being a for-profit blogger and actually find it a bit tacky when people start blogging just to make money. So rest assured, if I do make sponsored content it is because I really believe in the product. Getting paid is just a bonus.

Question Seven:
Any thoughts/ideas/concerns? I'm all ears!

This was my favorite category to read through! There was no negative feedback and everyone was so sweet! Thank you!

Question Eight:
Care to Share? Leave your name, how long you've been reading my blog, and a fun fact about yourself.

Well, the funny thing is, I'm horrible at fun facts so I was hoping you could inspire me! But turns out no one is good at naming a random fact without warning, haha.

This was so fun! Thanks again for the inspiration!

  1. Isn't it funny how certain topics can receive such opposite reactions. I personally like your preschool posts! And I'm excited to see more fashion!!!

  2. I love your space and believe that you should write about whatever you want. While your audience is important, it's more important for you to share our true voice and not one tailored to someone else.

  3. I loved how you were so open to everyone's input.
    You know my thoughts and feelings on those DITLs, so.... ;)
    Also. I love you for your thoughts and feelings on sponsored posts. I am right there with you. Too many sponsored posts that are clearly just for money? Ugh, so tacky. And that's when I start saying "byeeeeeee" to certain blogs.

  5. I am with Desiree I HATE DITL posts. I actually vowed to stop reading them as of yesterday. Stephanie has a way of doing them where she just touches on her day and doesn't share EVERY single detail. Whatever you do this year, I can't wait to read it! As for sponsored content I can DEFINITELY feel my readers cringe when I post too many in a row. I like doing the ones that fit what I like to do anyways, like recipes. THOSE I love. But I can certainly understand how nice the income is. However, if more than 20% of posts are sponsored, it gets to be a lot. I prefer to stick with 2-3 a month but that fluctuates because life.

  6. I love this! I've been thinking about doing a survey too, so you just inspired me!

  7. I love reading what other people have to say, and I agree I like OOTD too!

  8. So glad you were able to get some insightful feedback for your blog! I just adore you so anything you post is a treat to me. :)

  9. I love all your posts (I'm just always behind on reading them) so keep doing what you're doing! You know I love you :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. You make my day and put a smile on my face :) I respond to every comment so let's start a conversation, shall we?!
