Reader Survey | January 2017

This is a new year and I have a new focus on my blog.  I’d love to hear your feedback! 🙂

The last time I did a reader survey was in July and I was overwhelmed with the positive responses I received.  They were both encouraging and really validating!  Admittedly though, I never shared the results because I wasn’t sure how to organize the answers to display here.  So, I have two promises: 1) I’ll keep reader surveys more simple in the future and 2) I will display results so you know that you are being heard!

This fall, I realized I needed a break from blogging so much.  We had traveled so much during the summer and I just felt very tired because of my health + developing my candle business.  I decided that I wanted this space to go into a different direction and I started turning down a lot of sponsored content because it just wasn’t very fun anymore to me.  Since the focus has changed on becoming more myself everyday, the ideas that I have been coming up with blogging have been a little different.  I’m really interested in your feedback and to know what you enjoy reading most.  While this is a hobby that I could do by myself, I really enjoy the feedback, community, and friendship I develop from publishing to readers.

Also, I would love if you introduced yourself in the comments below.  I know because of pageviews that I have that there are a lot of people that I don’t get a chance to say hello to!  Tell me your name, where you are from, and some fun things about yourself! 🙂  I’m looking forward to learning more about you.

Thanks for filling out the reader survey!

  • Hey! I’m Rachel and I’m from South Florida! I don’t really know anything fun about myself haha but I love going to the beach and try to go every day! Oh I guess one interesting thing is that I started my own business so I would have the flexibility and freedom to watch the Ellen Show ever day!

  • I love your new focus! I also haven’t been pursuing much sponsored content because it doesn’t feel “me.”

    • Yeah, I just haven’t been as much into it and I’ve found people don’t interact with those posts as much either.

  • I should really do a reader survey again… I did one for my first blogiversary, 1 1/2 years ago, and I never shared the results either!

    • I have really loved the feedback and I’ve found it really helpful. My last one was more complicated, but this was more simple and I have liked it a lot better this way.
