Hey you! Yes, you. Want to win a product of your choice from my shop? Then I need to hear from you!
I’ve been meaning to connect with you guys for quite some time because you all feel so far away. Ironically, this week’s episode from the Chris Loves Julia podcast covered some real talk about the business of blogging, with one of the sticking points being that people don’t leave comments anymore. This makes gauging what you guys like/dislike and want more of/less of really tough.
One way I gauge what content works best is from page stats and analytics, but I can honestly tell you that my top four posts are all completely different topic-wise. (For those curious, my top performing post by a long shot is What I’ve Learned From Raising a Blue Heeler/Border Collie Mix).
If I had to define it, I’d coin my blog as a lifestyle blog—with a focus on design, creativity and style. This is what’s comfortable for me and topics I’ve posted about for years, sharing everything from If It Isn’t Posted to Social Media, Did It Still Happen? and My Kitchen Renovation Series, to Three Looks, One Pair of Mom Jeans and About a Room: A Charming Industrial Loft.
Where my struggle lies is in not knowing what exactly you guys want—or if this wide range of topics is exactly why you come here.
You may not have noticed, but lately I’ve been ramping up my blogging efforts in the form of scheduled, predictable posts: Every Monday you can expect a Pixels, Places + Things post; each Wednesday I serve up an evergreen post, be it a personal essay, an update on my home/life, etc; and Fridays are all about Links + Likes. I’ve also resurrected my Sunday morning newsletter for those who prefer to read all at once quietly over Sunday coffee. You can sign up here:
So it felt like the perfect time to conduct a blog reader survey (with a giveaway of a product of your choice form my shop)!
