Last week I asked you to fill out a little survey for me. Well 12 of you did, so thank you!
The results were surprising, yet not, at the same time, if you know what I mean. Anyway, onto the results!
Half of the respondents have been around for 1-3 months. The other half have been here since the beginning or they’ve recently stumbled upon this little blog here. The majority of my blog readers are from the good ol’ US of A. And one is from Finland. Shout out to my overseas reader!
So how’d my readers find me? Well 25% were drawn in by a comment I left on their blog, 25% came here from a link on another blog, 8% found me via Pinterest, and 42% can’t remember! For those that can’t remember, I’ll bet it was a comment I left on your blog… which I probably found via a link up or a comment you left on another blog (yup, I’m a comment stalker).
My lovely readers follow me in a variety of ways. Most follow via Google Reader or Bloglovin, which makes sense. Four of you follow me on Twitter, 3 on Pinterest, 2 on Facebook, and 2 on Instagram. Did you know you can also get my posts delivered straight to your inbox? Well you can!
Your favorite post types are life, tips + tricks, and tutorials, so it makes sense that those are the posts you want to see more of as well! I have plans for more tips/tricks posts as well as tutorials, so I’m so glad you want to see more of them. Right now I’m actually working on a post (or posts!) on Google Analytics thanks to Betsy and Eliza. But first I have to learn it myself, so stay tuned! As for more life posts, I don’t know how much more life I can post about without putting you to sleep! Honestly, my life is pretty boring. Plus, when I do do something interesting, I don’t like taking my phone out to snap a picture. And what’s a blog post without a picture? But I’ll try to find a way to make it interesting.
In comparison, your least favorites are recipes, product collages, fashion, and inspiration. Frankly, I hate writing recipe posts, so you’ll only see them if I come across an amazing recipe and I happen to photograph it. As for product collages, fashion, and inspiration, well I don’t see those going away anytime soon. And I’m super happy no one hates design, life, tips + tricks, and tutorials!
92% of you want 3-4 posts per week. This was a little surprising to me. Probably because if I love a blog, I want to see daily posts on it. On weekends I usually go through withdrawals when my favorite bloggers don’t post. It’s ridiculous. Anyway, right now I’m posting 6 days a week… or at least that’s the plan. Sometimes that doesn’t happen. I have been hoping to cut back, but I have so many ideas! Thanks to this survey though, I’m going to reevaluate these ideas and try to schedule only 4 posts a week. And since you want to see more tips, tricks, and tutorials (which take more time to write), 4 posts sounds more manageable.
Comments, comments, comments. The majority of you only expect replies when you’ve asked a question or every once and awhile. I’m glad you said that because I feel bad not replying even though I sometimes have nothing interesting to say. So from now on my reply policy is this: If you ask a question or are a first time commenter, I’ll reply. If I have something interesting to say, you’ll get a reply. Otherwise, I won’t, but I promise I do read each and every comment and I appreciate them all.
To those of you who left sweet comments in the suggestion box, thank you! You have no idea how much your kind words mean to me.
If you read all this, you deserve a gold star. I’m usually a girl of few words and this is by far my longest post to date.
