Last week, I asked you to take a survey. I hoped to gain insight into what you like and dislike about Happy Healthy Mama and how I can make it the best blog it can be. I’ve gone through times during the last 4+ years I’ve been blogging of putting more and less effort into this space. Life ebbs and flows and this blog has been a reflection of that. Right now, I’m all in. I am focused and determined to make this blog all that it has the potential to be. Blogging is hard and sometimes lonely work. Reading your responses was motivating, inspiring, and so very insightful for me. Thank you for giving me a spring board for moving forward with Happy Healthy Mama.
One big thing I learned through this survey was that I’m never going to please everyone. There were lots of contradictory answers. Stop writing about your kids! I love it when you write about your kids–do it more! Ummm….okay? You are so sweet! You are condescending. Fair enough? So while I learned that there is no pleasing each and every reader with every post I do, I need to continue to write from my heart. And that’s exactly what I plan to do. Here’s a look at some of the results from the survey:
Lots of new and new-ish readers! I’m glad you are here!
This was interesting to learn about. I suspected I had a majority non-blogging readers because of the amount of comments I get (or don’t get) in relation to my page views. Bloggers tend to comment more.
