Earlier this week I asked everyone to take a survey about my blog! It's crazy to think this particular blog is one year old. Instead of having a photoshoot of it smashing a cake, I decided I wanted to poll people on what was working and what wasn't. The results I got were extremely interesting and helped an incredible amount. Before I get into it I wanted to say that the survey is still open and if you haven't already I would love for you to take it! The link is at the bottom of this post.
Also, no one really loves my blog design! Which is ok because before I sent the survey out I had already emailed my designer to start making some changes. I'm glad we are all pretty much on the same page with that one.
Almost every single person that took the survey wishes I would post MORE (which honestly surprised me! I thought I needed to do this) and those that didn't pick that option picked the option of posting more regularly. So from this point on I am going to desperately try to post two-three times a week, probably on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Another surprising outcome of the survey, people really like my more serious posts like this one and this one. These posts are really scary to write and post because I don't want people thinking that i'm too big for my britches or too serious or whatever *girl insecurities* but really, those more serious posts are the reason I started my blog in the first place and I am happy to see that a huge majority of people ranked those posts first.
Anyway, I just wanted to thank everyone who took the survey and again if you haven't taken it yet, please do! I am hoping to do bigger things with my blog this year and I really want it to go in a good direction which I don't know if I can recognize without the help of friends.
Hey! My name is Riley Jo. I have been living off Dr. pepper and a prayer since 1991. My life motto is one that Joey Gladstone taught me on Full House... make fun of yourself before anyone else has a chance to do it first! That's my goal here. Thanks for stopping by!
