questions + queries

I’ve been mostly stuck at home for the last few days, due to the above weather keeping me from doing a whole lot.  (I certainly don’t mind the snow–but we do live out in the country, so the snow plow hasn’t been on a few of the roads making it difficult to do errands)

It’s been good for blog planning though.  I spent some time looking at my stats for visitors and was surprised by a few things.  For example:  In the last three weeks, I have had visitors from 74 cities (in 24 countries) all around the world.  In the last year, my most popular month was February, with almost 1000 unique visitors (as opposed to page loads).  My average is about 500 unique visitors a month.  Probably the biggest reason for that large number was because I was doing the 365 project, and was posting on an every day basis then.

Here’s the thing: knowing that I have gained a fair readership–I’m wanting to put a lot more into the blog.  In the future, perhaps looking for sponsors (but that remains to be seen) but I definitely want to step it up.  So here is where I need your help.  I know that many of you are reading, and only about 2% are commenting (often times on my facebook page, rather than here).

I’d like to know:

A) What brings you to this blog?

B) What days/time of day are you more likely to read/look at blogs?

C) What would you like to see more of on this blog?

Commenting is super easy!  If you are viewing the post separately, there is a form at the bottom of the post. And if you are viewing from the homepage, there is a link that you click on that says “make a comment” and voila!

I’d LOVE to hear back from you.  I want this blog to be full of awesome sauce.  So comment.  Now.

Please. :)

PS: Like what you see? Want to share it with friends? I just added an easy “like” button and “share” button that will connect to facebook. Huzzah!

    A) What brings you to this blog?

    ~I always click on your blog links from facebook to see what beautiful photographs you’ve taken.

    B) What days/time of day are you more likely to read/look at blogs?

    ~Anytime these days since I’m at home. Once I’m back at work, I would look in the evenings.

    ~I just come to see your photos, so more of the same! :)

    A) I love your blog! I come to your blog because you write about what you’re passionate about and you take beautiful pictures!

    B) I’m most likely to look at blogs in the morning.

    C) Just keep doing what you’re doing. People come to your blog because you write about whatever you want and your beautifully creative. So all that good stuff :)

    a) I’m usually prompted by a facebook post by you, from there I’m naturally curious to see what the pretty photo in the blurb is all about.

    b) There is no rhyme or reason to my blog viewing time.

    c) Photos of course. Also though, I love the thrifting posts and any of your design related stuff such as the self designed and hand made clothing.

    Courtney,
    I love your blog but I admit I’m not a true follower as I only click on your links through Facebook. I would love more posts with photos on thrifting and home decor… and maybe performing arts stuff??? Good luck on continuing to build.
