I have several questions I'd like to ask my readers so that I can make my blog a better place and one that y'all want to come and visit. I'm not trying to win any kind of prize for the most followers, as I know that some are just followers because of the giveaways (and that's okay, too!). I want you to REALLY enjoy my blog and want to come back to it. Sooo, in order for that to happen, I want to know what you want to see.
First of all, do you like giveaways? I've read lately on some blogs that they really don't like them. I guess I'm clueless about that, as I love to enter them myself, although I very rarely ever win. I love getting some pretty fabric or notions, etc. in the mail for free...but that's me. I do understand not having to jump through 10 hoops to be able to enter. I usually only ask that you be a follower of my blog and of the person that is sponsoring the giveaway. The other entries are purely extras if you want to do them. I will never ask for your first born. LOL
Second: Do you enjoy guest speakers or do you just want to have me write on here? Sometimes I do enjoy guest speakers on other's blogs, especially if there is a tutorial involved. I'm always wanting to learn something new. Other times, I don't really care for them. I guess it just depends for me. What are your thoughts? Yay or nay.
Remember, nothing you say on here is going to hurt my feelings (unless you tell me my blog sucks. Then I may pout for a day or two! Just constructive critism, please). I'm truly trying to make it a better place.
Thirdly, do you want to hear about me, family, etc., or just mainly creative, crafty things?
Fourth, do you only like blogs that have a lot of pictures ? Do you turn away from a blog post if there are NO pictures? Sometimes I've had things to say to you that really don't involve a picture, but I hesitate to write them because of that. I know most love to see pictures, but sometimes the subject matter doesn't really warrant one.
Fifth, I want to talk to you like I would talk to a friend sitting across the kitchen table from me over a cup of coffee, tea, or a coke (yum). Sometimes I'm a bit...wonky. Borderline smart a** at times (I've kinda sorta hid that part from you). Tell me...I want to know you and I want you to know me. :)
I read each and every comment that comes across my blog (they make my day. I know, I need a life!), and I do try to answer them, but sometimes it doesn't happen. I will be trying really hard to do better in the future on that. I do, however, usually click the link to your blog and read up on you. I love getting to know new people. I feel the internet has been a wonderful tool in making our world a smaller place. I cherish my overseas friends as I do the ones that live in my same state or town. I am close to my online friends (if not closer) than I am to my friends in "real life".
Sometimes I don't have access to a camera, which has hindered me from posting MANY times. Do you like pictures of my studio and how I organize it? (I am a bit of an organizing freak and love to organize things! ) Does that bore you? Or are you more interested in the things I've made or others have made?
I know these are a lot of questions, so just pick and choose the ones you'd like to comment on, or pick none if you want. I want my blog to be for YOU as well as it is for ME. If you aren't enjoying it, I'm wasting my time. I'm not trying to make the big times with my blog....no way. It's a way and a place for me to vent at times, too. That's another thing. When I'm down, I always hate to post in case readers think it's a downer blog. But we aren't always in perfectly happy moods, are we? Should we stay away from our blogs at that time, or reach out to our readers? I want you to know the real ME. The one that is happy sometimes, excited sometimes, worried sometimes, upset and mad sometimes etc., and trying to be faithful at all times to the One that matters the most to me.
If you are still here with me, thank you for hanging in there. I know this post is a bit "different", but is very important to me. Thank you for those of you that are faithful readers. I treasure all of you so much. I look forward to hearing how I can improve my little spot on the world wide web.
Have a safe and happy long weekend, for those that get it. :)
Hugs and love from STILL hot and dry Texas,
