What’s Up Wednesday – Week 4 & Survey Results!
First, I want to say a huge THANKS to everyone who took the time to answer the survey questions last week. I didn’t get a huge amount of responses, but that’s okay, I still got some great feedback from you guys, and I really appreciate it! I also didn’t promote the post as much on social media as much as I normally would, and was busy promoting the giveaway that I had running. Either way, I really appreciate each and every response from you guys!
Also, you may notice I changed the theme and layout of the blog a little. Everyone that answered the survey said the blog was easy to navigate. However, I had a few issues with the last theme. It was easy to use, but I was having a few problems trying to customize without doing a lot of coding. I tried to keep everything close to the same, but hopefully, you find it even easier to use!
Here’s a closer look at the survey answers from last week if you’re interested
The majority of you guys who answered said you would like to receive blog updates 1-2 times a week. I post 4-5 times a week and sometimes more, and my email updates were scheduled to go out daily. I realize that can be a little too much and add to everyone’s already daily influx of emails. (which is one of the reasons I asked) I have now changed it to go out on Saturday and Wednesday, so if you are subscribed by email, you will receive all current posts between those days on only Saturday & Wednesday.
More Easy Recipe Posts!
The majority of people said they would like to see more recipes on the blog. I love making and posting easy recipes. I also love finding and trying new recipes, so I’ve come up with an idea for us all to share!
I’m working on a form where readers will be able to submit recipes to be featured on the blog. Any and all recipes will be welcome, and of course, you will get full credit! Also, any fellow bloggers who would also like to join by adding recipes will get credit and a link back to their site or post.
I hope to have this option up within the next week and will make an announcement. I will still also be posting my own recipes, but I think this will be a great way to share even more recipes!
I hope you guys will join in by submitting your favorite recipes! I can’t wait to try them 🙂
How to Receive Products Free for Review
Next with 50% of the votes was How to Receive Products Free for Review. I’m am working on a new updated list (with even more sites) and hope to have it in the next week or two. In the meantime, you can check out my old post here to get started.
I also have a monthly freebie post that I try to keep updated throughout the month that includes links to free samples and offers from companies. You can check out the freebies for April here.
Everything else received about the same amount of votes, and I will continue to post them as well. 🙂
The last question I asked was if you found the blog layout easy to navigate and find what you’re looking for and the majority of you guys said yes. As I mentioned earlier, I changed the look and layout a little, but mostly so I would have more choices for different colors and such. I also added the categories underneath the header at the top to make it a little easier to find things.
Again, I want to thank all the ones who took the time to answer the survey! You guys are awesome, and I really appreciate the feedback!
