Let me see… was there a single response that didn’t make me happy? Uh no.
Most of them made me laugh, but everything I got was super appreciated. Today I am finally!!!! sharing the results with you guys, I hope you like them!
*note: some of these answers were paraphrased because of length. i mention no-one’s name except for one person who i know in real life and asked for permission 🙂 he said yes, unsurprisingly 😉
what posts do you like seeing from me??
so obviously you guys like my book posts??? which is good, cause…. I’M A BOOK BLOG. tags and book reviews are apparently a no-go, butttt I have a lot of tags piling up so one day I plan to just do a massive post and, uh, you can read it or not but I will probably nominate you!! Cause I’ll need a lot of people haha.
life updates came second, but I only really do them in my monthly wrap ups? which you guys also love tbh. I might do a couple more though occasionally, if you’d like.
what posts do you want more of??
(ignore the bottom four options lol)
well, you obviously like learning more about my life, and almost no-one wants more book reviews or tags. which makes sense cause the same happened up above. I also got a response saying “more unique posts”, which I have been trying to do since I got that response (examples/self-promo: here and here (that one was written before my blogiversary even but oh well)). Also (and I quote) ‘more discussion-y posts’ was mentioned? which I guess I could do but for me I don’t feel I could count that as a post and considering the current length of my posts (something else I’m working on) I think any more than 1-2 posts a week is plenty? especially with school too? so let me know if thats something you’d all be interested in and I could make it happen *boom* *mic drop* *picks it up embarrassed to read the next point*
what posts do you want less of??
oh. oh dear. A LOT OF PEOPLE want less tags/reviews. but almost no-one wants less life updates and tags are how you guys can find out more on what’s happening for me rn so I’m really confused? and reviews I think I should do one a month cause I’m a book blog but how can I spice them up a bit (cause I hate writing them too – especially spoiler-free ones because I’ll only review a book I liked and then I want to fangirl about it). PLEASE HELP.
are there any posts you’d like me to do??
lotta variations on ‘no’ here. “keep doing what you’re doing” “whatever you like!” “no your blog is amazing” (marshmallows for whoever said that) I ASKED THIS FOR POST IDEAS AND YOU GUYS FAILED. no really the only reason I asked this was in case of serious bloggers block.
however I got some ideas! yay! “a post about calligraphy” (ooh yesss) “any tips you have” (see an answer coming up) “diys” (to the person who asked that one, it’s never gonna happen. sorry!) “more beautiful setups” (aww thank you!) “blog formatting tips” (I want to keep all my secrets!!! but I can do one if any one wants… maybe like how-i-write-a-post?) “your irl friends lol” (sorry quint that ain’t happening… except if I can interview you? :p) “really want a monthly bujo setup” (see the thing with those is that i can only do them once a month, sorry to disappoint you with that earth-shattering fact) “what brought you to the love of books” (love that one!! thank you!!!)
any tags/awards you tagged me for??
which, tbh, probably won’t happen now bc of survey results. and I only got two, one of which doesn’t exist (@myfriendquintistheactualbest, and that… isn’t happening. (quint gave me some hilarious responses *hugs*)
what length do you like my posts to be??
the vast majority of you said 350-600 words. which I do get, but I tend to ramble (if you hadn’t noticed… meaning you must be new) which brings my posts to between 900-1.5k words. yeah. one person said “as many as deemed necessary”, another said they don’t mind, “Idk *shrugs* 😉” and then “100000000000000000000000000 words or more” was quint. again.
i’ll try to make my posts shorter. (but this one’s already 745… meaning my plans to join the responses with the q+a are decidedly NOT happening)
would you guys mind if I did like 2 part posts? or just one, and stick with the length?
what do you think of my design??
so the vast majority of you answered this before I put my new design into play. here’s a reminder of the old header (so you know what the responses pertain to):
a lot of you (50%) said “I like it.”, just over a quarter really made my day and answered “AHH IT’S SO PRETTY HOW DO I FUNCTION”, someone said “it drop dead gorgeous” (three guesses), “IT’S AMAZING!! I love it, your graphics are on FLEEKKKK!” was another that made me smile, and “the title design is a bit hard to read” was another, but i’ve changed that now 🙂
anything you wish i did/had??
lots of variations on “no it’s perfect”, someone wishes I had a dog (hi again quint, I do too), “more unique and diverse posts” (which I am planning for the future hehe), “a fixed sorta post” (I joined Top 5 Tuesday!) “nope I come here and it’s a happy time” (why thank you), “your header looks a bit blurry but otherwise it’s all beautiful!” (thanks! and that was to the old header, how does it look now?), “goodreads” (maybe one day), and then “nothing I would possibly change about your amazing blog <3” (agh I love you! thank you!)
anything you wish i didn’t do/have??
“i would tell you if there was something to change” (okay…), “you’re all good *thumbs up*” (thanks!), “perhaps cut back on the tags?” (the last tag I did was jan, and before that in blogmas when i was needing ideas DESPERATELY), “the orange and blue thing that makes up marshmallow harmonies” (okay i have no clue what you mean by this? so if you said that please tell me!! and explain!!), “nope all is well in marshmallow land”, and finally: “have so many pens (gimme some)”
questions? queries?? comments???
“what made you want to start blogging” – i’ll add that to my q+a // “what is ur fav colour” – also adding to the q+a // “ur super cool” – thanks // “do you like pineapple on pizza” – you’ll have to wait until the q+a… // “thank you for being an amazing blogger” – thank you for making my day 🙂 // “I LOVE YOUR BLOG ITS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING AND I CANT WAIT TO SEE MORE OF IT! HAPPY ONE YEAR BLOGGING! 🎉 🎉 🎉“ – ily // “your blog is great and so is your personality! so glad i discovered you <3” – aww you too
would you want more discussion-y posts? more tags/reviews/life updates? one big review or short mini reviews (or ways I can ~spice~ them up)? anybody want formatting tips? what do you think of my new design (be honest please)? would you guys mind if I did two part posts? or just one, and stick with the length?
thank you so much to everyone who answered, you all made my day by submitting something 🙂 the survey is also still open! i’d be grateful if you took it! link here! i might even do another responses post if i get enough!
p.s. today is the day my hiatus starts!!!! so feel free to comment and everything else but i won’t be responding 😉 i may also end up posting before my hiatus ends, but only because i kind of underestimated the amount of spare time i’d have on holidays and my brain has SO MANY IDEAS for posts. 🙂 ❤
