In an effort to be a smarter small business woman, I recently enrolled in a so-far freaking awesome class from Melyssa Griffin called Pinfinite Growth. One of my professional goals in 2016 was to broaden my understanding of various social media platforms and Pinterest was right up at the top. (What? Cathy has a Pinterest page? Apparently I do!)
One of the things that came out of some of the bonus content from this class was the idea of doing a reader survey.
I have been around since the dawn of time, y’all, but I’ve never done one. So I did.
I kept it short and sweet and over 1,400 of my subscribers responded. (Thank you, thank you!) The word cloud you see above represents some of the most common words that showed up in the responses. Turns out, people want to find ways to have more time to save stories and make awesome pages.
It also turns out that what you most enjoy reading here are posts about scrapbooking and stories from my everyday world.
(Posts about being a middle aged mama are in royal blue; posts about running a small business are in the kelly green and posts about my products are in yellow, for those who can’t read the cut off words.)
This is so helpful for me as I work to plan content that is useful and possibly entertaining.
I’m spending time this week reading all of the write-ins (and there are a ton because you guys have opinions which is GREAT for me!) and I hope to emerge with more ideas and a clearer picture of how to make my blog better and more worth your time. Stay tuned because I think good stuff is coming.
