Donna at Funky Junk Interiors did a post recently with a similar premise, and asked for input from her readers. There is some really good insight over there, particularly in the the comments. It’s worth a look-see. Once you’ve there, I guarantee you’ll go back for her mad skillz!
I’m going to do something along those lines as well, and ask for your thoughts on my blog in particular (is that too selfish?). I’m going through a bit of a blog identity crisis right now.
Am I a decorating blog? I do some of that, but I’m no Nester, and I’m not very original. Even when I think I am, I find out that somebody has already done it!
Am I a crafting blog? I’ll answer that: no, I’m not. Again, I do some of that, and My Thrifty Gifty series was pretty popular, statistics-wise. But as before, originality is not my forte. I’m better at being able to recreate something I’ve already seen.
My main thrust seems to have evolved into thrift store blog. It was unintentional; it was fun to show some of the stuff I found, but I really didn’t mean for it to be all about that. I’m not going to stop going to thrift stores, but I’d like to try to focus more on what I can do with the things I find, and how thrift stores can be one way to stretch your dollar.
I do add some family stuff into the mix, and according to the comments on Funky Junk, some people don’t care for that. It’s too off-topic for them. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on the matter. Myself, I like a bit of the personal touch when I’m reading a blog.
So, here are some questions for you, to help me make this blog a place you like to visit:
- What do you come here to see?
- What do you like most about my blog?
- Dislike? (don’t worry about hurting my feelings!)
- What would you like to see more of?
- Less of?
- Keeping in mind the general feeling of my blog, what kind of linky parties would you like me to host, in which you might participate?
- Any other constructive criticism?
To all my readers, thank you...thanks for coming here in the first place, thanks for your comments, and thanks for coming back!
