blog changes:

April 7, 2009




hello dear friends + readers! i am thinking about making some changes in content for my blog in the near future, and i really wanted to get your opinion!

here are some of the changes that will be going on:

the daily: what do you want to see?
i am thinking of getting rid of some of the daily's, mainly link love, possibly lovely goods? and adding in classifieds. there will probably be a new schedule of something like:

monday: weekly giveaway.
wednesday: inspire lovely.
thursday: photograph.
friday: lovely goods(?) + classifieds.

still nothing for tuesday! also, possibly a new daily feature based on suggestions and the survey response.

giveaway: call for donations!
i am also trying to get sponsors lined up for a giveaway a week! that's right! every week you can look forward to a lovely item that you can have a chance to win. it will also include a shop feature for the shop donating. i already have a few really talented shops lined up. if you'd like to participate and can donate something, please email me with the subject "giveaway" for more information.

advertising: would you be a sponsor?
i will most likely start offering a few spots for advertising on the blog as well. if this is something you'd be interested in, please inquire for more information.

new design: time for new blog look!
we've had this layout since the new year, do you like it? i was thinking it might be time for a new design so possibly a new layout the next couple months! i can't decide between 2 column or 3 column layout, do you have a preference? i am really liking 3 column layouts, as most blogs i read have this layout.

surveys are fun! i've created a survey at polldaddy.com and if you could possibly take a quick moment to fill out the survey, i'd deeply appreciate it. it will help me gain a better understanding of what sort of things you'd like to see since i blog for all of you lovelies! if you do fill out the survey, please leave a comment and i'll pick a random winner for a free $15 gift certificate to the shop. click here or click the banner above to go to the survey! little incentive to fill it out, but it is always nice to give something away ;)

edit - april 8: polldaddy only allows up to 100 surveys taken for the type of account i have (which is free, heh) so there are currently 18 remaining survey spots available. thanks to everyone who took some time to fill one out already! lots of amazing feedback so far.

  12. I took the survey and really enjoy your blog, especially the name. I read your blog in a reader so the 2 vs 3 column thing doesn't really matter to me unless I click through to your actual site. Either way, it's a nice blog so do whatever floats your boat! Happy Tuesday!

  20. Oh Oh Oh Classifieds! So you can once again get me to buy more stuff for my place :)

    As for the design, do what you like but I like the none eye harassing colors of your site... seeing as staring at a computer screen all day at work can give me headaches, your site is a lovely retreat from harsh colors!
