Thank you to everyone that took the time to fill out the reader survey! It was great to hear from so many of you and get your feedback on the blog. I’m happy to know there is lots that you love about ConfettiStyle, excited to learn about the topics you want more of in the future and enlightened to know which topics that aren’t your favorite.
I love sharing what I’m passionate about and providing inspiring ideas with you here on the blog and it’s my goal to do more of that as this blog grows and develops. For now, I’ve got the survey results all wrapped up nice and pretty for you and I’m sharing some of the things I’ve got planned for the blog in the near future.
The majority of you like that ConfettiStyle focuses on several different topics.
43% of you read blog post first thing in the morning while the rest of you read in the evenings. (My goal going forward is to have post up before 8:00 am each day)!
And when it comes to social media, most of you follow on Instagram and Facebook, with Pinterest coming in third. Continue to follow along as I’ve got plans to share more original content on these sites going forward.
My FAVORITE blog topics on the ConfettiStyle blog are:
The vast majority (86%) like the design related blog post best, where Decorating Tips & Ideas are shared.
The second most popular blog topic was Organizing Ideas which is great to know since I love to organize and have lots more I can share on this topic.
And the next most popular topic was Gift Wrap How-to & Inspiration. This makes my heart soar because gift wrapping is a true passion of mine and my idea bank if full with creative ideas to share with you.
My LEAST favorite blog topics on ConfettiStyle are:
There was a two-way tie for the least favorite blog topic–Best of Etsy and Fashion.
I was surprised to learn the Best of Etsy series was not a favorite but I understand. As someone who has an Etsy shop, I know I may look at the site differently than others. In a world where there are so many amazing stores to shop from, Etsy lost out. Based on your feedback I am discontinuing the series but want you to keep one thing in mind regarding Etsy: Etsy is a great source of handcrafted and vintage items so when you’re shopping for a for a unique piece or want something custom-made give Etsy a chance.
And as far as the fashion post go, let’s just say I’ve closed that closet door on that topic but don’t hold it against me if I share a great fashion find or style tip from time to time.
I wish ConfettiStyle would focus more on:
The response to this question was pretty clear…50% want more DIY and tutorials, 25% want more Decorating Tips & Ideas and 25% want to see more Entertaining Inspiration and How-To Tips. These are all topics I currently share on the blog but I’ll be delivering more in the areas of tutorials and entertaining inspiration going forward.
I would like to see the following added to ConfettiStyle:
Yippee! The response to the question is what I was hoping it would be:
Over 70% of you want more Home Styling Tips so you’ll get just that. Now that my brother is in town and a photography master, I’m hoping he can help me create some videos so I can share how-to’s in a new way.
More than 50% of you want more Budget Decorating Tips and Ideas so look for a new series coming related to this topic.
You also made it clear that you want to see more Furniture DIY and Behind The Scenes post which I can deliver. I’ve been neglecting the stash of thrift store furniture in my garage so this gives me the motivation to tackle it.
A couple other areas that you want to see on the blog are Ask A Designer and Blog Collaborations. I’ve always been open to answering questions I get from readers but I haven’t shared the feedback in any formal way. I’m thinking of starting a monthly “Ask A Designer” series and hope that you’ll supply me with lots of questions to respond to. And as far as blog collaborations go, this is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and hope to put in place for fall and holiday. Stay tuned!
How often do you want to receive post from ConfettiStyle?
It seems that 3 to 4 times a week is how often the majority of you want to receive blog post. Up until now it’s been my goal to post 5 to 6 times a week and although I’ve had some lapses I’ve posted on a regular basis. Anyone that has a blog knows the time commitment it takes to curate content and share on a consistent basis but they also know if it’s something you love to do, it’s worth the effort. ConfettiStyle is my baby and I love connecting with you, so it will be my goal to deliver new blog post to you 4 to 5 times a week!
And finally, I asked you to share a few of the other blogs you read so I could see what other topics you enjoy. Many of you shared blogs that I already read but there were a few ‘new-to-me’ blogs that you listed: The Art of Doing Stuff, Gardenista and Suburban Faux Pas! These are all great blogs so thanks for sharing them with me.
In addition to some of the blog plans I mentioned earlier in this post, I’ve also got a site redesign planned in the next month and in addition to a whole new look you’ll find an online shopping guide of all my favorite product sources.
Thank you again for the participating in the survey and for all the love and support you’ve shown me and ConfettiStyle.
