Reader Survey & Giveaway!

February 25, 2015

I need your help today!!  You see … I’ve been at this blogging thing for about a year and a half now (what?!?), and basically if I like something, if I feel strongly about something, if I create something, or have some major family event, I write about it here.

I share lots and lots of little crafty, DIY stuff.

I share some kid’s craft ideas.

I share some home decor inspiration and some home tours here and there.

I share some ideas for living healthy.

I have quite a few link parties to share other bloggers’ projects and inspiration.

And I share random, personal information and life events here.

In all the blogging ‘how-to’ articles I’ve read, they suggest ‘picking’ a niche or a theme and sticking with it.  Like … write about crafts and stick to that.  Or … be a food blog and stick to that.  Or … write about kids’ activities and stick to that.  This blog, however, seems have a bit of an identity crisis as I skip around a lot.  It’s sort of a dumping ground of what’s in my head lately (which apparently has a lot going on in it).

Today, I’m just stepping back a bit so I can hear from you guys.  I write this blog for me and my family, but also for all you readers out there!  I can’t tell you how much it means to me that you have followed along (and endured my randomness).  It has moved from a hobby to a slight obsession and I love creating content and sharing it here!  Seriously … I’m obsessed in the best possible way (or so I think).

I put so much effort (and time) into this blog that I want it to be worth it!  To help me get a better idea of what you want to see more of (and what you could do without), I’ve created a very short survey.

I promise it will only take 3 minutes … or less … of your time!  And it will help me focus on what you want to see here!

To make it worth your while, I’ve also got some incentive …


I’m giving away a $20 Amazon Gift Card to one reader that completes the survey!  And I’m pretty sure everyone can find something on Amazon to spend it on.

I’ll let you jump right in …

Thank you, Thank you!!

Drop me a note in the comments below that you’ve finished the survey (using a valid email address that I can send your prize to).

I’ll pick a winner at random and send you the loot!


Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!  Your feedback will help me focus and better this blog (for all of you!).

**Giveaway open to anyone 18 and older.  It will end March 6th at midnight.  Best of luck!
