So I just want to start by saying a HUGE thank you to all of you lovely folks who filled out my survey! I did theĀ survey so I could get a better idea of what kind of content my readers want to see from me! Well, it certainly didn’t disappoint! Not only did it offer lots of inspiration, but it helped me start to work out some new directions for my blog! Want to know more? Keep reading!

Getting feedback directly from the source has been so helpful. I also love that people feel connected to me through what I’m writing. It makes the world feel a little smaller, ya know? That being said, I thought I’d take you through a few of the new directions I’ll be working on this year!

More Stories, More Me!
I am terrible at remembering to do Instagram stories. I start and then forget! It’s also because I work full time, and prefer to keep work separate! Still, lots of you said it’s a fave way to consume content, so I’m gonna make the effort! Stories is where it’s at!

Home Sweet Home!
One very kind person said in their comments that they’d like to live in my home, which was so nice to hear! More home related content was a common theme. Your wish is my command! Making our house a home has been a real process, and I’m excited to share some of that with you!

Style Revamped!
I’ve always shared outfit posts on the blog, but now I’m moving more toward personal style. How I style patterns, featuring different pieces, dressing for my size 18 body, that sort of thing!

More Chat!
One thing people said they wanted to see more of was posts where I have a chat about a certain topic. I’ve done a few in the past, but it’s time to ramp it up! Almost 70% of you said you really enjoy them. Because of that feedback, I’ll be writing more think piece type posts, about things that are important to me, and about my personal experiences!

You, Me and a Cup of Tea!
Something else I’m not great at? Self promotion. I have a newsletter, did you know? It’s exclusive content as well. What you see in your inbox won’t be the same as what’s on the blog!

Not only has this survey helped me work out a few new directions, it’s helped me clarify where I can cut back. 2019 is going to be an amazing year, and we’re barely a few weeks in! I’m feeling excited about the blog, for sure! I hope you are too! Here’s to sharing a little more of myself, and to reaching new heights!
