Tuesday Things + Reader Survey Results

I just have a few random things to share today along with some of the results from the reader survey I posted last week.  Again, I thank all of you that filled it out for me.  I love hearing your feedback. 


+ I'm so very sad that somehow my blog roll has disappeared from my sidebar.  I used mine all the time because that's how I would try to catch up on reading blogs in the morning with my coffee.  I'm not exactly sure what happened to it; but to make it return, I have to start from scratch :-(

+  Do you know that 80% of the readers that filled out my survey found my blog through another blog?? It really doesn't surprise me that much, but made me realize how often people utilize other's "blog rolls" or "blog lists."  

+ Do you have a blog roll?  If you would like to add www.homeofmalones.com to yours, you can leave me your blog address in the comments and I will add you to mine.  

+ What are your favorite link-up parties to be a part of lately?  I've always thought those were great for finding new blogs as well. 

+ Sometime this month I will be showing off a new blog design around here.  I'm pretty excited about it and hope that everyone will find it very user friendly.  I sometimes find (when another blogger changes their design) that it takes a little bit to get used to before I decide that I love it! 

+ I've  been terrible about sharing new recipes around here because I haven't been cooking many new things.  Fall usually inspires me to try new recipes though including lots of good soups.   Recipes were one of the top things in the survey that people said were their least favorite blog posts.  I can understand that because I don't think it's something that people may immediately use, but they like to save it for another time.  

+ Fashion posts were also at the top for least favorite posts.  Again, that doesn't surprise me too much because I think certain readers enjoy those more than others.  I like to shop, so there will always be some fashion or OOTD posts around here, but I will try to keep it in mind.  

+ I loved receiving feedback from you on what type of posts you would like to see in the future.  Day in the life posts are always the most requested.  I will try to do more of those and more about our day to day.  My goal is to actually try a day in the life Vlog.  I've been dying to make a cool video soon.  

+ You guys were also wonderful last week on giving me some recommendations for weight loss and exercise ideas.  I am writing down and tracking what I eat for a couple of weeks and hoping that helps and I'm also adding the rower into my cardio routine.  I'll share with you in a couple of weeks how it is going.

+ I announced the winner of the Jelly Cat bunny stuffed animal on instagram (@homeofmalones) yesterday.  Thank you again to everyone that participated and entered.  Those are seriously the cutest baby gifts. I love them. 

+ What TV show are you most excited about for Fall??

xoxo,

    1. No, but everyone has recommended that to me! I really want to watch that one. I keep trying to get my hubby to start on it, but now that football season is here; I probably don't have a chance :)

  6. lollipops! That always helps me loose weight. I go to sees candy and buy a ton of chocolate and vanilla lollipops so when i feel like a snack at night I can suck on something not overly sweet and satisfying. They also have coffee and caramel flavor too. At 30 calories it healthier than champagne or chips.
