70% of those who took the survey do not have children
This surprised me because I feel like most of my blog friends/readers are mamma's, but I guess I was mistaken. Or maybe those blog reader mamma friends didn't have time to take the survey?!
Either way, even from this sample, please understand I plan to keep this in mind as I make the transition to motherhood! I don't intend for this blog to become one focused on parenting or motherhood, though those will certainly start to influence me as my life changes.
88% of those who took the survey have their own blog
I was not surprised by this number. A lot of comments are from fellow bloggers (though I know not everyone who reads my blog leaves a comment).
But it makes me wonder how those non-bloggers find my blog and what keeps them interested in blog reading if they're not invested in their own. I read blogs a bit while I was wedding planning, but did not spend much time on blogs outside of looking for those inspirational images (remember the days before Pinterest?)
What topics you find most interesting?
I love knowing what interests you! No one chose to write in any additional topics, but it seems clear that personal stories, DIY and home reno/decor are the clear favorites. That made me happy because I find those topics interesting too.
What topics you like to see on this blog?
Thanks for giving me some encouragement with what to blog about. I was excited to see so many people are interested in home renovation and decor, because I want to spend more time blogging about it, which means I need to do it in real life, right? I am also considering DIY tutorials to share and will keep them in the mix along with recipes, social media tips
How do you follow this blog?
I also started thinking of other questions to ask, but those will have to wait until next year I guess. Or maybe I will do some smaller polls via Facebook or Twitter to get some input. Have you ever done a reader survey? What kind of results did you get?
By the way, I used Learning with NCES Kids' Zone to create each of the graphs above.
