I have been thinking long and hard about how I am going to take my blog forward now that I will have a lot more time on my hands. I started my blog for me as a way of recording my ideas and bringing them to life. However, as time has gone on and I have read your lovely comments and become more and more aware of the little community that surrounds my blog, and the larger blogosphere, that there are real people who read it! It is so easy to think that not a soul will read your words, let alone try your ideas, but everyday I speak or hear from someone who has done just that – it really is quite amazing and for that I would like to say a big thank you.
I learnt so much from my teaching career, but one of the most important things, which teachers, parents and politicians forget far too often, is that you have to ask the children what they want and need, what they enjoy most, what they think of your lessons. Sometimes, this is forgotten because people don’t actually want to hear the answers, for fear of negative feedback. Anyhoo, the point is that I want to ask all of you what you think of my blog, what type of posts you enjoy the most and what you would like to see more or less of, which I hope will help me develop it in a positive direction.
Do you want more or less of: Home tours, craft projects, DIY before and afters, sewing tutorials, design ideas, home improvement tips, my home, gardening ideas, shopping suggestions, more guest posts by other bloggers, more money-saving ideas? Is there something I am not doing that you would find useful? Would you prefer fewer words and more pictures or the other way around? Is my blog design clear and easy to use or is there something that just doesn’t work for you? Here are some past posts to trigger your mind…
