Blog Survey | The Results

Recently I put together a quick little blog survey to find out what you all enjoyed reading and what you wanted to see more of on my blog. I decided to do this after seeing how helpful Becky from Becky Bedbug had found hers, I'm really happy that mine has been just as helpful. A big thanks to those who filled it out for me, your answers have been really useful. I thought it would be interesting to share the results with you, if you didn't fill it out but feel you want to answer one of the questions feel free to answer them in the comments below.

I asked a variety of questions but my main reasons for doing the survey were to find out whether people were having trouble getting on to my blog and to find out what you enjoyed reading. I'm so happy that all my blog problems have been fixed now and you shouldn't have any problems getting on to my blog now. 

I was really happy with the answers I got for this question, most people who answered have been reading my blog for at least a year. After that the most popular answers were 2 years, 6 months and since I've had it. I'm really happy to know that a lot of people have stuck around, it's nice getting new followers but I think it is so good to see familiar faces still reading your blog after a few years!

The answers to this question really did surprise me, the most popular answer was beauty reviews which shocked me. I thought people didn't enjoy reading my beauty reviews any more as there are so many beauty bloggers out there doing a much better job than myself! After beauty reviews came life updates, hauls, OOTDs and health updates. I think the answers to this question overall just surprised me, I haven't done a proper life update post (that isn't just about my health) in a while as I thought people didn't enjoy reading them. I'm really glad I did this survey if only to see these results.

There was definitely a clear winner with this question, nearly 70% of those who answered wanted to see more lifestyle posts on my blog! Nearly 60% want to see more beauty posts and 20% want more fashion posts. I was surprised that only 20% of those who answered wanted to see more fashion posts, I personally really enjoy doing them, obviously these results won't stop me doing them though. 

I spend a lot of time wondering about why people follow my blog so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to find out why people do. All your answers were so lovely so thank you! A lot of people said they liked my style of writing and also they were interested in my scoliosis/surgery/health journey which was helpful to know as I often feel like people think I'm just writing those kinds of posts for sympathy etc. Also lots of people said they enjoyed reading my blog because they are around my age, I should have asked how old people were really! To the person who said I was an inspiration to them as well, big hugs for you, thank you!

I've been blogging nearly every day now for quite a while so I was definitely interested in finding out whether people enjoyed that schedule or not. It turns out that 70% of those who answered prefer it when I blog every other day which surprised me but didn't surprise me. So, I will be blogging every other day from now on!

I thought it would be nice to give people a little bit of space at the end to say anything else they wanted to and it was nice to see that lots of people commented saying for me to keep it up. Whilst I do blog for myself as it makes me very happy it is so nice to know that people are enjoyin what I'm doing. 

If there is anything you want to say, or if you want to answer the questions/a question then leave a comment below!

Thanks for reading,
