Survey Results

December 7, 2009

Thank you so much to all of you that gave a few minutes of your time to answer some questions in my Grosgrain survey. The information you gave me was very helpful and very appreciated. I’ve read every one of your comments (and there were hundreds!), many of them more than once, and I promise that I will do my best to use them to improve Grosgrain wherever possible.

For starters, many of you said that you would like to enter more giveaways, but have various issues with linking. Of course, I want anyone that is interested in entering a giveaway to be able to do so. Therefore, from now on, giveaways can be entered in three ways; 1) By linking (to your blog, facebook, myspace, or any other site) 2) By leaving a comment without a link or 3) By linking and leaving a comment (this will be worth 2 entries). I’ll have more information on this during my next giveaway, as well as under the FAQ page.

I’ll also be making a few changes to my page layout. For instance, I received many comments asking me to categorize my blog archives, so I will be doing that shortly. In terms of content, many of you requested more tutorials, so I will be trying to post more of those (one of which I’m currently working on for later in the week). I also had no idea that so many of you viewed Grosgrain as a feed, so I’ve been trying to clean that up a bit as well- smaller photos and larger text. There are various other items that I will attempt to address in the near future, but they are too numerous to mention here. For now, just know that your voices have been heard, and that changes are on the way. Thanks again to everyone for helping to improve the site!

I think that being able to enter giveaways just commenting is a great idea. One thing I forgot to mention on my questionnaire was with the clothing giveaways would it be possible to give the measurements of the garment. I know you usually say it will fit a size 2-5 or whatever but being in Australia our sizes are completely different and we don't have a 2 or 5. I love your blog and all your creations they are gorgeous! Keep up the good work!

I'm so happy about this! Sometimes I just skip reading your blog feed 'cause it's hard to read - so I'm really looking forward to the changes. Also appreciating the changes to giveaway rules; you'll be seeing more comments from me soon. :)

Kathleen, your blog is great, and it is also wonderful that you took the time to survey us with two little ones, a husband and a baby on the way. xox

I second the comment about "I just skip reading your blog feed 'cause it's hard to read - so I'm really looking forward to the changes." and it's been a shame because I think I miss out on tons. Love how you'll be making it easier to enter contests too as I've never entered one before because of the many issues involved.

When I was taking the survey I accidently deleted it and it never got submitted. The only comment I really remember making was that I really enjoyed your themed outfits, they make it so fun. Oh, I also mentioned that I love seeing vintage inspired clothing.

I love that you care so much about your readers. I'm also glad your feed is getting easier to read... I do love you enough to squinch my face up to read it, or use the feed to click over when you've updated. (I use bloglines, if you're curious)
