State of the Blog: The Change Up
Mar 27, 2012
Do you ever have one of those weeks where you just want to change everything? When you suddenly feel the desperate urge to muck out closets, make life plans and just cleanse the detritus from your life with a soap made from God’s own fury?
No? It’s just me?
Well, so be it.
Anyway, I’ve been having one of those weeks. Months. Whatever. And it’s gotten me thinking about where I want to take Capitol Hill Style.
When I started this blog, I had four pageviews per day and three of them were my Mother. Now, it’s delightfully surprising how many of you come here every day/every other day/once a week to read my musings on professional fashion. And I couldn’t be happier with or more grateful for this turn of events. But where do I see the blog in six months or a year?
To keep growing the site and keep things fresh, I sometimes ask you for content ideas. Occasionally, I follow up. But more often than not, I either don’t find the time or the ideas, even the good ones, don’t fit into the vision/schedule of this site.
I greatly appreciate all of the comments you ladies (and gentlemen) have left here over the years giving me ideas about how to make CHS better. To put it in “Hill Speak,” I’m getting a feel for the needs of my constituency. So I’d like to ask a few questions this time:
1) What is your favorite thing on the blog? Which posts do you find most helpful?
2) Which posts do you like the least?
3) Is there anything that I used to write about or a feature that CHS used to have (closet makeovers, Resale Salon, etc.) that you miss?
4) Do you have any suggestions on how to make the site better suit the needs of working women?
Leave your thoughts in the comments. I’ll be going through them this weekend.
