State of the Blog: A Quick Reader Survey

Sep 8, 2016

Since I started this blog in 2008, it has grown by leaps and bounds.  This summer, I’ve spent a great deal of time contemplating new features, planning content changes, and working out how The Work Edit will look moving forward.  But after nine years of blogging, I spend more time questioning whether you ladies will like my plans than I do executing them.  So I thought, what better way to learn more about who you are and what you enjoy than simply asking?

Last night, I created a 20-question reader survey.  It contains a handful of demographic questions.  It asks what content you like and which isn’t relevant to you.  And it discusses some of the new features I’ve been contemplating in order to gauge your level of interest.  I’m going to leave it up for a week, and I hope it will help direct my ideas going forward.

The link to the survey can be found here.  It’s mostly multiple choice, and takes less than 10-minutes to complete.  Please spare a few minutes to take it; I greatly appreciate your time and input.

xo, Belle

    I just tried to follow you on Twitter and see that I am blocked?

  2. C says:

    Just took the survey. Forgot to mention that I like the inspirational quotes that you post! 🙂

    Reader since 2010.. you’ve gotten me through unpaid internships, YP life, going back to law school, and re-entering the work force. Where you lead, I will follow.

    • Tech Writer says:

      Oh, gosh, yeah. I forgot that too. I’ve screencapped more than one for posterity.

      Also, since the reorg, the number of comments summary has disappeared from the front page so you can no longer see if there are any comments without clicking through. It’s minor, but an extra step, and I like reading what everyone has to say, so will click through if I know comments are there.

    I just filled out the survey, so it won’t let me take it again to add some comments. Wanted to mention: I like that you introduce me to new brands that I now LOVE (eg MM LaFleur–totally obsessed). Wish you would include more content for petites. Thanks!

    I took the survey but two additional things I forgot to mention. First, I strongly preferred when the links used to open in new tabs instead of redirecting from the blog. Second, I also like the occasions when you share from your own experiences (reviews, work stories, personal stories, etc). Thanks!

    • Belle says:

      Wait, they don’t open in new tabs? They do in my browser. What are you using?

      • B says:

        I use safari. They used to open in new tabs but at some point in the last year(ish) that changed and now it redirects from the blog page. I wonder if others have experienced this? If not, then perhaps it is just my browser. Thanks for all you do!

        • Belle says:

          The new design should have fixed this issue. You might try clearing your cache (I know, they always say that), and reloading the page fresh. If that doesn’t work, I’ll put someone on it.

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
