Feedback Time!

I’ve been posting since the middle of February (meaning this is about my 99th blog post! Or 132nd, if you count quotes), and now it’s time for some feedback. Of everything I’ve posted, what’s your favorite and least favorite post (or one that’s just sort of “eh”)? What do you think of all the different types of posts? Which one do you look forward to the most?
I look forward to hearing what you have to say!

    My favorite kind of posts are the thought provoking ones. You do a great job with them- I’m a little sad there hasn’t been one in a while. My very favorite post is probably “Five Ways to Define Success.” It was really helpful and inspiring. <3 Writing prompts are a close second as far as categories go. It's always fun to see what you come up with.

    As for least favorite, that's a bit harder. The book reviews aren't always applicable, since I don't usually read romance, but they're still interesting. Oh, I know what my least favorite post was- the makeup poll ;). I don't wear makeup and I couldn't care less about it.

      Well, thank you! I’m so glad you liked those 🙂 I did too. I’ll try to come up with more thought-provoking posts every now and then. Sometimes they come to me more easily than other times. They’re probably the hardest type of post I write, so it’s really encouraging to hear how much you appreciate them! And I’m glad you liked writing prompts too 🙂

      Lol! That’s fair 😉 I usually don’t wear it either.

        Honestly, I have the same problem with the thought-provoking posts for my private blog. I agree with you; they are hard! I have only posted two at this point, and the next one has kept having its date pushed forward because writing it wasn’t going very well. Anyway, I totally understand, but I do always look forward to hearing your words of wisdom. 🙂 And when I read them, I never would guess that writing them was hard. 🙂

    I thoroughly enjoy your book reviews because of all of the unique little features that you add to them to make them stand out, like the different quotes; I just look forward to reading them.

    The different life-tips/polls are also fun to look forward to because I like seeing other people who have the same interest or thoughts as I do. Its a great way to strike up conversations and get to know your readers.

    As for the the posts I like the least, honestly, would be the standalone quotes, mainly because I can’t always relate to them nor have I read the book you are quoting, or I am not familiar with the person of whom you’re quoting. Some I do like, but if I had to pick a least favorite, those would be it 🙂

      Aww, thanks, Ray!

      I’m glad you like those too, since they’re a bit newer 🙂

      Hmm. I see what you mean. Thank you for taking the time to give me some feedback!

    I would have to agree that the Wednesday writing/profound life thoughts posts are my favorites, although surprisingly enough I really enjoy your book reviews despite not being a fan of your genre. You are good at presenting them and making them seem interesting, and adding universally applicable questions at the end.

    Your writing prompts fall to the bottom by process of emlimination, although I like those too. Many of them are quite creative, and it is interesting to see where others take them.

    I know this is a weird thing to suggest, but for improvement maybe connect some of your posts better. There have been a couple of times lately where I wanted to find a particular post and couldn’t. Also, your reviews often have books by the same author. I recognize the name, but I don’t want to pile back through six months of posts to find out what her other books were. Maybe if you did an “Also by this author:” section at the bottom, it would help. Also with books in a series. You review books individually, but sometimes mention they are book # in a series, and I remember you having mentioned that series before but don’t remember what book it was.

    You’re doing a great job with this blog!

      Well, thank you, Hannah! It means a lot when someone who doesn’t typically like the genre makes an exception for what you write–whether it be books or reviews 😉

      Hmm. That’s a good idea! And it’ll help with SEO. Thank you for the encouragement and the applicable feedback, Hannah 🙂
