Survey Results and What’s to Come in 2016

Hey there friends. First off, I want to thank all of you that took the time to complete the 2016 Readers Survey. I’m so happy that you like what I’ve created here at the Krafty Owl and I hope that 2016 is even better! After seeing your answers and reading all of your lovely comments, I decided to make a couple changes. But before we get to that I want to share the survey results.

After giving this lots of thought¬†and have decided that its time for some changes. Don’t worry, I’ve always been a crafter and I will continue to share my creations with you but for me, this year is going to be all about personal growth and organizing my life and I want to share all of that with you too.

 

I hear all over that you should stick to one topic or niche and not to stray into other areas but I know that’s not for me. Hey, variety is the spice of life right, so let’s spice it up shall we? Here is my new plan for the Krafty Owl…

 

  • Monday’s – Menu Plan Monday. Planning our meals helps me feel more organized and I love sharing it with you each week.
  • Tuesday’s – Craft/DIY.¬†Every week I will continue to share a new project I’ve been working on or a great craft/DIY round-up.
  • Wednesday’s – Planning/Journaling.¬†I will be retiring my Wordless Wednesday posts. I feel like they were just filler posts and none of us need or want that! I will continue to post new photos on Instagram and would love for you to follow me. From now on Wednesday’s will be all about planning and journaling. I have found some amazing inspiration Kara at Boho Berry. Her bullet journal is gorgeous and I can’t wait to start working on mine. Also, her Mandala’s are absolutely beautiful!!!
  • Thursday’s – General¬†– I am also retiring my Be a Better Blogger Series. I think that I will leave that topic to the experts like my awesome blogging friend Melyssa at The Nectar Collective. ¬†Thursday’s will now be for printables, organizing tips, a book/product review or anything else I might come up with ūüėČ
  • Friday’s – General¬†– Friday will be sort of a carry over from Thursday. You might find more printables, organizing tips, a book/product review or nothing at all.
  • Saturday’s – Email¬†– There will normally not be a post on Saturday but I would like to get into a better routine of sending out a bi-weekly email. That way, you won’t miss any new printables that become available on our Freebies page.
  • Sunday’s – no post¬†


Finally, many of you said I should offer a raffle, contest or challenge. This is a great idea and I have been trying to think of something cool like a listing challenge or some kind of journaling challenge. I will work on this and see what I can come up with. I would love to hear if you have some ideas

I would love to hear if you have an idea for a challenge or if you have a request for a printable. You can drop me a line using the Contact Me form or leave your reply in the comments below.

    • A reader survey is a really great idea! I learned so much about what my readers like and who they are. Everyone was so honest and let me know exactly what they liked and what they didn’t like about what I’ve been doing. I highly recommend creating your own and you get 10 questions for free with Survey Monkey.
