I asked, you answered. First, thanks so much for filling out my survey. I was curious to see what you liked and didn’t like about the blog. And now I have some insight into what you all think:
Parenting-related topics beat the rest, with discipline and behavior at second and communicating with our kids at third. In general, you guys like to talk about parenting, which makes sense since that’s the main theme of this blog.
Two of the lowest ones—twins and work—can understandably not fare as high as the others considering these are circumstantial themes that not everyone can relate to. I’m also not surprised to see book roundups on the lower end since I publish these on Saturdays, one of my lowest-traffic days. Money topics also didn’t interest you, which is a shame because personal finance is one of my “hobbies.”
Overall, I’m glad that most of the posts I publish align with what people look forward to most about this blog.
I seem to have gotten right the number of times I publish posts…
…as well as the post length:
I was also pleased to see that my email newsletters are doing their job in getting these posts out to you. It’s no joke that email is the best way to never miss a post (sign up here), especially with social media’s strange algorithms:
Most of you are also new-ish to Sleeping Should Be Easy, having been here the last year or so:
And you also visit my site when I publish a new post:
Guest posts were dead even with half of you liking them and other half neutral. And with no one not liking them, looks like I’ll continue inviting guest posts regularly:
And my last question touches on one of my biggest goals: to write an e-book. Except before just jumping into a topic, I wanted to make sure I write about something you’d be interested in. And it looks like I’ll be writing about raising well-behaved kids:
In your responses, I also received suggestions, from the length of book round ups to how I phrase certain things. Many of you also wanted me to inject more personal and behind-the-scenes stories into the posts.
Thanks again for your responses. I had a ton of fun reading through the responses, learned what matters to you and how I can continue to improve.
