Now that Black Friday is over, maybe it’s a good time to give you the somewhat interesting results of my survey. For those of you who completed the survey, thank you!
Before we get to the survey, here’s a reminder about the Craftsy classes on sale until Monday for $19.99 – a real deal. I know you were busy on Thanksgiving Day when I posted Have I Got A Deal For You!?!.
Again, I highly recommend the window treatment class I took (above) – and for such a great price. I cannot explain how beneficial it is to see the tutorials demonstrated through video. I learned a few things, as well – like the incorrect names of some curtain panel posts – ha!
As I shared with you in my post about taking the survey, I was under the impression that I covered too many varied topics and I possibly needed to eliminate a couple (or a few). While the answers to all the questions are of great value to me, Question #5 answered the question concerning topics.
I was a little surprised that the painting projects ranked fairly low in favorites, but I wasn’t surprised about the low-ranked barn and outdoor posts. You may notice those barn pages disappearing soon.
Here are the results from each question – to see what others think and how it aligns with your own answers.

It was interesting to find that there’s a close correlation between your preferences and the percentage of posts I’ve written for each category – except maybe for the tablescapes. I had one request for more decorating posts. Most other answers under the “other” category were kind and supportive of things as they are.
What I learned about you:
You are easy-going and don’t mind overlooking a post that doesn’t interest you. Like me, many of you have varied interests. You really like the DIY posts, so I need to put more of an emphasis on those. The sewing tutorials interest many of you, so I should not back away from sewing projects, including the window treatments.
I really enjoy your comments and our conversations. You have always been very encouraging, and I thank you for commenting. I welcome more, so don’t be shy. 🙂
Thank you all again for reading and following along. You are the best!
