At first, I thought I'd just tell you the winner, but then I thought you might be like me and wonder how the results turned out and what others think about my blog (or blogs in general).

So I'll give you a summary...

~ 38 people took the survey!
~ 40% read through Google Reader, 21% come here directly, 18% read through e-mail, and a few come from various sources and links.
~ 63% read whenever I post (thank you!), 24% weekly, and a few less often.

Favorite types of posts?
~ Almost everybody said Chocolate!!
~ 2nd place:  Recipes
~ 3rd place:  Family
~ 4th place:  Faith
~ All of the above were chosen by half or more of survey-takers!
~ 5th place: Silly
~ 6th place: Decor
~ I was surprised to see that Reviews and Giveaways actually had several votes as favorite types of posts!
~  Least votes?  Buster the dog
     He is very sad...
But I'm pretty sure he'll get over it!  :)

~ Only 34% have linked up for Chocolate Fridays.
~ Other suggestions for linkups included recipes and homemaking.

Most annoying posts?
~ 1st place:  None (Yay!!)
~ 2nd place:  Long wordy posts
~ 3rd place:  Giveaways
~ 4th place:  Posts without pics
~ Only 1 or 2 chose others.
~ Nobody chose Very serious posts or Silly posts (yay again - LOL).

~ 33% Maybe
~ 28% No

Blog Design

~ 49% Clean
~ 38% User-friendly
~ 32% Don't change a thing

~ Suggestion of adding some kind of Recipe search bar.

What brings you back?
~ Me  :)
~ Chocolate
~ Recipes
~ Light-hearted/Humor

~ Lots of very sweet comments - thank you so much!!
~ People want relationships.  If they're coming by and commenting, they want me (and other bloggers I'm sure) to stop by their blogs occasionally and comment. (I will try to make time to do that more often!)
~ If people are linking up recipes here, they would like to see other readers coming by and commenting on their posts.  I can tell you that the yummy chocolate posts that get linked up here do deserve a look and a comment if you have a chance!

I suppose you want to know who the winner of the $5 Starbucks card is?
It's Brooke!
Congratulations Brooke!!

Thank you again for taking the time to complete the survey - it really meant a lot to me!  And please don't hesitate to send me your comments and suggestions anytime!

Have a wonderful day my friends!


  1. I loved all the stats my friend. It seems that you are stealing my followers. LOL!

    Big statistics show that if you meet a blogger in real life you have a friend for life size hugs to you!

    Love ya!

  2. Congrats to Brooke for being the winner! :)

    I knew that "you" would be the top reason people come back again and again!

    Love you,

  3. Great results! Congrats to the winner:-)

  4. WOW! You certainly got a lot of feedback! Hope you found it all helpful to you.
    Peace and blessings to your day!

  5. Hehehe, poor Buster! He looks quite flummoxed!
