white_square_with_question_markSo I’ve been thinkin’ – I know, it can be dangerous. I’ve been thinking about the things I write about, the things I never get around to writing about, the amount of time I spend writing, the amount of time I SHOULD spend writing and how to balance all those things out.

Whenever I get into a time crunch, I often end up just participating in a few carnivals (throw up a menu, a tackle and a wfmw tip) and that’s it. If I do that too often I feel like I’ve turned my blog into fluff – nothing thought provoking or entertaining. It would be a lot easier for me to write “real” articles if I just wrote them instead of the fluffy posts, but then I think there’s a balance there, too. Light-hearted fluff posts are good, too. Besides, they keep bringing in new people to meet. ; )

So I go roundy roundy in my brain about how I want to balance these and how I want to shape the content output on my blog.

I mean, yeah, it’s my blog, I can write what I want to write. But if I get boring then it’s going to be a whole let less fun for you and me both. ; )

So it got me to wondering what’s going on in the minds of my readers. So won’t you tell me? I’d love it if you answered a few polls for me, but you can also leave a comment if you want to give more input. I think it would help me with some decisions if I knew more about y’all – don’t you think?

For Poll#1, tell me, of all the regular things I participate in, which ones do you enjoy reading here at my blog?

For Poll #2: Suppose I got really good at managing my time and sticking to my schedule, and posted several things a day — but probably for different catgories. Say on a Monday I posted my menu plan, some homeschool links and a funny story about my kids. Your feed reader (or email inbox) is probably full so I hesitate to throw too much at you, it seems sorta selfish. So tell me…

And finally, and you don’t have to answer this one but after all, it IS anonymous! 🙂
I’m curious to see what my readership looks like. Maybe you aren’t ALL 30-ish housewives with three kids. ; )

Thanks so much, y’all! You have no idea how much this will help me. You’re the bestest. 🙂

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
