enough about me

March 4, 2010

let’s hear about YOU
allie recently did a “who are you?” post, leading a staggering number of readers to come out of the woodwork. while i know i don’t have the readership she has, it got me wondering how blog audiences differ demographically. so: who is reading?

how old are you?surveys

you don’t even have to identify yourself — even just an age would be interesting. [google readers: the polldaddy survey widgets are not viewable — just click through to the post or the survey link to see the choices + vote!]

i aim to please!
yes, i blog for me. it’s an outlet, a release, and a processing mechanism for me. i learn a lot by writing! but i also learn a TON from you, and it is your comments that truly keep me dedicated to posting every day. i’m always interested in what makes one blog absolutely magnetic while others languish out there alone. while i have been very happy to maintain a loyal set of readers (and luckily did not seem to lose anything with the name change!) this site lies somewhere between those extremes!

i’d love to know: what would you like to see more of? what brings you here, and keeps you coming back? are you disappointed or thrilled when you see another post dedicated to the latest crop of anthro treasures? i know there are certain topics which really draw me in to certain sites, so i am guessing this is similar for you. you can write in an answer if none of my choices appeal to you:

i would love to see more:trends

i’m really looking forward to seeing your responses. i’ll be back tomorrow with a ‘real’ post — tailored to audience preferences, of course.

    A few more months and I would have had to check a different age bracket!

    I&#39ll come out of the woodwork to say that I like your blog for the hodgepodge. You never know quite what you&#39re going to get, but everything I read is super-well thought out and – dare I say it – charming.

    Sarah, OK, I&#39ll de-lurk. I don&#39t think I&#39ve ever commented here before. I&#39m kind of shy that way 🙂 and never know how to avoid seeming stalker-ish.

    Your blog is often one of the first I read in my Reader, though, as we have many common interests and aims, and it challenges/encourages me to see how you manage you time/goals.

    I responded to the polls but had a hard time choosing what I want you to write more about, as I really do enjoy all that you write. I guess I relate least to the fashion stuff as I am less fashionably-minded than you, but I enjoy learning and exploring new (to me) things from that topic as well.

    Just thought I&#39d take the opportunity to say hi…. Hope you&#39re having a better week this week than last!

    I rarely comment, but I thought I should since your blog is one of my favourites!

    Like others have mentioned, I like the variety of topics explored in your blog. I find your blog (and you!) relatable because we share common interests (ie: running, medical/healthcare field, anthro love, and sometimes unorthodox work schedules) and it&#39s refreshing to read about your balanced approach to these different facets of your life.

    I follow a couple healthy living type blogs and I find my interest in them sometimes waxes and wanes, because they often lack that sort of introspection and… mindfulness (also it gets a bit boring looking at photos of oatmeal!).

    What a fantastic idea to do these polls! I love how there is so much variety in your posts. Antro, medicine, organization, food, health… it&#39s so different from the rest! Plus your posts are so easy to read and there&#39s always something that makes me chuckle 🙂

    This is a good idea. I didn&#39t vote in the second poll though. I like that your blog has such a mix, so keep everything!

    Followed you for a while, but have been quite slack in commenting as I&#39ve been SO behind in reading (just caught up with 300+ blogs in my reader). I love the variety to your blog, but really love reading about your pediatric residency experiences (I am a soon-to-be PNP).

    Fun polls! Love your blog 🙂
