Thank you to everyone who took my blog survey! I really enjoy doing these. For one thing, it allows me to hear from people who usually don't comment, it also allows me to know what you guys like reading on the blog. I will always post what I want to post about, and I don't make any major changes based on the responses, but it's good to know if you guys really like or don't like something. It makes it much more fun for me to write about things that I know you will enjoy reading.
So let's get to some of the responses!
^^^I put the 57 answer as a joke for my dad because he recently turned 57, but the joke's on me because he didn't even take my survey! I totally called him out on it. Lame.
^^^It's interesting that I have such a large percentage of people who are non-bloggers! Although I know a lot of my family and friends read my blog, so I guess that makes sense.
^^^I asked this question in my last blog survey and got a very similar response. About twice as many people read the comments as leave a comment. I find that so interesting! I read comments on blogs too, so I can relate. I find it interesting to see what other people are saying. Although sometimes I get into trouble because reading comments can make me grouchy. I would say discuss in the comments but let's be honest: less than 20% of you are going to do that.
^^^It seems I have a good number of people who have been reading for a while, so thank you! I take that as a compliment that you keep coming back. I probably wouldn't have kept blogging this long if it weren't for all of you!
I had 38 people share a prayer request, and I want you to know that I am honored to be invited to pray for you. I actually printed out all the requests and brought them with me on the plane to Saint Louis last month. After R fell asleep, I prayed through each one specifically and have continued to pray as they come to mind. I can't explain why things happen or what God's plan is, but I believe that prayer is important and that he hears our prayers.
^^^Who are you that don't like my videos???? You're dead to me. Also, can't stop won't stop making videos.

Ideas for Future Posts:
-Your good-looking husband (I WONDER WHO WROTE THIS.)
-More style posts! <--- You flatter and confuse me. I don't feel like I have enough style to write about style. I also don't have a full-length mirror in a well-lit room so...... don't hold your breath.
-Something embarrassing you've done. How about this.
-How marriage changes after kids. Maybe read this.
-A day in the life post. I did one in January. Maybe I should update it?
-I'd love to hear more about how you stay motivated.
-How SAHMs can support working moms and not make them feel alienated. <--- I love this so much and I've actually been thinking about this! Post to come soon hopefully.
-The US election. LOLOLOLOL. (That's me laughing so I don't cry.) #imwithnobody
-How do you cope with the anxieties of everyday life? <--- This is a good question and might make a good post. The short answer is: prayer and chocolate and lots of calls to my mother.
-How you monetize your blog. <--- Interesting! I don't do a lot obviously, but maybe a post with some tips and tricks?
-More running! <--- Guys, I'm trying. The struggle is still here and it's real. Especially once it gets darker and colder. I am a fair-weather outside runner.
-What you did after graduating college. <--- Interesting! Sort of a flashback post of sorts?
-More funny stories. <--- These are my favorites to write and yes when something funny happens I'll write about it!
So that's it for this round of survey questions. Thanks again for humoring me and being so kind. I always get nervous about asking for feedback because internet people can be rude, but you really are all so nice. I got some great ideas for future posts and am glad to know things you like to read about. Enjoy your week!
