When The Brit and I started writing our blog, we went into it with the idea that it was going to be something fun we did once in a while. With your help, our readership and popularity have exploded. We owe that all to you.
Lately, we have been really thinking about our blog for this upcoming year. We are going to be changing a few things and so we thought we would give you the opportunity to have your say, and to give us advice and suggest your ideas.
Is our blog easy to navigate for you? What do you think of the general layout? Is there anything that is confusing or something you feel could be better about it?
We have gone from a 5 day a week format every single week to a 3 day a week one. What do you think? Do you like fewer articles? Would you like more? How important is it for you if we only write on certain days? Does that change your readership?
How about the length of the articles? Do you feel like we say too much about the places we visit? Not enough?
Information on the articles: Are we giving you the stuff you want to know? Are we too technical in the language we use? Are we not technical enough?
What kind of places are you interested in hearing about? As time goes on, we will be posting more of our travel escapes. In fact, we are leaving tomorrow morning for some fun in the Napa Valley.
What about local places? Would you like to hear a mix of expensive and cheap eats, or one more than the other? Do you have any suggestions for us of places to review?
We are thinking about writing a recipe and cooking section of the blog with a brand new contributor. What are your thoughts on that?
Photos: Would you like to see more of my travel photos, as well as my local photos, along with the stuff that I post in our articles?
Links to restaurant and winery events: Would you like us to share those with you for the local area? Would those be good for days we don’t write a post?
We don’t want to overwhelm you with our articles and clog up your feed. Since we write for you to read, it is important that we know what it is you want.
We’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas. Please leave us comments so we can get it right. If you don’t want to comment on Facebook, please feel free to email me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to all of you for your support and love. The Brit and I will keep on writing if you keep on reading.
