Since my blog is turning a stunning five years old in just merely two weeks, I thought I would take this opportunity to ask you readers about what you have liked the most about my blog so far. This, so I can plan better the future of my blog. The birthday, which is a true personal milestone for me, will perforce bring some changes to the blog so I would like to hear your thoughts on what direction the blog should take. I started out having no themes at all for this blog, but eventually I noticed that I was always writing about seven themes: Helsinki, inspiration, outfit, new in, interior, travel and work. Later on, I created these tags to help you readers to easier find blog posts of your interest. So this blog post is definitely dedicated to you readers, and I hope you'll use your voice to influence the blog's future.
So without further ado, I would like to ask you why you read this blog? Is there a specific theme that brings you back to it? Or do you like the mix of topics? What has been your favorite blog post out of my almost 600 posts so far?
I hope you can appreciate that my blog has developed over the years thanks to you readers. The feedback I have received from you has transformed this blog into something I am very proud of today. I have loved all the comments I have got concerning the music on the blog, the layout, the commenting functonality, the photos,the watermarks, the background, the fonts, the pages, the tags - you name it! I have the best readers because you are so active!
I've grown so much thanks to this blog! I think there might be hundreds of ways to reflect on that, but I always like to use my physical transformation as a symbol of that because I've physically changed so much during the time I've been writing this blog!
Some of you have already mentioned that you would like to read more about my master studies. So it might be that I will add a tag/category called school, even though I study only part-time, aside my work.
I have also been thinking about introducing more opinion polls, discount codes on different websites and maybe giveaways on the blog. What do you think about that?
How many of you follow my blog also on Facebook and/or Instagram? What kind of status updates and photos would you like to see there? Right now the Facebook page has been something I've updated on a daily basis, with quotes and fun news that have caught my attention during the day. I've also shared my mood of the day there. I know some of you readers don't have Facebook, so I would gladly hear what you think about this.
On Instagram I've showed some pictures from "behind the scenes": more everyday photos than on the blog that is.
I've also thought that I would stop using GFC, and ask all my blog readers to follow me on Bloglovin. What do you think about that? How many of you already follow me through Bloglovin? Is that the way you prefer to read blogs?
I already want to thank all of you readers for your comments, as this is one of the most important blog posts I've written. After all: "Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards".
