Well, the results from the survey are in, thank you so much to everyone who took the time to fill it out. Also, we have a winner! I’ve already emailed Cait her gift card (I am really working on getting better with being prompt, people!), so I thought I’d use this post to discuss the results from the survey.
Do you know what’s the main thing I figured out? People have a lot of different opinions. Pretty much if one person said they wanted to see more of a certain thing on Noveltea, then someone else said they wanted to see less of it. That’s good though, because it means I have quite the range when it comes to what Noveltea’s readers are interested in. That makes me happy because I have quite the range of what I’m interested in.
The survey was helpful, though, despite all the differing ideals. I discovered that y’all want to see more writing related posts. In 2014 y’all wanted to see more, then in 2015 you wanted to see less, so I guess in 2016 it’s up to more again. (A little over half of you voted on 3 out of 5 posts being writing related.) This is actually exciting because I have learned a lot about writing recently and I’m going to enjoy sharing it with y’all.
Also, over half of y’all said you would like it if I wrote another continuing story like I did with When Life Hands You Lymes. (Most of the rest said they didn’t care.) I’m still not sure what I’m going to do about a continuing story, but I am definitely keeping it in mind and trying to figure out if it’s feasible and if so, how I can make it happen. I would need a lot more story-structure than I did last time, so that would take a good amount of time at the beginning and I already have several projects I’m working on.
We had almost the same amount of answers regarding if I should make the posts longer or shorter, so I guess I probably won’t change that too much… I am working at setting a plan in monition to post at a more specific time in 2016 (a few people mentioned this would be helpful), so we’ll see how that works out.
All in all I’m quite pleased with the results and have tweaks I’m going to work in here and there to polish Noveltea’s posts up. If you have any questions or suggestions, just leave them in the comment section. Thanks and I hope you have a great weekend!
