The Poll Results

June 24, 2014

i'm not surprised by the poll results.  they fell where i thought they would, for the most part.  the humor posts (like those random tuesday lists) got the most votes.  which is good and it's also probably why you read here because if you don't have a sense of humor and can't appreciate totally random list making, i'm not sure how you found me and you're definitely in the wrong place.  they're my favorite to write and favorite to respond to comments on.  other humor related posts (mini rants, ways to avoid people) also got high marks.

also on the high end were posts about organizing, simplifying, and my debt free story/budgeting tips.  all of those go hand in hand if you ask me.  i'm definitely happy to post more tips in these areas - i love my clutter free lifestyle and i love being debt free even more.  and obviously, i organize like a madwoman.  i'm fine with that.

the lowest vote-getters were the party related posts, like top shot recipes, theme parties, cocktail cupcakes, and chicago posts.  i anticipated this because, since the name change last year, i've been doing less and less party posts and definitely less readers expect them anymore.  this is also good because it means i have to bake less cupcakes.  i really only like to make them for holidays anyway, not every month, so i'm happy!  and clearly lazy but whatever, cleanup is a pain and i like to keep my kitchen spotless.

the one thing that got just as many votes as humor posts - more personal posts.  which i kind of threw on the poll last minute to test it out.  i am surprised you want more personal posts.  not that you want them in general, because it's human nature to be nosy (sure sure, 'connect with the blogger' okay yeah... nosy.  polite terminology for nosy.  it's fine.) but surprised that you want them from me.  because i haven't offered many before (five?), so maybe they'll suck and also because my life and lack of deep thoughts aren't really all that interesting.  i work, i dream of leaving the law so i can just organize other people's things all day, i come home, i play with hawkeye (read: we watch netflix and people watch out the window), i spend a lot of time with john and a fair amount with my friends and my parents.  seems pretty boring when you write it out in black and white, but there it is.  so i'm thinking you all took 'more personal posts' to mean 'more photos of hawkeye' in which case, she says 'le duh' and i say 'you got it, dude.'


but, i'll give it a whirl.  stay tuned.

  8. People always love the personal posts - they want to see the girl behind the curtain. It's human curiosity at its best (read: nosiness).

  16. I find more "personal" posts are the most intersting. Not just because I'm nosy (I am), but it's nice to get a peek into someone's life.

  18. Humor is always a winner. People read blogs for entertainment and a way to break out of their normal humdrum life. Personal posts are also very entertaining. Lol.
