Last week I sent out a survey to my email subscribers to find out what you wanted to see on Chic Creative Life.
I’ve been trying to figure out what content resonates, and what would be really helpful to my audience now. This blog has gone through many iterations, and I wanted to make sure it is aligned with what my readers want!
….And when I saw the results, boy was I surprised! Check them out below:
So it seems people want to read about, in order of number of votes, 1. Clothing & Jewelry DIY Tutorials, 2. Sewing and Patterns, 3. Home DIY Tutorials, and 4. Chic Living. Followed closely by Budget Living, Healthy Recipes, and Blogging as a Business topics. I was actually not surprised there were more requests for home DIY’s and chic living advice (since so many of us are home right now)…but I was definitely surprised there wasn’t more interest in DIY men’s shirt makeovers! Considering I’ve been putting a ton of time into it…these results are definitely eye-opening.
I want to thank everyone who took the survey, this is really helpful!
I’m going to work to shift my content more towards what the majority of my readers are wanting.
If you haven’t taken the survey yet and would like to weigh in, you can still do so here:
Projects I’m working on.
Currently, I’m working on a ton of things, and they’ve all been at various stages of completion for awhile. I was pretty busy this week with stuff from Lil Tot’s school, job-searching, and general organization, so I’ve been putting these projects off.
From top, counterclockwise: vinyl Goth-style Bunny Bag still in pieces, bronzed leaf head garland, silky polka-dot scallop shorts, Tiny Crosses Necklace and Dangle Cross Earrings for my Etsy shop (haven’t photographed or listed yet), DIY Vita Fede ring that doesn’t look as nice as I’d like. I’m not sure whether to deem it a FAIL and scrap it, or forge on. Anyway.
I also didn’t end up posting a DIY Roundup this week for a couple reasons: one, I just didn’t get to it, and two, the number of submissions for my DIY Roundups is slowly tapering off.
This makes me think that it’s not something that you guys want to read about here – so I’d like to hear what you really think of it!
Thanks so much!

It was very weird not posting yesterday – believe me, I wanted to! – but I was up late finishing my latest tutorial for Threadbanger, which I’ll be reposting here soon. (Sunday-Monday-Tuesday mornings are always taken up by Threadbanger stuff, so I have trouble keeping up with this blog on those days.)
Anyway, along the lines of what I wrote yesterday, I wanted to put a poll out there for you guys, and really get some feedback on what you want to see here in the weeks to come. I have to overhaul this site and I’d love to hear what you really think!
So first: What do you want to read here? (You can choose as many answers as you like!)
And secondly, please tell me what doesn’t interest you (again, please choose multiple answers):
Finally (and I know this is long, please bear with me!) I have some new ideas that I’d like to throw out there and see if you’re interested in any of them. (Choose as many as you like!)
Thank you so much for your time and feedback…I really want to create content that’s tailored for you guys and your opinions are crucial to how I decide to overhaul this site. If you have any comments that you couldn’t add to the poll for whatever reason, please leave them in the comments section!
