What Do You Want?

by jessicaturner on June 12, 2009

Right now I am working with Danielle on a total redesign of my blog. We are talking navigation bar, new name, new colors… the works. I am really excited about it. This is something I have been thinking about, doodling about and praying about for months.

Where do I want this blog to go?

What kind of content do I want to write?

What do my readers seem to enjoy the most?

I have a pretty good idea of the answer to these questions, but I want to hear from you. What brings you to this blog? What do you like to read? What types of giveaways do you like?

I can tell you that I will continue to include content about the following:

  • crafting/scrapbooking posts
  • parenting
  • talk about faith
  • reviews/giveaways
  • ways to be frugal/deals/shopping
  • Elias pictures

Let me know your thoughts! I look forward to reading your feedback and know it will shape this blog in the months and even years to come.

Oh, and if you aren’t a follower of this blog, consider becoming one so you don’t miss the exciting changes that are happening soon (click on the followers box on the left-hand side).

Have a great day!

Everything you listed is why I visit your blog! I love your writing style, your ideas, your "love it/hate it" posts, and most of all, seeing your sweet Elias – he's just so cute, and my toddler loves looking at your site with me. :) Thanks for sharing your family and ideas.

I most enjoy reading your personal stories aboout parenting, your faith, and your everyday life. I enjoy the pictures of Elias and also the occasional scrapbook layout. I am not really a fan of frequent product reviews or giveaways, though I did enjoy your love it or leave it posts as they seemed very much from the heart.

I don't even know you but you do have an adorable little son. I so enjoy watching him grow up. What I love about your blog is your new ideas….I just never know what I am going to find here. It could be about Elias, your marriage, a new find, a cute way of taking pictures, a video….you keep us all coming back for more.

Hi, I found you via Angie many many moons ago and have enjoyed following along with your life. I love your blog as a whole, so whatever you end up going with will be fabulous!
Have fun with the blog makeover! :)

I'd love to see more of you and Matthew! Although, I love Elias more lol! x


Kelley June 12, 2009 at 5:52 pm

I love your blog! All of the things that you listed is why I read your blog. I love sharing ideas and tips on parenting.

What I like about your blog layout today is that it is simple. Some blogs go 'overboard' and it becomes hard to read. For example: They have a crazy back ground with crazy fonts with crazy colors.

I really enjoy your love it or leave posts. I have found them to be very helpful.

Not a big giveaway fan. Your blog feels less 'personal'. Plus I don't win…maybe I will change my mind if I actually win :)

I don't scrapbook (wish I did). I mainly visit because I think Elias is adorable and I love to read about his latest developmental milestone. I am guilty of visiting your husbands blog to see what Elias is up to. I like that he posts videos and I enjoy his humor.

Hope I gave some good input. Bottom line is that I will continue to enjoy your blog every day. I look forward to the new look!

I would LOVE to have more scrapbooking info/pictures. I miss seeing the cool pages and projects you did a few years ago!


Angela June 12, 2009 at 10:35 pm

Your list works for me.

I visit your blog for the pictures of Elias. I wish you would post a photo/video of him every day. He just warms the cockles of my heart!


Brooke June 12, 2009 at 11:59 pm

I love it all. I like your variety, parenting tips and experiences, scrapbook posts, etc. I've had a few issues loading your site on my browser lately, 100% sure it's an issue on MY end!! I look forward to the new look.

Hey Jess,

I'm a long time follower and love the blog. I'm not a huge fan of the giveaways as well. I echo the previous sentiments and it's not why I read. I've also had trouble loading your page in the past few months. I do love your stories about life, marriage, parenting, etc. It's what keeps me coming back and I don't think you will ever change that :) Thanks for blogging and being so real with us.

Jessica…this is Mom….I really only want to see Elias….but that is not what everyone wants but truthfully I love to coming to your blog because it is like reading a mini magazine…full of mommy topics (ALL) on a daily basis and then getting everyones views…its fun to see what others have done or like/dislike…and I can jump on and tune in to the issues anytime…even Midnight.
I love the good/bad product reviews…lots new since you were in diapers….
not sure if my opinion counts..Love you Oodles Mom


That's Who I Am June 13, 2009 at 2:07 pm

Jessica, I love the honesty on your blog. I have been hooked to your blog for a few months and read it daily. I enjoy everything that you write and look forward to your new post everyday. I don't have any comments on what I would like to see more of, because I love everything you already do! Thanks for being such an awesome blogger!


Lauren Kelly June 13, 2009 at 2:50 pm

Seriously, there's nothing I would change about your blog. I can't wait to see the new look. I love hearing about Elias and your adventures as a mom :)


gitz June 13, 2009 at 11:52 pm

I'm pretty easy… I already love everything about you, so I'd just like more of the same. :)


The Rowe Family June 14, 2009 at 1:43 am

Hi Jessica,

Love your blog, I came here I think the night you were giving birth via Angie's blog, and I keep coming back because I think Elias is the cutest kid on the block, and I've loved wathcing him grow. I also love your approach on parenting. Your down to earth nature, and your faith principals. Can't wait to see the new layout!!! Emily


The Rowe Family June 14, 2009 at 1:46 am

LOL, I was reading some of the other comments and had to laugh, because I too will visit your Husband's site to see Eliase too, how funny! However, in my defence, I think MPT is a very talented writer and I seriously enjoyed CHURCHED!!!! Thanks guys, you're great!


Kelsey June 15, 2009 at 6:42 pm

I love everything about your blog. I'm a scrapbooker and would love to see more of your projects and I like to see your photography as well (gives me ideas). My youngest is the same age as Elias, so I love to see him and where he's at, what he's doing, etc. (And he is just so darn cute!) And I love your tips and questions and such. Your blog just feels so personal. I love that. I like the giveaways, but that's not why I read:) Can't wait to see the new look!


Rachel June 17, 2009 at 4:35 am

I came here first through Angie at Bring the Rain. I keep coming because I love your style, your zest for life, your love for your family and I enjoy reading what you've written.

I would really like you to continue sharing about your scrapbooking journey, etc. I used to scrapbook but never felt I was very good at it. I always wanted to do all the "stuff" so I never got any pages done because I didn't have the time.

Now I have 4 children, tons of pictures but none in albums for us to look at. It's no fun all huddled around the computer viewing our photographs there. I'm determining to start scrapbooking sometime in the next year.
