{Wedding Survey} What Do YOU Want?

So by the time y'all are reading this, I should be knee-deep in my new full-time job. I'll be yawning at 10am because even though I normally get up around 6am, being WOKEN up at 6am is a smidge different.

Around 11:30am, my stomach will start growling. If I'm not able to eat by noon, my blood sugar will drop and I'll be afraid I won't be able to concentrate. What if my stomach starts to growl? How embarassing it will be.

By 3:30pm? I'll be dead. I'll wonder what the hell I've done to myself. This first week back to a different kind of grind will be difficult. It will be welcomed, but hard.

So until I get myself organized, used to the new schedule and able to figure out this new everything, I'll probably cut back on my posts. I'm thinking a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule. Maybe not every day.

I'll be honest and tell you that this pains me. It bums me out. I feel like I owe my readers a post every day. This pain comes from what the "rules" on blogging are. It supposed to be every day. You must keep your readers fully engaged or you'll lose them. You must do this. You must to do that.

Huh.

It's not often that I do what I'm supposed to when it comes to bridal blogging. I like to think I pull the veil off (no pun intended) some of the bullshit that this industry tends to shove at brides. Maybe I just think I do this. Maybe I don't do anything special at all. I might just be another wedding blog. Have I been wasting my time these last almost THREE YEARS? Egads. How sorry a fact that would be.

But I don't really believe that. I know that there's been some good. We've had some laughs. The question is how to continue; to make it worthwhile for myself as well as readers, to make it better for folks who hate when I [insert thing you hate here].

So it's survey time. You get to tell me what you like, don't like and want more of. I've heard from other bloggers who have put these surveys out there and oh, the lamentations! People get mean. People get real. People also say nice things, but I've been warned to get some thick skin.

So y'all. Lemme have it. Please note that this is completely 100% anonymous. It's a GoogleDoc (hence the super-cheese wedding cake theme, but come ON, I had to use it!) and all it does it collect a time stamp and the answers to the questions below.

Hope the first day went well!!! Hint: Keep a baggie of almonds in your purse to guard against the hungries/stomach growlies.

I am getting AMAZING feedback on this y'all! Keep it coming! Even the "bad" comments are good to hear. So far, I'm SO HAPPY you guys are sharing! And those of you who are thinking I know who you are? I TOTALLY don't.

P.S. First day was LONG, but really good!

I keep granola bars and fruit leathers handy (in my office area, in my purse, in my car, etc) for the case of the hungries. It's a great way to tide you over until lunch/dinner! Glad the first day went well!

I wish more people would write blogs like this that are really fun to read. With all the fluff floating around on the internet, it is rare to read a blog like yours instead.Thanks for sharing!
