Do you remember when last year, you guys filled out the Veggie Mama Reader Survey?
That one where I banged on about pickles for half an hour?
Well, it was the first time I’d ever canvassed your honest thoughts about what I do here on the blog, and I was a little bit terrified. I like to think I’m pretty hardy enough to cop some criticism where necessary but opening those survey results knowing you had been very transparent with me was a little bit daunting. I have this thing where in scary movies I actually squint so I can see what’s going on but it’s a little bit blurry and therefore not as confronting.
I confess, dear reader, that’s how this badass read your answers to those questions.
Quickly, and squintily.
A bit like this really:
Except less unimpressed, and more with my heart in my throat.
Then after I’d scrolled through your thoughts as fast as I could to gloss over the bits that made my face go:
My face miraculously went:
But I was also so relieved I shut that thing down super fast and carried on with my day. I gave you a peek into some of the results here, but I was going to get all fancy with pie charts and shit and I never got around to it. But it taught me so much about what people think of what I do here (you get the humour (yay!) want more recipes (have tried to do more!) and one of you called me a dickhead. I love you for that!).
It’s now that time to point you in the direction of the 2015 reader survey and once again offer up my tender underbelly for your thoughtful comments. I may squint again (I’m the first to admit it’s been a weird year), but am so, so grateful that you care enough to read here, let alone fill out a form about it.
These questions still apply though:
What would you like to see here?
What can I help you with?
What sorts of recipes do you like?
And finally, can you do my laundry?
So thank you. Head here, take the survey, cross your fingers you’ve got $100 to drop at Booktopia. Can’t do none of this without y’all.
