2013 Reader Survey Results – and the Amazon Gift Card Winner!

2013 Reader Survey Results! | Very Culinary

by Amy Flanigan on October 19, 2013 · 12 comments

Happy Saturday, friends! The survey results are in! Did you even know I would be posting them? Initially, I wasn’t planning on it, but as a reader myself I would have been curious, so why not??!

I really enjoyed running a survey. When I decided to do one, a few of my blogger friends warned me that I better have thick skin, because in their experience, readers can be mean! So I put my big girl pants on, published the survey…and waited. Kleenex at the ready. HA. 

What I wasn’t expecting was all the kind words and compliments I was about to get! I had over 300 responses and everyone was SO nice. I used the Kleenex for happy tears. (Okay, and a few for sad tears – according to the numbers, my smoothie series, which I loved so so much, was a flop!)

Below are the specific results to the six questions I thought were most relevant to you. They’re followed by the general results of the remaining questions.

Thanks everyone for reading. You fill my heart!

What an awesome survey, I loved how you checked the pulse of your readers. Did you find the results helpful?

This survey was such a great idea! It’s good to see what your readers like/don’t like…but at the end of the day, people obviously like what you do already or they wouldn’t keep coming back for more :)

I guess so, and thank goodness! Thanks, Amy!

I always find surveys like this so intriguing…I feel like I have only a very vague concept of who my readers are and what they like/don’t like about the blog. Maybe I’ll have to do one of these!

And in my wholehearted opinion, i wouldn’t change a thing about your blog!

Sorry I missed the survey. Most of my responses would have been in the majority groups. But I am glad to have this chance to tell you that your blog is my fave! I don’t do Facebook so I’m telling you the old fashioned ry–you’re great. Don’t change a thing.


Amy @Very Culinary October 19, 2013 at 8:36 pm

Nothing wrong with old fashioned! And better late than never…I appreciate your comment so much, thank you!

Of course your readers weren’t mean! YOU are fabulous! And so is the blog. I enjoyed seeing the results of the survey.


Amy @Very Culinary October 19, 2013 at 8:36 pm

Aaaaah, Dani. Thank you so much! (((hugs)))

Didn’t expect you to post the results of the survey, so this was especially interesting. Thanks for sharing.
