The reader survey results are in!
I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to fill out the survey. I was blown away by the thoughtful, kind (and sometimes hilarious) responses. All of this information is so helpful to me in planning the future of this blog.
So what does this mean for you?
Travel, travel & more travel
I was thrilled to see that the Weekend Travel Guides are your favorite type of post to read. Travel is such an important part of my life, and I love sharing my photos and tips with you all.
In addition to the Weekend Travel Guides, you can expect to read more about packing light, traveling with kids, fitting travel into a busy lifestyle, and how to travel in style.
Minimalism & simple living
You all seem to be as interested in simple living as I am, which makes me so happy! 85% of you said that you would like to see more posts on minimalism, simplifying, and organizing. This is something that has been a passion of mine since I was a nerdy kid organizing my pencil drawer. I am so excited to start exploring these topics more on the blog.
Photography tips & tricks
Many of you commented that seeing the travel photos are your favorite. And there were a ton of requests for some tutorials on travel photography.
Ask and you shall receive my friends!
You can look forward to a whole series on travel photography coming soon. It will cover everything from cameras and lenses to editing and organizing all of your amazing photos.
Everyday life, house tours, style, challenges, parenting, schools…you want to know what life is like as an expat. Done and done. I will be pulling back the curtain and showing you the good, the bad, and the ugly of our life abroad. (Spoiler: It isn’t nearly as glamorous as you may think!)
The Weekly Digest
This is something I have been thinking about for months, and I was so encouraged by everyone that was interested.
The clunky old feedburner I have been using to deliver new posts by email hasn’t been working very well for a long time. (Pictures not showing up, weird formatting, and other frustrations.) I know a lot of you really like receiving posts by email so that you never miss anything, but I have finally found a better way.
Starting this week, you can sign up to receive a short and sweet weekly digest email. It will include links to new posts, as well as other fun perks that you won’t find anywhere else. Just one little email a week. Because no one likes a cluttered inbox!
Enter your name and email below and you will get your first weekly digest delivered to your inbox this weekend.
You all had some amazing questions! Many of which deserve an entire post of their own. (Or even multiple posts.) I will be doing a FAQ post next week covering the questions that I can answer in a paragraph or two. If you have any other questions that you would like covered, feel free to leave them in the comments below.
Thank you again, for your responses, your input, and your continued support of this blog!
