Let's start the year out right!

I thought it might be kind of fun to have a little survey over here at FOTF.. I hope 2011 is a fantastic year for blogging personally, but it wouldn't be much if I didn't have you fun people to read it eh? At least I think so. Which brings me to this little ol' questionaire if you will so I can get to know you a little better. Fun times right? Maybe not but they could be fun, and it'll be interesting for my husband and I to read over later so if you could pretty pretty please copy and fill out this survey in the comments I'd adore you. 

  1. Who are you? Male/Female? Age? Location? Marital Status? Any kids? 
  2. How often do you read FOTF? Daily? Once a week? Monthly? When you have that moment right before you fall asleep and think "Hey, whatever happened to that super cool blog that I read that one time?"
  3. What are you favorite type of posts and why? Easy decorating touches, Holiday decorating, Big overhauls, Funny family stuff? Tutorials?
  4. Is there any topic you think I should blog about more?
  5. Do you have a blog? Share with the class your little home in blogland
  6. For fun, New years resolution, do you have one!?

So that's it! Monday I'll be back with our 2011 list of big projects to do in the FOTF house. So excited to share!! :)

1. Who are you? Male/Female? Age? Location? Marital Status? Any kids?

I'm Jill: female, 24, in Saskatchewan, Canada, have a long term boyfriend, no kids :)

2. How often do you read FOTF? Daily? Once a week? Monthly? When you have that moment right before you fall asleep and think "Hey, whatever happened to that super cool blog that I read that one time?"

I follow FOTF and just started using Google Reader, so I hope to stay on top of it a little better now. Now entirely sure my feelings on using Google Reader yet.

3. What are you favorite type of posts and why? Easy decorating touches, Holiday decorating, Big overhauls, Funny family stuff? Tutorials?

I like a little bit of everything. Tutorials are always great, but i love big transformations too (because in my current living situation I can't really do these myself) but I also like getting to know people by reading about their lives. Blogs are boring if the writer isn't "real"

4. Is there any topic you think I should blog about more?

Not that I can think of off the top of my head! :)

5. Do you have a blog? Share with the class your little home in blogland

I do have a blog. It's envirocraftiness.blogspot.com
It's a craft blog where i try to make environmentally friendlier crafts, upcycling where I can and such!

6. For fun, New years resolution, do you have one!?
I don't really make resolutions, but goals, yes. I really want to blog smarter this year and grow my readership! :)

This was fun! Hope you had fun reading it too! :) Happy New Year!

Laura, Female, almost 40, Hudson Valley, NY, married 16 years, two daughters age 10 and 8 who are fighting in the next room as I write this!

2.How often do you read FOTF? Daily? Once a week? Monthly? When you have that moment right before you fall asleep and think "Hey, whatever happened to that super cool blog that I read that one time?"
Whenever you post because I follow on Google Reader.

3.What are you favorite type of posts and why? Easy decorating touches, Holiday decorating, Big overhauls, Funny family stuff? Tutorials?

I think it is a balance of all of it, just bringing your perspective to the table (and most likely a fabulous table at that!)

4.Is there any topic you think I should blog about more? Can't think of anything that is "missing"

5.Do you have a blog? Share with the class your little home in blogland

Thank you teacher, my blog is findinghomeonline.blogspot.com. I am hopefully doing an overhaul in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!

6.For fun, New years resolution, do you have one!? Stop talking about my "dreams" and start taking ACTION!!!!!

Thanks and Happy New Year to you!

1. Female, married and does cats count for kids?

2. I read FOTF whenever a new post pops up in Google Reader.

3. I like most posts.

4. Nope, none that I can think of. You should blog about what YOU want to do - the things you are passionate about - not what others want.

5. I do have a blog

6. I wrote about some on my blog. By the way, my word for the year is "do" (not mention on the blog). Some synonyms are: Make, create, carry through... So, I guess that is fitting since there are so much I'd like to do this year! Just do it! LOL. :-D

2.How often do you read FOTF? Daily? Once a week? Monthly? When you have that moment right before you fall asleep and think "Hey, whatever happened to that super cool blog that I read that one time?"

Everyday I check my blogroll on my phone and read any updates from the blogs I follow. I did see this the day you posted it, but it's much easier to respond on the computer than phone, so it's taken me a bit to find the time to log on here "the long way"!!!

3.What are you favorite type of posts and why? Easy decorating touches, Holiday decorating, Big overhauls, Funny family stuff? Tutorials?

I haven't read one of your posts (or anyone else's for that matter) that I didn't enjoy reading! But here is a question that I don't think you've covered: When you move (if you ever had, I'm a new follower so I haven't read every single one of your posts) how do you switch up your decor to look different in the new house? I'm tempted to just put everything where it basically is now. For example: the clock and two hanging pieces I have above my couch now would go about our couch at the next place...I don't want to have everything just the same in a different house...you know what I mean? I'm just not sure how to switch it up since our furniture will all be the same and color schemes will be too, but I'd like a "fresher" look to my decorations:) Help me, if you can!

4.Is there any topic you think I should blog about more?

No new ideas here:)

5.Do you have a blog? Share with the class your little home in blogland

www.dallasmichael.blogspot.com it was originally started to keep our family in Oklahoma updated with Dallas and his life, but I'm thinking it's going to turn more into a family/house/crafting blog....

6.For fun, New years resolution, do you have one!?

I don't usually do resolutions, so I like to call these life changes since I intend to keep them forever...volunteer more (or at all since I haven't really in the past), blog more, scrapbook more, no fried fast foods, learn how to use photoshop (don't even know how to get started!), learn more about blogging and how to gain more followers, and shead the rest of my baby weight:)

Thanks for the fun survey, keep up the great blogging!!

All of the above, seriously! I love when I read a blog and they post about their family stuff as well.

ourveryblessednest.blogspot.com - I'm really just starting out... and there's not much going on in the way of tutorials or DIY, or makeovers. Mostly, just family stuff.
6.For fun, New years resolution, do you have one!?
Mine is to take a photo a day for the whole year, I'll be posting them on my blog. Haven't posted the first few yet, but I have taken them. And just blog for us to be able to remember these wonderful times that go by far too quickly!

1-Who are you? Male/Female? Age? Location? Marital Status? Any kids?

I am Stephanie. I am 22 and from Michigan. I am married & we have a 3 year old little boy! (not that I can really call him little anymore because he is more then half my height lol)

2-How often do you read FOTF? Daily? Once a week? Monthly? When you have that moment right before you fall asleep and think "Hey, whatever happened to that super cool blog that I read that one time?"

I check in at least a couple times a week.

3-What are you favorite type of posts and why? Easy decorating touches, Holiday decorating, Big overhauls, Funny family stuff? Tutorials?

I love all of your posts but my favorite are the funny family stuff, tutorials, and big overhauls. We bought our first house a year ago, so I love looking at the things you do & getting ideas!

4-Is there any topic you think I should blog about more?

Not really

5-Do you have a blog? Share with the class your little home in blogland

I don't have a blog, yet. Too busy with working & school & raising my son. But it is something I would like to do someday.

6-For fun, New years resolution, do you have one!?

Trying to exercise more, my friend and I are starting Yogalaties. That should be intersting! lol

Lauri said...

1. I'm a Christian woman who loves Jesus. I just turned 40 in December. I live in San Diego and have been married for 15 years (well, it'll be 15 years in 3.5 weeks but I'm going with it...). We have two boys, ages 6 and 8.

2. Well, I'd like to say I read at least weekly. But, seeing as though you posted this on the first and I'm finally reading it on the 10th, that may be debatable. I read as often as I can ;)

3. I like the kind of posts that I can copy...and do it quickly. I love to see lots of major overhauls people have done but that doesn't really inspire me to just "do" something. I love quick and easy decor ideas, crafts and tutorials. But the other stuff is cool too.

4. Not that I can think of...but then again, I'm a fairly new reader of blogs in general - so I probably wouldn't know.

5. Oh goodness no. The idea of having to come up with something remarkable to post online gives me the heebie jeebies. That and having to photograph things. I'm not great with the camera. I mean, I know how to use it...but I just don't actually use it.

6. Well, of course I'm trying to get off the 3ish pounds I've gained over the holidays. And then there's the organizing that needs to happen. Of course, it will probably be well into the year before that's accomplished...but I'm okay with that. So really, I think my goal is to enjoy time with my family. My kids are growing fast and I don't want to miss it.:)
