2012 Follower Survey Results

{ ++ } My reader/follower survey is officially over and I wanted to, in brief, share the results with y'all, and the changes that will be made here at Once Upon a Prologue.  Nothing drastic, but I'm changing a few priorities and such!

Memes:  Most everyone wanted to see less memes.  So from now on, In My Mailbox will be done once a month (unless I just get inundated with books and need to do once twice a month), Waiting on Wednesday will be done no more than twice a month instead of every week, and Top Ten Tuesday will be done once a week - my ONLY weekly meme.  Teaser Tuesday and Why I Love Wednesdays will not be done - the latter was not a popular meme and the former, while enjoyable, started feeling like a chore.

Cover reveals: Readers wanted less cover reveals.  So I won't be hosting any of those for the foreseeable future.   I might consider doing, once a month, a spotlight read on the new release I am most excited for or something like that if there is interest. 

Reviews: Readers wanted more reviews!  YAY, since I LOVE posting reviews.  For now, I am going to aim to post 2 reviews a week, 3 if I can ever get THAT caught up.  : )

Giveaways:  People were a bit split - some prefer a specific book for giveaway (like ARCs, etc), while others prefer a "book of your choice" type giveaway.  So I will be offering more of the latter, along with a few ARC giveaways. 

Original features: Most everyone is in favor of my features - Guest Who, Once Upon a Blogger, etc.  I will run those as long as there is interest!

Follower interaction: this is perhaps the most important.  By far everyone suggested discussion posts as the best way to increase follower interaction, so shortly I'm going to start a semi-regular discussion post - probably once every other week or so.  Feel free to comment on this post or shoot me an email with a topic YOU would like to discuss.  I may use my "letter to me" upcoming feature, or I may run that one AND discussion posts.  I'll be trying out some new things.  :)

{ ++ } Finally, I just want to say that I received some amazingly beautiful comments on my blog - and me - which I did not at all expect.  So thank you VERY much for all the love and support.  I truly adore my blog and the blogging community, which means all of y'all.  I always always want my blog to be a fun place for y'all to come hang out and want to visit again and again.  I try to visit as many blogs as I can, but if I haven't come by yours in awhile, leave me a link on one of the memes we both do, and I'll hop right over!  I am always striving to improve and I think 2012 is going to be a GREAT year here at Once Upon a Prologue!
