We Need YOUR Input!

Happy Friday, blog friends!

Today I have a different sort of post for you all. I'm in need of YOUR suggestions and thoughts for the 2012 blog calendar.  We are already in the process of making some changes here, but I wanted to take this time to ask you all some questions. After all, I want to be sure I'm bringing you posts that you'll enjoy/ be inspired from and possibly learn from as well.

1) What are your favorite posts on the blog?
  • Product Spotlights
  • Challenges
  • Blog Spotted Cards
  • Various Cards/ Projects
  • Other (please explain)
2) How often do you visit the DeNami blog?
  • Multiple times a day
  • Once a day
  • 2-3 times a week
  • Once a week
  • Rarely
3) Are there things you'd like to see more of?
  • More posts
  • More Videos
  • More Idea Sheets
  • Giveaways
  • Other (please explain)
4)  Do you participate in our challenges?
  • Yes
  • No (please let us know why)
  • Occasionally
5) Do you like a wide selection on cards each week, or do you prefer theme weeks?
6) Are there things we currently don't have on the blog that you would like to see? 
7) Are there posts we have that you aren't crazy about? If so, which ones?

I would GREATLY appreciate your input/ ideas/ suggestions on all of these questions. Next year, I want to make it a super awesome year here on the blog. We have had a blast in 2011, but we want to make 2012 even better! :) 

Thank you all so much for taking the time to help us out.  In closing, I want to remind you all that we have a pretty fabulous giveaway (actually, two) up for grabs. The deadline to enter is Sunday, so be sure to let all your friends know!


Have a GREAT weekend, DeNami friends. I'll see you on Monday for our brand new challenge! It's a sketch challenge, so as long as you have one DeNami stamp, you can play along!

#1 - All of the above but if you make me choose - Challenges and Blog Spotted Cards.

#2 - Multiple times a day

#3 - Videos, Idea sheets, and ummm yeah Giveaways are always nice (but not my main reason for visiting)

#4 - Occasionally

#5 - Both - I like the variety of wide selection but I like multiple ideas of theme weeks - so I would say a good mix of these two (if you are asking my opinion which - you are :)...hahaha)

#6 - Nope - I am a happy camper in Denami Land!

#7 - Ditto - I am a happy camper in Denami Land!

1- Product Spotlights, Challenges, Blog Spotted Cards, Various Cards/Projects.
2- I usually read blog post through google reader and see stuff that's posted on fb. So probably to go to the actual blog would be 3-5 times a week?
3- I think everyone loves giveaways, but I also think ya'll do your fair share of them=)
4- Yes, most of the time. Every now and then I can't fit it into my schedule.
5- I like both. I like to see the variety of ideas with the theme weeks but at the same time just randomness is nice too=)
6- I think you are doing a great job with the blog. The only thing I can think of is maybe having a "featured stamper or featured designer". Where you have a challenge and the winner of that challenge is a featured stamper for the next challenge. Sort of like a guest designer, but it's only for the next challenge, not the whole month. (just an idea)
7- I think you are doing great. I enjoy the posts and the blog=)

1) Favorite blog posts are: Product Spotlights, Blog Spotted Cards, Various Cards- I love seeing DeNami examples- inspires me to shop :)

2) I visit the blog once a day

3) I'd like to see more videos, idea sheets and samples for inspiration. LOVE seeing other ideas!

4) I've done a challenge or two, not very often though

5) I like themed weeks that relate to the seasons/holidays/time of year like you do now

6) I would like to see more of your designers crafting spaces- how they store stamps, i enjoyed those posts previously. would like to know how they organize their cards they create too!

I loved the lawn fawn cross company partnership, would like to see more of that if possible with companies.

I'd love to see more videos, maybe with special guests like the design team members or LSS owners :)

1) What are your favorite posts on the blog?

I especially enjoy Challenges and Product Spotlights. And the DeNami Blog Hops are so much fun!

2) How often do you visit the DeNami blog?

Currently I've been swamped getting back into the groove after returning to teaching this year. However, during the summer and when I am on a saner schedule, I visit the DeNami Blog at least daily. If I am in the middle of a project or considering what adorable DeNami products to order, I visit multiple times.

3) Are there things you'd like to see more of?

I really enjoy your blog. It is aesthetically pleasing - absolutely darling - and there really isn't anything I would suggest changing. If I had to request anything... Maybe more videos? More idea sheets?

4) Do you participate in our challenges?

Yes, when my schedule allows.


5) Do you like a wide selection on cards each week, or do you prefer theme weeks?

Both!

6) Are there things we currently don't have on the blog that you would like to see?

... not that I can think of...

7) Are there posts we have that you aren't crazy about? If so, which ones?

Not any! DeNami Design has one of the cutest blogs out there - the perfect balance of friendly banter, useful information, and beautiful designs! :o)

#1 too hard to choose...all of them are really

#2 minimum once a day, usually more...

#3 I think you have a great mix already. If I had to pick something...videos for sure...always like to see how others do things differently from me and to learn something new

#4 YES!! I heart the challenges and seeing the inspiration / eye candy from others

#5 I'm kinda liking the whole theme thing you've had going on lately. I like that you've mixed it up like this.

#6 Really, this blog is perfect. Maybe tidbits on what inspires you and Nami. Pictures of the shows Nami travels to.

#7 What a funny girl...there are none!

Scrapalajen said...

1) Product Spotlights,Blog Spotted Cards,Various Cards/ Projects

2) Once a day

3) More Videos and more Idea Sheets. Giveaways too:-)

4) No. I don't own a Denami stamp since international shipping costs more than the actual stamp.

5) Both!

6) Places/shows Nami goes to.

7) None.

#1 I love all of the posts because they provide so much inspiration. I really like Product Spotlights because it is fun to see how each designer used the same stamp and acheived completely different looks!

#2 At least once a day.

#3 It would be fun to see technique tips such as all the many uses for the Three Line Border!

#4 Yes-although now with only one challenge a month, procrastinating has become my biggest challenge!

#5 I like both. Theme weeks are great during the holiday seasons because sometimes I run out of ideas! It is always good to get fresh inspiration.

#6 It would be great if you had a link to the layouts of the previous sketch challenges. Sometimes I just need to give my mojo a poke and you have had some great sketches!

#7 Haha! The announcements of the giveaway winners! My name is never among them! =P (but seriously, I wouldn't change anything!)

1) Product Spotlights

2) 2-3 times a week

3) So hard to choose....I'd have to say:
More Videos AND More Idea Sheets

4) No - I really wanted to build up my Denami Design
stamp portfolio - allowing me versatility; now that
I have done so, I'm ready and raring to go!

5) I would prefer theme weeks. Especially when it
comes to the holidays...

6) Hmm...MORE STAMPS!!!

7) Nothing really stands out...

1. Are there any posts I don't like? No way! However, I do especially love the challenges and product spotlights. Oh, and I ADORE when you have your designers talk about their favorite items and show their work spaces! (One of these days, I hope to post my craft-astrophe work space on my blog).

2. I subscribe to your blog via email, and I read every post!

3. I love love love your videos, and of course I love the giveaways, too. My DeNami wish list is never-ending, and the giveaways give me hope! LOL

4. Yes! Recently, my time constraints have been really rough, so I know I've missed a few challenges, but I always try to enter them when I can.

5. I really enjoy the themes, but variety can be nice in case a specific week's theme doesn't fit your needs.

6. Not that I can think of right now.

7. Nope.

Final comments: I really love your blog (and your products), and I think the blog hops are my absolute favorite thing!

Amy Smidebush said...

Oh! I came up with some other ideas! I hope you don't mind! What about designer/fan favorites for weekly posts? Such as....everyone's favorite border stamp? favorite background stamp? favorite chickie? favorite Mimi? petit four? adhesive? coloring product? etc. I think it'd be fun to get everyone's opinions and learn about new things.

Also...how could I forget to mention some of my favorite posts as your release previews! I seriously can't wait until January when you release more stamps! Any chance you could do a 12 Days of Christmas preview post where you give us sneek peaks of 12 new stamps (just to whet our appetite)? (a girl can hope, eh?)
