Survey Results!

A big thanks to all of you who took the time to take my blog survey!  (It's still open, if you haven't taken it yet and would like to do so.  I'm still interested in your responses!) 

I thought you might be interested in seeing the results!  Most of us are curious to see how our answers compare to others.

Survey Results:
  • I learned that over a third of you have been reading Yes They're All Ours for three months or less, while about a third of you have been reading for over a year.  (Thank you for your continued support!)
  • About 65% of you discovered this blog either by clicking over from another blog or by the recommendation of a friend.  (Thanks for spreading the word!)

  • Over half of you drop by the blog to look for new posts, while about a quarter of you rely on Facebook notifications.  (Reminder to self:  always post blog updates on Facebook!)

  • 100% of those who responded said that most posts were about the right length, and most of you wanted to see new content posted at least 3 to 4 times per week.

  • I was quite surprised to learn that the vast majority of you preferred updates about my family or posts about large family life!   The second most popular posts were recipes and tips on mothering!  Close behind were homeschooling and marriage posts.

  • Conversely, the least favorite posts were diet and fitness related and giveaways.

I appreciated receiving your feedback.  Especially helpful were your suggestions for topics you'd like to see covered in future posts.  Some of the requested topics were:

  • Recommended Reading Lists
  • Tips for Dealing with Sibling Rivalry
  • How to Handle Friendships in a Large Family
  • Money-saving Tips and How to Afford a Large Family
  • Menu-planning and Grocery shopping for the Large Family
  • My recipe for Sauteed Cabbage
  • Tips on Establishing a Daily Routine or Schedule
  • Home Organization Tips for the Large Family
  • Homeschooling Tips
  • Child Training Tips

Have you ever considered that I've avoided some of those topics for a reason?!  ;)  In other words, as soon as I get it figured it out, I'll be sure and share with you!!!  :)

Seriously, I do plan to address some of the topics you suggested in the days and weeks ahead.  If I don't have the answers, maybe we can at least explore the question together!  

If you are looking for a list of books I recommend, have you checked here? and here?

For tips on a variety of aspects of large family life, check out the All in a Day series.  You'll find a wealth of information there, not just from me, but from the other All in a Day bloggers.

I do plan to blog more about home education in the coming year, but for now, check out my  Homeschooling Page.

Some of you mentioned adding a Question and Answer section to my blog.  Please feel free to submit questions in the Comments section of any post or by emailing me privately.  You may email me any question you would like to see answered at busymomof10@gmail.com or elizabeth@yestheyareallours.com.  I will answer questions privately as time allows or on my blog if I think they are of general interest.

Encouraging Comments:

I was very blessed by some of the comments left on the survey!!  I thought I'd share a couple of my favorites here:

"I love this blog! Really, I would like to see it every day, but think that might be too hard for you and do not want to be 'selfish'. ;o)  It is always interesting, informative, refreshing, and inspiring, uplifting, encouraging, etc. THANKS for blessing my life!"

"You are doing a great job! I really enjoy your blog--so much so that it is the only one I receive via email or Facebook!"

"This is the most encouraging and fun blog I have EVER seen! BY FAR my #1 favorite and I want to thank you for everything you post about!!! Keep up the AMAZING work and God Bless You!!!!"

Wow!  As you can imagine, comments such as these really made my day!  :)

Winner Announced:

Now I get to make someone else's day, by announcing the winner of my giveaway!  The randomly selected winner of the Smoky Mountain Hymns DVD is . . . 

Janet Kressling!  \o/

Janet, you have until Friday to email me with your mailing address, so I can send you the DVD, or I will select another winner.

Thanks to all who participated!
