feedback friday…

Day 6 of the CheckerberryLane Blog Birthday Celebration! includes a survey and a chance to win an A|S stamp set!

Ladies… Thank you so much for celebrating with me this week!  I’ve had a lot of fun sharing and hope you received some fun ideas and inspiration!  Today, I’m looking for some feedback from you to help me make my blog better than ever!  And the celebration continues—- there is something in it for you… keep reading to find out exactly what that is…

I’m hoping you’ll have a few minutes to respond to a quick survey I have for you, related to my blog. This should take you 5 to 10 minutes tops, but the value to me when I look at the results will be priceless.

If you need to, take a look back at the posts from this past week, even the past few months, and please answer the following questions in the comments.  Everyone who responds to all 5 questions by 7/7/12 at midnight will have a chance to win the Just Because stamp set from A|S (which retails for $12.99) One chance per person; randomly selected.



Should you choose to respond, feel free to state the question #’s and then list your choices by letter(s),
for example,  1.) a, b, e, f    2.) c. , Etc. — in the comments… 

1.)   What are your favorite types of articles to read at CheckerberryLane?

  1. Clean & Simple Sunday
  2. Color Challenge Wednesday
  3. Featured Set (where I share samples of cards using just that one stamp set)
  4. One Sketch/3 Cards (where I use a sketch to inspire a few variations of a card design)
  5. Project Life (where I share photos of layouts I’ve done using the Becky Higgins products and method of scrapbooking)
  6. A Muse|Studio News & Spotlight promotions (all the latest news and sale info from A Muse|Studio)
  7. I love everything—keep it coming!

2.)   What do you prefer related to the format of content at CheckerberryLane?

  1. Longer posts with more product info, descriptions, instructions, photos
  2. Shorter posts with less product info, instructions—less words in general, and more photos only with minimal description—in other words, I come for the eye candy, not to read
  3. It seems about right for me, keep doing what you’re doing!

3.)    I would like to see…

  1. More stamping techniques used/taught in the cards posted on CheckerberryLane

  4. More projects (i.e. packaging ideas, hand-stamped gift ideas, hand-stamped home décor, etc)
  5. All of the above
  6. None of the above

4.)   In an effort to better understand who my readers are, please respond with the category that best represents you…

  1. I am a relative or personal friend (of Kristine Vicente/CheckerberryLane)
  2. I am a fellow A Muse|Studio consultant
  3. I am neither a. nor b.

5.)   Please feel free to leave any additional thoughts or comments on what you currently get out of CheckerberryLane or how you think I could make this blog better (and please be honest, I truly value your feedback and want this blog to be something helpful and fun in addition to it being a great way to share news about A Muse|Studio)…

    5. I like the Blog just the way it is! I think you have the perfect amount of descriptions without being too wordy. And I like to know what colors especially that you used because sometimes I’m not sure what color it is. I seldom have time to scrapbook anymore so I wouldn’t be interested in that too much. Thanks, Kris, I love your Blog!
