Sporadic Saturday--I Need Your Input

As I examine my blog, I have decided that I would like to get your input about something.  I am at 130 followers.  In another week, I can actually spend some time reorganizing my blog--lining up the buttons, adding favicons, using blog backgrounds, writing more reviews, hopefully hosting giveaways, etc.  So that will be coming.  I can make that promise to you.  My goal is to have my blog looking great by the time January comes.  It really shouldn't take a long time since I kind of know what I am doing.

As I have been reading other blogs, I have discovered that offering free things to my readers are a great incentive.  Perhaps I cannot offer all the giveaways that the big blogs offer, but I think the time has come to get some kind of freebies together.  

I also plan to do a lot more networking.  In fact, an idea was given to me by another blogger, and I plan to put it into effect after my next giveaway ends.  I am going to make a goal of trying to network every day at least for 10 minutes.  I feel it is the least I can do.

I have thought about hosting some "swaps" amongst our members.  I got involved with a Secret Santa exchanges this month, and I forgot how much fun they were!  I had a blast.  I think  we could do something like that. 

So, I have a lot of ideas.  I have shared a few of mine.  I want to hear from you--my readers.  What would you like to see from this blog?  You can be honest.  I will not take offense.  Please don't personally attack me--that's all I ask. I am sure you want more giveaways, and here's hoping.  You can tell me what kinds of giveaways would interest you.  You can tell me what kinds of reviews you would like to see.  What kinds of posts would interest you the most?  What I can do to be more welcoming.  This is all new to me, and I know I have a lot to learn.  So please feel free to share.  And to the experienced bloggers, please share what you have learned.  I want  to be a better blogger.  I started this blog because I love to write.  And it is nice to know that people are truly reading this blog.  

So please let me know.  If you want to share candidly, my e-mail address is public, and you can certainly share!  Thanks!
