As I wrote about yesterday, I am currently reading Columbine. As such, there will be no Fashion Book post today. I’ve been thinking a lot about the blog lately, and about why I write and what I can do differently. Firstly, I want to thank all of you for reading and commenting! I really love getting your feedback and thoughts, so keep it up. Your comments are hugely helpful and encouraging–for instance, I have taken what many of you said to heart and will not be hemming my giraffe-print dress. As much as I blog as my own creative outlet, I also want to make sure that I make my content interesting and relevant to what people want to see and read.

So, what on the blog is working and what’s not? I’ve noticed that I rarely get feedback on the Best of the Books, Best of the Looks feature–I’ve been thinking about putting that one to rest and instead, updating the blog more frequently with a few short posts when I see an interesting link or image. What do you guys think? I’m really interested in your feedback and ideas, so please leave them in the comments! Any ideas on stuff you’d like to see that’s not here? Any features I should consider adding? Are my personal outfit posts working? Be honest!

Thanks, as always, for reading! You guys are the best.

    Hey Jill! Personally, I like Best of the Books, Best of the Looks – gives me ideas for my reading list. Enjoy your new apartment!

    Re: Best of the Books, Best of the Looks, I must admit (though it is probably pretty obvious) that I’m not too into fashion, and I also don’t seem to have time for books that much. Which then makes me question why I am reading your blog ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I do like checking out the stuff you post and your opinions on it. I think I just personally tend to avoid or skip blog posts with lots of links you are required to click on to know what someone’s talking about.

    Anyway, I do enjoy your blog and hearing about your adventures AND your opinions, and all the fun pictures you post!

    I like the Best of Books/Looks posts too! Maybe put a few more photos on instead of links for at least the looks section… if you continue with that.

    I think people comment less on “Best of the Looks…” because they’re too busy clicking the links!

    Best of the Looks/Books is one of my favorite things you do! It’s really unique and sets you apart, and I hope you keep it up. Maybe I’ll start commenting more on those posts, just to prove my point… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    i think it’s a good idea…to do it one at a time. Often bloggers put everything on one page adn it’s too much for me. I have too many blogs to visit to visit 20 more that you just recommended at once. You know?

    I really like the Best of the Books/Best of the Looks feature. I usually don’t comment because I’m interested in what you posted and click straight through! I’ve found quite a few blogs that I frequent now because of those posts.
