2017 Reader Survey + Giveaway!

While I firmly believe that yes, this is my blog, I can write about what’s passionate to me, it’s also important to find out what my readers want and don’t want, to be a part of when they land on my little space on the Internet. After all, this blog wouldn’t even exist if it wasn’t for the readers! Please take five to ten minutes to answer these 10 questions then be added in to a drawing for your chance to win a seasonal gift basket!
I’m a huge believer of reader surveys. When I started Shiraz over five years ago, my goal was to simply document Maddy through the years however, as I started growing in motherhood, I realized I had so much more to share and say. I was transitioning between maternity leave and being a working mom with working mom issues. I found the first few months of being a new mother completely isolating and lonely and to top it off, I had a pretty rough bout with post-partum depression. Writing became my therapy and five years later, here we are. I’ve “met” so many amazing moms and friends through blogging and it has truly been an honor to share a part of myself with all of you.


While I firmly believe that yes, this is my blog, I can write about what’s passionate to me, it’s also important to find out what my readers want and don’t want, to be a part of when they land on my little space on the Internet. After all, this blog wouldn’t even exist if it wasn’t for the readers! Listening to what you have to say opens me up to ideas and perspectives that I may have never considered. I always want to strive to make this blog a place you enjoy coming to without compromising my own values and opinions. I do believe there can be a balance.


With this in mind, this survey is for the readers of Shiraz who are frequent visitors to this site. While I am soliciting your feedback, this is not an opportunity to berate, or leave hateful messages. If you have constructive criticism, by all mean – share it! However, I will not tolerate bullying of any kind. If you prefer to open the survey in a new tab, here’s the link to do so. Otherwise, please take about five to ten minutes of your time to complete this survey. Please answer these 10 questions honestly, with an open mind and in kindness. When you’re done, make sure to scroll down for information on my giveaway as a way to say “Thank you!”

Thank you for your understanding!)
