Today I’m sharing the results from the Nose Graze reader feedback survey! This survey was fun to do at first, but after a while, I think I lost my steam. Somewhere down the line I felt like the survey wasn’t really helping me. Some of the responses were GREAT, but others felt like they were from people who didn’t even read my blog! Someone complained about too many memes.. but there’s only one meme that I’ve been participating in over the last 6-12 months. That’s Stacking the Shelves, and I was only posting about 1-3 times a month O_O
So I think getting replies like that was discouraging. It made me feel bad about things that weren’t even on my blog, which was an odd feeling.
But putting that aside, a lot of the comments were really kind and helpful! Let’s take a look…

Why did you decide to start following Nose Graze?
I enjoy your posts, and the variety of content on your site.
BBB posts are so useful! You rock!
The blog tips are useful & the reviews are professional but engaging. 🙂
I kept clicking through for blogging tips each week and figured I should just subscribe and not rely on others to link your posts 😉
Everyone always links to your content in weekly round-up posts!
When you think “Nose Graze” what’s the first thing that comes to mind?
Something with noses, and not book related at all.
Buggers. TBH, I don’t like your name.
Honestly? Like I’m out walking on the street and almost get hit by a car, but instead it just swipes my nose. Weird, I know.
A great resource for book bloggers.

How do you feel about Bitchin’ Book Blog?
I really like it! Sometimes the advice doesn’t apply to anything I need, but most of the time it’s super helpful!
I personally love it. I’ve been debating starting my own blog for months and love reading your hints and tips.
LOVE IT! Please have more! Could you perhaps do a java/html/css/photoshop tutorial/class/seminar? That’ll be great!
AWESOME idea! I wonder if I could pull that off…
I like it. No one else offers help like that for wordpress blogs (that I’ve seen) and it’s great tips and advice.
Like it, but most of it is for WordPress users so I’d love to see more for Blogger users.
Also have you used the platform ‘Squarespace’? If so I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
I’d like to see more design-related Q & As. How to layer images in photoshop to make a banner, or how to put your social media icons in your header, that kind of thing.
Any other comments about the design?
I’m in love with your new design!! Everything about it is amazing.
Hierarchy-wise, the images you use at the top of your posts… like the one here for the reader survey are HUGE. Too big, actually. I’m on a macbook pro and the images fill, like, a 5th of my screen. And with this new design, I hardly notice your blog’s name anymore because the post header images overpower everything else on your site. I felt this way with the old design, too.
I really enjoy your blog because of the tips you give people. I love the posts where people ask questions and you answer them. Those are a big help because I think bloggers who are blogging for a hobby have no one to go to to ask these questions.
I just want to say that I think you’re doing a great job on every aspect of your blog. I don’t know how your other readers feel, but I just enjoy reading your content. The only thing I ever skip are the Stacking the Shelves posts. I rarely comment and sometimes get behind reading your posts, but that’s more due to my schedule right now than anything else. I can’t think of anything that you should change. I say, do your thing however you want to do it. I think the fact that all of your posts are genuine is probably what draws most of your readers in anyway.
