Survey Says

Stick with me folks, this one is important.

1.) I've been doing a LOT of thinking about this little blog. Who reads it, what they like to read {ok, I know you usually only want to see pictures} and what I want to blog about. So, if you don't mind, we're going to have a little survey. Please check the upper right corner and check the box(es) that apply to you.

2.) While we're at it, I know one of the benefits of reading, commenting, blogging in the adoption world is for support, so if you are a fellow adopter or adoptee or have some place in the adoption world and you read this blog, please introduce yourself and I'll add a link to your blog in my sidebar. Plus, maybe we can be friends. We're always up for making new friends.

3.) This blog is going to change. It might be a little or it might be a lot, depending on your responses. Please respond! I'm told all the time about people who read this and I have no idea! I know some of my mother's co-workers read this (and send her lovely notes, too!) and I know several of you at BB (hi Mimi and friends!) read this ... and apparently lots of our distant relatives (unbeknownst to me) and probably more. You can leave a comment, there's an anonymous option, but we'd love to know who you are. We enjoy giving shout outs. (Hi Emilie and Boston!) Can't you tell? Wouldn't you love to see your name in lights? Or have your very own post dedicated to you? Don't be shy. Just do it.

4.) I promise promise promise to post more pictures. In fact, as soon as I finish this post I'm going to do another post full of pictures as a reward for your voting. Please go chime in on the poll. You can do that completely anonymously. And I'm rewarding you with a beautiful post full of pictures of my cute (and somewhat messy) baby. It will be posted at 10:03am. Promise. And I'll keep posting. But you have to vote. Otherwise you have no right to complain when I change up this here blog to suit my liking and those who voted.

5.) Because I'm feeling wild and crazy tonight, I've created another poll, also anonymous, about the content. Answer that one, too. And no, I'm not going to give you any pictures until I see some votes. So go vote. And come back tomorrow morning at (or after) 10:03am when there will be a post with pictures. But vote first. Thank you.

6.) I never promised I wouldn't be pushy. Sorry. Sometimes I'm bossy but my real friends love me anyway. : )

I know how you feel about not knowing who in the world is reading you blog. Sometimes I think no is reading mine and then someone at church or a aunt will mention they always check it.
Anyway, we are an adoption family. I keep reading yours because I read it before we started and when you had a hard time with homestudy. I like to keep reading the ones who were in the same stages as us...feels like our kids are "family" I guess. There are so many AGCI blogs now that I don't even try to keep up, but I stick with the people I "know".
I like to see how the kids are growing, so keep up the cute pics!
