Hey you opinionated and oh so smart people, I have a little survey for you.
As you know from previous posts I’m working on changing up how I run things at Some Odd Girl to make them work better for me, where I am now, while still trying to draw up things I know you all would enjoy. Some Odd Girl is going to be 7 years old in January (le gasp!) and I know that things in our little corner of the crafting community have changed since we began in 2010. I’d probably be more surprised if they hadn’t, frankly. There are more companies out there, more originality and (sadly) a lot more ripoffs, as well as changes in trends and tastes.
Like I said, this is a mini survey, it only has a handful questions. If you could answer below in the comments I’d puffy heart you for it, if you’re uncomfortable doing so but still want to share, use the contact form here on the blog to send me your thoughts. These are meant to be “in general” not specific to any company out there.
Let’s start this thang…
What kinds of things draw you into an image, or is there something you specifically look for when purchasing? Conversely, is there anything that you try to avoid?
How do you find yourself using your images most? Cards, just for coloring, art journals, etc.
Is there something you have been looking for but can’t find? This could be anything.
Like I said earlier, times have changed, what are your preferred ways to interact with companies and other crafters now vs in the past?
Lastly, is there anything you’d like the companies out there to know?
If these questions conjure up other thoughts, don’t hesitate to add it in to your comments, too.
I ask because we’ve been noticing a lot of things that used to “work”, especially in areas of interaction, just aren’t as effective as they used to be. We want to do things that people enjoy while having fun ourselves so I might as well get the info from the source.
I’m really interested in your answers and hope you’ll enjoy letting us know as much, it can only benefit all of us.
