2015 Reader Survey Results

I couldn’t have been more pleased with the response to my first annual reader survey. A total of 418 of you responded to my (lengthy) questionnaire, telling me your hopes and dreams (and, of course, your favorite recipes).

I want you to know that I read each and every one of your responses. And on the whole they were incredibly positive, I was literally grinning the whole time. Y’all were so kind and thoughtful (and thorough) with your answers. Honestly, I really couldn’t ask for better readers than you. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart, for essentially reinforcing that I’m doing something right.

I do want you to know (since some of you expressed concerns) that I have no plans to change this blog in any significant way. We’re going to keep making the food we want to eat, and, as you’ve made pretty clear, it’s the same kind of food you want to eat too. That said, your feedback will most definitely sit cozily in the back of my mind as I develop future content and features.

A few of you expressed interest in knowing the results of my recent reader survey, so I thought I’d whip up a fancy infographic (I say “whip up” which implies it was quick; this darn thing took me longer than 3 normal posts!) I’ve combined the survey answers with some broader demographic data (who paid attention in college Statistics class? This girl!) and the results really give you a clear picture of just who reads this little blog of mine.
