An outfit stolen from Kendi and Jenni, and a survey

IMG_7067 copy
6-1-2011
I’m very lukewarm about this outfit. Well, maybe not the outfit. It’s the hair. I get very lazy with my hair in the summertime, and this year is obviously no exception. Maybe I’ll attempt twenty different hairstyles in the next twenty days or something. This would count as one, right? (lame-o ponytail, check!)

This outfit is basically the opposite of this ones Kendi and Jenni wore. Olive on the bottom and blue on top. Half copying, half my own and half flattering, yeah?

Anyway, after the amazing feedback yesterday (thank you. Really, thank you), I decided to post what I had originally intended, which is a short reader survey for you guys. I’m trying to implement some good changes around here, but I also want to make sure you like what you’re reading. So, please take a few and answer one, two or all of the following questions (you can also email me at vinylahoy (at) gmail.com, if you prefer):

1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy?

2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy?

3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog?

4. What would you like to see more of?

5. What would you like to see less of?

6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc)

7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc)

8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see?

9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)?

10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader?

Thanks!! (PS- just know that even if you try to answer anonymously, WordPress collects the IP address you’re using, so if you’re saying something not-so-nice, and you’ve commented before, I may be able to tell that it’s you. Creative criticisms are allowed and encouraged. Just wanting to give you full disclosure before you tell me off or something!)

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)? Money makes the world go around … if you can make a little cash doing something you love, DO IT. Just be honest about affiliate links and such.

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader?
    None I can think of.

  3. I love that you put that disclaimer at the bottom – I thought that was incredibly funny. Even though I know you didn’t mean for it to be. I read for your personality and I usually love your outfit combos. I’ve been reading (sporadically, forgive me) since October. I am sorry I don’t have more answers to all your questions. I read when I can and always like what I see. I say just keep being true to yourself.

    • I added the disclaimer, because if someone tried to cuss me out, I wanted them to be aware I’d probably know it was them 🙂
      I know Blogspot doesn’t collect IP addresses the way WordPress does. It’s how I knew on my controversial Modcloth post, the one nasty comment came from a Modcloth employee!

  4. 3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog?
    Since the very first post, and because you said “HEY SISTER I STARTED A BLOG, READ IT, OK?!!”

    4. What would you like to see more of?
    Loafy. Cats make the posts even better!

    Posts without Loafy.

    🙂

  5. 1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy? 3-4x a week

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy? the clothes, you have a good eye. Esp skirts, ’cause I am really bad at styling them!

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog? over a year, a comment on another blog, maybe

    4. What would you like to see more of? you out and about? Your hubby’s outfits, ha? Mine wants some styling help

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc) I always love a DIY post!

    7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc) I don’t see many vlogs in my reader! Yes!

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)? I don’t mind it, especially when it’s advertising a similar blog or a shop you like

  6. 1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy?
    I follow through bloglovin so I read every post.

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy?
    I don’t know that I have a favorite type of post. I love pictures of your cute cats! I like everything I read.

    I do love DIYs.

    No complaints

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc)
    Really, whatever you want to post about. It’s your blog. I know, I’m not much help. I’m not married so I don’t really identify with married life posts.

    7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc) To be honest, unless it is a tutorial, I don’t really watch vlogs.

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see?
    Once or twice a month would be good.

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)?
    Advertising on blogs is fine. The only problem I have is when most the clothes the blogger wears are from her sponsers. It stops being a personal style blog then, in my opinion.

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader?
    Nope. Keep being you Suze!

  7. 1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy? Every post.

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy? I honestly don’t know. I read because I think your awesome. I think your funny and I love that you show more than just your outfits.

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog? Um. Awhile. Last year sometime. I found you on someone else’s blogroll but don’t know who.

    4. What would you like to see more of? Hmm. I love me some kitties but beyond that I’m not real sure. Maybe more DIY?

    5. What would you like to see less of? Nothing. I think you are doing just fine!

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc) Sure!! I’m easy. 🙂

    7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc) Yep. I adore haul vlogs for some reason. Gives me perspective on what to buy or not buy or how to work it. I get bored if it’s too much talking though. Sorry but true.

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see? Not more than once a week at best – I forget how to do things or that there are projects I wanted to try if they were more than that.

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)? I hate advertising. Seriously hate it. I hate how it takes over or seems to be focus driven.

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader? Nope. I think you are doing a lovely job. Oh I love the Paper Doll Project…you rock on that!!

  8. 1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy? I subscribe, so if you post it, I read it!

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy? I love all the bright colors and patterns! I was telling my husband about you just now before I logged on and I showed him today’s outfit (something I shouldn’t have done, because he has a thing for redheads!) and 2 of my other fashion blogs had new posts and I showed him those. I am not kidding AT ALL, but BOTH bloggers had black and white on. It was cute so I keep it for inspiration, but so boring all at the same time.

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog?
    I subscribe because someone on another blog said that you were the master at bright colors and patterns, so I checked out your blog and I forgot to subscribe!! Then, the next day I logged on and you were either being featured or you were doing a guest spot, so I immediately came here and subscribed!!

    4. What would you like to see more of?
    Maybe some of your thrifting adventures?

    5. What would you like to see less of?
    I like everything you put up

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc)
    Yep, as creepy as it sounds, I can see your personality through the posts and I enjoy reading about your personal life.

    7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc)
    Yeah, I think I would be interested in vlogs.

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see?
    I LOVE DIY! So, anytime you have time for it, I would love to see it!

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)?
    I don’t really mind it. If you open up advertising spots, then you can (essentially) get paid to blog which might mean you blog more, so I think it’s a win-win

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader?
    Sorry, not really!

  9. 1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy?
    As often as I can.

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy?
    How real you are. Nothing phony or contrived about you.

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog?
    Maybe about a year? I don’t even remember how I found it.

    4. What would you like to see more of?
    I’d love to see you out and about in your outfits, and doing social things, instead of just
    posing by your apartment.

    5. What would you like to see less of?
    No answer for that one!

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc)
    It would be great to see your opinion on what celebrities are wearing. And you wouldn’t
    have to be nice about it, either! Lol

    7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc)
    Vlogs are always so much fun!

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see?
    I’d like to see a DIY post atleast once a month.

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)?
    To tell you the truth, I don’t even notice any advertising.

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader?
    I like hearing what happens to you in your daily life, like comments you hear from co-
    workers or others who comment on your outfits and hair. Other people’s opinions are
    always very interesting to me. It would also be fun if you did a video of you out
    shopping, or did one of those “haul” videos.

  10. 1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy?

    -Everyday (Seriously)

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy?

    -The variety in post. I like that you offer DIYs, outfit post, etc.

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog?

    I don’t remember, sorry.

    4. What would you like to see more of?

    I’m a fan of DIYs.

    5. What would you like to see less of?

    N/A

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc)

    I think you already offer a good variety.

    7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc)

    I’m not a fan of vlogs. For some reason, I don’t like watching videos on my computer.

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see?

    I don’t have a preference to how often.

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)?

    I like the way you have your ads on the side because they don’t get in the way of things. I think when ads take up more space than the blog itself, then its a problem.

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader?

    I really enjoy this blog. It’s one of the ones that I make a point to read consistently.

  11. 1. Everyday! That’s the beauty of Google Reader 🙂

    2. You wear so much color! Yet I feel like I can gather inspiration from you and not look like a clown at my office.

    3. 3 or 4 months i think? I know I found you through another blog, but I can’t remember whose.

    4. Maybe shots of where you are going/what you’re doing?

    5. Not sure, I like what you’re doing! (Not helpful, I know)

    6. If you feel a burning need to share, I’ll read it!

    7. Nope.

    8. Don’t care. I’m not really a DIY person

    9. As long as I don’t get pop-ups and/or annoying flashing things, i don’t mind. As soon as it affects my ability to read the blog, then I get annoyed.

    10. I think you’re doing great!

  12. 1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy?
    every time you update!

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy?
    im an OOTD person. thats the main reason i read blogs. but i also love your DIYs. and of course, sometimes something of a different topics catches my interest too.

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog?
    hrm. maybe a year? i dont even remember how i found out. most likely i found you through someone elses blogroll.

    4. What would you like to see more of?
    more of what you do best, doll: be you!

    5. What would you like to see less of?
    cant really think of anything offhand…

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc)
    recipes, i would be interested in, since im getting into that lately. personally, im not really interested in celeb fashion type stuff — i focus on blogs that inspire me with attainable fashion. otherwise, i think you do already incorporate your life into your blog, at least to some extent…

    7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc)
    the occasional vlog is fun! but i still like photos as the main format.

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see?
    as often as you find something that inspires you! i think if it becomes something that you feel you HAVE to do, its not as fun for you, and therefore not as fun for us. but if youve got the inspiration, sure, do it.

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)?
    i dont mind a sponsor here and there, but im not a fan of blogs that have ads running rampant all over the place. it is distracting and a turnoff.

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader?
    just do whatever feels right to you. otherwise, things will feel forced or artificial. i know thats not your style, and thats why i love reading your blog. 🙂

  13. 1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy? Every time you post.

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy? Reading about what’s going on in your life.

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog? Hmm…I think I found you when you and Kendi switched places during the 30 for 30.

    4. What would you like to see more of? Your hilarious personality.

    5. What would you like to see less of? Hmm…not sure.

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc) Sure, if you feel like sharing!

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see? Every other week, maybe? I like the really easy ones. 🙂

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader? Do whatever you need to do to make sure you love your blog.

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy? Seeing the different pattern combo’s you come up with

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog? Wow, I think it would be a year soon. I found your blog through FBFF

    4. What would you like to see more of? The DIY accessory posts are fun.

    5. What would you like to see less of? hmm..nothing really

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc)Lifestyle would be cool! I found it soo interesting that you are a Star Wars fan like me!

    7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc) Ooh, vlogs would be cool, especially for your pattern combination how-tos

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see? Once a week or so would be fine for me

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)? Advertising is fine as long as it stays true to you and doesn’t overwhelm your site design

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader? As long as you keep staying true to yourself, it’s all good with me!

  15. 1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy? Whenever I see your facebook post or twice a week when I catch up on my blogs.

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy? You seem like a real person, someone I could be friends with in real life vs just a girly girl who just wants to play dress up.

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog? 4-6 months.. I have no idea how I found you. I am sure it all started from a single blog and someone commented and another guess posted and after awhile you have 20 or so places to visit. lol

    5. What would you like to see less of? ???? I am not bored with anything I have seen on your blog.

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see? DIY would be great on weekends when no one else posts.

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)? I don’t mind as long as it isn’t popup ads.

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader?
    A bit more casual weekend wear maybe. I realize no one wants to post their sloppy clothes but maybe comfortable after work or weekend wear so we can be inspired to look good everywhere just not at work.

  16. Oh thought of something else. would love to see examples of how changing one or two items dramatically changes an outfit. Shoes, sweater, jewelry etc. Sometimes I realize I don’t hate what I am wearing I just needed to tweek it some. Audri

  17. I love the shoes!! ^^ I think we have the same hair length now. I have it chopped last Sunday. ^^

    1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy?
    Whenever I’m not busy… hmm, maybe at least 4 times a week.

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy?
    Daily outfit posts. 🙂 It helps me mix my own clothes too! ^^ And of course DIYs!!

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog?
    I’ve been reading your blog few weeks after you started? 🙂 Loafy followed me on Twitter then I met her cool human then we became friends! ^^

    4. What would you like to see more of?
    More outfit posts and of course DIYs. I also like it when you post about issues such as the one with ModCloth? It actually helps the consumers know what they are missing. Come on, a $30 difference between same items from 2 store is a huge amount. Umm, and more Loafy? Heehee!

    5. What would you like to see less of?
    Hmm, nothing… can’t think of any.

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc)
    Recipes!! ^^ Sure, sure! 🙂 Comments about what celebs wear is also great! You can also feature Joe again. lol ^^

    7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc)
    Yup! I usually watch vlogs about DIYs, make-up and hairstyle how-tos. 🙂

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see?
    It depends on you. I know you also have a regular job, a husband, and two cutesy cats to attend too so I’m not going to demand too much. ^^

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)?
    It’s okay… I also added some ads and ad posts on my blog for extra income. 🙂

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader?
    I think your blog is really awesome so just keep doing what you’re doing & you’re on the right track! ^^

  18. 1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy? Whenever it shows up in Google Reader – usually I read my fashion blogs every couple of days.

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy? Seeing how you put pieces together – I wear a lot of bright, colourful clothes, and I like to see how you combine them.

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog? 6 months-1 year? I’m not sure! I found you through another “what I wore” blogger who talked about you all the time. 🙂

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc) Sure, why not?

    7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc) I rarely ever watch vlogs.

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)? I only read through Google Reader, so it doesn’t affect me. But in general, I don’t mind it as long as it’s not distracting (ie more colourful or brighter than the post itself, in the middle of the page) or in the way (those horrible roll-over ads)

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader? Nope! I always enjoy reading you.

  19. 1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy? Every time you post

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy? your outfits

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog? I think about a year (I think this is the first time I’ve commented), and I found you though another blog, but I’m not sure which one.

    4. What would you like to see more of? DIY, Style tips

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc) yes, to all of those.

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see? I like to see these everyonce in awhile. Maybe once or twice a month depending on how much time you have.

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)? I think advertising is fine as long as it is not the only thing on the blog. Some blogs have too many advertisements and it is just overwhelming to read.

    I really like this skirt you are wearing. I never would have thought to pair it with a blue top like this, I like the way it looks! 🙂

  20. Gorgeous! I love it–it looks so fresh.

    I’m very lukewarm about this outfit. Well, maybe not the outfit. It’s the hair. I get very lazy with my hair in the summertime, and this year is obviously no exception. Maybe I’ll attempt twenty different hairstyles in the next twenty days or something. This would count as one, right? (lame-o ponytail, check!)

    This outfit is basically the opposite of this ones Kendi and Jenni wore. Olive on the bottom and blue on top. Half copying, half my own and half flattering, yeah?

    Anyway, after the amazing feedback yesterday (thank you. Really, thank you), I decided to post what I had originally intended, which is a short reader survey for you guys. I’m trying to implement some good changes around here, but I also want to make sure you like what you’re reading. So, please take a few and answer one, two or all of the following questions (you can also email me at vinylahoy (at) gmail.com, if you prefer):

    1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy? I read through Google Reader, so I see all posts (yay!)

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy? Your fun personality and your great style.

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog? Hmm…at least a year now I’m guessing. This is one of the first blogs I found and started

    4. What would you like to see more of? Hmm…not sure. I think you’re doing a great job as is!

    5. What would you like to see less of? Nothing in particular…you’re fab.

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc) Not really.

    7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc). Not really…I rarely watch videos on blogs.

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see? maybe once a month? I never have any time to try them anyway, but I love seeing how innovative you get.

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)? As long as it’s not intrusive, I don’t mind it.

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader? Nope!

  21. 1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy? A couple times a week. Twice maybe? whenever I remember to check bloglovin’.

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog? not sure how I found your blog! Probably through Vahni. And umm since December? November maybe? Not sure at all (I have the memory of a goldfish).

    4. What would you like to see more of? More of what you want.

    5. What would you like to see less of? I’m totally okay with the site as is!

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc) celeb fashion? no thanks. A little bit more on life? Sure, why not? 😀

    7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc) YES YES YES, I want to hear your voice. Is that creepy? Any kind.

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see? Hmm 2* a month? That seems like a manageable number…

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)?No probs with the ads on your site but I hate in your face giant adds or pop ups and such.

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader? Not really, just continue being the awesome person you are.

    The color block that goes with each outfit – I like it! One thing that I would like to see possibly changed is the order that its in. When I am looking at the outfit I would like to see the color block follow the outfit from top to bottom. So that might mean earrings, then necklace, then shirt, then skirt, then tights, then shoes. Sometimes you have it in a funky order and I feel like I have to search for what goes with what.

    I hope that you think of this as helpful input, because I really like your blog!

    • Yes! That is very helpful! I wasn’t sure if anyone was paying attention, and now that I know you guys are, I’ll try to make sure they’re in a better order :). Sometimes the order might get a little fussy, because I also list stuff by color, so today’s outfit, for example, I list the tank and shoes together because they’d black. But I totally agree that you shouldn’t have to search. It should be easy to find.
      Thank you! 🙂

  23. 1. I read your posts as soon as I see you’ve updated and as soon as I have the time. I tend to read all the blogs I follow one after the other in alphabetical order each weekday and then take a break on weekends.

    2. I guess everything is my favourite part. The outfits. Stuff about life. Friends. Other blogs. It all floats my boat.

    3. I have no idea how long I’ve been reading… several months now I think? I probably stumbled upon it through another blog, though now I have no idea which.

    4. Everything you feel like sharing!

    5. N/A

    6. Like I said, I’m happy to read about anything. You seem like a wonderful person and I like learning about you and your life (hopefully that doesn’t come off creepy!) and all it entails, fashion or otherwise.

    7. I’m not big on vlogs unless it’s showing how to do something, like a hair-do, or a nail-polish process or something that is just better communicated via video than photos and text.

    8. As often as you like, you are the blogger after all 🙂 And again… happy with everything!

    9. To be honest, I don’t really notice the advertising on your blog, and that’s probably for the best. I tend to immediately be turned off by blogs that are overtaken by advertising, even if it is all pertinent to my interests.

    10. N/A

  24. Hey lady! You look lovely. 🙂 As for your survey…

    1. How often do you read Miss Vinyl Ahoy? – You’re in my Google Reader, so whenever you post and I get around to reading my blogs (at least a few times a week)

    2. What is your favorite part of Miss Vinyl Ahoy? – Your down-to-earth nature, by far!

    3. How long have you been reading and how did you found out about the blog? Only a couple of months – I honestly don’t remember how I stumbled across your blog, though.

    4. What would you like to see more of? Hmmm…not really sure. Personal stories or experiences?

    5. What would you like to see less of? Can’t think of anything.

    6. Would you like to read about other things beside what I’m wearing and DIY/how-to posts? (recipes, lifestyle, my marriage, celeb fashions, etc) – Sure! Lifestyle blogs are my favorite. 🙂

    7. Would you be interested in vlogs? If so, what kinds? (about my outfit, DIY, answering questions, etc) – Honestly, when I see videos, I just skip on by it.

    8. How often would you like to see new DIY/how-to posts? Do you have any you’d like to see? – Can’t really think of anything.

    9. What do you think about advertising on blogs (in general, or on this one)? – If it’s relevant, it’s okay, but it should be obvious that it’s a solid relationship. Like it would make sense for Kate (Divergent Musings) to have an ad for Modcloth as she loves their shop.

    10. Any other thoughts you have to make Miss Vinyl Ahoy a better blog for you, the reader? – I think the above covers it. Good for you for continuing to think of ways to improve it.
