What do you want?

So I've been thinking a lot lately about my blog and I want to do MORE with it. So I need help! Right now, I have the following:

Creative Inspiration - layouts by my CT with my kits
Ads - I try to advertise my new releases and my sales and crops, etc.
Products - I sell my products here too
High/Low & Freebies - On Fridays, I give my High and my low of the week and offer a freebie
Project 365 - This is my family journal - I try to post this on Sundays (but it could be later) - of the previous week's daily photos and a bit of journaling about the day.

So what I need is some ideas - what do you want to see on the blog? What would make you visit more often and make you happy? What makes you visit a blog?

Thanks and I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Freebies makes people visit more often.
Daily Downloads, like an old kit that youre not seeling anymore, you could give it one piece a day.

Well, me? I already visit you everyday

I really can't think of anything else! The other lady mentioned using an old kit as a DD, which could be kind of cool. One of the things I like in blogs are glimpses into personal lives and you do that with your 365!

I really don't know how you could improve your blog as I visit it regularly already and enjoy reading your High/Low and Project 365.

As Anonymous said - freebies do attract more people however I don't visit just for that.

Hugs to you.

I wouldn't change your blog.....it is FANTASTIC the way it is. I love coming to read about what you and your family have been up to, seeing the gorgeous piccies of your kids and reading your High/Lows for the week.

I love seeing what new designs you have come up with and even though I don't get them all, I have gotten quite a few of yours.

I want to see what you are posting on your blog for the 365 challenge on actual scrapbook pages that you will be able to give your children! I'm suspecting you haven't been scrapping them all????

I visit blogs for lots of reasons, sometimed=s for inspiration, other times to find out about the life of a friend (or someone I would like to be a friend)

I'm sure freebies are the #1 reason people visit blogs.

I like tuts, but lots of times I just enjoy reading what is going on in a person's life. Especially if it is someone I see often in the chat rooms.

I usually visit your blog daily or at least every other day.

Freebies ... plain and simple. Most of the time I only have a very short time to get as much as I can. So usually it is a short visit. And since today I have a little more time than usual. I would like to thank you for all the freebies you put on your blog ...you are truly generous!!!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

I come for your freebies which you have been very generous in giving. Thanks from me also. Also to see updates on latest products. I like the sales, chats and promotions for your different sites. I enjoy seeing the pages made by your team. I enjoy seeing your family. In short you do have me coming back at least twice a week.

I have really enjoyed your blog... I love when you post your newest kits... the Pirates and Disney themes and freebies got me here - and reading your encouraging comments keep me coming back... I love the inspiration... but mostly... I like your design style and want to see what you are up to next... I am so excited about VillianzMore that is coming soon...

Thank you for all you do and share...

DeDe, I like everything about your blog the way it is now. It's great hearing about your family, seeing your products, keeping up with your schedule and freebies that you generously share too. Your new family photos in your blog header are simply gorgeous! The photographer did a great job. No matter what you do with your blog, I'll keep coming back. You are one of my favorite designers. Keep up the great work!

Hi Dede!

I visit your blog all the time...mainly because you inspire me to be a better person. You have a spiritual presence that I love and while although I know you had a very difficult week, in the end you came out speaking of it positively, I just LOVE that! I have been unemployed for quite awhile now and this past year has been very, very difficult for me. I have never been unemployed and there have been many times when it was hard for me to see the beauty in life...then I would read one of your posts, or look at your P365 photos and they would make me smile. I, too, have been taking a photo every single day this year; my focus has been finding something beautiful in everyday no matter how hard I had to look and many of your stories and/or photos helped me find what I was looking for!

You're a gem and I love your blog. As far as something I'd like to see, I am not sure....I know I am a HUGE template lover, but I don't know if you ever make templates. As the others mentioned, free items are always great, but they're not the #1 reason I visit. I'd love to see more of your layouts as I am always trying to find inspiration.

Anyway, thanks for all you do for your fans! I think it's great that you asked what we'd like to see. That's very cool!
