Blog Survey + Giveaway

Hello readers, and happy Wednesday!

Lately, I’ve been thinking about Maggie’s Musings and how things could be improved. Don’t worry, there aren’t any big, drastic changes on the horizon! I’ve just been giving some thought to my content, structure, and engagement around here and looking at ways that I can improve what I have already.

Since this blog is as much for you as it is for me though, I wanted to get your input! With that in mind, I’ve designed an anonymous survey for all of you wonderful readers to let me know your thoughts, ideas, and just general impressions of Maggie’s Musings. It should only take about 10-15 minutes, and so I encourage you to take some time and share your thoughts with me!

And, if that isn’t enough incentive, I’ll also be running a GIVEAWAY in conjunction with this survey. The official terms are below, but in short, you can opt-in to win a $5 Amazon.com gift card by entering your e-mail at the end of the survey. If you don’t want to enter the giveaway, you can leave that entry blank.

I really want to make Maggie’s Musings something that’s engaging for my audience, and so I’d appreciate the feedback! The survey and giveaway will be open until MAY 18, 2018, so I’ll be posting other reminders during that time as well.

Enjoy the rest of your week, everyone, and keep reading for more information about the survey and giveaway!


Giveaway Terms & Conditions

The giveaway will open on April 18, 2018, and close at 11:59pm on May 18, 2018 EDT. One (1) winner will be chosen at random to receive one (1) $5 Amazon.com Gift Card (USD). In order to enter, visitors must complete the survey and opt-in with their e-mail address at the end of the survey.

Introverts for Extroverts

Last week, I gave the extroverts a spotlight to explain their personalities to introverts. This week, it’s the introverts’ turn. Granted, the internet was basically built for introverts, and thus, they tend to be more understood in online communities. However, the goal of this series is to show both sides of the spectrum, so it’s only fair that the introverts get a chance to speak as well.

As with last week, I received many responses to my survey that it would be difficult to include every single response to all of the questions. Instead, I’ll be quoting a handful of responses for each question, either in whole or in part. Don’t worry though, I made sure to include everyone who participated.

So, extroverts, are you ready to learn something new? Click below to read on!

Extroverts for Introverts

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for… the first part of the Introverts & Extroverts series! Before I get started, I want to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped me out by participating in the survey I put out a few weeks ago. All of your responses were extremely helpful, no matter which end of the spectrum you fell on. I really enjoyed reading all of your responses, and I think I learned a thing or two myself! Thank you for all of your help and feedback!

Today, I want to cover the extroverts, since I feel like they often get overlooked. I think the internet especially needs to hear the extroverts’ side of the story, so I thought it fitting that they got to go first in this series.

Before starting, I want to say that because I received so many wonderful responses, it was hard to incorporate everything in this blog post. With that in mind, some responses are only quoted in part (though I took care to make sure nothing was taken out of context). I have also included at least one response from every participant.

So, introverts, are you ready to dive into the world of extroverts and learn something new?
