The Survey Results

Posted in: Uncategorized



Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to answer our survey about our blog. We got an overwhelming response, over 1000!, and it is great to get feedback from readers to understand what they want from this place. The survey answers clearly show that Toby Wigglebottom is the star of the blog and the main reason people keep coming back.

Next year, when I’m on maturity leave (I hear you have heaps of free time with a newborn, all they do is sleep, right?!) I want to post more consistently and of the things you love to see. I have had questions such as, ‘Why aren’t you posting photos from The Weekend That Was anymore?’ And the truth is, since Andrew moved to Adelaide, I haven’t been motivated to take the camera out on the weekends. But that will all change soon, The Weekend That Was will definitely be coming back in 2015 along with lots of other great posts you want to see and will hopefully enjoy.
