Due to my background in Sociology I find polls fascinating, so the title warranted the extra exclamation mark. You may not agree, but read on just in case.
Here are the results of the very official Sweet Madeleine blog poll
Fully 34% of you told me exactly what I want to hear, which is DO WHAT YOU WANT, Madeleine! Yesssss. I love that 34% of this audience is made up of enablers.
25% said they wanted to hear stuff, but not in a BUY THIS BUY THIS PLEASE BUY THIS have I mentioned I’m selling something? BUY THIS! type way. Which, I mean fair enough. Good lord that’s obnoxious, hey?
Around 18% of you wanted to hear everything. Everything! Seriously? You’re my new favourites. I am having tee-shirts made for the 18%.
22% said an 80/20 split of regular/book content would be great, and 18% more said that not only do they want to hear it all, they want to go out into the world and preach my hippie gospel!
Aaaand my favourite result of the day: 1 single, solitary person checked the box for the option that read :Eff you and your mother-effing book, Madeleine. I don’t come here to read about baking soda!
Do you know what this means? Adam really DOES read here!
Anyway, in all seriousness, thank you. This helped me solidify a clearer idea of what this endeavor will look like, including a few posts about the process (that sounds really dry, but I promise you entertainment!), and even four weeks of giveaways leading up to and including the release date on April 15. So!
Thank you 🙂
P.S. To that one person: YOU are my new favourite. Baking soda inDEED.
Was it YOU? Reveal yourself!
In defense of Adam I will admit it was me. It wasn’t easy to click, but on the scale of book to no book I did want to pick the most no book option. As much as it pained me to do so with the wording of the response.
Let me explain. I’m new to your blog. I’m really enjoying your writing. I have a 20-month old and also live, as you are about to, in a wintery Canadian city (2 prov’s over). So I relate to you on those subjects.
Since I’ve been reading there have been very few ‘baking soda’ posts, so I’m actually really not sure whether it would hold my interest.
I enjoyed reading about your Nopoo, once, but I couldn’t read about that all the time.
Still, I do enjoy your writing and respect tht others want to hear about your book and you deserve to promote. (cuz, holy crap you wrote a frickin book).
So don’t worry, I’m not leaving. Heck, in some ways, now I’m more curious than ever about ‘baking soda’.
Oh my gosh I never replied To this and now I feel like a total dick! I was totally joking with the “reveal yourself!” bit- you are 100% entitled to not care at all about my book! You’re fabulous for bring honest, and hilarious for confessing in such a sweet way. Still my favourite! 😉
