A few questions for you..my readers...

I've been wondering about a few things lately..and didn't know how to ask about them...

so..here's what I'd like to know about:

1. Music on a blog?? Do you love it /or hate it??

Myself personally..sometimes I totally avoid websites that have music on them because I have my own music tastes..but then there are a few blogs out there that are my faves and they do have music playing on them.
(Daisy Cottage and The Feathered Nest... for example) these blogs and their music selections are relaxing and not annoying to me..but blogs with wild music just..nope..forget it..can't stand it and I never stay long.
So...I was wondering..do you like "Garden Goose"..as is..with no music??..or would you like for me to "punch things up a bit" and add some light/easy listening music? So what's your opinion??


2. What changes would you like to see on my blog? ..if any??I can use ideas anytime..what would you like to see/read more about?

3. If I offered my photography work..an image a month featured on my blog as a signed print available to my readers..would you personally be interested ?? and what types of images are your favorites??
4. Any ideas and tips for making this blog more fun and attractive to you?? Any and all ideas to make this blog one of the "wow!" blogs in "blogland" are appreciated.(think Artful Blogging quality..a "wow!wow!" blog)


That should do it..thanks for answering any/all of my questions.

I really appreciate the fact that you have stopped by and visited with me today...
I desire to improve this blog and to make it fun for all my visitors.


Hugs,
~The Garden Goose!

I enjoy the music on the blogs but do avoid ones that are too loud or wild, even if I might normally listen to that my self at another time. I love to visit blogs for quiet time and the relaxing music that I have found so far is a welcome back-ground. And, I am finding music I have not heard before, so that is nice! I wish that it didn't stop though when you switch between pages, that's a bit annoying. Music has always played a big part in my life so I would use it on my own blog (which I hope to have soon!)

Music on a blog- can't stand it! It feels like someone is forcing their musical taste on me.
I really love your gardening stories (and photos) and recipes, and animal pictures. Overall I think you have a lovely blog...I just wish the font was bigger and a more neutral color than red. Sometimes it's painful to read. I also like when you show old antique things or interesting buys from sales.

I keep the sound down most of the time, so it's a delight to find a song I like on a stranger's blog and crank it up. :D

I second what themennobrarian says about your garden/home stories and the red font. Love the vintage illustrations!

I like quiet blogs --- and prefer ones without music. In fact, I generally turn the sound down on my computer when I go blog hopping. It's true that some very soft background music is nice, but sometimes I have more than one blog open at a time and if they both have music, it competes with one another.

I would really love it if you would share more about the business ventures you are involved in a the Garden Goose. And tell us the background 'how to's' that are going on with your garden creations.

You have a lovely blog --- and I like it 'just the way it is'.

I like your blog just how it is. I guess music is okay on blogs..but honestly it usually makes me jump when it starts and I turn off the sound most times. So I guess I would vote..no music..don't change a thing!
Have a great weekend!!

I love music on blogs because it gives a hint of your personality. I use my volume control to turn down music that's not my taste or to crank up the tunes I love. When I just want to browse quietly, I just turn it off.

I love the look of your blog! It's my first visit. I definitely have to dress up my blog after all the lovely ones I've seen.
