Dropping by with a quick note to say thank you so much to everyone who took the survey, emailed me, or gave feedback in the comments. There was an overwhelming response and it means so much to me that you care enough about Elana Lyn to share your thoughts. I’ve decided to make a few key changes and, in the spirit of transparency, I’m sharing them with you!
- Fewer Guest Posts: When I first started accepting guest posts, it was because I wanted to provide advice from other people’s perspectives. Some of my favorite recent posts (such as the post on toxic relationships, reducing negative thinking, and journal prompts) have come from that. But a lot of people said they miss hearing my voice (thank you!) and point of view on the blog. In the spirit of transparency again, one of the reason’s I wasn’t writing quite as much is because I’ve been doing so much freelance writing. But I started this blog because I love writing and sharing my advice…so get ready to hear a lot more from me but possibly at a lower frequency.
- Less NYC and Fitness Files Posts: I’m enamored with New York. But I can see that if you aren’t living in NYC those posts aren’t very relevant to you…and might make you majorly crave a brunch you can’t eat or a barre class you can’t go to. So I’ll be reducing the content to once a month or less. (But I’ve created a long guide of my favorite places in NYC!)
- A New Series: Lots of people wanted an Ask Elana series where I share my advice to your specific questions. I’m so excited and humbled that people wanted to hear what I have to say about careers/relationships/wellness/life. So I’ll be starting an Ask Elana column. Email me your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org!
- More Career Advice Posts: I’ve been writing lots and lots of career advice for other sites but I’ll start writing more for Elana Lyn. They are my favorite posts too!
Thank you again! Elana Lyn is my creative space and happy place on the internet. Thank you for helping me make it the best it can be.
