Feedback Request

I’ve been plugging away at this blog for more than a year now. Mostly I write about what interests me, but sometimes I wonder what you’d like to read more of and what are your favorite topics.

Most of the feedback I get is in the comments, and posts with more comments stand out of course. Certain types of posts receive few to no comments though, so does that mean you, my readers, don’t care about those ones? My guess is that lack of comments doesn’t necessarily mean a lack of interest — just that you don’t have anything to add or maybe aren’t comfortable sharing your thoughts.

So I’d really like to hear from you. I’ve created a short survey so that I can find out just what interests you most about my blog, how I can increase conversation, and learn a little more about who you are.

You can take the survey RIGHT HERE!

You’ll be doing a big favor for me, but, if that isn’t enough, one person will win a copy of Fashion Scandinavia: Contemporary Cool by Dorothea Gundtoft!

It’s full of fascinating photos and interviews with established and up-and-coming designers from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland that are part of a new fashion movement. These designers are focused on simplicity, attention to detail and quality, sustainability, and ethical practices. You’ll be inspired reading this book and, I’m sure, find some new designers to watch.

CONGRATULATIONS GENEVIÈVE! I’LL BE IN TOUCH SOON!

To enter to win Fashion Scandinavia, simply:
• Take The Hourglass Files survey by Sunday, August 4, at midnight CST.
UPDATE: DRAWING IS NOW CLOSED.
• Leave your name and email address at the end of the survey.
• Sorry, this giveaway is for U.S. residents only (shipping/delivery time is 2-3 weeks).
• I’ll announce the random winner Wednesday, August 7, here on the blog.
