I’d Like to Get to Know You Giveaway.

You, my readers, are important to me.   Happily, my readership is growing steadily every single day.  I am humbled and amazed that so many people tune in to my blog on a regular basis.  I would like to get to know you as a group a little bit better so I can create bracelet and jewelry making content you want to see and read.

I have put together a short, simple survey through Zoomerang to get a feel for who you are as  jewelry makers, why you visit my blog & what you would like to see in the future.

This is who I think reads Make Bracelets… I may be proven totally wrong.

Judging from the keywords I rank for, the creative websites I submit to and how I Search Engine Optimize my blog and YouTube Videos,  I think the bulk of my readers are beginner to intermediate beaders who make jewelry as a hobby, are just starting to sell jewelry or are passionately crafty, creative people who dabble in different hobbies where you can use your hands.  Especially, people who want to learn to make bracelets  – specifically beaded wrap bracelets.

Then, there is a group of you who are accomplished jewelry makers, generally addicted to beads and baubles,  who have been successfully selling your jewelry through a variety of outlets for some time.  I am always blown away by what you create and I have indeed learned a great deal from all of you in this group.

I’m sure there is  a set of folks reading my blog that I would be totally surprised about?!  I have indeed encountered many neat and unique people from all over the world in all sorts of professions.

So – I have a bribe I mean giveaway to entice you to fill out my survey.

I am putting together a pretty gift box of special beads, findings and stringing material.  It will be a surprise as to the contents of the gift box because as I write this, I have not designed it completely – but I have a good idea.  It will be really nice!

Click the link below to complete the short survey  so I can create awesome content for you and hit the mark (most of the time) with my posts.  It is only 5 quick questions and should take you only a minute or so.  Your responses are completely anonymous.  You must leave a comment in the comments box by clicking on the comments link at the top of this blog post and let me know you have completed the survey.  Then, I  can include you in the giveaway!  This post will be up through Sunday the 26th.  And yes, if you are outside the USA, you are included in this giveaway opportunity!

I want to hear from everyone!


Thank You! Thank You!
