I get to feature a lot of different jewellery designers here on the blog and...
Just over a month ago I launched the Boho Blog readers survey, along with an amazing prize draw to win over £4,000 worth of wedding prizes. My reason for the survey was to ask you the readers what you thought of the blog so I could get a better understanding of what you liked and didn’t like to enable me to make some changes and push the bog forward, so making it more informative, entertaining and relevant to you the reader.
I had a great response from the survey and I have to say the results have made for very interesting reading. The blog is currently undergoing a bit of an overhaul, and it’s new layout will be launched in two weeks time, the design is pretty much staying the same, but how you find things and search for topics and articles will be completely changed. I will also be pushing my blog posts up to two a day, while adding in some new features for you………….exciting times ahead indeed for the Boho Blog!
So today I wanted to say thank you to everyone who filled in the survey, your answers have paved the way for the new look blog, and I am incredibly grateful to you all for tacking the time to help me.
In filling out the survey you were entered into a prize draw to win over £4,000 of wedding prizes, and today I am delighted to announce the winners of the prizes.
