In the spirit of the new year, fresh starts, resolutions etc., I’m finally doing something I’ve been wanting to do for ages: an annual reader survey (and I’m pretty excited about it!).

Recently, I’ve been giving a lot of thought to what I want this space to be, how it’s grown, evolved, and my hopes for the site going forward. Going on four years ago now – which seems crazy – I bought a domain, and this little corner of the web got its start as a personal creative outlet and place to collect family recipes. I never imagined it would grow into what it is today – a full time, food blogging (dream) job.

I am so thankful for each of you for making that possible, and in return, I want this space to be inspiring, helpful, and full of recipes that you can’t wait to make. More than anything, in 2016, my hope is for Fork Knife Swoon to become more of a community. I want to hear from you! What you’re cooking, what recipes you’re pinning, your cooking triumphs and failures, whether I’m posting too many chocolate recipes… you name it. I want to get to know you better!

So while I already have some big plans for the site in the coming year, as I outline new content and features for 2016, I’d really appreciate your honest feedback. What you love, what you’d like to see more or less of, what you’d like to see change, recipe requests, etc. Really any feedback you’d like to share, both positive and negative (seriously!), would be incredibly helpful.

AND to thank you for taking the time to complete this survey – just 15 questions – I’ll be randomly giving away a $50 Amazon gift card to one reader.

Thanks so much!! I look forward to reading and sharing the responses soon!

xo, Laura
