Hello, friends! Happy 2017! (cue noisemakers and confetti)

It’s been a little quiet around here because I took some much-needed time off over the holidays! October-December got a little intense, and I needed to just unplug, spend some face time with my family, and deep clean my crazy-cluttered house (and brain). I hope you all had a chance to unwind over the last few weeks as well, and that your holidays were full of joy, family, and good food!

I’m back now, and I’m feeling really excited about the new year and some fun recipe ideas I’ve been brainstorming! But…before we get to that…I NEED YOUR HELP.

2017 Reader Survey from SugarHero.com[Watercolor Rose Sugar Cookies]

If I’m being honest with you, I felt a little lost last year. I went through a “blogger identity crisis” and many times I questioned the direction I was taking. I mean, I know it’s not heart surgery, but I still want SugarHero to be the best possible site it can be, and I don’t always know what that looks like. So, to start out this new year, I want to learn more about YOU. I want to know about your blog reading habits, what you like about SugarHero, and what you would like me to do differently.

To help me plan SugarHero’s future, I’ve created a short survey form, and I would REALLY appreciate it if you would help me and take the survey. It’s mostly multiple choice, and it should only take about 5 minutes of your time. As a thank you, everyone who completes the survey will be entered to win a $50 gift card to Amazon! If you don’t care about the gift card, the survey can be completely anonymous, but if you want to be entered to win, please make sure you leave a valid email address in the last survey question so I can contact you if you’re the winner. (Fine print at the bottom of the post)

Thank you, in advance, for your help. My greatest joy in running this website has been finding a community of kind, fun, dessert-loving people, and my greatest hope for this year is to really expand the site and give you more of what you LOVE. So please, take the survey, and don’t hold back! Give me your honest feedback and help me get to know you better. The survey will be open through January 15. Thank you, thank you, thank you!


Regular dessert posting resumes next week—just in time for us all to forget any anti-sugar resolutions. (mwahahaha!)
