Reader Survey (+ Starbucks Gift Card Giveaway!)

Good morning and happy Monday, friends!

I hope you had a nice weekend! We’ve had some milder (not too chilly) days here in Minnesota lately, which has been nice! I really love fall but it is hard not to think about the harsher season that chases right after it. 😉

We had a 4-day weekend this past weekend, which was such a blessing! The previous weeks had been such a rush of busyness and I was really aching for that quiet, peaceful time to reset and relax.

Time off is wonderful for so many reasons, but I especially like it because it gives me the space to reevaluate different projects and the direction I’m going with them!

This blog is one of those things. With the school year kicking off (and now in full swing), it can be a tricky season for me to find time to write. But I love it. And I want to keep writing! I just can’t see myself giving up blogging anytime soon!


However, I do want to put feelers out there and see where you’re at, friend! I want this space to be an encouragement and a safe, thoughtful place for us to come together.

As I state in my “About” page, Just Bee was officially launched in 2014 as a lifestyle blog encouraging women to savor beauty in the simple and the everyday, and celebrate lives full to the brim with joy and purpose: in marriage and friendships, in lifelong learning, and in the home. My goal is that this space encourages you, uplifts you, and inspires you as you join in on this grand adventure we call life!

So, I want to know how this blog is affecting you, encouraging you, etc….and I’d also love to hear what you’ve been thinking, and what it is you’d like to see more of on this site. After all, a community is made up of a variety of members and strengthened by their different voices!


That’s why I’m doing a reader survey today! It’s been a while since my last one (in March!) and it’s time to take the temperature of this blog. 🙂 Plus, there is a giveaway for a gift card involved! More on that below.

Ideally, you and I would be sitting down for a coffee date to chat – not sitting behind two separate computers… 😉 But I am so glad you are here even if we can’t get together in person! Let’s jump into this brief reader survey as conversationally and openly as possible! 🙂

** Before you start, I wanted to mention that if you choose to, you can enter your name with your email address to be entered to win a $10 Starbucks gift card!! **

Thanks in advance for your responses!! I really look forward to reading them and can’t wait to choose the winner of the Starbucks gift card! I’ll give it around 1-2 weeks before selecting the winner. Even if we can’t grab coffee together in real life, you might as well enjoy coffee on me anyway. 😉
