Nothing like a reunion to cause some self-assessment.Â The other night I attended a cocktail party hosted by my first law firm, and while I was probably the only entrepreneur at the event, I know I was the only big bust blogger there. Having handed my business cards to everyone I spoke to, the next day I found myself viewing Hourglassy with the imagined critical eye of a first-time reader–and I wasn’t very satisfied.
One of the main purposes of Hourglassy is to share resources available for full-busted women, but by trying to get a post out each day, I find I have neglected pages like Clothing for Us. Another consequence of trying to have something new for you to read each day is that the depth and quality of the posts may be suffering.
Would you help me get some perspective? As I take a step back in order to improve Hourglassy‘s resource pages, this seems like a perfect time to find out what you’d like to see more (and less ) of on this blog. If I publish fewer posts, what should those posts contain? I’d also like to gain a clearer idea of who you are. So I’ve put together a short survey of 10 questions that should take you no more than 5 minutes to complete. Would you answer them so that Leah and I can improve your Hourglassy experience? Click here to take our survey!
Just fyi, your link on the clothes for us page for Modcloth is typo’d so doesn’t work.
Thanks–further evidence of my need to get these resource pages sorted out!
I have NO idea how you get a post out each day and run a business. I post to the blog once or twice a week because posts take such a long time to research and running the business is full on – do you sleep Darlene!?!?! I will happily fill out your survey. I think less could be more for both you and your readers. xx
I enjoy knowing there’s going to be something new every time I come here, but it’s not so good thinking that you’re unhappy with the content you’re producing or with how hard you’re working to get things out so regularly.
I’ve taken the survey, but I also wanted to comment because I didn’t do any explaining in the actual survey. I really enjoy the clothing aspect of Hourglassy because you seem to have a real handle on how your bust affects clothing. I don’t always pay attention to your advice (mostly because I love emphasising my boobs lol) but I always enjoy reading it.
What I dislike about this blog are the “Curve Cam” and “Back Interest” posts. I always think of how mortified I’d be if one of those photos was of me and I stumbled across it being taken apart and pointed out what I was doing wrong. I know that you have no malicious intent with it, but I guess I think that women get picked on enough for our choices without having Hourglassy point out that a visible bra band in a cutout back isn’t classy and so on. I suppose I don’t really understand the point. Is it “don’t make the same mistake as this woman”? Is it “see how common poorly fitting bras/clothing is”? I don’t know.
To complete my concrit sandwich (compliment, critique, compliment :P) I love the posts that look at the “emotional” parts of bustiness (or lack thereof). The fairy godmother posts, the “envying bigger busts” posts etc. I like seeing the thoughts and advice from women on how to deal with boobs emotionally, not just physically.
