Happy Monday Loves! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I know that I said a blog post would only be up twice a week unless it was a special circumstance. Well, I felt like this would be a great week to ask y’all WHAT YOU WANT!

I started blogging years ago because my friends wanted me to blog. In fact, my blog was named, “My Friends Want Me to Blog” Blog! LOL! They all had children and had blogs to keep everyone updated, kind of like an online diary. They told me to blog about my infertility issues. I really WASN’T comfortable blogging about that, so I decided to blog about fashion. They DID like that too!

Eventually, the blog morphed into Style of Sam so I could have a creative outlet about my outfits – so cliche I know! However, I work in the hospital and dress very conservatively. I had TONS of outfit ideas NOT appropriate for the hospital, and my style is all over the place. I like bohemian, minimal, maximal, feminine, edgy, etc. Hence, the name of my blog, “Style of Sam”, seemed pretty appropriate.

My series, From Grandma with Love, was an instant favorite since I love vintage so much. I plan on continuing that, but I’d LOVE to hear what else you’d like to see from me! Currently, I have more organic/natural beauty and home blog posts lined up. Is that something you’d be interested in? (You can let me know in the comments.)

I made a quick survey, like FOUR questions quick, for you to share your thoughts! I’d love for you to tell me what YOU want (what you really really want – can’t help that the Spice Girls song keeps popping into my head)!! As a thank you, one person will be randomly selected to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card! YAY! :) —> Sorry but I’ve never done a survey monkey before, and I guess it’s anonymous!! Please leave your name in the comments if you did the survey so I can randomly pick from the comments!!

Take the survey here!

If you don’t want to take the survey, then just let me know what you want to see more of in the comments! Any feedback is appreciated.

And THANK YOU for taking the time to read and support this little online space of mine! It means more to me that than you could imagine! It’s so amazing to share my thoughts with so many people through the blog (as in not just my mom, MIL, and friends)! Okay y’all!!! Hope your week is off to a great start!!

  1. In looooove with that dress!!! It’s so fun reading the stories of how everyone started blogging and what keeps them doing it. And seeing how they evolve too.
    Off to take that survey for you!

      Thanks Meg!!! I know… it’s so fun to learn how everyone got their start in blogging! I feel like we’re some of the “older ones” who have been around for awhile!

      And thanks for doing the survey!

  2. Erin Fisher says:

    I took the survey. There were two choices for posts you’d like to see more or, in my case less of. I chose more sales but, also, would like to see less sponsored posts. I get why bloggers do them but, it would be nice if there were fewer of them.

    • Sam says:

      Thanks so much for taking the time to do the survey, Erin. I’m just curious. Would you mind sharing why you would like less sponsored posts? Do they seem less authentic to you?

  3. Kimberly C says:

    I love that dress!! Gorgeous!! I just took the survey :). It’s interesting how you started your blog. If your friends didn’t kind of push you into starting a blog, do you think you would’ve started on your own, I’m just curious if that’s ok?

    • Sam says:

      LOL! That’s such a good question, Kimberly! You know… I don’t know if I would have started a blog! I really loved reading other blogs. When I started it, my pictures never turned out how I thought they should in my head (and I hated taking pictures of myself), but my friends really liked the outfits. So, I kept going!

  4. Stephanie F says:

    Done with the survey. As mentioned there, love to read more about luxe for less!

    • Sam says:

      Thanks so much for doing the survey, Stephanie! I almost thought about stopping that series so I’m glad a few of y’all like it! :)

  5. Mica says:

    I did the survey Sam! I left a bit of a ramble about your how you motivate me to be more stylish without ever making me feel bad for not being so, so you’ll know that long ramble was from me, haha! :)

    This is a beautiful maxi dress too. I think your friends were onto a winner when you started your blog as I enjoy reading your life snippets just as much as admiring your stylish outfits! :)

    Have a great week!

      Thanks so much for always being such an awesome supporter Mica! :) You are truly the best! That ramble was so sweet, and I always appreciate your thoughts, honesty, and words.
