I have really enjoyed seeing the results of the Help Engaged Marriage Grow Up the Right Way survey come in over the past few weeks. To date, a total of 74 responses were received, and I really appreciate it! Please note that the survey closes at 100 responses, so if you would like to add your thoughts there is still time.
I love writing the posts here at Engaged Marriage, and I am proud that virtually everything you read is original content. Most posts are written by me (Dustin), while we are occasionally treated to a guest post from a like-minded person with some valuable advice to share. By the way, if you have something you would like to share, please send me a message using the Contact form at the top of the page.
As much as I enjoy writing, it can be tough at times to know my audience and feel connected to you. It turns out this is pretty important when you are creating posts about marriage, sex, romance, money, etc. Everything here at Engaged Marriage is intended to reach you on a personal level and help you achieve the extraordinary in marriage and in life. It helps to know a bit about you when trying to meet this high standard.
This is where the survey idea came into play. I thought if I could get a few of the readers to share a little about themselves and their preferences for the site, I could make Engaged Marriage a better place for all of us.
I hope that the survey served this purpose (and continues to do so with your continued input). I want to give you a brief summary of the results, so you can see who your fellow readers are and what they think. Let’s see if this matches your own thoughts and preferences.
- Sex & Family Planning
- Finances & Careers
- Book & Product Reviews
- Marriage Preparation
- Individual Fulfillment
- Finances & Careers
- Links to Interesting Reads
I thought it was interesting that “Links to Interesting Reads” was chosen by 25% of respondents for a topic they wanted MORE of and also 25% for something they wanted LESS of. 🙂
I would really like to start working on developing an E-book soon. If you have specific thoughts on this topic, I would love to hear from you!
Like I mentioned above, it can be tough to write meaningful posts when your only feedback comes from reading your own words back to yourself. In order to help all of us get the most out of this site, I’d really love to form a community at Engaged Marriage.
To do your part, I’d simply ask that you leave comments on the posts that you read, sign up for E-Mail updates or an RSS subscription, follow me and interact on Twitter, and become a “fan” of the Engaged Marriage page on Facebook. I really see the Facebook page as a fantastic place for us all to interact.
Right now, please leave a comment to this post to say what you agree or disagree with from the survey results. Let me know what you would like to see from Engaged Marriage in the future. And, of course, you can still take the survey yourself until it reaches 100 respondents.

Dustin Riechmann created Engaged Marriage to help other married couples live a life they love (especially) when they feel too busy to make it happen. He has many passions, including sharing ways to enjoy an awesome marriage in 15 minutes a day, but his heart belongs with his wife Bethany and their three young kids.
