Hello there! To answer your question on my FAQ page, at the time when I had drastically dyed my hair, people were often asking me about my hair dying experience, and wondering how to get a similar color, going from dark brown to light strawberry blonde, but doing it at home, like I did. It can be intimidating to try yourself. I dont think its a weird question. Is that wow. for me answering it, or for people who were curious about dying their own hair? The other questions on my FAQ page are also frequently asked, via e-mail or blog comments. Since I posted my FAQ page, Ive had to reply to less e-mails asking the same questions. Its been quite helpful. :) Mandi a m a n d a j o h n s o n • Heres Looking at Me, Kid • From: TypePad

Okeeee, I figured I would comment on this on the off-chance I could be of help to you and the direction of your blog! I know every reader comes for different reasons. I enjoy seeing the lifestyle posts. You care about the quality of your photography, each shot's pretty well composed and pretty. I know it's difficult to keep up that quality, since life isn't always pretty. :) I appreciate that, and feel like I know your family, and that's cool. I also really love your outfit posts. I'm glad you don't worry about doing them too often, and when you do, they are good quality. Also- realistic, easy, and fun food ideas. Activities you do with the kids... Pictures of around your house. Those are my main things I love that you post about. Now besides content, I really appreciate the quality I see here. There's no point in updating frequently if the stuff a blogger posts isn't relevant, or at least pretty. But you do a good job of making what you post pretty, and usually pretty relevant! :)
