We're constantly looking for ways to make Wise Bread more useful for you.  That's why your opinion is so important to us.

Please help us out by filling out this short Wise Bread reader survey. Tell us a bit about yourself and what you want to see on Wise Bread. Do you want more investment tips or simple living advice? (Please say more ninjas. It's not technically an option but you can write it in.)

Participants will get entered in a random drawing to win a $50 Amazon gift certificate! Deadline to enter is April 30th.

If you want to participate in the drawing, please provide your email address so we can notify you if you win.

Apparently, "You have submitted the maximum number of entries. Check submission guidelines"

I guess you are doing it on IP address, and as I am on a VPN connection to the Mothership, I can't register. Tried two email addresses. oh well bye bye potential $50

I'm sorry about that Jez.  =(

I'll talk to our tech guru to see if we can change that.

It said I had reached the maximum number of entries. Hope you can get it fixed so you get the feedback you're looking for!

One thing that I would like to see corrected is to not have your
website reset to the top of the page when you go back to the main page of your site.
If I am half way down your main page and click a link to a story, once done with the story if I now hit the back key it should take me back to the main page, half way down the page. Instead what it does is reset me back to the top of the page.

I agree with davedgd on the page reset issue. Also, I would like to see a few more personal finance articles written.

The IP restriction should be removed. Please try again and let us know if it's still a problem. Thank you!!

First off, I'd like to say that this is one of my favorite PF blogs. It's easy to read, visually, and the stories and insights by the PF bloggers are wonderful and easy to read. Thank you.

The things I would like a little bit more on are "special deals" or at least links to interesting deals that I may be interested in.

I'd also like to see a little bit more on "investing". What are the pros and cons of investing in stocks, mutual funds, real estate, etc. I'd love to know the difference from someone with some insight into this.

Please lose the click for full story link. If the headline doesn't appeal, I won't click the link. I'd rather see the entire article than a half-posting.

I agree with Chris -- more personal finance articles.

Would like more simple living articles. This is my new favorite topic. Also, I agree with the home page reset issue. Sometimes I don't even click on Wise Bread because I dislike having to wait for the home page to quit jumping from where I am to the top of the page. That's my $.02! Thanks.

I don't think the forums are highlighted enough on the homepage and they are a great resource and tool. Maybe highlight a "hot topic" on the homepage, a thread that is generating a lot of activity.

Here's a thought. You're a pretty high-volume blog as far as entries are concerned. I've seen other blogs break up their RSS feeds by topic so you could pick what was relevant to you, and not be inundated by everything at once.

For instance, I subscribe to your feeds, and if I've not checked them for a week, there may be a dozen entries. If you had separate feeds, I could just check the special offers at first, and wade through the green living advice later. Or I could choose not to receive investment entries at all if I didn't like those.

Just an idea.

I agree with keeping and/or adding more simplified living tips at home or work...

Personally, I think the blog is great, but I'd appreciate it if your images, like the one today, didn't creep me out with thoughts of Scientology. I kept looking closer to find the giant volcano behind the people.

...wait, am I the only one that did that?

I would like to see more personal finance and simple living stories. I really do enjoy the articles (via RSS reader)! Thanks!

You all do a wonderful job of pulling diverse stories and topics into this blog to keep Wisebread relevant to everyone from the struggling student to those with a six-figure income. My only suggestion would be to have a way to save stories I like on Wisebread to My Account or My Favorites. Then to have a way to customize with folders. I would love to be able to save the fab recipies Myscha comes up with as well as the great shopping tips from Lynsey in an organized manor so I can flip to them quickly when I am cooking or researching a purchase. Other then that keep up the great work this is my go to blog for not just finances but all the other fun stuff that makes life interesting! :)

There are many times that I would like to print an article so I can file it away for future reference. However, being frugal, I usually don't because I don't want to have to print out all the pictures and advertisements.(Using way too much color ink and quite a bit of black ink too.)Another thing that would be great is if we could create our own "filing cabinets" on this web site. You can see an example of what I'm trying to descibe on kraftfoods.com . If you click on a recipe and look on the right hand side you see the printer friendly link and then the "recipe box" link which would be equivalent to the "filing cabinet link" or whatever you chose to call it. Thanks for listening. =0)

I just now realized the comment before me was talking about the same thing when I was commenting about the "File cabinet". So I guess my only idea is the printer friendly link. Sorry Maureen.
