      Hi, yes! We are temporarily disabling them for now as we’re working on a couple related bugs πŸ™‚

    Hi Kari. I love taking quizzes and urs is one of the best sites. Meaningful, insightful quizzes, good spelling and grammar, lovely pics and user-friendly site. Also appreciate the positive non-judgmental way you express different results.
    When Tickle shut down I thought I’d never find another one I’d like as much -till I found blogthings. I have really enjoyed ur quizzes and wanted to thank you for some time. Especially love the pics you select, so apt and creative. Pass on my thanks to Mr.Blogthings also, a programmer myself I can appreciate his work. Keep up the good work!

    On question 5 of “Where Does Your Holiday Spirit Come From the word” the word “smell” is in front of the words “of the Christmas Tree” instead of sight.

      Good catch! I had updated some but not all of the quiz to bigger, more modern images. All fixed now. Thanks for the heads up πŸ™‚

    Hi Ms. Kari,

    I have a question about the images you use in your blog. Do you credit them? I have a blog actually and I do not know whether I should credit them..
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    1. kari Post author

      No, I buy them on Shutterstock, and no crediting is required because I have purchased the rights to use them. If you want to use images legally, you will either have to buy them like I did or search for public domain / Creative Commons images and credit appropriately. Hope this helps πŸ™‚

    Dear Ms. Kari Sullivan,
    What do you do with the vast data that you are able to easily collect from your website? In a world where personal privacy is crudely invaded and dismissed by governments and companies, one cannot help but wonder about the avenues through which these authorities obtain their multitude of information. Please consider what role you may be unwittingly playing in the struggle for privacy. However, I would like to commend you on your website which does not require users to log in in order to access it. May Internet anonymity prevail.
    Thank you.

      Thanks for your question. We only collect anonymous, aggregate data via Google Analytics, which is used to improve the user experience of our site. This is considered a non-controversial standard industry practice, and if it is a concern for you, I encourage you to research how to opt out of being tracked on all sites by Google Analytics.

    We can’t find what you’re looking for is what I get when clicking submit on the what ocean are you quiz.

    1. kari Post author

      Thanks! Some of these % questions got messed up with a code refresh… I will have Mr. Blogthings look at it πŸ™‚

    The what sign is your brain link to the blogthings blog doesn’t work right. I wonder why it took me this long to report it.

    1. kari Post author

      This should work now, or in a few minutes when the database updates. Please let me know if it doesn’t, and I appreciate all your bug reports πŸ™‚ Thank you so much!

  7. Amanda

    this is my favorite website. i love all the quizzes here. the first quiz that i played at blogthings was : Are you a good student?; i still remember, and since then, it has become my favorite. i visit this website everyday. πŸ˜€

  8. Ahtnamas

    …oh, I searched online how to find the RSS feed link… Sorry, found it. πŸ˜›

    Again, love it all! Hope you’re having a great autumn, Keri. πŸ™‚

  9. Ahtnamas

    Hello Kari, πŸ™‚

    I searched on the Blogthings website and I couldn’t find the RSS/feed section. Also, I don’t do StumbledUpon, Facebook, or Twitter. If I could add you to My Yahoo, that would be awesome. πŸ™‚

    Love your blog! Take care.

  10. Kwanyin

    Hi Kari, my name is Kwanyin and i’ve been a big fan of your quizzes since I was 12. Now i’m 17 and I would like to do the same thing you do, make fun quizzes for people to enjoy. How long have you been writing quizzes? What inspired you to write quizzes? Was it your major in college? And how did you get your own site? You can email me if you don’t want to comment on the page because i’m really curious and interested in doing this. Not as a career but you know something fun on the side.

    1. kari Post author

      You are so sweet! Thanks for all your kind words.

      My only advice about quizzes is to start writing and keep practicing. It’s not about any background in particular – just writing from your heart and having your own voice πŸ™‚

  11. Lisa

    I noticed a lot of quizzes I have taken in the past are missing (e.g. 100 Question Purity Test, How Evil Are You?, How Sketchy Are You?, etc.). What happened to them?

    1. kari Post author

      We had to remove them in order to keep the advertising up and running on the site. I didn’t like doing it, that’s for sure!

  12. Nat Fre

    I think blog things is a place to renew and express yourself, with a variety of quizzes that would take you a day just to do the ones you like! It is a great experience at home, at work, or jus hanging out somewhere. So it’s a great site πŸ™‚

  13. Joe Aka-Indy

    Maybe I’m overly concerned about this, but one thing that has bothered me is that when I take a quiz, then share it to FB, the thumbnail pic that goes with it is always a female. Maybe women do make up the majority of fans, but not ALL fans. Just sayin’..

    1. kari Post author

      Thanks for the feedback! I do try to present a diversity of images (ethnicity, body type, gender, etc), but (a) the majority of good stock art I can get on my budget is female focused and (b) quizzes that feature images of men are rarely posted and end up being quite unpopular on the site overall πŸ™‚

    I’d like to add a link to Blogthings to my blog. OK? And, it would be cool if the link could be updated automatically…………………………….just an idea πŸ™‚

    1. kari Post author

      Definitely cool if you add a link! Thanks so much. I will have to think about making a dynamic one in the future πŸ™‚

  16. carita

    It would be cool if we had a place to store all of the results of our quizzes on the site, do you think you could arrange that?

    Thank you!

    And Happy New Year to everyone: )

    1. kari Post author

      What a great idea! Thanks for suggesting it πŸ™‚ I will add it to my list of possibilities.

      Happy new year. Thanks for being a friend to Blogthings!

  17. Carrie

    Hi people!!!

    There haven’t been any new quizzes in a very long time! Are you guys OK? Will there be any new quizzes anytime soon? I love your site, please come back with new quizzes! πŸ™‚ cheers!

    1. kari Post author

      I am currently working on other things for Blogthings, including streamlining the new quiz process for myself. Hopefully soonish for new quizzes – look for them sometime in 2013!

  18. Meghan

    Are there going to be any new quizzes soon? I visit this website all the time, but there doesn’t seem to be any updates or new quizzes. I miss that πŸ™

  19. lala

    Hi! πŸ™‚ I’m a huge fan of blogthings but I was wondering…how come you’ve stopped making these quizzes? I really miss going to blogthings daily and taking the fun new quizzes there πŸ™

  20. Maria JoΓ£o

    Hi!
    I noticed that there haven’t been any new quizzes added to Blogthings for a long time… Are you going to start posting again or is the site going to be discontinued?

  21. justme

    I’m responding here because I didn’t see a form or link to respond to the personality quiz, “You Are an Inspiring and Compassionate Shoe”. I couldn’t believe how spot on my result was! And all from choosing a shoe… LOL πŸ˜›

  22. Anna

    I’d like to know which direction this site is going. There doesn’t seem to be a link to the Blog from the main site anymore, so I’m wondering if the Blog will be discontinued.
    And you’re showing popular quizzes instead of new ones. I had to do a bit of poking around to find this.

      Hi Anna,

      For now, we’re working on making the quizzes we already have up easier to take and easier to share. While we’re doing that, we won’t have any new quizzes added. I hope you like the changes we make! πŸ™‚

  23. Lulu

    I thought an idea for a quiz could be “What perfume are you?” or “What celebrity perfume are you?” or “What kind of perfume are you?” like romantic, fruity, citrus, woody, floral, oceanic, spicy, or fresh! πŸ™‚

  24. Carrie

    Hey there! Happy new year! I had a wee shock when I went onto your site and didn’t find a new quiz! hope you are doing ok and hope there’ll be new quizzes! you’re not gonna stop making quizzes, right?

    Cheers!

      1. Marion

        I have taken every single one of them, multiple times. Won’t you create any new quizzes? πŸ™

  25. Someone

    Hi πŸ™‚ I just want to say what an amazing site this is! πŸ˜€ I love it, I go here daily! πŸ™‚ Keep up the awesome quizzes. BTW, I loved today’s. What Egyptian goddess are you? It was fun! πŸ˜‰

    1. kari Post author

      Awww, thank you so much! I’m glad you enjoy the quizzes. I really appreciate your support. The Egyptian one is especially close to my heart πŸ™‚

  26. kari Post author

    More Jane Austin quizzes sound like a good idea. That first one I did was just for fun, and I agree that some of more substance would be interesting.

  27. Maddie

    I love all your quizzes, especially the image ones. The ones with images are so true!! I don’t know how you make such great quizzes!!

  28. Andrea

    Hey
    Really glad to see someone wants quizzes to do with Jane Austen and that kinda stuff on blogthings(which rocks) but there was only one quiz and even that was a bit rubbish! :p

    Email me or something if you would like some help in making a quiz to do with what Haleema said.
    I am british

  29. Haleema

    Hey!!!!!!!!!!

    Could you possibly do some quizzes relating to Pride and Prejudice,Jane Austen or the Regency times?
    That would be really fun!

  30. Lori

    Kari-
    I am the Director of Marketing with Lava Lite, LLC and would like to link your personality quiz regarding Lava lamps to our blog on our site. With your permission, I will link it – please advise if this is acceptable.

    Peace, Love and Lava!

  31. Mirime :))

    Hi there, I would be really happy if blogthings,com could have quizzes about what character one would be from Harry Potter and/or Lord of the Rings. I love blogthings.com and come here nearly every day to take one or more quizzes and the new quizzes are always fun. Some of them are really good and insightful, others are just for fun. I have seen character quizzes based on Harry Potter and LOTR characters elsewhere on the net, but, I think blogthings is a lot better than most of the other sites that offer these character quizzes, so it would be fantastic if you could do any such quizzes for the blogthings users :)) Thank you so much for your lovely work! All the best – Mirime :)))

  32. Azalea

    That’s great! Perhaps in time I will take all 1,100(+) blogthings quizzes. I like your creativity and insight, and my favorite quizzes are the Psychology and Food ones. Maybe you could do an Enneagrams test!

  33. Azalea

    Who are you? Are you a journalist? A psychologist? A graphic artist? Your quizzes alternate from fun to serious, flirty to insightful. What inspired you to create this website? What inspires you to create your quizzes? Is this a team of people, or just one dedicated, versatile person?

    1. kari Post author

      I am just one person who loves to write personality quizzes. I’ve written all the quizzes on Blogthings. It’s a project I started in 2004 – so I guess you can say that I’m quite dedicated!

      I get inspired by everything around me, and the continuing research being done by personality psychologists. I find the differences between individuals to be fascinating.

      Thanks for all your great questions.
