Survey Results!

Back around 100 posts in the middle of August, I surveyed you, the audience, to get some sense of who you are and what you like or dislike about the blog. It's been a while, but I thought it might be fun to share some of the results now that I've closed the survey down.

I'll save the marketing demographic results, except to note that it was interesting to me to know that about half of you are likely reading this on your laptop and the other half are staring at your phone right now. So hi there! I've put a few links in here to tweet at me and let me know your thoughts. Feel free to use them!

I asked what topics you found most interesting, and here are the results in a visual word cloud format. If something's missing, click this link and let me know!

I also learned that only a few of you have actually gone out and recommended the site to your friends. While I am curious if that has changed (based on statistics) in the past couple of months, I would love to know how to make it exactly what you are looking for.

I was heartened (and also disheartened of course) to know that the survey was nobody's first post to stumble upon (and think, "What in the world is this?"), and that most responders had read several posts, if not every single one. If these survey results are your first post to read, though, I recommend you browse some of the older posts (maybe start with the really popular ones), and then subscribe to the email list to make sure you never miss another one!

Speaking of email lists - I also asked how many of you already subscribed to the email list. Here's what that looked like:

So, several of you answered "No, but I probably should be" to that one. Have you subscribed yet? If not, I've made it easy - there's a page right here where you just pop in your email address and get these lovely updates every day in your inbox to read at your leisure. Or you can do it up there at the top right hand of the page. Either way, I love those that subscribe by email because you can always reply back to me and let me know what you're thinking.

Have a great weekend everyone!
