It’s All About You — Reader Survey Results
Two weeks ago I participated in the International Delurking Week and asked my regular readers to fill out a survey and post some thoughts about where my site has been going, and where they’d like for it to go in the future. Here are the results.
3 Times Out of 4
… you have dangly bits downstairs. Feel free to use the comments on this post as a pick up joint. Ladies — odds are in your favour. I think that ratio might be high for a tech blog, and I’m blaming it on the cat.
… and yes, I did purposely rotate the graph so that it didn’t look like Pac-man.
More Than 4 Times Out of 5
… you’re over the legal drinking age in the States. If you print out this post and ferment it for a month you’ll get a hell of a buzz.
7 Times Out of 10
… you have a blog of your own. This wasn’t that surprising to me — I write about blogging a lot. I also have a theory that the majority of people who regularly read blogs either have one of their own or at least try it.
3 Times Out of 5
… you’re using RSS to read the website. It would be interesting to cross-reference this to the number of readers who also blog. I have a theory that RSS is mostly used by bloggers — everyone else doesn’t know/care what it is.
This one was *very* interesting. Within 24 hours the majority of readers who would respond to this survey did. Within 72 hours 95% of the total responses were reached.
The pie charts were done using Adobe Illustrator and this guide from Modern Life is Rubbish.
The following readers mentioned their blogs in the comment section of the survey. If you missed out, drop a comment with your blog name on this post and I’ll update it to include you. The list is done in the oh-so-scientific first to last submitted format. Except for Beats Entropy which I jumped to the top of the list as a means of shameless promotion and because they know where I live.
