Here’s the link to the #Blogchat survey, thank you for helping me out!
A few weeks ago during #Blogchat, we were discussing how you should create blog content that your readers are interested in. And Collin asked how could you know for sure who your readers are and what they are interested in? I told him that you could always ASK them, by doing a survey and using a site like Survey Monkey to create one for you. Survey Monkey offers a free option, and surveying your readers is a great way to learn more about them!
Well recently I was having a conversation with someone about #Blogchat and I lamented the fact that I really had no way of knowing how many people are following #Blogchat that don’t participate. I know how many active participants #Blogchat has, but I have no idea how many people are actively WATCHING the #Blogchat stream, but not joining in.
And then I remembered that I had suggested to #Blogchat that they use Survey Monkey to learn more about their blog readers, so maybe I could follow my own advice about #Blogchat 😉
So what I’ve done is created a VERY short survey that’s designed to tell me more about the people that follow #Blogchat. It will let me know basic information like your age and gender (don’t worry, I won’t be asking for your name or email so there’s nothing that will tell me who is answering what), as well as information like if you blog for a company, or just for yourself. Also, there’s an option that will let you tell me what topic you’d like to see #Blogchat cover in the future.
This survey is very important and will offer several benefits:
1 – It will give me a better idea of WHO is following #Blogchat, and for the first time will give me an idea of how big the #Blogchat community really is.
2 – It will give me a better idea of whether or not #Blogchat needs to focus on ‘personal’ or ‘business blogging’ topics.
3 – It will give me a better idea of what topics y’all want to see covered in #Blogchat.
4 – It will give me a better idea of who I need to bring on as co-host to address those topics.
And there’s also a couple of other reasons why I wanted to do this survey that I can’t talk about just yet, but that will definitely benefit the #Blogchat community!
So please take a minute or two to complete this survey, it really will help me tremendously. Here’s the link to the survey. If you can, please RT the survey link to others, as the more responses we can get, the better the data collected. I will of course share the data with everyone here and on Twitter!
Thank y’all so much!
