online survey

With ‘A Productive Pen,’ going into its third year of existence, I was thinking that it’s time to have a little chat with you, my readers first to thank you for the time and attention that you give when you read my blog. I appreciate all of the comments and the positive, loving feedback that I receive from you, my fabulous readers.

In an effort to make sure that you are getting the best reader experience possible, I’ve put together a quick survey here. I’ve taken much of the text of this from Darren Rowse over at ProBlogger. I’m following his “31 Days to Build a Better Blog” challenge with the amazing women at the SITS blog and Blog Frog. I am doing the survey out of sequence because of an incident  last week.

The time was right now, so I’m doing the survey now to ask you, my readers what you suggest for this blog as I move forward. I ascribe to the belief that you can get everything you want to the degree that you help other people get what they want. I have learned so much in the area of blogging, online marketing and running an online business and this blog is where I share what I am learning with my visitors.

Taking a moment to answer these questions helps both of us. Thanks in advance for your comments. I appreciate your time and your thoughts on how I can make this blog even better.

  • Topics – What are the topics (specific or general) you’d like to see me cover in the coming months on this blog? What are the main issues that you’re facing as a freelance writer, blogger or online marketer these days? What would you like to learn about or grow most in for the remainder of the year?
  • Types of Posts – reader questions, tutorials, case studies, short tips, guest posts, tool reviews…. have your say about what you’d like most/least
  • Posting Frequency – too many posts, not enough, just right?
  • Design – How do you like the design? What would you change, add, get rid of?
  • Blog Features – what kinds of things would make your reader experience better?
  • Community – Do you have an interest in connecting with other readers? Are there features that you’d like added to the blog help you connect more?
  • What Frustrates You about A Productive Pen? What is your favorite thing about it?
  • Other Ideas and Feedback – anything goes here, big or little.

The ‘Rules’ – Any feedback, suggestions, dreams or ideas that you have are welcome. While I can’t promise to respond to each comment or put every suggestion into place I make a commitment to you to read anything you have to say.

All that I ask in return is that you be honest, courteous and constructive with your comments and feedback. Thank you. ;-)
