APW 2011 Reader Survey! by Meg Keene ** Update: I’ve opened the survey for 250 more responses, so the West Coast can get in, so go, now. Side note: y’all always stay exactly statistically the same no matter how long the surveys are open (go figure), but I want everyone to be able to give me their two cents, yes? Yes! Go!** You Guys! It’s time for the 2011 APW reader survey! I’m saying this with a lot of excitement, because last year I learned that you guys like a good survey as much as I do. You want to tell me your opinions, and I like that in a person. So! This is the way it works. There are 1,000 responses for this survey. Last year Team Practical filled up those responses in 12 hours, and then people were pissed that they didn’t get to participate. So! To be forewarned is to have four arms (or something like that). If you want to participate in the survey and tell me all your opinions (and I hope you do), you might want to go ahead and do that, um, now. Details. Since I know most of you read the site over your coffee, I’ve made a coffee length survey. It will take you about 5 minutes, 7 minutes if you think really, really hard about your answers. The first part is all demographic information, and the second is your feedback on the site (what you love, where you want it to go), and the future site… you know, the one that’s more about marriage and families, and that I’ll start working on once I’m done with the APW Book. So tell all. And when you get to the one fill in the blank question, be nice, ok? Lauren, Alyssa, and I are real people and we’ll read your answers and think hard about them. And when you call us stupid c*nts, it makes us cry real tears. Just sayn’. Thank you, the end. GO GIVE ME YOUR OPINIONS ALREADY. Smooches, Meg Picture: Last year, Jamie of Cactus and Quail made us these amazing charts of all the survey data. This year she’s very pregnant (eeeee!), so don’t hold your breath.
