Please Take My 2011 Reader Survey

I want to make my blog more relevant to your needs and interests. To do that, I need to know more about YOU. As a result, I have created my 2011 Reader Survey.

Screen Shot of 2011 Survey

Would you please take a few minutes to fill out the survey? By doing so, you will ultimately be helping yourself. Why? Because you will be helping me make my posts even more interesting and relevant to you.

Your input is important to me. The survey is easy to fill out. The survey results are completely anonymous. I can’t tell who said want. And it will only take five minutes of your time.

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Cool idea, I think my son would be more interested in the Bible if he could listen to it on his iPod. Good luck to all commenters!

    Great blog that I was just introduced to by my brother in law!!! I’ve enjoyed catching up on your previous posts! I’m not currently on twitter. Thanks for letting me complete your survey!

    Michael (don’t know you well enough to call you Mike, yet!),
    Thanks for the opportunity to win the audio Bible – something I was just thinking I’d like to have for my morning commute, by the way – but, more than that, thank you for this site and the great source of information and inspiration you provide. My wife and I are really enjoying your tweets and your posts!

  • John J Volk (gort999)

    I took your survey. If I win the audio bible I will use it for my Mother-In-Law who is bedfast so she can hear the Word of God read to her. Thanks for the survey and the chance to win an audio Bible.

    I took the survey. I teach college and work at an academic library, so I especially enjoy your posts on productivity and publishing. Like everyone else, I have a master’s thesis (gathering dust) that I just know would make a great book. Ha!

  • Carmenjoyce

    You have been an inspiration to me. I am 83 and have journaled for years. I have compiled these into a devotional book which I produced on my computer at home and gave to a few people. Would like to be able to publish it for future generations to read. That is in the Lord’s hands – if He wants it done He will provide. Thank you so much for your many insights. Especially enjoyed your insight re “introverted leaders”! Thank you for all you do. I do belong to Booksneeze. Recently was given a kindle so am starting some reading on that.

    • Michael Hyatt

      I love that you are 83 and doing all this. Awesome!

  • Cheri

    Great Survey. Reminder to do one on my blog! @advinthekitchen

    Hi Michael,
    I just completed the survey.

    Thanks for your great blog. I’m enjoying getting to read more blog posts in 2011 that you are posting.

    No need to enter me into the contest for the audio Bible.


  • LexieS

    You were one of the inspirations when I started my blog in 2005. I found you via Barbara Curtis. You both used Typepad, so I went with them. (I haven’t followed you to WordPress yet. Typepad has great supprort.)

    Your blog showed the value of social media and how people in large organizations can use social media effectively.

    I’ve referenced your site at writers conferences where I taught on social media, to my Sr. Pastor as a model for his blog (and because of your leadership posts) and to friends.

    On a personal note, I value your parenting input, having 5 kids (4 girls) myself.

    All that said, keep doing what you’re doing. It blesses many.

    • Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Lexie. I appreciate the encouragement!

    Mike – “How do I read your blog?” RSS , email or blog. Neither of those. I actually set as my homepage last year because I wanted to have something positive to start my day every day. I originally had my home page set up as a news channel and found that I got lost in the depressing news that was happening everyday. I made a New Years resolution to limit the amount of negative “junk” that comes into my head, especially first thing in the morning. I changed my setting on January 2, 2010 and I don’t plan on changing it anytime soon! So thank you for the info, but you might want to add “other” to that question!

    • Michael Hyatt

      Wow! I don’t even have my own blog set as my home page!

      • Bwenman

        Haha! Does that make me lame?

        • Michael Hyatt

          No, you are my hero!

          • Bwenman

            Well in that case – — I booked Governor Walker from Wisconsin to be the keynote speaker at a charity event in May and it seems that might just be a little controversial right now! Know anyone who could take his place??? Just kidding….. unless of course you do, then I’m not kidding. It’s crazy living in Wisconsin these days! Seriously, thanks for the inspiration that you add to my day – every day!

  • Amy

    I always enjoy reading your blog and I appreciate that you seek feedback from your readers. As on any survey, not all the options are listed. You might consider adding “other ministry leader” under church leadership involvement. It seems to jump from paid staff or elder/deacon to small group or youth leader. Leadership in other ministries is omitted. Adding that category might provide more accurate demographics for your survey.

  • Blair

    Always love reading your posts Mike… now if I can only get into commenting more!
    Keep up the great articles.

  • guy m williams

    Like all, thanks for this. I appreciate the opportunity to contribute. Plus, I enjoy reading the annual survey results post.

  • TheSaint08D

    Reading the results of your Survey was amusing to me because I’m the opposite of yourresults on almost every single question bar maybe 2

    I agree. I am the same way. I have months where I don’t touch my
    blog(s), and then I have time and inspiration to blog. My recipe blog is
    currently getting the most attention.

    Dear Michael, can I use your questionnaire for building an analogous survey for my site?

    • Michael Hyatt

      Sure. Have at it.

      • Takis Athanassiou

        Thank you very much, Michael. I really appreciate your help.

    I wish you would have a Pinterest button. I pin all the articles that I want to refer to. It helps keep me organized.

    • Michael Hyatt

      I tried it for a while. It was rarely used, so I removed it in the interest of less clutter. Thanks.
