    Thank you for asking your reader’s opinion. I do that on my blog but in a much less sophisticated way. My twitter name is missusb3. Thank you for the opportunity to win the audio Bible.

  • matt_steen

    I love that you do this each year… looking forward to seeing what this year brings.


    • Michael Hyatt

      I love doing it, too. The results are always fascinating to me. It is also GREAT raw material for posts.

    Thanks Mike – Great questions but more important is the fact that you write very valuable insightfull knowledge lessons based on your own experience. Your frame of reference lifts our spirits and touches our hearts to be and do good and also appreciate the gift of life and always very thank full to Jesus Christ.

    • Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Juan. I appreciate your kind words.

    Interesting survey, but as with all survey not every option covered. Blogging – I have spurts where I write blogs every day, then times when it’s every week, then monthly, then it gets pushed to the back because other things crowd in, then I start all over again. Doing much better with the photo blog – every day with a few lines of thought or reflection. Maybe an area you could consider. Twitter name – Wee Rant.

    • Michael Hyatt

      I should probably add an option that is just, “sporadic.” Thanks.

    • Elke Speliopoulos

      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. It must be winter, and the thought of comfort food is high. ;-)

  • Alicha

    What a great survey! I saw a couple of areas I’d like to improve in myself! (I was an English Lit major in college and I never read anymore…with 2 kids under 5 it’s rather difficult…but I MISS IT!)
    I enjoy your blog. It’s filled a void since Chip MacGregor went AWOL. By that admission, you get an idea of my life position so your blog doesn’t match up with my life a lot…and most of the Leadership posts I forward to my husband and my brother, the true leaders in my life…but on the other hand maybe your blog makes me a better follower, and better able to recognize good leaders. Thanks Mr Hyatt!

    • Michael Hyatt

      I wish Chip would come back t the blogosphere. I always enjoyed his take on things.

    Michael – Thank you for the opportunity of the gift. I’ve always liked your blog’s leadership posts. And I do love a good survey – this one was exactly the right length. One thing was missing for me, however, under church activity – I couldn’t check a box for lay leaders or pastor’s wives! I am the women’s ministry director as well as the worship pastors/executive pastor’s wife, but not on paid staff – you know the whole “two for one” concept :) May God bless you!

    You have a great blog, and I appreciate the time you take out of your schedule to help enrich the lives of other people. My husband and I were just saying this morning that it’s great to share information with others that can help them spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically! You can give someone $1,000 or you can share information with them that will help them make $1,000,000! My Pastor actually quoted one of your blog post in a recent sermon and posted a link to your site on his fb page. Have a GRAND weekend!

    Good morning Mike, My wife and I attended “re:create” this past week. I am very new to blogs, twitter, etc. I do, however, plan on wiping the cobwebs out of the grey matter, and take on new technologies. I do feel that this could be an integral part of connecting with potiential customers. My wife and run a pastor’s retret in Buena Vista, Co. God lead us here to build this, but it is our responsibility to inform as many chruch leaders as we can, in all of the ways that available to us. SO this being said I will be taking an active step towards expanding my horizons. Thanks Mike, I appreciated your presentation at re:create. Signed Kevin Ortenblad

While I’ve read that you have asked for one before, I haven’t seen the results, so it will be interesting to see what those results are and what you will do with the data you’ve collected. It’s wonderful that you are giving away the WOP Audio Bible! I’ve listened to some of it and it’s an amazing and dynamic production! It truly makes the Bible come alive.

      Yea, I thought about that, too, after I did it. The only thing I was concerned about is that it might skew the number of Christians who read my blog. But after 700 responses, it’s about the same as last year. (95% of my readers are Christians.)

    That was a pretty straight forward survey. I read your blogs via my connection to your page. I’m in the process of updating my blog/website to Standard and loving the editors calendar feature. Thanks for doing the heavy lifting.

  • Lana Vaughan

    Amazon has discounted The Word of Promise to $94.49. Strange price.

    • Michael Hyatt

      They have some inscrutable algorithm that they use on their pricing. I can never figure it out, but it seems to work for them!

  • Tom

  • asacredrebel

    Thank you for your blog and asking for your readers opinions. My twitter name is asacredrebel. It is wonderful you are giving away the bibles for such a little bit of input.

  • Katie Hart

    Clear, straightforward survey.


  • Lisa Copen

    I recommend your blog constantly. I have said, “This man has no reason to be able to find the time to blog daily–especially good blogs–so when he writes, I listen, because he is obviously doing a lot right!”


    • Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Lisa. I appreciate you making time to read my ramblings!

  • Mark Modesti

    I often recommend to business clients and associates that they read your blogs. I find them thoroughly practical and “field tested” I really think its great that you manage to share yourself in this way, even as a busy executive. Its inspiring.

    Michael, your dedication is inspiring. This is my favorite blog, it’s above and beyond in quality, both template and content wise. Keep it up :)

  • Anne Lang Bundy

    I appreciate that your leadership style remains so accessible, Mike. Thanks for the feedback survey.

    I’d be thrilled to receive The Word of Promise: Complete Audio Bible. Every time I listen to my New Testament Edition, I’m impressed by its quality (especially Revelation!), which well deserved the award as 2008 Christian Book of the Year from the Evangelical Christian Publisher Association. If I receive the Complete Bible, or eventually purchase it, I would certainly pass my NT along. And incidentally, I consider the NKJV the premier English translation. Nothing else comes close for accuracy, beauty of lyricism, and resource availability.

    Just completed the survey (and 2nd year to participate). Your blog is one of the few that I read (via email) along with Seth Godin and Ron Edmonson. I also checkout’s Swerve blog occasionally.

    One idea would be to create a Leadership / Productivity Podcast once a month. I absolutely love the Catalyst and Andy Stanley Leadership Podcasts.

    • Michael Hyatt

      I really should do a leadership podcast. Andy’s is one of my very favorites!

Hope that works for you (and for the free Bible!! :-)… Just thought you should know that the link isn’t working for some of us…. THANKS! Pat

    I’m a bit of an old fraud really, but I’d never actually buy a copy of an audio bible – I’m so fond of Paper (but not Perfect binding!). I love TN though, for the OSB alone. I followed the reading plan to do the whole Bible last year – thanks for that. The Beginners Guide to Twitter was very useful too.

    I did not know Michael Hyatt until after I signed up for Twitter to follow John Maxwell. He found me and followed me and I decided to check him out to see who he was. Wow! It was a life changing experience. I still remember I was in Wisconsin on vacation in 2009 when this occurred. I have followed Michael every day since and he has become one of the most influential people in my life and I have never met him (hopefully one day). What I like most is Michael adds value to many areas of my life. I really connect with him because I have interest in leadership, technology, productivity, health and fitness and now social media. I have completed three 1/2 Marathons since following Michael and will be doing my next at the Flying Pig in Cincinnati in May. I often wonder how he does it all. Maybe he can blog and tell us how he is able to accomplish so much in everyday.

    • Michael Hyatt

      Thanks for your kind words. I have been accused of having a clone. I wish!

    Mr. Hyatt, my name is @Gary Borgstede and I want to personally thank you for taking the time to write your outstanding blog! It has inspired me on many occasions and has also provided me with some very practical useful information for learning and growing. In fact, along with my pastor’s encouragement, your encouragement to authors to write a blog inspired me to finally take the time to figure out how to create a blog in WordPress and begin. Plus, your very useful tips for making blogs better such as inclusion of a comments policy, effective author bio, the importance of upper right blog landscape, and more has helped me to make my simple blog a little bettter, although I know that I still have a long way to go. Therefore, I want to say thanks again for taking the time to help others in their journey of growth and development! You have been a real help and blessing! Have a blessed weekend!

    • Michael Hyatt

    I always enjoy reading your blog. There is one note I would like to pass along though. The reason I follow your blog is because you started following me on Twitter. I’m not sure if it was because I am a pastor or what the connection was, but I noticed your name as a new Twitter follower of mine. As a result, I discovered your blog and have followed it since that day. It’s probably not the typical way to get blog followers, but it worked for you and I’m glad it did. I glean tons of information from your blog, including items such as productivity, leadership development, as well as new books I should consider reading. Your blog is very beneficial and from a ministry standpoint, I am very grateful for it.

    • Michael Hyatt

      That’s good to know. Thanks.

    Completed the survey. @drrandywillis

    A couple things I’ll add — I think I checked that I “occasionally” read on your blog posts (and maybe more now that the NFL season AND fantasy football is over!) and that I read them “on your blog.” I’d add that I follow your blog solely via Twitter (for whatever that’s worth).

    Also, I love how readable your posts are, which I know you’re intentional about (short titles, sentences, paragraphs, etc.). It’s a good model for me.

    I realized when I was taking your survey that I had never recommended your blog specifically to anyone. For that, I apologize…it is certainly very worthy of recommendation. I guess I just got lazy. I don’t know many people who read blogs or listen to podcasts. The people that I think could benefit from them don’t seem to “find the time.” I guess I just stopped recommending. As for me, I devour podcasts and blogs…thanks for all the content you provide.

  • Matt Manes

    The reason I would love the word of promise bible, is because I just went back to school to get another bachelors to become a high school math teacher and I have an hour and half drive to and from school each day that I would love to listen to it. Thanks @ijusttweeted

    Excellent survey. Thanks for seeking out feed back. @davegullett

  • Trevor Nashleanas

    I follow about 5 blogs regularly. This is hands down the best one. Why? Your blog is: Simple. Short. Slow. Simple in word choice. Short in sentence structure. Slow in transitioning from thought to thought. You get the point across without wasting my time. (I only skim most of the blogs I read for key points, I usually read all of yours for the reason mentioned above). @TNashleanas

    • Michael Hyatt

      Wow. Thanks! That is a GREAT compliment.

  • Sonny Lemmons

    This survey just represents one of the reasons I began reading your blog and keep coming back to it: you don’t write just to only “hear” yourself. You care about your readers, value our opinions, and offer concrete, solid advice. I am so thankful your site was recommended to me. @sonnylemmons

    • Michael Hyatt

      Thanks. That kind of direction is helpful to me.

  • George Hanna

    Hi Michael,

    I really enjoy reading your blog. You’ve inspired me to start writing my own blog. Your blog about putting the big rocks in first was especially relevant to me because it’s so true: what doesn’t get scheduled doesn’t get done! So i’ve decided to schedule my saturday mornings to creating and writing my blog :) can’t wait! Thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience!

    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.

    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.

    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.
