Notes from An Alien

~ Explorations In Reading, Writing & Publishing ~

Survey Results ~ New Directions


Our last post was a survey; and, while I encourage you, if you haven’t voiced your desires, to scroll down and add your opinions, it’s been up long enough to not see any new votes for the last 24 hours.

I currently have an average of 58 people coming to this blog each day, which isn’t so bad considering I started it on January first.

There are about 7 people who regularly comment and the survey had 39 votes. Since each person could check 3 options, there may have been 13 people contributing to the results (so far).

The topic with the most votes (20.5%) was Writing, closely followed by (c. 18%) Writers’ Issues.

One surprise for me was the number three slot (15.4%), How Notes from An Alien Can Help Earth. If you’re new to the blog, Notes from An Alien is my book, being published May 16th and available free from the link in the right side-bar :-)

The remaining votes fell out like this:

Self-Publishing c. 10.3%

Reading & Genre Explorations both c. 7.7%

Language, Author Interviews, and Social Issues all at just over 5%

And, Global Issues and Publishing both at c. 2.6%

I gratefully thank everyone who voted and, again, encourage those who haven’t to scroll down and take part.

I’ll be pondering these results and working toward satisfying my readers’ desires; at least those readers’ desires which got expressed.

It’s interesting to me that there were no topics with more than around 20% of the vote. The spread of interests intrigues me.

What are your thoughts?

    No matter what you write a post about I know it will be interesting and worth reading. I think that though reader input is very important you need to follow your muse ;)

    Since I’ve been coming to your blog from the beginning (I think), I thought it would be pretty cool if you talked more about NFAA. Of course I enjoy all of your thought provoking posts so whatever your direction turns out to be is fine with me! :-)

      NfAA is transitioning from just a book that will soon be published to a topic of conversation, on this blog and in the virtual world, Second Life.

      I’ve been reading a chapter a week for the last 19 weeks, every Thursday, on Book Island. On Thursday the 28th, I’ll be changing the format of the event to discussions of issues that NfAA raises.

      I’ll also be doing more discussion of issues from the book in this blog, but Writing and Writers’ Issues will come first :-)
