I promised you an exam. Well, I lied. However, I did put together a survey.
If you’ve never tried this sort of thing yourself (writing a blog) I can tell you this: Sitting alone in front of a computer screen with a blank page staring back, getting ready to launch into a monologue for an unknown audience, is a very very strange experience. And from one day to the next it doesn’t get any less so.
They say public-speaking is the #1 fear. Public-writing can’t be far behind.
If I’m going to write at all it might as well be something useful. But I can’t necessarily be useful if I don’t know who I’m talking to. I might be useful only by accident.
I know that most of you live in the U.S., predominantly the Eastern half. Some in Canada. There’s a handful of you in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. Hi, over there! Occasionally some of you drop in from China or the Middle East. Greetings to you also.
What I don’t know is what you’re interested in, why you read JLog at all, if it’s useful to you, what you wish I would talk about instead of what I do.
I’m not sure at all how many of you make a regular sojourn over here. But I think it’s a small enough gathering that we could all pull our chairs in a little closer.
My email is always open to your comments and questions but I rarely hear from you. I continue in my little corner here typing away, assuming there’s a reason you keep coming but I don’t know what it is.
If you have specific questions I would appreciate hearing them. It would give me something to write about. Maybe.
Although having a website has taught me more in the past year than I ever could have imagined, I’m still no more of a techno geek than I was when I started. Just a person who spends an inordinate amount of time in front of a computer screen. Maybe I know more than I think I do. Try me.
This is your chance to tell me where you’re at with your computer. Feel free to write your heart out. I will not post what you say. I’m just interested to know who’s reading JLog and why and what you need.
If you would be so kind, please click here to take the survey. I will review your contributions and get back to you with the results in a general sort of way. This is your chance to influence the future of JLog.
This survey will run until November 25th.
