Help Us Build a Better Blog: Take the Streetsblog Reader Survey

I promise this will be quick, and probably even fun.

reader_surveyWe’ve put together a short questionnaire for our readers. Take the survey and tell us a little bit about yourself, why you read Streetsblog, and any feedback you have about the site. It takes a couple of minutes and will do a world of good for Streetsblog.

There are two reasons we’re posting the survey. One is that it’s been way too long since we asked our readers for feedback, and we want to hear from you about how we’re doing. The other is that we want to know more about who reads Streetsblog.

Collecting this information will help guide our coverage and get the most value out of potential advertising space on Streetsblog. Yes, ads are coming (for Los Angeles readers, the ads have already arrived). It’s all part of our long-term financial plan: We’ve run the numbers, and in order to keep Streetsblog strong, we will need a mix of ads, sponsorships, major donations, and reader contributions.

So I entreat you to help us pay our bills and fill out the survey. Rest assured that your response will be kept private and the information we receive will only be used in aggregate.

For some extra motivation, we’re also giving out a $100 Amazon gift certificate to one lucky reader. Check off some boxes and it could be yours.
