Question 1: How did you find my blog?
Ten of you found my blog from browsing the blogosphere, six because I commented on or followed your blog, two each from the most awesome chess server (FICS), blogger link-ups, and meeting in person, and one from Facebook/Google+. The other results were one person who found my blog through a language learning site and another who found my blog because I commented on her daughter's blog. My favorite result was the person who does not remember how (s)he found my blog. Hopefully within the next few years that percentage grows higher.
Question 2: Which are your favorite posts?
Life remains the favorite category, with Travel and Nature/Photos close behind. Political posts have increased in popularity, shockingly passing even the love of posts about good food!
Question 3: Do you read or skim?
Less people read and less people skim than last year...more do both, which is understandable. I post a wide variety of topics, and it would be logical for readers to read the posts they find interesting, and skim the ones they don't.
Question 4: And for statistical purposes, to which age group do you belong?
Last year the 50-65 category won by a landslide. This year, I categorized solely by decade. Twenty-somethings and fifty-somethings tied for first place. No one under thirteen or over seventy responded.
Ladies and gentlemen, it is my pleasure to present to you our new favorite candy bar: Kit-Kat! Kit-Kat's secret to success? The millennial vote! Four 20-30 year-olds selected Kit-Kat, along with one 13-19 year-old and one young-at-heart 50-60 year-old. Last year's favorite, Snickers, finished second with four votes. Snickers appears to be a timeless treat, with its four votes spread over four decades. Everyone who voted for Butterfinger was under 30. 50-60 year-olds seem to have very diverse tastes: no two people in that age group voted for the same treat.
Now...it's time to celebrate!
Yes, I plan to continue advocating Almond Joy till you convert!
And...it is cold outside...next year I'll try to get the survey (or at least my celebratory picture) done earlier!
Thanks again for participating in the survey, and have a very sweet day!
