Take the Book Blogging Survey!

Take the Book Blogging Survey! post image

One of the best things about popping on to Twitter during the day is that some really interesting, inspiring conversations can develop. A few weeks ago, several bloggers got to talk about why we blog and what some of the pressures that start to develop when you’ve been blogging for a long time. Someone suggested that it would be great to survey people to find out and, with that, a new project was born.

Since then, Shannon (River City Reading), Jennifer (Literate Housewife), and I have been working to put this little survey that focuses on longevity and blogger burnout. Major props should go to Shannon, who kept this project rolling along when Jennifer and I started to feel overwhelmed and who made the really cute graphic at the top of this post. It was fun to work with these ladies, since we all come to blogging from slightly different places. I can’t wait to keep analyzing the results with them.

We’re looking for as many current and former bloggers as we can to take our book blogging survey. We’re hoping that the results will help give a snapshot into some of the issues that affect bloggers and some of the ways that bloggers, especially after blogging for several years, start to deal with the internal and external pressures that can develop. If you’re interested in taking the survey, just click the link above — most of the survey is multiple choice, so I don’t think it will take very long to fill out. Thanks in advance for your interest!

    It’s so nice when one of us organizes something like this. Thanks for doing it!

    I filled it out. Will be interested to see what input other bloggers give. I’ve noticed a lot of people getting burned out or abandoning blogging altogether lately.

    • Kim October 6, 2013, 9:09 pm

      That was part of the impetous for the survey, trying to see if we could find some commonalities about burn out and how we deal with it. I hope we’re able to get at something useful!

    I feel like I was way terse in the non-multiple-choice questions. Really liked the survey though!
