This is going to be another quick one sorry, so if you came here with the hope of reading something meaty and interesting and thought provoking, probably best to move along for now.

For a bit of context, I'm not quite back in the habit of writing just yet and I've been in Sydney for the entire week in order to engage in leadership shenanigans, so in the interests of keeping this short, sweet and relatively low effort, I'm just going to summarise the results of the survey that I sent out back in April.

"But Todd" you say, "Surely you had so many responses that analysing them would take a significant number of words?"


Just the one.

But that's okay, one is better than none, and I'll take what I can get.

Whoever you are, mysterious person who filled out the survey, I salute you and I thank you for the time and effort that you put into your responses.

As a direct response to you, o reader mine:

So, uh, that's pretty much it for analysing the survey results.

I do wonder why I got so few this time though.

The last time I ran a survey I got a solid 11% response rate, which was 6 responses in total. The time before that it was a 25% response rate, with 11 responses.

I don't think it's just a numbers game either. If anything, I have more readers now than I did when I sent those surveys out. Google Analytics is still not my strong suit, but it seems to show a general trend up over the lifetime of this blog (3 years and counting if you're interested).

So, maybe surveys are just not a good way to get people to engage?

Or maybe, people didn't have anything to say about this one in particular?

Or maybe, people are just tired of surveys? I know I get a lot of them at work.

I don't have an easy way to answer either of those questions, but that's okay. I don't need an answer. I might shy away from surveys in the future, or I might not. I haven't decided yet.

But I'm going to keep writing anyway.

At least for a little bit longer.
