A short 5 minute survey is up at surveymonkey to help provide some insight into reader's needs.
I've wondered, ever since the first visitors trickled into allfolktales.com, "who visits my site?". Are they kids reading folktales for fun? Or are they reading for an assignment? Are they teachers? Are they parents? What are they really looking for when they stumble on this site?
I've received hints through readers who send me notes to ask questions or just to encourage my efforts. But I've never sought to get complete answers. Now, some 2 years and 10 months later, it finally occurs to me to ask. Just ask. So I headed over to surveymonkey.com and created a survey. And I'm asking you, allfolktales readers, to please participate in the survey.
What to do with survey results
You may be wondering, "what do you intend to do with the information"?
I mentioned in my last blog post that I have dreams for allfolktales.com. I'm ready to take this site to the next level. I'm overwhelmed by the magnitude of what I'm dreaming of, but intend to take it one step at a time, closer to that dream. While figuring out how to take the next big step, I intend to work on all those little details that I have ignored - a tweak here and a tweak there.
While tweaking here and there, I want to be sure that I keep you in mind. What do you need from this site? What do you use today? How can this site serve you better? How can I know if I do not ask? So I'm asking you to please take the survey and let me know allfolktales can serve you better?
Thank you for taking the time to help. And thank you for visiting allfolktales.com
