Final Notes on a Reader Survey

Our reader survey is closed! The numbers weren’t big enough to draw any serious conclusions, but the following are a few of the notes I’ve made for myself:

– With some exceptions in the Millenial/Boomer ends of the spectrum, our audience – and I say this with deep and abiding (if bemused) affection – is probably best described as “Gen-Xers who seem to enjoy cultural whiplash.”

– Nobody except me uses tags to navigate the site.

– Most popular: reviews (music and books about music-related topics) and “A good read, a good drink . . .” series. Least popular: Video challenges and year-end photo round-ups.

– Most readers connect either via Twitter (reading as stories are posted) OR have us bookmarked and check in periodically.

Thank you to everyone who contributed!
