Take the Blag Hag 2010 Census!

I like data. No, really. Whenever there's something I can measure or perform statistics on, I do. I like to graph my weight over time, find correlations between silly variables like doucheyness vs. time spent dating a guy, and create networks that diagram which of my friends have kissed each other (it's a frightening web).

Don't worry, you don't have to make out with anyone against your will. But I would like you to complete a short survey!

I'm mainly curious about some of the general demographics of my readers, what you guys like about the blog, and what I can do to improve it in the future. I figure now is a great time to start collecting this sort of data. My blog is creeping up on it's first birthday, and I think it would be pretty neat to have a regular data set throughout my years of blogging. Wouldn't it be cool to see how it changes over time? I didn't ask as many questions as I could have because 1) I'm limited to 10 and 2) I didn't want to annoy you guys. But I still like getting a general idea!

Feel free to post comments and complaints in this post as well, though I have allotted you a free response question on the survey if you'd like to make a completely anonymous comment. I promise this isn't a nefarious scheme to sell your demographic information to some mega corporation - at most the data may be posted anonymously as a couple graphs in a later post.

So, please take the survey!

  2. Whereas, mine’s so generic you probably can’t tell it apart from others. =P

  3. why are all the labels (atheist, agnostic, etc) capitalized?

  4. Frank: Just for grammatical reasons. Notice all the options for all the questions are capitalized. Don't freak out ;)

    Joe: I can tell which one is yours because you put "=P" in the free response, no? Hehe.

  7. Awesome survey! I loved the inclusion of Transgender and Asexual in some of the demographic questions!

  8. Yes more sexy pirates!

    You should have included the book review in 'how we heard of you', I think I heard of that through pharyngula, so I put pharyngula.

  9. Done and done. You'll know which one is mine because I'm pretty sure I'm the only Discordian that reads your blog. (You are all popes though, so there!)

  10. So, anyone not say yes to the sexy pirate outfit option? Anyone? Anyone? OK, cool.
    Any chance you could find somewhere that charges a little less for the t shirts, as awesome as that design is.

  11. Marcus: Unfortunately nearly all print to order shirt sites cost the same :(

    And as for the sexy pirate outfit option, I'm pretty sure that's winning, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, haha

  12. I love surveys! I should have put that I want more of them. Damn!

  13. Well Jen, you never said who would be in a sexy pirate outfit, so it works for everyone.

  14. Sweet. I need to do this for my blog. I bet my mom would respond.

  15. Nah, you're awesomeful enough already.

    On the other hand if the sexy pirate outfit option refers to the (not so) sooperseekrit boyfriend, we might be open for negotiation.
