#106 – Survey Results

A HUGE THANK YOU to those of you who completed my mini survey last month! About half of my readers responded, which was wonderful. That level of response makes the data more reliable, and certainly gives me a strong sense of your opinions. Here’s a summary of the results of the first three questions. The other questions will require further study and analysis.

1. Frequency? Weekly 62% Every other week 30% Monthly 8%
2. Length? Just right as is 92% Shorter 3% Longer 5%
3. Format? Written 86% Written with occasional video 14%

Food for Thought ~

My “takeaway” message from the survey results could be summarized in the words of one of my readers, who wrote, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

So, for the time being, we’ll keep on keeping on with Tuesday Minutes with Mary in its current format every week. However, you can be sure I will continue tweaking, refining, experimenting, and improving as we go. Just to let you know in advance, I may try every other week at some point. (I have already added one new feature suggested by a reader – did you notice? The edition number is now included with the date, as several people told me they archive my Minutes and numbering them would help.) If you’re like me, you are usually thinking about how you can improve what and/or how you are doing things. But sometimes it’s good to notice and acknowledge that we’re doing just fine – no major changes needed.

Question of the day ~

What are you doing well, just as you are? What can you give yourself a pat on the back for doing just fine?

Thanks again to those of you who contributed to my mini-survey! A few of you wrote personal messages in the comments section, but please be advised the survey instrument was anonymous, so I don’t know who you are! If you want a personal response, please contact me.
