Thank you to the 46% of bloggers who filled out the survey.
Almost everyone enjoyed the challenge this year.
“Visiting the blog in March, April, and May” is the most popular way to follow us. Our Facebook page is the second most popular.
Most said they’ll be back next April, or probably will. No one answered that they definitely won’t.
Nearly everyone who took the survey said they completed the challenge.
90% got on the Master list this year. Only 2 bloggers said they didn’t share links anywhere, including to their own followers.
Half posted links to their blog onTHEIR OWN Facebook page or profile, and half posted links to their blog on Twitter using the #AtoZchallenge hashtag.
Over 90% did not use a linky ran by another site to join this challenge.
Only 30% of you don’t want Instagram added as an optional follow social media option on the Master List sign-up, so that will likely be included next year. (Instagram itself will not be allowed as a blog.)
However, over half were strongly opposed to the email option.
Categories (that we don’t already offer) requested include:
Author/ Writing mixed-bag (also requests for storytelling, flash fiction, and poetry to have their own sub-categories), Brand Management and Marketing, Finance and Frugality, Heritage and Culture, the Quilters requested their own sub-category under crafts, Inspirational, Music as a sub-category in Entertainment, Names, Current Affairs as a sub-category of Politics and News, and Random Blogging.
Most people responded that we have plenty of categories and they’re happy.
Were you given enough time to sign up for the challenge? Almost 90% said yes!
30% use the HTML codes and find that helpful. (7% don’t know what that means.)
Thanks to the 70% who read the daily posts written by the team!
Only 7 people said they weren’t visited by a co-host. 39 said they didn’t visit one of us.
Most people reported commenting on 1 to 50 blogs.
“How many comments did your blog get in April?” The most popular answers fell between 11 to 150.
Nearly everyone prefers replies posted in the comment section, email being liked only if it’s a private matter. Also popular was just visiting the blog of the commenter and saying hello on one of their posts. (Also known as comment-reciprocation.)
Most joined the road-trip. Over half checked out the shirts, and at least 10 said they bought one this year.
