Mondoweiss’s current reader survey will be open for your feedback for two more weeks. We’ve received hundreds of completed surveys, and are eager to learn more.
Here are a few examples of the input submitted so far:
“I think there is renewed interest in I/P in this country and people are experimenting re how to express that….Mondoweiss could do more to cross fertilize these efforts and give them at least a little more coverage.”
“Would like to see more history and republication of journalists and historians’ writing that have been forgotten or blacklisted.”
“Keep at it because an informed citizenry is the bedrock of democracy and US main media has devolved into the Establishment’s stenographer most especially on issues Mondoweiss addresses, as well as re economic & monetary policy.”
What to expect as you prepare to click on the the survey link: A few people were surprised at the survey’s length. Our estimate of 15-30 minutes has been accurate for most respondents (some got it done in even less time), but if you have a lot to say you may want to set aside more time. We understand that those of you who share your views are doing us a significant favor, and we do not take for granted your time and energy!
We also want to make sure you know that we are asking about several topics: not only the site’s content, but the ease and value of sharing it, and the channels we use to finance the work. Your opinions on all of these matters will guide our choices as we seek to increase Mondoweiss’s impact in truth-telling.
If you’ve already taken the survey — or this month is just too busy for you — please feel free to share the link with others you know who use Mondoweiss to any extent at all. We will benefit from the suggestions not only of our regular readers but also of people for whom Mondoweiss is just one of many information sources.
Finally, a reminder: respondents who provide contact information on the survey’s last page will be entered into a special drawing. Every Friday the survey is open we’ll draw three names who’ll receive a free copy of Mondoweiss’s new publication, “The World The Settlers Made.” We’ve sent out books from our first two drawings already; it could be you next week! (And make sure you check your junk email inbox because if we don’t hear back from a winner, we’ll move on to select someone else.)
The survey will be running until Friday, May 6. Please help Mondoweiss by filling it out today!
