The Poires au Chocolat 2013 Survey

I'm going through a phase where I'm questioning everything I do. In tandem, I want - and sometimes feel that I need - answers. Most of the time I can't get those answers - they're hidden in the future or are choices I need to make - but I realised recently that I do have a way to find out what you think of a few blog-related questions: a survey.

There are only ten questions, eight of which are multiple choice, so it shouldn't take too much time. None of the questions are compulsory and the survey is anonymous.

To take the survey, please click here.

The survey has now closed. Thank you so much for your responses!

I hope you enjoy doing the survey - I'm certainly looking forward to seeing the results and playing with the statistics (on that note, have you seen these awesome graphs you can create from the incidence of words and phrases in the digitized archive of Google Books? I obviously entered 'butter', 'biscuit' and 'cake' - I find the peaks in 'butter' and 'cake' around the two world wars fascinating).

I couldn't think of any sensible photos to use for this post so I've gone for a series entitled 'holding my camera where I can't see into it: inadvertent self portraits'. And yes, I was wearing my pyjamas when I made the éclairs.

The three posts that match this photo series:

  1. Think it was a really smart idea to do a survey. And, seriously, I'd love your blog to become a book... ;)

  2. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough
    for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    to healthy. If all rock, look for your patch of sand. http://www.

  6. When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added"
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get
    several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you
    can remove people from that service? Bless you!
