Survey for Indian Blog Readers

Hey, I have created this small survey for Blog Readers from India (people who have recently left India or are expecting to come back soon also qualify). Please note that it is for the blog readers and hence it does not matter whether or not you write a blog. So, long you read at least one of them you can participate.

It’s a small one and is not likely to take much of your time. It would be really helpful if you could take out some time to fill this up. It’s online – so no hassles. Just like hundreds of forms you submit everyday. Name and E-Mail id are optional. So, no problems with anonymity. And as usual – the individual responses will be kept strictly confidential; only the aggregate data will be reported πŸ™‚

The link is:

If many people are accessing it from behind the same proxy, it may give a warning ” A Response from You has already been recorded.” Please ignore that and click the button “Take the survey again” to start the survey.

Thanks a lot in anticipation.

  3. Interesting idea. BTW when/where will you be publishing the results?

    Also, it is somewhat hilarious to see ‘Illiterate’ in the education column. Blog ‘reader’ as an illiterate person is funny.

  4. Hey, Thanks a lot to all of you for such an enthusiastic response. Really, it’s more than what I expected. The survey will remain open for a while. Results will be compiled after that. Those who have taken the survey and have provided the e-mail ids will be sent the results through mail. For the rest, it will be be made public. But after a while… Please bear with that.

    Nanda: Patience! Just rest assured for no malicious purpose πŸ˜‰

    Vinay: Yeah, I wanted to do that. But it seems the site has some technical issues. When I used radio button, it was allowing only one option in all the questions (meaning – if you clicked any option is Q No. 1, you could not click an option in any of the other questions) 😦 . So, have to live with this. Am depending on the caution and good intentions of my respondents πŸ™‚

    Kanishk: Thanks a lot for visiting and appreciating the site.

    AA: Answered your first question. And that education classification. Well you are right :D. Actually, I have just picked up the standard National Readership Survey classification, which starts with illeterate!!

    Null Bit: “The results will be used for academic purposes only. Your individual information will be kept strictly confidential and data will be reported in aggregate only”. Does that alleviate the fear πŸ˜‰

    Vasanth: Thanks a lot for taking the survey. I can explain that professional bit only through example. Graduation/Post graduation in disciplines like engineering, medicine, management etc. will be professional. The normal B. Sc./ B. A. / B. Com etc will be otherwise.

  5. good idea to have a survey of indian blog readers. hope you will use the data thus collected in interesting ways. i would like to see some good facts coming out of this survey. i am not sure how much you are publicising this survey – the more the participants, the more interesting the results would be. i will try to communicate this to my blog friends.

    why two check boxes for ‘Other specific topics’ and ‘If you clicked “Other specific topics”‘? the checkboxes instead of radio buttons was also amusing. they need to come up with better surveying software!

  6. Tabrez: Thanks a lot for taking the survey and efforts at publicizing it. The results will be made available.

    This survey, as you can see, is a very small one, limited in purpose. I was not quite sure of the kind of response I will get. But it is overwhelming, thanks to the vibrant blogging community. In future, I am encouraged to research the various aspects of blogging even further. Hope the support and similar initiatives will continue.

  7. Jaya,

    Got to your page when I was searching for Blog containing “Nahnkari” (Those from IITK would understand this). Happen to get into one of your older postings which lead to this page.
    Your name surely rings a bell, but cannot recall. I am 2001 IITK EE.

    Nice postings and yeah, i also share the same passion as you for IIT-K. I also visited campus sometime back and was shocked when I had to use my sales skills to get inside the Biotech Building. I didn’t have the I-card or something and hence that guy didn’t allow me. Felt like either the place was alien or I was…but things have to change with time and so does systems, customs and processes….

    Campus looks much cleaner, systematic and arrnaged…but hey who said that we like all that….does someone know harmony in chaos.
