Results of My Reader Survey

This is going to be an uncharacteristically quick post, but I wanted to let you know the results of the reader survey I did a few weeks ago. Some things came out exactly as I expected, and some were very different, so I thought you might also be interested in your fellow readers and their viewpoints.

  • 93% female
  • 7% male – Hello gentlemen friends! I didn't know you were out there, but I hope you feel welcome!

Age

I've always imagined myself writing for an audience that is younger than myself, so it was eye-opening to know that 76% of you are actually older than me!

  • 2% Muslim
  • 2% Buddhist
