Boring Money is a year old
Or how taking a reader survey might actually be fun
As you’ve probably figured from the title of this post, it has been a year since I started writing Boring Money. This is what the last year has borne:
I think the combination of turning one and reaching the 2000-subscribers milestone is a good time for a reader survey.does a fascinating reader survey every year and while my survey is nowhere near as deep or detailed as his, I’ve picked up a few questions directly from his survey.
Here’s the link to Boring Money’s first reader survey. It should take about 5 minutes and (nearly) all the questions are optional, so if you’re midway and bored, you can skip right to the end. It’s also entirely anonymous.
Please do take the survey. I’ll share the results at a later stage.1
I post most of my writings on Reddit. Here are some of the comments on my most recent post:
People sharing their perspective. Some their appreciation. Others, their banter. Oftentimes someone highlights something truly valuable that I may not have known (the third comment in the screenshot, for instance).
Here’s the same post’s comment section on Boring Money:
I do understand why readers comment on Reddit and not here. Reddit is entirely about its comments, while Boring Money is about its posts and the comment section a tertiary feature at best.
But it would be nice to have a few comments here every now and then. Comments asking questions. Or pointing a blooper. Or sharing an insight that might spark a discussion, maybe even a follow up post. If you have anything on your mind, just put it down there.
Thank you everyone for reading and subscribing.
This will only happen if there are enough takers of the survey. Definitely not going to share the meaningless results of 10 people taking the survey, ha.
