We hear you
By Morgan on October 18th, 2011
More than a hundred of you took our recent reader survey, and we can’t thank you enough. It’s truly helpful to hear directly from you, our readers, what you like and don’t like about OOM, and we take all of your answers and suggestions into consideration.
We thought we’d fill you in on some of the interesting findings from the survey, since it directly affects what we write. For starters…
It’s neat to see the breakdown of who you all are:
- 17% of you identified as Educators
- 21% as Librarians
- 16% as Parents
- 18% as Book Bloggers
- 9% as Students
- 10% as Readers (We recognize that many of you cross over into multiple categories, but it was helpful to see what you most identified with!)
In terms of what you read on OOM, 90% of you said you consistently read any book-related posts, while 60% of you read guest posts — which is great, since we tend to have a lot of them! News about Scholastic events and initiatives garnered lots of interest, as did posts about education reform and innovation, library news, and behind-the-scenes looks at the publishing industry.
It was really great seeing what you want to read more of on OOM — things like more book trailers, more guest posts from authors, more just-for-fun book posts, more library, technology, and education news, and more polls. And we loved reading your comments, like:
- Scholastic makes choosing the right books so much easier!
- Love the variety of contributors!
- It’s great to hear inside-the-industry snippets.
A huge thank you to everyone who participated! If you have more suggestions or feedback to share, leave us a comment.
