Blog Survey Questions Examples

Below you will find Blog Survey Questions Examples. I used these questions for my Blog Survey in December 2011 and received almost 600 responses.

I had specific goals in mind for my survey, I wanted to:

  • find out about readers use of multimedia (eg podcasts, video)
  • receive feedback on site navigation
  • better understand how readers saw the Planning With Kids brand

The results provided excellent insights into who my readers were, what they think of the blog and what they would like to see on the blog.

The open ended questions, while taking longer to analyse provided a wealth of info that I have since used to improve the navigation of the blog and to tailor content to the needs of readers.

Make sure you use these survey questions as guide only, tweaking, changing, deleting etc to make sure you will receive information that will help you extract the information you are after.

I used Survey Monkey to run the survey. I used the pay per month option as the free version only allows 10 questions and 100 responses. You can see the Survey Monkey princing plans here.

There are other online survey tools out there so you might like to check out other options like:

  • – actually only free for a survey of up to 20 questions and receive up to 50 responses over a 10 day period, beginning when you start creating your survey.
  • – Their website states there are no hidden charges, it’s completely free with unlimited number of questions, answers and surveys.

Boosting Your Blog

Blog Boost E-Book

Loving your blogging, but not how much time it is taking up?

I have been there too and I think there is a point where most bloggers reach this place as well. But you don’t have to stay there.

It is possible to grow a successful blog without:

  • posting every day
  • being on every social network
  • guest posting every week
  • commenting on every blog in your niche

My Planning With Kids blog has grown to be one of the leading parenting blogs in Australia and continues to grow and develop:

And I have done this as a part time blogger who has five gorgeous kids, someone who is an active member of my school and kinder communities, an every day gym goer and supporter to my husband’s endeavours like he supports mine. The only way I managed to achieve this level of blogging success while still having a life, was to get smarter about the way I blogged!

I needed to be strategic about how I could manage my limited time for blogging. I needed to plan and work out where I could best spend my blogging time for maximum results.

You find more about how I go about my blogging in my Blog Coaching Boost E-book – Blogging Smarter.
