Survey Results: Readers Want 2 Posts Per Week

nope-image.jpgOn December 30th, 2008 I posted a survey so my readers could decide if 3 posts per week would be better than 2 posts per week.

Over 320 readers voted and the final tally I took revealed 202 – NO votes compared to 119 – YES votes.  The Blog Dialogue survey result was a WIN-WIN for me because I get do less work and serve more of my readers.

Starts Immediately: So as of Thursday, January 8th, my blogging editorial calendar will 2 posts per week that show up every Thursday and Tuesday (every week in 2009) at precisely 8:44am Eastern.

One of my core premises is: “People support what they help to create.”  And thesimplest way to get support is to “Ask.” That sounds simple, but it’s not easy.

The”Ask Principle” is what the Greek Philosopher, Socrates discovered nearly 2,500 years ago, which is now known as the The Socratic Method.  It is what Gandhi insinuated when he said, “In order to G-E-T you must first A-S-K.”  

And it is what George Gallup did for most of his professional life – assessing public opinion on political, social, and economic issues, including the hopes and fears of people around the globe, their leisure-time activities, their morals, beliefs, etc.

What To Do Now: In 2009, I want you visit and revisit this blog on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  When you do, you’ll see a new blog post that appears at precisely 8:44am Eastern. 

It may seem silly to you, but for me, having that level of consistent precision (Tuesdays, Thursdays at 8:44am Eastern) makes me more predictable to you.  And predictability typically leads to Trust.
