Nate, thanks so much, I really appreciate it! Where I'm going: I'm looking for indicators that will give me direction on several things: blog and podcast content, what social networks to focus on, what type of leaders are in my audience (i.e. Do they prefer audio, video, written content?), who my audience is demographically, and what their perceived needs are. The responses I've gotten already today have blown my mind and made me realize I have false assumptions about my audience. I wish I would have done surveys like this before now.

Right: a couple of the questions are a little fuzzy, but I'm shooting in the dark a little bit since this is my first time doing it. But even the responses to those questions has been very intriguing. I'll write up all of the results after a week or two, and I've been able to analyze the data.

Consider it done, Mr. Sanders. :) 

I liked your questions and I am curious where you are going with it.. However, I did feel a little lost on questions 8 and 9. Felt like you were leading the witness a little, and I wasn't quite sure how to answer. 

Thanks again for the opportunity to take the survey, and good luck on this venture!

Hey fellow artists! I could really use your input. I have developed a very short survey to help me serve artists and creatives better. Would you be willing to take 60 seconds and give me your opinion on a couple of things? I would be VERY grateful! You can access the survey below. Thank you SO MUCH!

Wow, Chris! I'm impressed! Your diner is fabulous. Good job on the waves too. You have made so much progress . . . it's time for a breakthrough! Have you thought of finding a place to display these? Is there an old fashioned drug store/ soda fountain type place in your town? If so . . . your car paintings need to be there.

Hey everyone!  Thanks for the kind words about my paintings. Below is the finished painting of "Rosie's Diner".  Also is a quick little painting I did of a light house. It's my first attempt at painting waves.  I had a lot of fun painting both of these.  Happy New Year everybody!

Brad, great seeing you around here. Love, love DinoSanta!  Also Chris, your diner is coming along nicely. I look forward to seeing the finished product.

Hope you all had a blessed Christmas and are moving towards your BEST year ever! I'll be launching some offers for the new year that will help you take some giant steps forward for building a platform for your art. Page will be up soon.

Enjoy these holidays, live in the moment and embrace the hope this season brings.

All the best to you and yours!

Brad, great picture- the Santa hat is a festive touch. The dragon looks as if he/she is anticipating a wonderful festive feast!
