Kent and Nathan, stay indoors and keep warm! I can't even imagine a snow emergency. Yikes! 

Tony, great use of your time! Has anyone else been creating during this polar blast?

Hopefully the warm air is heading your way. My hubby and I take off tomorrow for our anniversary trip. We're headed to the mountains. I hope it warms up a bit!

Stay safe everyone!

"YETI" All this cold weather made me create this...

When I went to the kitchen this morning it was -14 in Northeast Indiana. It's not too uncommon to have sub-zero windchills, but actual temps of -14 has been breaking some records! 

We're also under a level 1 Snow emergency (which means we could get fines for driving on the roads), and the wind chills have been -30 to -50!! 

Needless to say, we're hiding in the house. :)

It is literally 0 right now in St. Louis. Last night we took a pot of boiling water and threw it off the porch and watched it turn to snow. (Cheap fun the Missouri way!)

Wishing you all the best for 2014! Is everyone staying warm? It hit 1 degrees here in Nashville - the coldest ever since I've been here. How cold is it where you are?

Nate, thanks for the kind words! I really do appreciate it. 

I don't consider anything with the blog, podcast, or whatever else to be proprietary. I consider it all a learning experience that will help me and anyone who wants to learn from it. The survey results have been very interesting so far. After a week or two I will do some analysis on a blog post and link to it here. 

If anyone still wants to take the survey (it only takes about 60 seconds), here's a link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/M8M7RH2

One thing that has been most intriguing is that I had some assumptions about my audience that aren't true - - yikes! So I'm glad to be discovering all this and helping me refine what their needs and interests are.

Kent, I'm consistently impressed with your ideas! I love the direction you are heading and I cannot wait to see where this adventure takes you. 

As an aside, I would love to learn what you find from your survey.. but if it's proprietary information, that's fine too. One must hold some cards close to their chest, right? 

Comment by Kent Sanders on December 30, 2013 at 3:29pm

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!
