Good Evening:

My name is Jeremy and I'm an illustrator and a designer that's trying to find my niche and place in the world. The thing I need help is finding it.

Hopefully, you can make me feel welcomed here.

I wanted to share something that has been a big help to me. A couple of weeks ago I created a survey and asked my blog readers, podcast listeners and a few other groups to participate. I wanted to find out more detail about who they are, what topics and products they are most interested in, what their needs and frustrations are, and how they best like to experience content.

I was surprised by some of the results because it contradicted some assumptions I had about my audience. Although it was a fairly short survey, it has been incredibly helpful in giving me information that will help me serve readers/listeners much better.

You can find detailed results of the survey here, and you can find the original survey here. Feel free to use any questions or ideas if you like, because I borrowed some of them from surveys others like Michael Hyatt and Ray Edwards have done. :)

If you're wondering who is in your audience and what they want/need, a survey is an easy way to help find out. I've only done this once, but it gave me a huge amount of information about my audience. If you have any questions about how this worked, let me know and I'll be happy to help. 

(I am posting this on a couple of groups here on 48 Days that I thought might find this helpful, so please accept my apology if you get this twice!)

Melissa, thanks so much! I will get in touch with you about posting on your site - sounds like a blast! 

Dave, I am also interested in having others post on my blog. Would definitely love to have your help with that.

Thanks Melissa, By the way I am also interested in guest posting if anyone would like to have me post. Also I am totally open to having people repost my posts. ANything to help me get the Word out...

Kent, I'm glad you said something.  I would love to have you guest post- my blog is primarily for women creatives but I think you would have some great things to say about personal development and the artist that would be great.

 I'm also going to put the feelers out for anyone else here: I'm actively looking to have guest posts by artists and creatives (in every season) on http://www.launchyourcreativelife.com  Please let me know if you are interested.

I am going to make a serious effort this Spring at guest posting on others' blogs. Are there any particular blogs or sites you enjoy that focus on art, creativity, music, worship, leadership, and topics related to those? I can't think of a more knowledge group than Artists Arise who could identify the leaders and influencers in art and creativity. :)

Or, if any of you here have blogs and are interested in guest posts, I would love to hear about it. I made a huge mistake last year by not guest posting very much and want to make a big effort to connect with others doing similar work. Being able to connect with other awesome people on 48 Days has been so helpful.

David, I like your post- thanks  for letting us know about it. 

Deby- the course looks amazing :)  I'm sharing it as well!  Do you have another Artist Arise event planned for this year?

Thank you for your kind words; hope your celebration in the Smokey mountains continues to be wonderful :)

By the way, does anyone sell on Society 6?  It looks like an upscale Zazzle- except with a focus on artists.  I've started to notice it more and wondered if anyone had an opinion :)
