Survey Time… Please Help!
For the last three or four years, I have asked for reader input into what you like or dislike about SethSpeaks.net. It is always about this time of the year, and I am going to do the same thing this year. In the past, it was generally six or seven questions about this blog. But in the past year, I have moved into other realms as well. So I need your input on each of them that you would care to respond to. There is SethSpeaks.net, and the talkintwinsbb.wordpress.com site that allows for RSS feeds. There are the Live Chats, the SethSpeaks.net Weekly Minnesota Twins podcasts, and finally, there is the Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook – 2009. I would appreciate any and all that you would care to comment on. I, of course, love to hear the positive things that you have to say, but I also want to hear the negative, or at least any recommendations that you might have or things that you would like to see/read. So, this may even take you ten minutes to do, rather than four minutes, but I would really appreciate your comments. Since there are more questions, you may want to copy the questions into an e-mail and later e-mail your responses to me.
THE SURVEY – First of all, I do like to know who is reading this site, a little information. It always is interesting to see that people from all over the world, much less all over Minnesota, continue to come to this site. It is helpful to know if fans are from the Twin Cities or if they are relocated Minnesotans.
1.) Your Age (or age range, if you prefer), Gender, and Location:
2.) How long have you been reading SethSpeaks.net?
3.) What keeps you coming back? (What do you like?)
4.) What more would you like to see here? (What would you like to see different?)
5.) What other blogs to you read?
6.) Have you used the RSS Feed available at talkintwinsbb.wordpress.com?
7.) Have you ever commented at talkintwinsbb.wordpress.com, or at least read any of the comments there?

10.) Have you read a transcript of a Live Chat?
11.) Any thoughts on the Live Chat? Should I continue to do them? When would be a good time?
12.) Have you listened to any of the podcasts live? (if so, have you participated in the chat room?)
13.) Any format on the format, the interviews, the tone of the show… any comments?
14.) Can you suggest a time and day during each week that would work best for the live show?
MINNESOTA TWINS PROSPECT HANDBOOK – 2009 – released officially on Thanksgiving at LuLu.com, the book has done much better than I would have anticipated. But now that there are a lot of books out there, and hopefully being read and discussed, here are some questions that I have for you:
15.) Any thoughts on the concept of the book? Does it serve a purpose? Can it be useful?
16.) Should it be available in hard copy and also as an e-book?
17.) What are your thoughts on the format of the book (alphabetical order, prospect lists, foreword, etc.)
18.) In general, what do you like about the book?
19.) What don’t you like?
20.) What would you like to see improved if there is to be a Prospect Handbook – 2010?
21.) Would you recommend the book to other Twins fans? (if so, please consider also writing a review of the book here too)
22.) Feel free to leave any comments in this space that you like about any of the topics above, or anything in general.
I really appreciate you taking the time to respond to these questions. Obviously reader input is very important in trying to be successful, and also knowing what people like. So again, please feel free to copy this group of questions into an e-mail and send me your responses this week. Thank you so much for your continued support of me and this site.
