Please Give Me Your Feedback on The Prairie Ecologist Blog

Hi everyone,

In both 2014 and 2017, I asked readers to fill out a quick survey about this blog and both times, the feedback was incredibly helpful. Last time, we had over 900 respondents, which was really tremendous.

I’d be very grateful if you could take a few minutes to fill out this survey, regardless of whether or not you took either of the previous versions. It should take you less than 10 minutes, and maybe much less than that. There are 23 questions, maximum, but depending upon your answers, you might not even get that many. Most will require only a click to indicate your choice. Easy peasy.

I’m often shocked at how many people seem to enjoy reading about what I see out in the prairie – including this swarm of flying ants that wanted to woo each other around my head. Hopefully, this survey will help me better understand what you find interesting.

I try to post twice a week here, which takes a fair amount of time. I love doing the work, but if I’m going to spend that much time on something, I also want it to be the best and most useful product I can create. Please help by taking a few minutes to fill out this survey.

I really do appreciate it.

  2. Just so you know a lot of the questions that required a written answer did not allow me to write anything, the survey immediately skipped to the nex T question when I tapped on the box to answer those questions

    • Thanks for letting me know. I went in to look at the results that have come in so far. It looks like at least the vast majority of people are able to write answers in, so I’m not sure what’s happening for you. What kind of device are you using? (Computer, tablet or phone?) I’ll see if I can find anything that might help.

  3. I absolutely love your posts
    I don’t always comment on them
    I find them very informative and educational
    Besides the photography is outstanding
    Thank you Chris !
    Keep on posting !

  4. I wonder if you know about places where a person could vacation and then say – help clean up a beach, count birds, look for a prairie grasshopper of some sort….I’ve always wanted to combine a vacation with a little giving back of some sort.
