Help Us Build a Better, Sustainable Blog: Take the Streetsblog Reader Survey


Who are you, why do you read Streetsblog San Francisco and what do you care about? Those three key questions are at the heart of a short and easy questionnaire we’ve put together for our readers. It only takes a few minutes and will do a world of good for Streetsblog San Francisco.

Collecting this information will help guide our coverage and get the most value out of potential advertising space on Streetsblog. It’s also been way too long since we asked our readers for feedback, and we want to hear from you about how we’re doing.

In the coming year you’ll begin to see advertising on Streetsblog (ads are already appearing on our L.A. site). It’s all part of our long-term financial plan. In order to keep Streetsblog strong, we will need a mix of ads, sponsorships, major donations, and reader contributions. We really need your help.

So please, help us pay our bills and fill out the survey. Rest assured that your response will be kept private and the information we receive will only be used in aggregate.

For some extra motivation, we’re also giving out a $100 Amazon gift certificate to one lucky reader. If you check off that you read Streetsblog San Francisco we’ll throw in a Streetsblog hoodie for another lucky reader. Make sure you fill out the email box to win one or both prizes.
