• Twins Daily Reader Survey

    Last week, I had an interesting conversation with a potential sponsor. It went something like this:

    Sponsor: We need to know something about your readers.
    Me: Sure, what do you want to know?
    Sponsor: Well, who comes to your site?
    Me: Well, there's Jim, who watches baseball in Iowa and Shane who talks about prospects and we have a guy from New Britain and....
    Sponsor (rubbing temples): Let me explain to you the concept of demographics....

    So could you all PLEASE take this survey? It would help up out a lot. And I promise, it won't take more than 30 seconds.

      No questions on my sexual orientation or my political identification? Pfft.

      Took and please say no to "do you drink". The last thing I'd like to see is alcohol ads on here.

      Good stuff
      (one little note, 'cause some people are kind of sensitive; and I promise I am not gonna start that discussion again :
      It's always a good ideal when have race questions to use the current official US descriptors of race and ethnicity. Those in the box in the bottom right of the link here)

      Meow, that's a shame. Your answers were supposed to go straight to Ilsa, a buxom Swedish masseuse. Better luck next time.

      No love for students on the poll? I had to lie and say I'm employed working 40+ hours a week. Professional school at 50-70 hours a week sure feels like work, except having to pay for it rather than get paid. Maybe I was supposed to say I'm unemployed, not looking for work but that to me is far different than being in school.

      I guess I'm the "guy from New Britain" LOL.
      I just assumed there was a city in Connecticut named "Afar".

      I was unable to contribute to what I expected to be a worthwhile survey, as I was opted out by the title U.S. Demographics. This seems to be a very strange decision to discriminate against non U.S. residents, given that some 50% of pro baseball players (at least in the minor league teams) are from outside the U.S. Why was such an insular approach taken to gain information?

      A classic BYTO pie chart would illustrate this much better.

      These days that's a little like stealing a kid's piggy bank. I'll settle for buying up cheap housing.

      I'm sure I threw the demographics off the most on that one ... but hey, maybe you'll get sponsors from some girl places now.
