How did you first find this website?

Does this look familiar?


Hi there.

Bernard here. I've been wondering lately how people find this website (the "Ronald Bog Blog"). I'm trying to evaluate the different ways we've tried to promote the site, so it would be really helpful if you'd take 30 seconds to click below this post where it says COMMENTS and let us know. Thanks in advance! :)

For instance:

* Did you find this website by a Google search for something Shoreline related?
* Did someone email you the link?
* Did you see a link to this site on another website (if so, which one)?
* Did you see a flyer posted somewhere?
* Did you see the link on a Flickr photo?
* Did Sonya or I (Bernard) personally tell you about it?
* Etc.


I'd really appreciate it if you'd answer these 5 simple questions:

1) How did you first find this site?
2) Do you live in Shoreline?
3) Do you have this site bookmarked?
4) If you do have it bookmarked, how often do you look at the site?
5) Have you told anyone else about this site?


Also, feel free to add any other comments you might have. What do you like best about the site? What do you find most interesting or useful? What could we post more (or less) of?

Thanks!

  16. 1) Bernard found Carl's weather station, and Carl linked back to the blog post here.

    2) I live in neighboring Mountlake Terrace, but I work in Shoreline (North Ridge, within reach of Carl's weather station).

    3) Bookmarked, RSS-subscribed, and Twitter-followed.

    4) Whenever something new is posted, also a couple-to-few times a week to check in when I hadn't checked the RSS reader.

    5) Friends and family (like the nearby proposed-prison debate, learned from here), and an occasional @ShorelineBlog twitter reply. ^_^
