If you subscribe to my blog’s newsletter you probably saw the survey I included in last week’s email. I wanted to take the opportunity to get feedback from everyone to see what aspects you like about TechBarber.com, and what areas you think could use a little improvement. When I created this site (almost a year ago), I saw a giant hole in the technology sector online. I say that because I know a lot of people who are interested in technology, but they become intimidated when they hear terms like “the cloud” – especially from some of the larger tech sites on the web.
The intention of this blog is to cut through all the noise you see on a daily basis, whether it’s from a giant technology blog or one of the sites you frequent regularly. I hope by following me you’ve picked up some tidbits of information you wouldn’t have otherwise stumbled upon, and I hope I’ve clarified a few things for you along the way as well.
Generally speaking, a lot of you answered the survey in the same way and that makes my job easy. Here are some of my takeaways for the coming weeks and months:
Topics You Enjoy Reading About
- Evernote, Dropbox
- Articles that introduce you to new technology, devices, and apps in a way that some of the larger technology blogs may overlook
- Answering User Questions
Topics You Would Like Me To Avoid
- Articles pertaining to social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook)
- Apple Desktops & Operating Systems
- Generally speaking, you enjoy the look and feel of the site. 100% of you in fact!
- The vast majority of you enjoy the tone of the articles on the site. Not too dry, not too sloppy and relaxed.
- While you enjoy topics like Evernote, Dropbox, and “life organization”, you also enjoy the variety of topics discussed.
- This is my third blog post in a row where the spell checker found “0″ spelling mistakes so I’m on a roll. Not a word about the grammar or spell-check misfires!
One thing that I was pleased to see was that a lot of you want to see me answer more questions from readers. I do receive questions from time to time, but I’ve been answering them via email so they don’t get any “air time” on the site. I promise I’ll make an effort to field more reader questions in a public fashion moving forward, with the reader’s permission of course.
In the meantime, the easiest way for me to include more questions on the site is to have you ask more questions.
Do you have a computer, mobile device, or general technology question that you’d like answered in a straightforward, easy to understand fashion? If so, feel free to comment on this blog post or send me an email or Tweet. No question is too basic or too far off the beaten path, so lets hear some!!
Oh, if you missed the survey here’s a chance for the rest of you to answer the TechBarber blog survey:
