UPDATE: THANK YOU FOR THE EXTRAORDINARY RESPONSE! I'm told I have to conclude the survey otherwise surveymonkey.com starts charging me for each new survey taken. I didn't think that would happen at all, let alone happen so quickly. Thank you for help. I'm truly grateful! Will ask Twitter to choose the winner of the signed books.
And congrats to Steve Larochelle of Siver Spring, MD, winner of the signed copies.
I'm asking a favor today.
It's fall and fall has gotten busy, happily so. I hope soon to be making some
changes to this site and truly want to know why you click here. Will you help me and take 90 seconds to
click through an 8-question survey? I'll be grateful for any and all comments. What do you like
about this site, what don't you like, what would you like more of?
I'm also gathering emails for what
will be a newsletter. The great majority of you who comment here leave your actual email, which comes to me via typepad. This is great because sometimes I
like to respond personally to your comment. But I don't collect these
addresses or do anything with them. A newsletter, offering additional
content (no spam, filler or crap, I promise), is email based, and there will be
a question on the survey noting this.
My ingenious incentive for you to
take the survey and leave your email address is to give away to one such person a copy
of Michael Symon's new book, Live To Cook, AND Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc At Home,
respectively signed by Michael and Thomas to whomever you choose (and by me if
you wish—I'm the "with" guy on these two books, and proud to be so).
It's not imperative that you leave an
email address if you simply want to answer the questions anonymously. Either way
I'll be grateful.
