Want to help us stay alive and get better? Please take a survey

These are scary times for the journalism business, and yet we wake up every day wanting to do good journalism, and you come here wanting to read it.

How will our site survive? How will we get better? How can you help?

I’ve already asked you for money. Now, in a new survey that you can find here and that will take just five minutes, I request your information.

This includes personal stuff like if you’re a teacher or a journalist or a reformer or a saint and what kind of office supplies you buy, but also fun stuff like what topics we’re not covering enough and what we’re doing right.

The idea is that we could use some of the information to help us pay for ads that would help us pay our rents. And we can use the rest to be better journalists. Everything personal will stay completely private.

One more reason to take the survey — which, again, you can take by clicking here: One lucky reader who fills it out will win a $100 Amazon.com gift certificate.
