Back to school…

I haven’t said it nearly enough: THANK YOU, you sweet, wonderful, kind people who posted such sweet, wonderful, kind comments on the results! I loved reading them! They made me feel warm and fuzzy! As Pam from Gingerbread Snowflakes put it,

Also love the reaction posted at Mixed Martial Arts and Crafts!

I’m taking a break from surveying and researching for a little while–all that compiling wore me out!

The Results: 483 Craft Bloggers Say…

The results have been tallied! And re-tallied, and re-re-tallied. Thanks to Google Docs, Excel’s “counta” function, and WordPress’s refusal to crash, you can read all of the results after the jump. Each question has a chart of the answers and most have an accompanying table; it’s a lot of information, but I wanted to put in both in order to be accessible to as many readers as possible.

You are welcome to use these results, to cite them in blog posts, on discussion boards and in print. In fact, I’m very much looking forward to reading your reactions. I ask, however, that you do not reproduce any of the charts, tables, or text below without linking back to this site and in print, without giving me credit. I worked very hard on this project, and I want as many people as possible to check out the site. Which brings me to…

The survey will stay open for the rest of 2011, at least! If I get many more responses, I’ll update with another monster post.

Here are the results for 483 craft bloggers who took the survey:
