I’m back today to share the demographics from the reader survey nearly 400 of you took about a month ago. I shared the blog-related results on Tuesday, in case you missed it. Again, a big thank you and fist bump to all of you who played along.
I kind of already knew this, but my key demographic is college educated, 25-34 year old women (what’s up with no dudes reading my blog?) who are married and childless, but most are hoping to have children one day. Holy smokes. That’s me, you guys. You’re me and I’m you. Crazy pants. No wonder why we get along so well. But I will say if I was to total up all the readers with kiddos it would probably equal the childless readers, which is totally cool. Just something I have to throw in so all the mommas don’t get mad at me because I love my momma readers too. Shoot, you guys know I love all of you like Justin Beiber loves getting tattoos.
Furthermore, most of you live in two people, single-family homes of which you own. And quite a few of you own pets. I don’t know why the “other” option didn’t show up in the graph. But some of you do own different pets, like birds, guinea pigs, turtles, sheep, chinchillas, hedgehogs, rats, lizards, chickens, and husbands (you said it, not me).
I drew another conclusion from the above results– many of you are like me. You live in 2 person, single-family homes of which you own. And a sizable amount of you have a dog or dogs. Just like yours truly. This makes sense because I read a fair amount of blogs written by women who are in my life stage/situation. Does this mean I can’t relate to readers who aren’t in my same, exact situation? Heck no. I used to rent an apartment. I used to be < 25. I used to be single. I have friends with kids. The list goes on.
I really enjoyed geeking out and tabulating the results of the survey and finding out more about all of you. And again, I appreciate all the awesome comments you left me in the blog-related survey. You guys are the best.
Are you surprised by the demographics?
Are you me and I’m you? (That sounds really deep, no?)
