Please Participate in Our 2012 UXmatters Reader Survey

November 1, 2012

This month, we’re celebrating UXmatters’ seventh anniversary. As part of our anniversary issue each year in November, we conduct our annual reader survey to find out how we’re doing and what our readers want and need. This year’s survey is particularly important because we’re embarking upon a re-envisioning of the UXmatters Web site, and we’d like to do some user research to find out about your needs before making any decisions. So, please participate in our 2012 UXmatters Reader Survey and help us to ensure that our design and development efforts target real user needs. Thank you!

Since we launched UXmatters in November 2005, we’ve published 628 articles—including columns, interviews, and reviews of books, conferences, and products for UX professionals—on a broad range of topics. Thank you to our 175 authors, who live and work all around the world and include 34 columnists who write for UXmatters on a regular basis. We greatly appreciate their many excellent contributions to UXmatters, which consistently provide exceptional value to the UX community. The number of UX professionals reading UXmatters continues to grow. Over the past year, 652,770 people have visited UXmatters, up from 505,900 the previous year, for a grand total of 1,388,520 pageviews.

By participating in our 2012 UXmatters Reader Survey, you can help us to continue to serve the needs of the worldwide UX community. Please tell us what you’d like UXmatters to be, how well we’re meeting your needs, what topics you’d like to read about on UXmatters in the future, and a little something about yourself. We’d really like to hear from you!

Completing the survey takes only a few minutes. Once the survey closes on December 1, 2012, we’ll publish the results on our Web site.

Thanks, in advance, for participating in our 2012 UXmatters Reader Survey and helping to guide the future of UXmatters!
