2010 Reader Survey Results (Part 1 of 2)

Here’s a brief summary of the multiple choice results:

  • 95.3% of you are men. Sausage party!
  • 60% of you are between 22 and 32 years old.
  • Out of those of who own an iPhone or Android phone, 55.7% are likely to buy a Roosh app.
  • 88.5% of you think field reports would help your game.
  • 21.2% would likely buy an audiobook edition of Bang.
  • Only 14.7% own an e-reader. Most of you do not plan on buying one anytime soon.
  • 64.6% of you would not mind if I released a book in ebook format only.
  • About half of you like the current mix of game, travel, and lifestyle posts. A third wants to see more game posts.
  • 40.8% of you do not know I have a Twitter account.
  • 7.2% of you do not know I have a newsletter.
  • Two-thirds of my readers are begging for more reenactment videos.
  • 2.8% of you want me to commit suicide.

Before doing the survey I had ideas for three separate iPhone apps. The results only confirmed that it’s something you guys would be interested in, but then I did some research on the Apple approval process and realized that there is zero chance my apps would be improved, even if I toned them down. I guess what I’ll do is wait a year or two for Android to get more popular and write apps for it instead. Fucking Steve Jobs has deferred my dreams! On the bright side I don’t have to install iTunes bloatware on my computer.

Now let’s look at the write-ins. Keep in mind I only was able to display a fraction of the comments I received. Just because you don’t see yours here doesn’t mean it didn’t penetrate my being.

How do you feel about ebooks?

  • Who wants to read on a tiny gay screen.
  • Depends on the book. Throwaway reads are ok but I like having books I go back to on paper. Any kind of DRM makes them useless and I wouldn’t take them for free.
  • I like the privacy of ebooks; nobody knows what you’re reading
  • I work away from home (Englishman in France). A Kindle means I get immediate delivery of ebooks via 3G. I have >100 books on it at the moment which I can carry where and when I want. ebook IS the future
  • It won’t really take off till they combine them with smartphones.
  • Kindle is amazing. All my jackets have inside pockets, it slides right in. I look down on fellow public transportation riders who stare off into the distance, wasting their lives waiting for a bus. I think the Kindle is enough to get people reading again who would otherwise not, and game is enough to turn betas into alphas. They go hand-in-hand. Brilliant.
  • dictionary function is cool for all the big words you use [Editor’s note: Do I sense sarcasm?]
  • Ever since the time Amazon deleted versions of “1984” on people’s Kindles, I’ve decided to NEVER buy an e-book reader.
  • To be perfectly honest, I like ebooks because you can download them for free from third party sites

How do you feel if I released future books in electronic format only?

  • Ebooks make me think of self published wana-be hucksters.
  • I am ready to remit money only by post, not online [I get emails like this all the time.]
  • Whatever is cheaper
  • Do not use DRM on your ebook. It will greatly restrict the number of people who can read it (B&N DRM is not compatible with Amazon, for example). Those who want to steal text will do it from PDF anyway. [None of my current electronic editions contain DRM, even the Kindle versions]
  • A few years from now printed books will be very rare. In the new version of Fahrenheit 451 they’ll be deleting hard drives….
  • Real paper books are more respectable
  • Does Amazon have the new edition of Bang yet? I want to buy it, but don’t want to get the old edition by mistake. [Yes it does.]

Do you think I’m achieving a good content mix on my blog?

  • Your posts on how American women suck get a little repetitive. We all know it’s true, but continually posting on it is unnecessary. More ACTUAL game posts, please.
  • You have a good mix, but I like your blogs on game the most, your travels are interesting but I don’t know how applicable they are to me bc I don’t international travel that much and the lifestyle is nice but I respect that we have 2 different lifestyles (which is ok, I’m not trying to copy you)
  • Your not about Travel or liefstyle man, sorry. Your about fucking bitches (game) and that is what makes you best. If you going to do something travel related it has to be all about the game inside of it. Like how Naughty Nomad does the city guides for places around the world but it’s all there just to help you game more.
  • Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve read most of all I’ll ever need to read about game, but I would never get tired of reading about lifestyle and travel.
  • Your experiences abroad are far more entertaining and informative than those of the local variety.
  • Your mix is fine, but as a writer/intellectual with definite plans for global travel, I’d like to hear more about your vagabond artist mindset.
  • Maybe it’s just where i’m at in my life, but I completely skip your travel posts.
  • I’d especially like to see more practical traveling advice – “this is what I did to not get mugged,” “your best option for travel in s/a or afr. is such-and-such,” and “here’s how to make fast friends with couch surfing hosts so you can keep it up”
  • You don’t talk about politics much these days. If possible, try to talk about it even less.
  • I like the life philosophy posts you put up, they break it up very well. The travel ones are good, but make me feel shit for how little places I have been.
  • Something about how to find yourself.
  • Game and lifestyle posts are the main reason I read your blog. The travel stuff is cool too, but I find the travel posts I enjoy the most also have elements of game and lifestyle woven in.
  • Game should always be the backbone of your blog’s content but I’d also like to see more posts about gaming in foreign countries and I think this is a unique aspect of your blog that greatly adds to its appeal.
  • The game and travel posts are the core or your blog’s appeal. I’m having trouble recalling lifestyle posts which were not all but about travel or game. So I guess I’d advocate upping the game posts until you get to travelling again, otherwise the blog starts to lean a bit much towards the ‘life’ posts
  • Maybe you could also share thoughts on game on underage girls? i am sixteen years old and still have to do some improvising

What is your verdict on the teddy bear reenactment videos?

  • I would never look at freakin’ teddy bear do anything.
  • They’re ok but it wouldn’t be the end of the world if you stopped doing them.
  • The personal crisis one was a window into your soul.
  • They’re all fucking hilarious. I have a picture of you in my mind as a guy with dead-pan delivery, and the videos match that expectation and reinforce it. They’re hilarious + informational.
  • Ah, where to begin. I love direct game one “are you scared? because I’m not”. I like the idea that maximum ballage can take you places. The follow up with your sister is great too. The jilted, previously banged chic one was also excellent. Of the ones not contributed by you, Roissy’s was the best, though being a regular reader of his as well certianly helps. That lawyer shit never gets old.

Pretend my blog is a radio show and you can call in any post you want. What is the title of a post you would like to see in the future?

I second this request. I can barely even stand reading that blog anymore.

Who is the “Chateau” and why was it created?

Post that needs to be discussed – if you have any actual experience in this realm of game, that is:

The Difinitive, Step-by-Step, Guide to Banging Blonde Bimbos.

If you can’t write it, then find a guest poster/blogger who can.

Anyone who doesn’t know Roissy’s real name by now hasn’t been paying attention. Lady Raine outed him almost a year ago.

Seems to me like roissy is getting someone else to write some of his posts or is pretending that someone else is. Anonymity, he’s covering his ass for legal reasons.
But I could be wrong. That happened once before.

If you had a guide about EUROPEAN game, i’d be happy to pay. And besides, those of us who have the $$ to drop on an e-book will for sure only drop it in Euro game, as Latin america is for those without $$ — and we are allergic to hostels and situations where we might get sick of the water.

“What I would tell my younger self”

I want this one too. A lot of your readers are young. I am 22 and would like to read a hypothetical conversation between present day Roosh and 20 year old Roosh.

I can imagine what you would say but it would still be an insightful read.
