Committed: In Praise of Newbies

121714_readingWithout even meaning to, I’ve noticed a pattern lately of enjoying my friend’s “late” adoption of comic books, science fiction, and other so-called geeky things I thought were just mine. It’s surprisingly rewarding to vicariously experience the things I love through people who are new to them. New readers’ excitement about the books I have forgotten how to be surprised by, has become a wonderful way to stop taking them for granted. There are so many amazing things to enjoy that I can get jaded and forget how incredible they seemed when they were new to me. That’s why I love newcomers and even though I understand the instinct that makes some feel wary of them, it only takes letting them in a very tiny bit to feel how much their enthusiasm brings to the genre we love.

Committed: Survey – How Has Your Reading Changed?

My last article touched on the changes in the way I enjoy comic books, and it is something I’ve often discussed here. It always elicits interesting responses, particularly those of solidarity, which left me wondering about how your reading habits are evolving.

There is a massive disparity between the way I consumed comic books as a child, and the way that I do now, in terms of buying methods, changes in disposable income, free time to read, and what kind of subject matter I choose, as well as my own changing perception of comic books themselves and how that has affected my own enjoyment of them.

Now it is time to reach out and gather information about your changing reading habits and so I’ve compiled a short survey of only 10 very basic questions. From this I’ll be able to design an infographic (something I frequently do for clients, but I’ve never been able to do so for us, so this will be a first!) and next week we can look at the results together and ask some follow up questions for the next infographic…

Please pass this on to as many people as you can this week, I’d love to get a nice, big selection of answers from all sorts of people. Thank you!

(Note: All of the results and information gathered from you in this survey will be entirely anonymous.)
