If you want this blog to get better, I need 5 minutes of your time

infoThis blog has now been running for 18 months and it’s time to obey that NGO golden rule – ‘if it moves, evaluate it’ (and if it keeps moving, restructure it…). So, could you please take 5-10 minutes (honest – it’s really quick) to fill out this on-line survey? Why? Because the feedback will help me improve the quality and relevance of the content and provide some evidence of audience interest (or lack of it) for my Oxfam bosses (they’re understandably suspicious that I enjoy blogging so much). In the interests of accountability, transparency, motherhood, apple pie etc, we’ll mash up the results of the questionnaire with the various other sources of stats and feedback, and report back in due course.

    Dear Mr. Green
    I am writing from Papua New Guinea and had trouble accessing the online survey due to a slow internet connection. I have been reading your blog very regularly for the last year. I worked at a microfinance bank in Mongolia and am now consulting for a microfinane commercial bank in PNG.
    I have not yet gone back to school to get a masters but plan to soon. Your blog has been a wonderful source of academic insight. I particularly appreciate your summaries of papers and reports.
    Your blog helps take the work that I am doing and put it in a global context. It is so easy to get bogged down with the operational minutia of running a financial institution.
    Thank you very much for such a valuable service.
    All the best,
    Sam Grant

  2. Particularly I think it is a very good decision to open a public evaluation about the blog. I am comfortable and happy to talk about this way where I can keep in touch with the world facts and to supply my feed back about what I think, feel and take side in a discussing. As a Brazilian teacher here, on this blog, I have found many moments to observe how people think and express their culture. I am interest in all kind of themes that are shared In the Blog. On the other hand, I would like find here more issues about education all over the world because it brings me how education questions are lead abroad my country. I know my English can seem poor but this is unique way I have to establish my opinion. Finally I want to say to Mr Duncan that I have learned so much with his Blog and I really would be happy if this work go ahead. I think you are getting your aims! Congratulations!
