Survey Results: What YOU think about this vocabulary blog

Thanks again to everyone who participated in our survey last week! 

BTW, you still have time to take this week’s survey for another chance to win an Amazon $25 gift card – this one closes Friday the 18th at 9:00pm PST https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/vocabnetwork11-17-11

We’ve learned a lot about what you all want from this blog, what you like and dislike, and what we can change in the future to reflect what you want to see.

Here are some of the results:

You like the idea of controversial topics, as long as they’re not too controversial.  We certainly want to start some lively discussions, and we’re glad to know you’re on board to talk about touchy subjects!

 

 

We were glad to see that our Vocablet of the Day posts help you to understand, use, and remember vocab words!

We’re all about increasing language abilities, not just rote memorization of words and definitions, so it’s great that this kind of post helps bring meanings to life and make them memorable for you.

You were pretty evenly split about what kind of voice the blog should take.  We want to invite conversation, but we also want to provide information in a compelling way.  We’ll see if we can combine the two into interesting, informational posts that personally invite you to take a part in the discussion.

What we enjoyed most, and what helps us a lot, are all the individual comments you left – great to hear what you really think.  Thank you!

So, what matters most for you in a blog?  What do you look for, and what turns you off?  Let us know and we’ll incorporate your responses into our posts!

Word Jam Challenge

Time to get those creative juices flowing.

For this Challenge, we’ll be looking at the Animal Mysteries studylist.
Powerful words and thought-provoking stories — there’s so much we don’t know about our fellow Earthlings!

To participate, you are to write a very short — only a paragraph or two — story that includes as many words as you can from this studylist.

The Rules:

  • Your “Animal Mysteries” story must contain at least five words from the studylist and make some kind of sense.  No fair stringing words together that don’t mean anything.
  • The story can be about anything you want, as long as it’s not offensive or mean.
  • The story must be no more than 250 words (brevity is the soul of wit, after all).

Scoring will be based on:

  • Word Moxie (using the words in a clear, interesting, and meaningful way)
  • Storytelling (crafting a smooth, compelling narrative)
  • Overall creativity

POST YOUR STORY IN THE COMMENTS BEFORE MIDNIGHT, OCTOBER 12TH.

Winner gets:

  • Their story posted on the front page of the blog as a sticky for a whole week after the Challenge ends
  • A $10 iTunes gift card

Left brain language + right brain invention = full brain AWESOME!

So get to it!  Let’s see your Word Jam masterpieces!
