Not sure if Mindjet has ever surveyed our blog readers before so I thought it was time for you to weigh in and let us know what you think. How can I make the blog more useful for you?

The Mindjet Blog Reader Survey is short and deliberately open-ended. Answer what you want and skip over any questions.

Here are the basic areas that I ask about:

  • Topics: What would you like to see?
  • Types of Posts: What types of posts work best for you?
  • Posting Frequency
  • Blog design
  • Blog features
  • What do you like best?
  • What do you like least?
  • Any other comments or ideas to help me improve your experience

Here are ‘the rules’ – any and all ideas, suggestions and feedback are welcome. While I can’t promise to respond to every comment, I will commit to reading everything that you have to say.

I ask that you be honest and constructive with your feedback. I’ve spent a lot of time building up the blog over the last few months and want to continue making this destination a valuable resource to the growing Mindjet community.

So, it’s now up to you!

Please add your thoughts and ideas into this survey or in the comments below.

    Michael, I certainly enjoyed trying Mindmanager8 and now have the bundled version. I have been trialling the software and hoped to have a solution for our team of 7 or 8 people who all have to contribute to our Design Projects. I had envisaged using the maps as a Project Tracking tool (indeed there are a number of Product Development Templates in the Jet Pack)
    I have found that in theory the system would be perfect for us, as the difficulty we have in finding information that needs to be kept inside a project (some pieces of information may need to be accessed from more than one project also – and it makes our document Control unsfe to have copies of things in multiple places. However I have found that even if only using a map on my local hard drive, if I hyperlink to files on the server they come up as broken. I have discussed this with your HelpDesk and they say it may be HML induced limitations on the length of routes to the file or Network Filesharing set-up.
    Please can you let me know what can be done, or other wise put me straight – I may have to investigate getting another software system for our team of eight – which I don’t really want to do as the Mapping system seems and simple and very flexible, graphic and visual way of getting efficient. Thanks and regards

    Just one thing Michael, full feeds on the RSS. I don’t know if this is deliberate to bring us to the website, but I’d prefer a full feed so that I can read your excellent posts in my feedreader!

    I did not fill out the survey because it felt like an essay I had to write instead of a survey.

    You do a great job, I enjoy the blog articles and read them every time and always find great insights into your posts. I also follow other Mind Mapping Blogs and find them going off in areas I do not care for yet your blog has opened my eyes to even greater possibilities.

    My take…keep doing what you are doing and maybe find ways to engage us or get us to engage more in the conversation/comments.

    Dear Michael,

    I filled your questionnaire (it has repetitive questions number 1 and 9).
    Good luck for revamping the MindJet Blog.

    Warmest regards,

    PS: may also be listed as recommended blogs, as it reached 1.070+ articles about mind mapping and has 99 MindJet articles?

    You’ve done an excellent job between the Mindjet Blog, Twitter, Posting to Mindmapping Websites, etc. It seems that everywhere I turn you’ve already been there adding content to the conversation. I’m a fairly creative person but I don’t think I can even add any possible suggestions except to keep on bringing more of what you’re already doing. You are definitely an ambassador for Mindjet in the highest degree of the term. I don’t know how you can possibly keep up the pace that you have set for yourself, but I’m going to enjoy the results as long as you do. My only suggestion is that Mindjet begin training somebody to follow you around and learn what you do so they can try to keep up the very excellent work that you do while you take an occasional vacation…
