Thanks for filling out this anonymous survey. Some of these questions are just about reader preferences; others are demographic questions—things I've been asked recently, as I've talked with potential sponsors.

There's a message box at the end if you have anonymous suggestions or comments. Of course, you can also always reach me directly at bill@understandably.com. Thanks!

Let's talk about the types of content each day. I sometimes write historical stories. Would you like to see fewer or more of these? For example, the forgotten story of the Black sailor who rescued 15 others in the Pacific, the Wall Street secretary who secretly accumulated a $9 million fortune, and the 18th century inventor who spent his entire life perfecting the “marine chronometer.” https://www.understandably.com/p/you-go-over-there https://www.understandably.com/p/squirreled-away https://www.understandably.com/p/about-time
Fewer of these kinds of stories.
More of these kinds of stories.

How about the personal essays? Examples include what happened when I quit a job after 1 day, and the “equidistant” historical idea (pegged to my memory of the assassination attempt on President Reagan). https://www.understandably.com/p/quit-my-job https://www.understandably.com/p/40-years-man

I sometimes write business and entrepreneurship stories. Fewer or more of these? Examples include recent stories on the Chinese woman who built a $7 billion fortune selling screens to Apple, my take on the books and documentaries about WeWork, and more broadly, the guy in New Hampshire recording tens of thousands of songs, so as to make a few dollars a year on each of them. https://www.understandably.com/p/stunned-and-confused https://www.understandably.com/p/i-said-yes https://www.understandably.com/p/hustle

Next up: the life-hacker type stories. Fewer or more? For example this study on neurology and how to make Zoom calls less bad, the 8-minute anxiety-reducing video, and the one about why you should schedule doctor visits early in the day. https://www.understandably.com/p/not-another-zoom-call https://www.understandably.com/p/8-minutes https://www.understandably.com/p/first-available

And, I write "icons of entrepreneurship" stories. Examples include things like the “disagree and commit” and “jeff@amazon.com” stories about Jeff Bezos, and the “better than nothing” low expectations story with Elon Musk. https://www.understandably.com/p/disagree-and-commit https://www.understandably.com/p/jeff-bezoss-email-address https://www.understandably.com/p/better-than-nothing
