2017 RABlog week prompt survey

2017 RABlog week prompt survey


We have a badge for RABlog week 2017.  The badge at the left was selected in our recent poll by a small margin.  We had 49 votes cast this year, and of those 21 selected the winning design.  The next highest vote went to badge number 4 which received 14 votes, and the other two received 14 votes.  We had one clear winner and one clear loser.  Design number 3 only received 3 votes.

I am now in the process of working on the banner and the participant badge based on the winning design.  I will have them ready for the opening of RABlog week on September 25, 2017.

A new survey


With the badge selected it is now time for the second survey in order to select blog prompts for the week. As stated before, I divided the prompts into three areas: Medicine, Support and Self-Knowledge, and Awareness.

All 15 prompts were suggested by those who responded to the badge survey that just finished or last year’s survey to choose prompts.  In fact, I received 20 suggestions, so the biggest job I had this year was deciding which suggestions to leave out.  It was a tough task.

Format of this survey


There are six pages; the first is an introduction page, then one page for each topic area, a page to suggest prompts for next year and then a list of where ot find RABlog week on Social media.

Each prompt area has potential prompts; you will be asked to rank them 1-5 with 1 being your first choice for a prompt you want from that area.  The top two vote getters in each area will be included as prompts for 2017 RABlog week.  The most liked prompt for each area will be chosen as a daily prompt; the three second place prompts will be used for Thursday of RABlog week and as the two wildcard selections.

As always the Friday prompt is pre-selected, and it will be:

Great Blogs I have read this week – RABlog week is, at its heart, a way for bloggers to connect. Tell others about the great blogs you have read over the week. Perhaps you have found a gem from a blogger you did not know before or maybe one of your friends shared special insight. Give the high five in print to another blogger or two who participated in 2017 RABlog week.

Please vote as many times as you wish.  If you cannot decide on the best prompt, you can express your desire by voting twice.  Using this scale each vote counts a lot, so voting more than once, even with conflicting votes, can help your selections to be included in the prompt list.  These prompts are so good that you can expect to see those not chosen again next year.

You do not have to intend to participate in RABlog week to vote. We value the opinions of readers and bloggers.  The survey will be open until midnight September 7th.  I will publish the results by midnight September 10, 2017, and the web site will be set up in time for RABlog week.

So let’s get started and just incase you missed it:
