No surprise that FREE wins again! I personally have no problem with advertising and I've never taken a survey that asked the questions I would. Nevertheless, I wish you success with your venture, especially if it keeps you writing great articles.
I suppose you are not interested in maybes. But anyhow, a 'maybe' is missing in your poll. I wouldn't say 'no' and I appreciate you beeing that open but I don't like to be a 'product' anyways.
Good idea, but be careful, the results may end biased by survey design itself or simply because your readers are not a representative sample of the targeted photographers' population.
I'm with Rob? A few adverts won't harm and should help you. Most of us seem to get
with sites that are plastered with them?
Surveys really sound like a win-win situation. A few well placed ads would be fine as well I think!
