It’s the middle of November, a period of calm before the holiday season. As we approach the end of the year, we reflect: How has 2019 unfolded? Have I met my blogging goals? Are we on track to meet our business goals?

If you’re reading this, it’s likely you’re using WordPress.com for your blog, your portfolio, or your website. How has your site helped you reach your goals? What has it helped you do or achieve this year?

Did you finally make a portfolio for your photography? Did you build a landing page for your consulting business so potential clients could learn more about you? Did you create an online hub for your organization to spread the word about what you do in the community?

Do you have any suggestions for ways people can promote the WordPress User/Developer Survey?

We’ve always promoted the survey through a banner on WordPress.org, plus an article on WordPress News and through word of mouth. This has been successful in the past, but less so in recent years. In 2015*, 45,997 people filled out the survey, but in 2016 and 2017, less than 10,000 responses came in. We won’t have time to add a notice to everyone’s dashboard (even if everyone agreed that would be wise), so this year I’d like to ask everyone to help promote the survey through as many channels as they have available to them.
