Have an Opinion? Let’s Hear It!

check-mark.jpgEveryone’s got an opinion on something. We’d like yours about how we are doing here at FDL — and what you’d like to see more of in the coming year. So we’ve put together a quick reader survey to give you a chance to tell us what you, our readers, want most.

We’ve all got favorite issues and soapbox peeves, but we’d love to hear more about what you think on the wide range of topics we discuss here. What you’d like to see more of — or less.

For the last few months, we’ve been taking suggestion box notes from a variety of readers — your feedback has been really helpful. But we thought it would be useful to get an even larger section of comments. This seemed like another great way to gather as many reader voices in one place as we could.

What are you waiting for? We know you have an opinion or two to share…so, please do.

Fill out the FDL survey and let us know what you think is most important for discussion in the upcoming year. Your opinion is important to us, so please fill out the survey today!

PS — I’ll be speaking in Philadelphia on Wednesday evening at a meeting of the Philly chapter of the American Constitution Society beginning at 5:30 pm at UPenn law school. It will be a panel discussion with me, Adam Bonin, John Aravosis, Baratunde Thurston and Daniel Urevick-Ackelsberg. The topic will be a discussion about blogging, citizen activism and accountability:

The blogosphere began during the early months of the Bush Administration with opposition and criticism being the dominant modes for online progressives. With a new administration in the White House, how will the role of the netroots change? How do leaders of online opinion see their responsibilities with respect to the new President?

If folks have thoughts on those questions as well, please feel free to share. RSVP for the event if you live in the Philly area — would love to see some firepups there!
