Thanks - you guys are great!

A week ago we sent out a survey to our subscribers.  We were trying to figure out what you're most eager to know more about in the area of home improvement. 

I expected to get about 100 responses at most.  I was flabberghasted when more than 500 of you took the time to  answer questions and tell us about the projects that you're feeling the most pressure to complete.

You painted a very clear picture and gave us compelling vignettes about your lives and what you're facing as you look around your homes.  I've personally sifted through more than 40 pages of comments, and studied the results of the multiple choice questions.

Here's how your answers look in a graph:
ToolGirl survey resultsThe picture you've painted is that you're most concerned about weatherproofing and making sure you feel safe and secure in your home.  In the number two position is having fresh ideas for frugal upgrades.  And if and when the chips are really down, you want to know how to preen your home most effectively for resale.   

Thank you to all of you who took the trouble to respond to our survey request, and a special thanks to those who added their personal thoughts to the end of the survey form.  We're working on developing some great ways to help you get where you want to go!
