I’m thinking of writing an ebook and would love your feedback

Over the past few months I’ve been toying with the idea of self-publishing an ebook about technical marketing and blogging. These are topics that I feel are very important for a technical audience (one that is often less keen on marketing and self-promotion).

However, before committing to investing a large amount of my time and energy in such a project, I thought it would be best to gauge the interest level in this idea amongst my readers first. I would also like to understand what areas interest you the most, and what you’d like to get out of such a book.

For example, would you like to learn how to blog so as to earn extra income? Or maybe how to further your career? Perhaps you’re interested in promoting your own products (such as desktop software or a web application) online.

If the interest is there, I want to get feedback as early as possible so as to create a useful step by step roadmap that truly answers your questions and serves your needs well.

If you are intrigued, please consider filling out the following brief survey. Thank you very much in advance for your valuable input.

    What do non-technical people need but don’t ask for because they think it’s impossible?

    What things are non-technical people currently doing the hard (inefficient and time consuming) way because they don’t know how to program? Invariably, they do these things and they feel smart but they don’t realize that their 8 hours work could be automated into a 2 minute shell script.

    In other words, I understand how to program, I just don’t understand enough about social media or marketer’s needs to suggest improvements that they might like.
