It's been a while since I asked you to answer a few questions of my questionnaire. The one and only copy of my cookbook that I designed in the dark hours of the day was the prize to be won amongst those who did the questionnaire. The response has been great. The cookbook is on its way to Naomi Joffe who is still waiting for it, while Emirates Post and affiliates are handling the delivery (obviously very slowly).
The questions that I asked came out of curiosity, to learn more about my regular readers and fans. On purpose, I did not include a recipe into this post. On purpose, I did not try and connect the questionnaire post to Foodgawker, Tastespotting, etc. I didn't want to advertise the giveaway as this usually draws a lot of random traffic too. I wanted to talk to mainly those of you who come to my site regularly, to see what you guys are about.
Now here are the results:
Question 1: Where do you find your recipes?

Food blogs might be the obvious answer (especially when asked in a food blog), but I also wanted to see how the proportions are to other sources. You were given the choice to specify other sources too. Many of you commented that they would have liked to click all of the above. A few of you mentioned that they do their own creations.
Question 2: How many cookbooks do you own?

These results make me very proud. I couldn't name many blogs from which I have cooked 2-5 recipes. Thank you, guys. And more than 10% have tried more than 10 recipes? Unbelievable.
Question 10: In which part of the world do you live?

It may have seemed obvious, as I see most of my traffic coming from North America. I just wanted to check again with the faithful/regular ones. The answers here mirror where my overall traffic usually comes from.
