Survey Participants Needed

Hello Hoboken411 readers!

cute-puppy-hoboken411-survey.jpgAs many of you may already know, Hoboken411 started out less than 18 months ago as an “idea to create something fun and useful for Hoboken”. It has now achieved some pretty significant reader traffic each month. I honestly hope that what 411 has become has provided a good majority of the regular readers at least some kind of satisfaction, fun and usefulness.

With that being said, some of you know that this “job” is my only job. It’s quite a difficult task to do with limited resources, and I feel that I’ve done a pretty respectable job in the last year and half. Knowing what this “job” entails on a weekly basis, you wouldn’t want it, believe me! But it’s my passion, and I forge ahead with optimism and faith.

Additionally, like any media project or publication, I make a living by having sponsors. Any free newspaper, magazine, website or TV show operates in the same manner.

You may have noticed a few more banner advertisements as of late. That’s good news for Hoboken411, because some national advertising networks recently approved the site for their clients. Patience is a virtue they say.

I apologize if some of the formatting has been awry, or if any of you have experienced pop-up ads. There are a lot of settings to go through, and I’m sorting things out. Hopefully in the next day or two, all problems should be rectified. Oh, and about 5% of the readers use Safari (version 419.3). Please let me know if you’re experiencing problems. I’ve tried it out in the new version 3 beta, and it seems to work better. You may want to either use Firefox, or upgrade to the new version while I figure out what’s going on.

Regardless, one of my new sponsor networks has a survey that will help bring more appropriate advertisers on board, as well as possibly create some exclusive relationships with some valuable clients.

If you could be so kind as to take this (short) less than 2 minute survey, I’d be very appreciative. It comes at no cost to you, and will only help me continue providing this service in the future. Please note that no personal information is taken from this, and you should be returned to 411 upon completion of the survey. I’m looking for a couple hundred responses, so the more the merrier!

Thanks again for reading Hoboken411, and look forward to being a voice of Hoboken for a long time to come!

(apologies upfront, as this may be a duplicate post…just hit “submit” & nothing happened….)

411: IMHO, you’ve been doing a phenomenal job. I’m grateful & I thank you.

And I don’t give a rat’s ass about any of the ads on the blog. I can easily overlook anything I don’t like, b/c I value what you’re doing for Hoboken.

Soon enough, I hope you’ll find a life outside of 411.

Oscar will make sure you get your priorities in order.

411, your blog, IMHO, is a phenomenal contribution to Hoboken.

Thank you.

Myself, I don’t give a rat’s ass whatever ads you get to subsidize your efforts. I can overlook anything possibly unsavory, b/c I value what you do.

I hope, soon enough, you can figure out a way to have a life outside of 411. You’re surely entitled!!

And soon enough, Oscar will demand it.
Part of the reason we have dogs…they help us prioritize!

Again, thanks for all you do!


That’s a husky or malamute puppy. So freakin cute


You’ve done a VERY respectable job in the past 18 months. I think you do a fantastic job running this thing.


I did your survey.
