BNE: HOT OR NOT 2010 Reader Survey – Results and Winner!

Thank you so much to all of you lovely people who completed the BNE: HOT OR NOT 2010 Reader Survey. It’s really heartening to know that so many of you enjoy reading the blog and care enough about it to take the time to provide your comments.

Rest assured that your feedback is not disappearing into the ether! As a result of your suggestions, here are some things that I am planning to improve or implement in 2010.

  • You like the restaurant/bar reviews. I’ll be introducing additional refined categories (maybe coffee? sushi?) so that you just don’t get a dump of restaurants when you click on ‘Restaurants and Cafes’.
  • Ah, the eternal problem of the binary HOT or NOT rating system. I’ve had many suggestions to introduce a ‘lukewarm’ tag but I think I will continue to resist a graduated rating. I’ve started to be stricter with the rating. Basically, it boils down to ‘would I recommend this to my friends?’ – if not, because it’s not bad but not that great, then it gets a NOT.  Time and money are precious and I don’t want to be recommending you to places that are just meh.
  • I hadn’t realised that my links to Google Maps were defaulting to Google Maps UK (I bought my laptop in the UK) and that was causing problems. So from now on, Google Maps Australia links only! I’ve also created a specific BNE: HOT OR NOT Google Map pinpointing all the places reviewed on the blog and will be publishing it soon. I’m just working through a backlog of posts.
  • You like links to other blog posts about the same/thing place so you can get a few different opinions. Given that some of you found BNE: HOT OR NOT via other blogs, it’s only fair that I return the favour and take you other sites you might enjoy. I’ll also be updating the BNE HOT Reads shortly.

Finally, congratulations to the winner of the Aesop Jet Set kit, drawn out from the Kitchenaid – Kyliept. Kylie, please email your postal address to jetsettingjoyce@gmail.com to claim your prize!
