Will You Please Tell Me What You Think of The Big Outside?

Will You Please Tell Me What You Think of The Big Outside?

By Michael Lanza

Dear Reader, I appreciate that you read my blog, and I want to know what you think and what you want. Yes, really.

Whether you’ve been reading it for years or only recently discovered The Big Outside, I hope you see that I’m striving to share stories, images, and information that inspire and help you do the things you love to do outdoors. Now I’d like to know more specifically what you think of my blog—and what you’d like to see more of.

That’s why I’m hoping you’ll please take just a few minutes to fill out this reader survey, and I’m offering a gift to show my appreciation for you doing that.

The survey below will take you about five minutes to complete. (That’s less time than it takes to apply for a national park backcountry permit—I should know, I’ve applied for a lot of permits!)

To show my appreciation for you taking the time to complete my reader survey, I’m going to give away a three-month subscription to The Big Outside for free to one person selected randomly from among everyone who completes the survey.

If you win and you’re already a paying subscriber, I’ll add three months to your subscription at no cost to you.

Honestly, given the number of people who generally respond to any survey, your odds are pretty good of winning three months of full access to my blog for free. It’s as easy as that.

Don’t wait! I’m running this survey and giveaway for just a few days. Fill it out and enter to win a free subscription to The Big Outside now!

Thank you for taking the time to let me know what you think about my blog. I appreciate it.

Thanks also for reading and following The Big Outside.

    Really enjoyed the article about bears. Did a part of the AT last spring, and with all I heard, was a little worried. But did learn from your article. Thank you. Even though I grew up in Montana, I was concerned.
