As you might already know, what we do here at Scarleteen and the way we do it has a lot to do with what young people tell us they want and need. Rather than deciding we know what our readers and users want and need better than they do, we figure most of that out by listening to what you tell us that is, and by interacting with you in discussions or reading your letters, to see where there seem to be gaps in your knowledge and information. We tend to decide what to write about based on the questions our readers ask us directly, and we hone things all the time based on valued reader input and feedback.
While this is something that goes on constantly as part of how we manage and run the site and organization, sometimes we want to be a little more organized about it.
So, we're doing a giveaway for 20 of our regular readers between the ages of 13 and 25 to make this happen. We've got a few simple questions to ask you about the site, and if you're already pretty familiar with it and keep up with it, this shouldn't take more than a half hour of your time. The first 20 folks to get back to us with these can get a free copy of our founder's young adult sexuality guide, S.E.X.: The All-You-Need-To-Know Progressive Sexuality Guide to Get You Through High School and College sent to them.
Interested? We'd love your help, and you can get a book, our gratitude, and content that continues to be influenced strongly by young people like yourself in return.
Here are the questions we need your answers to:
1) What are your three favorite articles or Sexpert Advice answers at Scarleteen? Please tell us what it is you love most about them.
2) If you have three, what are three articles or advice answers that you either really didn't like, or just did not find to be of any use to you? Please tell us what is is about them you disliked or found not to be personally useful.
3) What do you think is missing at the site that you feel like you or your peers need? That might be articles on a given topic, some kind of tool or widget, whatever you feel should be here but isn't.
That's it! All you need to do is to email your answers to those question to us here and be sure and include an address where we should send your book if you're one of the first 20 to reply back. Again, thanks so much for your help: as usual, we wouldn't be who we are without you and your voice.
