Brief Whaleoil Readership Survey because of poorly phrased original question

Dear Readers due to my inexperience I phrased a question poorly in the recent Whaleoil readership survey so the results were inaccurate.

Readers were able to select from a number of options as I wanted their age, gender, and sexual preference but I put it all in a single question instead of three and not every part of the question was answered by everyone.?I think readers felt that they had to select only one option which would explain why there were?786 in total who answered male or female but only 171 in total who selected heterosexual or homosexual.

In order to get an accurate picture I have redone that part of the survey and hope that you will all be so kind as to answer it for us.I have also added the option of not answering the sexual preference question.

I am asking the question because Whaleoil was a big supporter of the gay marriage bill but we have been accused of being homophobic by the left. I am interested to see how many gay readers we have for that reason. The results from the first inaccurate question, indicated that we have seven gay readers.

I have added a question about where our readers live as someone in the comments on the blog indicated that they would be interested to know that statistic.

My prediction for the results are as follows…

The great Whaleoil Readership survey

newlogoFor the second Whaleoil survey my aim is to find out as much as possible about our readership. I have asked about your food preferences, your favourite animal, your favourite Whaleoil posts and much, much more. By the end of it we should know what age and sex most of our readers are, why they read Whaleoil and whether or not they believe in God as well as other important things such as who would be their dream date if they were a woman. Of course, if you are already a woman that won’t be necessary. Actually I am looking forward to seeing what the gender breakdown of our readers actually is.

Before I get the results I will make the following percentage predictions:


  1. 70-30 split between men and women
