It may sound odd, but it really helps me stay motivated when I know a little about the people who wander by JDLand. Plus it might be fun to find out a little more about what residents, office workers, and visitors like about the neighborhood.

So, it would help me greatly if you could take two or three minutes to fill out this quickie questionnaire. I'll eventually post statistics on the results, but individual questionnaire responses are safe with me!

I'll also give away a free JDLand t-shirt to two random respondents, as if you needed any further reason to fill this out!


Alas, the polls are closed, but you can now see the results. And congrats to the winners!
