Help out with My Little Po-Mo vol. 2 by taking a survey...

ETA: Welcome EQ Daily readers! If you'd just like to take the survey, you can skip this paragraph. If you're interested in this project, I recommend you check out the New Readers Guide, and if you'd like to provide some extra support, you can give to the Kickstarter campaign to fund the second My Little Po-Mo book! (Only $45 from goal as of this writing!)

Are you a brony? (Odds are fairly high that if you're reading this site, you are.) Would you like to help out my research? I didn't quite get enough surveys at conventions, by which I mean I got maybe a couple of dozen respondents and the always-awesome Charles Dunbar got about 50 more, which is still well short of the 100-odd I was hoping to collect. So, I turn to the Internets. Please only respond once, and only if you have not already taken this particular survey (which is NOT the survey I conducted last year). Feel free to respond with a signed comment, an anonymous comment, or you can e-mail your answers to me at

  1. Never/Not in the last 6 months
