One of my tasks was to create a Poll on my blog. This involved people logging onto my blog and voting for what they want to see in a music magazine. My first question: This proves that the person viewing my blog reads pop music and I may base my findings on this.
Secondly and thirdly I asked How often you read magazines? Then I asked What layout you prefer on your magazine. This proves that this person prefers a hard copy to read such as a normal magazine and not a PDF file and this person prefers question and answer. Will use these in my magazine.
The next three questions were if the person ever uses the magazine website, how they access the music they listen to and how often the but music magazine. From this I will know how much emphasis I need to put on advertising the website as well as music sites. I can also vary the size of my magazine based on the once per month answer. I will need quite a long magazine to fill up a months worth of reading about music. I will not need to promote the website that much, however I will need to promote YouTube as this person uses it for music.
The next few questions were key in how I created the magazine and the content in it. This person likes pop music thus, reads pop music magazines. They also like appealing images therefore I will spend a lot of time on these images and but a lot of detail into the photographic side of it. They also prefer long shots so I will use this style in my magazine.
