Yes, the results are in. A total of 87 readers took the Heroine Sheik survey last week, and shared what they thought about the site with the painful honesty that can only come from checking off a box. Here’s what we learned:

-Most of readers who took the survey visit once a day or a few times a week. A similar majority say they’ve been reading the site for months–though fifteen say they’ve read for years. Wow, thanks lovely dork-dom buddies!

-Almost 75% of readers said they found Heroine Sheik through a link from another video game blog. Some of those blogs you guys read the most, apparently: Kotaku, Nintendo Wii Fanboy, Sexy Videogameland, Joystiq, Wonderland, Gay Gamer, The Escapist, Game/Life, and GameSetWatch.

-40 respondents liked the new site design, 2 liked the old one better, and 45 didn’t notice anything had changed.

-A third of you read Click Me regularly, a third sometimes, and a third never.

-Your favorite kinds of Heroine Sheik posts are ones about my articles, and ones that analyze (and over-analyze) games. On a similar note, your favorite topic of discussion is sex and gender analysis. Have I mentioned lately you all rock?

-Here are some excerpts from the super sweet things readers had to say about what makes Heroine Sheik posts special: “It’s in-depth commentary on subjects most people won’t bring up”; “They’re intelligent. That’s rare”; “I find sex and gaming to be an interesting topic that doesn’t get coverage, particularly the sort of geeky/quirky intelligent sex positive sort it deserves”; “It is Bonnie’s unique perspective I enjoy most, no matter what area she is focusing on.”

-Last but not least, your preferred inappropriate game cake was far and away the Zelda upskirt!

Unfortunately, the bad news is the survey fell short of the 100 responses we needed for baking. The good news is, all the responses were super helpful and I really appreciate everyone who took the time to fill them in! Maybe next time, icing undies…
