Dear Grits reader,The idea would be to continue to have link-and-comment type posts on the public part of the blog but to begin featuring more original, in-depth content behind a paywall. Take the survey and let me know what you think of the idea.
First, thank you for subscribing to Grits for Breakfast, and I hope you find the content useful. Please take a moment to fill out this reader survey in order to help me make the blog even more useful and interesting to you.
With the justice system ballooning and the number of mainstream reporters declining, there's more and more ground to cover on the issue areas Grits writes about, and fewer people than ever devoted to the task. Key agency boards and legislative committees too often meet in virtual secrecy, as far as the public is concerned, simply because no one shows up to report what they are doing.
I am considering taking this hobby to the next level by devoting myself to performing more actual, ground-level journalism on Grits for Breakfast (as opposed to mainly commenting on stories written by others). But before proceeding, I need to better understand your needs, and whether you would support expanded coverage in key areas. The additional time and expense might even require a paid subscription to access premium, original content, so I want to move carefully and with plenty of input from you.
To that end, it would help me tremendously if you could take a couple of minutes to fill out this brief reader poll to help me decide whether this idea makes sense.

Please take Grits reader survey
Grits is considering a number of possible changes to the blog about which I'd like readers' input, so I sent out a note today to Grits email subscribers asking them to fill out a short reader survey, and thought I'd post the request here as well:
