Polling

Posted 27 June 2007

I'm trying out Blogger Draft's new polling module. The current poll is "Which do you associate with me more?", and will hopefully illuminate which catchphrase people most associate with me. Stop on by and cast your vote!

Polling in blog software has never particularly appealed to me, primarily because it doesn't seem that people usually participate. Plus, the polls I have seen aren't very compelling, and invariably the answers are irrelevant. For instance: "Heroes: A great show? Or the greatest show?". This would then be followed by unrelated options, such as

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. I don't like television
  4. Post more often instead of wasting time creating polls!

Will I discover that I enjoy posting polls? Will I delude myself into thinking that mine will be witty and clever? Find out (and vote) next week when I solicit your opinion!
