There’s a poll in the sidebar and, for those reading this post on the book site, you can reach it by clicking here.
It’s been there since the 2nd of January and, just like I wish more folks would comment on individual posts, I wish more folks would take the poll. It can be of great aid in deciding what our readership wants to see here. Multiple answers are accepted :-)
The results, so far, are:
Writing=41.2% ~ Reading and Publishing both=23.5% ~ Other=11.8%
There’s a little link at the bottom of the form to view the results…
Thing is, there have only been 17 votes so far. If I go with the leading result for Writing, at this point in time, I would be ignoring that there’s a sizable count for Other…
The average number of viewers of this blog is somewhere around 45/day.
Wonder what all those other people think? Did they stay around long enough to notice the link to the poll?
I could reason that the people who have voted so far are the ones who are reading the blog and take my cue from them on how to apportion the themes of my posts.
Still, with about four years experience in blogging, I know that there are always more people reading a blog than indicated by actions taken on the blog (polls or comments or links clicked). Of course, there are also always more visitors to a blog than there are people who read it.
This blog is personal to the extent that it fulfills my daily need to write. I fulfill my daily need to read by following the sites in our Blogroll. And, I’ll be fulfilling my need to publish, again, by releasing my book in May…
This blog is social to the extent that I endeavor to create posts of value and interest to my readers…
Did you take the poll yet?
Do you feel a need to tell me more about what you’d like to see here than a poll can capture?
Are you the kind of person who is shy about leaving comments?
Is anyone still reading this post?? :-)
