There is a new Poll, at the top of my blog right under the Header photo. Non-scientific, some might say nonsensical, but I'm hoping you'll find it fun to take part.
This one asks about what, why and how you blog rather than what you like or dislike on the blogs of others.Here are the results from the first, informal poll about what we like to see on the blogs of others:
90% preferred to see photos belonging to the blogger; nobody wanted to see pictures ‘borrowed’ from the internet.
85% would like to see pictures with captions.
Only 19% indicated that they liked mostly text with few pics and 23% liked photos alone, no text.
No one wanted to see items for sale.
Only 14 percent wanted to see pics of pets in the garden – sorry, sometimes Buffy and Ike just will sneak in there.
Humor was chosen by 66%. 19% liked pedantic posts with simple how-tos.
Almost half like Macros; about a quarter like TraveloguesLinks to blogs of others was chosen by 66%
This was a very small poll with only 21 respondents, hardly a scientific poll.
If you didn't see the poll before it closed, it is now over at the very bottom of my sidebar.
Feel free to discuss it here in comments.
