When I talk to people about starting a blog, one of the most frequent questions I hear is, “Can I do surveys on my blog and show the results?” In other words, Can I take a poll?
True to form, and their dream of making blogging easy and accessible to everyone, Matt Mullenweg and the team at Automattic have just integrated survey / polling capability into WordPress – at the click of a button. It’s now so easy to create a poll on a WordPress.com site, you hardly need a tutorial!
You can display the results of your poll – or not – as you like. The poll creation and admin user interface absolutely rocks. And there are a bunch of cool display designs to choose from.
Here’s my very first poll on Business Blogging 101 – created in about 2 minutes!
To get started making your own surveys and polls, see the introduction to poll creation using PollDaddy and WordPress.
