Free Easy WordPress Tutorials: Vote For a WordPress Tutorial Topic

Free WordPress Tutorials: Business Blogging 101 is getting more visitors than ever. WordPress 3.0 is out and flourishing (because it ROCKS). The new default WordPress theme, Twenty Ten, is more WordPressy AWESOMENESS. There has even been a recent resolution to an ongoing disagreement about the General Public License and Thesis WordPress theme.

With all this going on, I feel a need to create some more easy WordPress Tutorials that will add to the growing list and help more people discover and learn to use WordPress.

Use the Poll above to vote or nominate your own WordPress tutorial topic. I haven’t tried this kind of WordPress/Polldaddy pollĀ  before, but I’ll add your suggestions if several people list the same one or something similar.

Feel free to include your own ideas for WordPress tutorials in more detail using the comment form.

UPDATE: Votes for the next easy WordPress Tutorial topic are already coming in. Thanks, everyone!
I need more votes, so tell a friend!

I’m using a PollDaddy poll, which is really easy to do on There’s also a PollDaddy plugin you can use to create polls and surveys on a self-hosted WordPress site. My poll has an option for “Other” so you can write in your own topic if none of my suggestions sounds good. Here’s how the poll results look when you view them in the WordPress Dashboard. Pretty darn cool!

Make a Survey or Poll in WordPress – Now It’s Easy!

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 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.
