I love choices, so long as they are unimportant. Ask me to choose a new house, new furniture or the winner of the X-Factor and I pick the first one I see, to avoid meltdown. Better yet, I get the Hub to choose: if it all goes wrong, it’s his fault. What you call a win-win situation.
But ask me to participate in a survey or poll, and I’m your man. I never met a doorstep pollster I didn’t invite into my home. I helped redefine the Open University’s website during the 2000s, by my simple yeas or nays to their proffered options. I love knowing that I’m one of the eight out of ten owners who said their cats preferred it.
Imagine my ecstasy, then, when I discovered WordPress had a poll feature. I brought you polls on what I should call my first-born; which Friend you are; what theme I should use; what I should post; when I should post; if should I post polls at all…you said ‘no’ to that last one, so I stopped canvassing your opinion and sulked a bit.
Today, because it’s spring, because I have nothing to write about, and because I really do value your opinion, I bring you a new poll. Ignore it if you want, but remember: you provided the answers in the first place; and if you want to be one of the eight out of ten bloggers who said their readers preferred it, you need to say so.
