TOCWOC Poll Results: What Type of Blog Entry Do You Enjoy Reading?

by Brett Schulte on March 13, 2009 · 0 comments

As many of you have already noticed, I removed the recent poll asking what type of blog entries you enjoy from the left sidebar and replaced it with a new Age Poll.  It’s time now to look at the results of the blog entry poll.  First, let’s take a look at the final results:

What Type of Post(s) Do You Enjoy Reading? (Multiple Answers Allowed)

As I expected, wargaming brought up the rear.  Most people reading TOCWOC – A Civil War Blog are probably Civil War buffs, but most are probably NOT wargamers.  For this reason, I will not be posting as many wargaming entries as I might have in the past.  However, I will continue to keep TOCWOC readers updated about the latest Civil War computer, board, and miniature games out there.

It was in the other entries where I was a bit surprised.  They all finished nearly equal.  Perhaps this was a result of my decision to allow readers to choose as many poll entries as they wanted.  In the future, I may rerun this poll with a twist by asking what your favorite blog entry type is and allowing only one entry.  I suspect this will cause a bit of separation and better get to the answers I was looking for.

After only a short time I’m beginning to see the possibilities are endless when dealing with polls.  I can see they will be a very useful tool for me and I hope to continue to use them to shape which direction this blog goes in the future.  Thanks for participating!
