After introducing a new feature to my blog a couple weeks ago, I have been remiss at adding a new poll. The first poll didn’t quite work out as planned as the poll service I was using, BlogPolls.com, had a hiccup and I had to remove it because it causing the page to not load.
Anyways, I wish I could look at the results of the first poll, but because of their hiccup, my account was lost along with all the results. The last time I was able to check the results, “Technical Shirt” had a big lead over the rest of the options for, “What is your favorite race schwag?”
I’ve mentioned before that I do like a good technical shirt, but I have a had a horrible time sizing technical shirts as they all seem to be different. Half the time I am a medium and half the time I am a large. I’ve gotten hosed too many times with a shirt that is way too big or way too small which is very frustrating. Lately, though I’ve had better luck. My secret – always pre-order a medium when registering. If it is too small, they will generally have larges left over but not vise versa.
Anyways, for the second Survey Saturday, I have found a new way to capture poll data using a WordPress plugin (available here for any WordPress users). This way, the service is completely hosted on my end and I don’t have to worry about a 3rd party service.
Without further adieu, I introduce this week’s current poll. It will be available below and in the sidebar to the right.
