I am experiencing temporary poll brain freeze as a result of drastically reduced caloric intake. Over the course of the past two years since I have introduced the poll feature, I have asked 36 poll questions and received between 200 and 1,100 responses to each poll question. On average, the number of responses has been about 600 “votes” over the past few months. Since best I can figure, there are roughly 8,000-10,000 regular Marketmanila readers who visit the site at least 1x a week, and a core of roughly 2,500 readers who visit at least 1x a day, then only 8-10% of all “regular” readers have ever answered a poll question. That is, however, more than double the paltry rate of 4-5% who have ever left a comment on this blog. Increasingly, I run into people who are incredibly knowledgeable about some of my recent escapades and it turns out they are avid readers and total lurkers. Hmmm, maybe I should restrict certain posts (the really good ones) to folks who have participated in the comments section in the past… :) Better eat more breakfast before I get downright ornery, Marketman. At any rate, what is the point of this post? I am curious what YOU, the readers, would ask Marketmanila’s audience if you could formulate a poll question? If you have any bright ideas for a poll question, please leave a comment here. And if you don’t find the poll feature useful or interesting, let me know as well, maybe I can just take it off completely… Thank you!
