6KCBWDAY6: Polls Apart

Day Six (Saturday 16th May): Polls Apart.
Almost every blogging platform offers a way to easily put together and host a poll, and polls, surveys and questionnaires can be a great way of engaging with your audience and readership. There are times when readers do not feel that they want or have time to think, compose and post an answer or response to a post, but short polls can often be completed with just a few clicks.

Importantly, survey findings and poll results can give bloggers an absolutely wonderful source of information to blog about. Whether you are looking at basic statistics of the percentage of knitters, crocheters and those who enjoy both or the results of a more opinion-led set of questions, you will be gathering a greater understanding of your readers and may find out some surprising results.

Think of a knitting or crochet related question (it can be literally anything from favourite yarn weight or colour to which month readers believe they complete most projects) and host a simple survey. Hopefully once Knitting And Crochet Blog Week is over this year you’ll have that information as inspiration for yet another blog post when you are ready to write about your findings.

TIP: If you are stuck trying to embed or host a survey, Survey Monkey are a well-known and respected host of free survey and poll tools, and very easy to use.

    I love knitting socks but I haven’t been in the mood for a while. I’m in a cardigan phase right now.

    Even though I’ve only knit a few pairs I really like knitting socks!
