As you know, we are mere days away from having our first monthly vote for Would You Read It to see which of our intrepid participants will win a pitch read from editor Erin Molta!!! So exciting I can barely articulate... and you are probably having trouble reading... and maybe even breathing...!
I thought it would behoove me (by which I mean I thought it would be a good idea, not that I'm planning on sprouting hooves) to figure out how to do a poll.
I found a rather circuitous but ultimately (hopefully) useful set of instructions by googling "how do you add a poll to a blog post" (isn't it wonderful what you can find at the touch of a button?) Of course, the instructions weren't exactly right, so I would never have figured it out without my tech savvy children... but all's well that ends well, right?
So. In the spirit of getting things in working order (and making me practice how to do this!) before the crucial moment, let's try out some polls!
Are you game?
Okay! Here we go! There is nothing even remotely biased about these questions either.
Who is your favorite chldren's author?
What is your favorite picture book?
Who is your favorite children's book character?
What is your favorite color?
Please vote, everyone, so I can figure out if it works! I may still want to try poll daddy. Then we'll be ready for the big Would You Read It vote sometime after this week's post, coming Wednesday from Laynie, our second MG entrant!
Also, on another note - for those of you who have been asking about following by email/getting post notification by email, my awesome wonderfully talented works-even-on-Sunday designer, Donna Farrell, has created a place for you to enter your email address and do that. It's right there in the right hand column near the followers area. Thank you, Donna, and thanks to you interested folks who want to know the minute a new post is up :)
P.S. I think I can already tell I don't like this polling method. Is it just me, or once there's a vote up is everyone seeing the vote status? Do you consider that a good thing or would it be better if you didn't know how the vote was going?
