Informal Poll

I’ve been thinking of starting a new weekly post for my blog. A little like Thursday is always for etymology, Saturday will have its own theme. Except it probably won’t be every week. Maybe every other. Ish. We’ll have to see what I can come up with.

As the title of this post clearly says, plus the big new gadget you scrolled down to read this, but maybe you skipped over them or your aggregator doesn’t do titles or something, which I guess is possible although unlikely since it seems weird to not look at a title, but that’s just me and maybe you feel differently, and at this point I’m just trying to see how long I can get this sentence to be, although I bet it’s still not a record breaker, I’m going to start doing informal polls. The basic idea is that I will have a question every other week or so, talk about the topic for a bit, then open the floor to responses from you guys, and then I’ll post the final tallies before the next informal poll. I’m not quite sure what ideas I’ll come up with, but you can expect something appropriately insane.

So to start things off appropriately, what do you think of the idea of informal polls? Please scroll up to answer : ).

Oh, and it had ninety three words.

EDIT: You know what would have really helped? If the poll actually went up when it was supposed to instead of just not working. Thanks for the embarrassment, Blogger.

By the way, I was being sarcastic.


  1. You should add a click-to-tweet option so we can share the polls to get more replies. :)

  2. I don't remember the book or the author, right off hand, but there is some book with one sentence that goes on for more than a page.
    I'm ambivalent about polls.

  3. I think I heard of the sentence Andrew is talking about. Didn't it go on for a whole chapter?

    You'll think of things to poll about. I keep wondering when I'm going to run out of Thursday what ifs, but they keep coming to me. (I just thought up three new ones. Hooray!)

  4. I like polls!
    And second what Melissa said.
