Thank you all for voting in last week’s poll. I hope y’all know that these polls are for educational purposes – for me. I find it really helpful to ask you questions and bounce ideas off of you. So thank you so much for participating in these weekly polls.

You may have noticed that I put a link to the weekly poll at the top of my sidebar. That is so that not a single one of you will miss helping me out with my questions.

Last Week’s Results

Last week I asked you “How often do you get out of the house in the winter?” Your answers ranged from every day to other (*smile*) 1 day per week. Some of you live in warm climates as well, making your circumstances a bit different than us northerners. We played in the snow yesterday, but didn’t leave the driveway.

  • Every day – I work outside of the home. 31% (8 votes)

This Week’s Questions

This week I have two questions for you, both about blogging.

My first question is about blog readers (like bloglines, etc.) Just before I moved from blogger to wordpress I discovered blogger’s “following” concept. So I plugged in all of the lovely blogs that I keep up with and found a much simpler blog reading experience. Before that I had tried out bloglines but didn’t seem to like it, so just stuck with keeping bookmarks and checking them everyday or whenever I had time. That took up a lot more time. I find it so much more streamlined now that I am told when someone updates. Using a blog reader saves me lots of time, which is what I need.

For a while I was considering moving my blog back to blogger. Now that I’ve gotten used to the wordpress interface, however, I really like it and think I will stay. So… I have a wordpress blog, but read blogs in blogger. I am looking for something else, something better perhaps (though I do love the setup of blogger’s following). So, dear readers, please tell me how you read your blogs. I just put out a few things I have heard of into the multiple choice answers. Please share something else if it is out there.

My second question pertains to this blog in particular. I like elements of my blog’s theme, but not all of them. I was looking over my blog on our laptop and thought to myself “This is obnoxiously difficult to read.” Then when I was at the library I went to my blog again. On their fancy big computer screens I didn’t find it nearly as difficult to read. So, be honest, dear readers. (And I am talking aesthetics here, I suppose if you find the content obnoxious we can discuss that another day).

    I’m not sure what bloglines are. I have that feature on my blog that tells me when a blog has been updated on my page. Also, when I find a new blog that I think I would like to keep reading – I bookmark it. I leave it there for a week or so before I had it to my “list”. By the way, I will be adding yours to my list today because I enjoy reading your blog : )

    I put a bunch of blogs into bloglines (I think it was that one) but never got the hang of it, so I just check by clicking on blogs I’ve added to my favorites, usually at least morning and evening except on really crazy days.

    And I don’t find your blog hard to read. In fact, it is nicely uncluttered compared to many. I really hate all the advertising on some.

    If you didn’t like old bloglines, try the “new” version: http://www.beta.bloglines.com; there are a lot of better features that make it easier.

    I’m a totally new reader, today, in fact this is the first post I read through bloglines, so you may want to disregard me completely [grin]
