Because This is How I Poll

April 25, 2011 Posted by Tyler Cruz


And now for something completely different…

Back in 2009 I added a couple of poll-specific posts to my blog for you guys to fill out. Each poll on the 2nd poll post received an average of around 170 results, which is actually a lot when you consider that they’re from a pretty targeted group .

As I mentioned in my original posts, polls are a fantastic way to gain a quick summary of what your visitors want in the form of numerical data.

In addition, while polling visitors can help me personally make decisions and find out information, when visitors can see what the current vote results are, I think they also in turn provide interesting content to the reader.

Therefore, here are 10 new poll questions for you guys. They vary in topic and theme, but in general are focused on making money online. Some of them are also not useful to me in the form of data, but are simply there to satisfy my curiosity.

Once you vote on each poll question, you can see the current results as well – you don’t have to wait for me to post the results 🙂

Also, a note to anyone reading this via e-mail or RSS reader: You’ll need to actually visit this post in your browser to fill out and see the poll questions.

Do you primarily use a Mac or PC?

  1. Love the title Tyler, and I do poll.

  2. Tyler Cruz says:

    Damn, you guys are ballers for going on so many vacations…

    Using a Mac is in with the new? Funny, since I think Apple was around long before the PC. I don’t use a Mac strictly becuase just l8ke Church and State, I like to keep religion separate from computing/web work. My PC runs an OS not a religion … and Apples, especially overseas are massively overpriced.

    Your ‘vacations’ are skewed by at least mine … I am always on vacation, that’s what’s great about earning online. If you define vacation by something like ‘how often do you go on a trip, especially overseas’, then it would average every 9 months or so counting foreign and domestic travel.

  4. […] as I remembered seeing a post by Tyler Cruz which he actually just posted today entitled “Because This Is How I Poll” where, he is asking his readers to answer 10 polls so he can provide better content! Now as […]

    You should add a “subscribe to comments” plugin so it is easier for users to know if there are responses to comments (so we don’t have to manually check posts where we left comments).

  6. Sunfrog says:

    I don’t think you bought any of those websites.

  7. Tyler,

    I do want to check your comments for replies but I forget. It might be a good idea to install a “Subscribe to Comments from this post” plugin.

    That way we can get emails when there is a reply to our post and we can respond.


  8. Great poll! I need to add polls to my blog. Good idea 🙂

  9. Awesome poll, voted! Can’t wait to hear what site you recently bought.

  10. I voted but I dont think you bought any of these sites as isn’t a ‘make money’ niche site.

  11. Ramon says:

    Nice one Tyler 🙂

  12. Bradley says:

    Music is pretty much the only thing that makes me not bored and able to work well.

  13. Jasmine says:

    Great polls. I should also add some polls to my site, will you be coming over to take part?

  14. Nice I am on the level with most all of the polls. I like how you can just scroll down and take all the polls at once and see the results while going through it all.

  15. I voted on mostly all of them. Even though I’ve used a Mac, I didn’t see what the big deal was. Any modern Win7 or Win XP PC will do just as good! As for vacation, I usually take a couple of mini vacations a year rather a long, drawn out one.

  16. used tires says:

    So I answered most of the questions on the poll! Nice to see 100+ already voted


  17. Jasmine says:

    Good polls. I have cast my votes on some of the questions already! 🙂

  18. Yes, I have made some extra votes, this poll rocks, lots of interesting questions. I think you should travel more tyler. 🙂

  19. Interesting poll and some of the results are unexpected like 22% necer goes for vacation 🙁

  20. Yes, Polling is a great way to get the opinions of the visitors or readers of our blogs.

  21. I had just noted on all polls. I was suprised to see that most of the people go on vacation more than once a year and that most of the people who voted don’t even use twitter!
