Blogging 205: 5 Easy Steps to a Poll on Your Blog

As I was writing this post at the Ragan conference at SAS, I noticed a new orange button as part of the “Add media” toolbar.

So naturally I “moused over” to see what it was…

Cool!

So here is a series of screen shots as I went step-by-step through the five-step process.

1. Create a new PollDaddy account

2. Create a new poll

3. Enter the title and choices for your poll

4. Choose the Poll’s appearance

5. Send to Editor to Insert

Then you just publish your post as usual.

I subsequently saw that Scott Meis had done a nice post on this, and that the WordPress gang had posted an overview video.

This is one of the reasons I love WordPress.com; it continually has new features like this that are easy to use.

I expect to use PollDaddy for some SMUGgle surveys in the near future.
