Readership Survey - Poll 9

It’s that time of year again, when I try and figure out how many of you there are and where you come from. I’ve become somewhat stat-obsessed and have 4 different visitor counters on this blog and naturally they all disagree with each other, but they do paint the same overall picture. About 55% of visitors are from the good ole USA, 10% from the UK, 5% from Canada, 3% from Australia and then the first of the non-English speaking countries – Germany clocks in at 2% and Japan at a little less. But that’s visitors, and I’m interested in regular readers.

So, if you self describe as a regular reader, then I’d appreciate you participating in the poll over in the sidebar. As you can see there are two poll gadgets there. The first is country specific, so if you are from one of those top visitor log countries then please vote by country in the first poll. If though you are like me and don’t live in one of those countries then please vote by area in the second poll.

Obviously I would appreciate it if you kept to the traditional democratic concept of “one person, one vote” rather than some sort of “vote early, vote often” system.

Thanks for participating.

A small apology from me. Some of the text colours in the Poll gadget make some results hard to read. There is no option to change the text colours, and my enquires in Blogger Help Forum reveal it is either very difficult or effectively impossible to change them even by altering blog template coding, etc.

A tip for those wanting to view the voting results. When you click on Show Results, if, like me, you cannot then read the percentages because the stupid text colour is extra light grey on white, in IE and Firefox you can go to Edit in the toolbar and then Select All and the screen will be highlighted, making the result percentages, etc easy to read.

Well, my text is white on blue background. No problems - I use IE. Nice idea this poll BTW - the other gadgets doesn't cover "regular readers".
