Tips on creating a Persona Paper poll
So, I just created my first Persona Paper poll. Was it done correctly?
Hmmm, as always it was live and learn. I made a few goofs, and ended up deleting the first one. Still had one goof in the second one, but I won't mention it and maybe you won't notice! (You can check out the poll if you want ... it's called, "Should Persona Paper list most recent comments first?")
I'd give you the link ... but well, I've not even been here for a full day and I'm not sure of the rules about including links to our own articles. Maybe someone will be kind enough to let me know in a comment?
At any rate, here are the tips on creating a Persona Paper poll....
Put a title on for the poll.
Click the correct category.
Write a blurb about the poll; there's the 500 character mimimum rule to be followed. (See author's note, below.)
List voting option 1 in the "Current options" box on the bottom left. Hit return/enter. List your next option in the "Current options" box. Repeat.
Give more than just a yes or no, like or dislike option to vote on. Makes it more fun for readers.
Proof your poll. You can not edit a poll (at the time of writing this article, but Support is working on it), you can only delete it and rewrite.
Proof your poll again. Be sure to proof the voting options, not just your blurb.
How about you? Have you done a poll yet? Any tips for us?
(Author's note on mimumum characters for a poll: Ashley says, "While it doesn't have to be quite as much as a full article, still a decent amount." And SandraLynn says it needs to be 400 characters, minimum. DorothyLynn says, "Choose what you feel is the safest choice.")
