Blogging 201, Day Twelve: Give ‘Em What They Want, Part Two

Today’s assignment: create a poll and/or a survey to collect feedback from your readers on your site and its content.

A perfect and timely assignment since I have added a new menu item entitled Table Top Treasures.  Let me explain.  A number of my Weekly Photo Challenges have involved taking photos on our lovely glass table. Many of these have been well received and it seems the table is quite a hit.  I thought perhaps a separate page, or even perhaps a new blog site, devoted to the table top photos would be worth creating, and this seemed perfect for a poll or two.

The first poll asks for input on the page or blog title:

The second poll asks whether or not I should start a separate new title in the menu bar, or place the new page under Photography in the menu bar, or finally start a new blog completely, with perhaps its own Twitter page!!  So here’s the poll to help me decide:

I look forward to receiving your input, which will be greatly appreciated, as it always is.

Confessions of a Tulipolic

All right! I confess. I am a tulipolic.

Now I think this needs a little explanation. For the next two weeks I have joined the “Blogging University” at The Daily Post in a course entitled Blogging 201: Branding and Growth. Today we have been asked to audit our blogs, and one of the assignments is to add or update our taglines to give more context to our various titles. Now, since I don’t have a tagline and haven’t had one since I started blogging almost a year ago, this seemed to be the perfect time to finally put pen to paper and write one.

Nothing concentrates the mind more than to explain in one short sentence the “meaning of the life”, which leads me to today’s task.

For those of you who have been following my blog, and let me say I love you all, my use of the word Tulipolic will be very clear. If you are visiting for the first time I think the gallery of photos is all that is necessary together with a visit to my Monday Bouquet. The arts in the tagline of course refers to photography, painting, writing and anything else that inspires the creative spirit residing in all of us and which is forever changing.

So there you have it, a tagline together with an accompanying new header image and the completion of today’s assignment.  Do I hear a drum role?…
