They chose financial independence over home ownership.

This is somewhat extreme but watch how this Canadian couple chose financial independence over home ownership.  They are in their 30s and,...

Blog's readership profile.

Thursday, April 15, 2010

You might have noticed the big blue box on the right side of my blog.  In case you think it's an advertisement, it's not.  I am collecting information on my blog's readership profile.  From the latest figures, my blog receives, on average, 500 unique visitors a day but so far only 23 visitors have taken the poll since it started.  :-(

Please take a few seconds to answer three simple questions in my poll if you have not done so already. Thank you very much.  :-)

Hi AK, I'm not seeing the blue box - I'm using Firefox on a Mac, maybe it's broken in certain web browsers?

Hi Chu Yeow,

You don't see the polling box?

I'm using IE8 on a Sony Vaio to manage my blog. When I use other versions of IE, things looks different. So, I guess it doesn't work on Firefox and Macs then. :(

cant see it on Chrome too

Hi Anonymous,

Thanks for the feedback. I guess I can only poll readers who are using IE.

I checked my stats and most visitors to this blog are using IE7 (38.6%), followed by Firefox 3.6 (19%) and IE8 (18.6%). Chrome 4.0 is a distant 4th (5%).

I guess if 50% of all my readers respond to the poll, I should be happy, since that would mean a sample size of about 250 people. :)

Hi AK,
I'm using a Mac with Safari to surf, can see the box clearly. Did the questionnaire awhile ago.

If you don't my asking, what are you trying to gather from the info btw?

Hi AK71,

It does work on both Firefox as well as Safari on Mac. I've done your survey on my Mac. :)

Hi K and TS,

Thanks for taking part in the poll! :)
I guess maybe it has to do with the version of Firefox being used? Well, I'm not an IT guy. I'm happy as long as it works! :)

This is a poll by Nuffnang to profile my readers so as to better match advertisers to my blog. I guess if my blog has more male readers, advertisers who are targetting guys would be more interested in advertising here, for example.

Chu Yeow said...

Ah I just realized it's probably my ad blocker Firefox extension that's hiding the Nuffnang poll because it thinks it's an ad. I've just responded to the poll in Safari :)

Hi Chu Yeow,

Thanks! You have an ad blocker? Wah, I can never make any money from you then. ;)

Chu Yeow said...

Haha I only installed it awhile back because of some irritating Flash ads that were either making my laptop's fan spin harder or were making really obnoxious noises. There were also some ads that broke pages (usually ads in some Facebook apps). Anyway, I believe in the ad system as a way to "give back" to people with good content like yours and actually am happy to support if the ads are not super intrusive. If not for a few black sheep I'd gladly turn my ad blocker off.

Hi Chu Yeow,

Unfortunately, there will always be black sheep in any space. I mean, we have them in nursery rhymes as well. Hehe... sorry, I couldn't resist it. ;-p

Thanks for thinking my blog has good content and I hope you are making some good money in the stock market. :)
