In the analysis of the last poll that I conducted, How Many MMOs Have You Played? one of the conclusions I came to was that a lot of MMO players never actually visit gaming blogs or fansites because they are actually too busy playing the game.
My good friend, DM Osbon had a different take on the results:
One thing you must remember is that MMO players that are not currently playing an MMO probably make up a good percentage of the readership of blogs & MMO sites.
DM suggested that I put up a poll to test this theory. I did have another topic in mind for this months poll, but his suggestion was a good one, and definitely more interesting. Here’s the poll:
If you are currently playing a MMO, how many gaming blogs and websites do you read?
Conversely, if you’re not currently playing a MMO, how many gaming blogs and websites do you read?
I’ve also included a couple of questions for the folks who blog about MMOs. I expect that if you’re a blogger you probably read a decent number of related blogs and websites so I didn’t break down the questions as much for this group.
If you have any ideas on the poll subject, or have a response that isn’t in the questions, feel free to leave a comment.
I’d also like to invite you to submit any ideas you might have for future polls, or even blog posts. I’m also happy to answer any questions you might have. You can use the contact form to send in any ideas or questions.
