The Results Are In!

I think actually they were in a little while back, but I'm only just now getting round to sharing them! Ages and ages ago (well, a couple of weeks ago at least...) I posted a poll and asked what creative techniques you enjoyed. I thought you might like to see how people answered :-)


(It's only as I look at it now that I realise I could totally have added cooking to the list!)

Thanks so much to those who responded - I'm thrilled that so many people did :-) And being a geeky mathematician type, those numbers and percentages (yes, even the decimals) make me feel happy..... Sorry, but they do!

Oh, and the 'Other' category included cross stitch, mixed media, quilting and digi art - thank you to Gail, Cheri and Helena for leaving the explanatory comments :-)

I have no idea what I might actually do with this information now lol but I'm thrilled to have it!! All those lovely numbers...... So thanks again folks for playing along! xx

Very interesting. It's surprising to me that scrapbooking is at the top of the list as it seems like it's something that fewer and fewer people engage in. But I'm happy to read that!

Ooh, those are fun results indeed Mel (sorry I didn't take part, but I guess I was in Orlando at the time!). Even though I am pants at Maths, I'm finding Google Analytics to be extremely fun and rather addictive!

Funny Mel - the percentages really bugged me because it doesn't take into account that one person could have checked multiple categories. On my poll, I had 38 votes for blogging to share creative endeavors, calculated as 32% of the total votes. But if you did it by number of people who voted, I think nearly 100% chose that answer. I really would have preferred percentages be based on the number of unique voters.

I think scrapbooking has come in first on most of our polls, but it seems we all enjoy some variety in a blog. So fun!

Have to agree with Cheri there Mel ... if we could choose more that one option that counts as one vote split rather than two votes ... statitics is a bu88er isn't it!

Wow! You had a huge amount of people responding to your poll Mel:)I was quite chuffed with 24!
I must admit I do find the statistics a bit confusing, but maths was never my strong point!!

That was me, I don't know why I became anonymous!

Oh, I missed that! Never mind, it's fun to look at the results :)

Have you heard of Florence Nightingale's rose graph? It's how she graphed up the causes of deaths during the Crimean War and is really eye catching.
It was on TV not long ago - it's a bit like a pie chart, in that each sector's area is proportional to the number of votes, but each sector has the same number of degrees, so the graph's not a circle. Your graph above would come out as a spiral shape.
I've got some scrapping maths to do soon and want to work out how to plot one. If you're interested Mel, send me a mail - could look good on a LO.

Yes, I'm surprised that scrapbooking is still so far ahead - that's what I found in my poll too. I honestly thought more people were moving into sewing and knitting. Just shows you - you don't know until you ask!

I suppose scrapping & photos are no big surprise but I like seeing what other hobbies people have.
