Online Poll Results on the Blog Title Inconclusive Relative to Visitor Statistics

The polling on the name of the blog closed yesterday.  Out of 105 unique people who visited between Feb 28 and Mar 15 (the polling period) eight of them voted in the poll giving a response rate of 7.6%.  Four of them said the name of the blog should be changed because it was too hard to understand and four said it's fine the way it is, a 50-50 split.  I did not vote in the poll.  Google Analytics gives a lot more detailed information about viewers habits which tells me a lot more about the level of engagement in the blog (the report is below).  While it could always use more visitors (there's lots of competition out there), I am satisfied with the level of engagement with that I have.  The name of the blog stays the same.  I pursued an ad campaign on Facebook for the page for the blog because I received a $50 coupon for one and received about 120 new fans.  Maybe that will get more visitors.  This is the 148th post.  Some friends suggested I should change the name of the blog.  


I was tempted to post a video of a debate on content in standup comedy between Eddie Murphy, Bill Cosby and Richard Pryor from the movie Raw.  It's too profane to be embedded here however it can be viewed here but be forewarned it is profane.  I don't normally use profanity on this site but the clip does make a point about letting audiences determine content.  Cosby, Murphy, and Pryor all did well in their own way and they've had their lows too.  The important thing is to chart your own path while keeping a finger on the pulse of the audience.
