Technical Difficulties

We interrupt our regular posts due to technical difficulties. 

Is anyone having trouble voting on my latest post's, Simple Preferencesblog-poll? 

I switched to poll-maker as of the latest post, but every time I hit submit to view results it bombs. Is this happening to anyone else?

I was using freeblogpolls, but that is reading an error every time I attempt to set up a new poll. In the earlier days, I was using blogpoll, but that site seems to be now defunct. 

As regular visitors to this bog know, I use blogpolls at the end of my story posts. I rely on these polls to gauge what readers enjoy and or prefer. This is an important tool for me as so many people are shy about commenting. Not that I get a huge participation on the polls, but every bit helps.

Long story short, I need a recommendation on a blog poll that works. I am having trouble with the online poll feature of this blog and in need of assistance. Anyone have any recommendations based on actual use?

I'll make you an offer; anyone who has useful advice can ask me anything in return. If your information helps, I will answer your inquiry.

Thanks in advance, otherwise I am back to being on hold with technical support. 
- You know customer service isn't what it used to be; especially since so many tech support reps have been allowed to work from home. If I ever get a hold of an actual person; I will take that nerdy girl's...I mean professional 'technical support rep'... to task!

Hi Enzo,

The folks at the Blogger Help Forum recommend It works very well. You need to create a WordPress account (email logon and password) but it works just fine with Blogger.

Hi Hermione -

Thanks for the information and recommendation. I am trying out 99polls for now, but will look into Polldaddy.

Thanks again so much for your time!

Much appreciated,
