Want to know which posts your readers find valuable?

Thanks to Tom Ewer and his post on the blog wpmu.org The WordPress Experts for alerting me to  a new plugin for WordPress that helps bloggers discover what their readers really think about blog posts.

Numbers of visitors or comments can be misleading and easily biased by external factors as Tom explains so well in his post.

This new plugin Moodthingy gives visitors an opportunity to rate each post just by clicking on a voting panel in a box at the bottom of each blog post. Votes can be cast for each of a range of 6 moods from Bored to Amused, Angry to Fascinated.

The dashboard on the Moodthingy site  provides statistics to show the popularity of each post.

So this is just a short post to test how it works, go ahead and vote on the panel at the bottom of this post.

Try the plug in, it’s free.

Wishing you success in all your endeavours.

    I need an interested… so what do I pick?

      That is the one drawback with this plugin, it has a strange selection of choices and they cannot be changed. I hope that if the developers see enough moans about it, they will either provide a better selection or make them configurable by users.

      Until then, I will be quite happy if you use “fascinated’ or “excited”
