Elizabeth told me a rather long story yesterday about which children of her acquaintance had birthdays in what month, and then Angela mentioned on Twitter that birthdays in her office were heavily weighted toward certain months, and that got me curious about whether certain birth months are more heavily weighted over the entire population. I could look it up, but then I realized I'm mostly interested in OUR population. And it was fun doing that "Guess what number I'm thinking of" poll awhile back.
So let's have a poll for "What month were you born?," to see if we're evenly distributed around here or not. The poll will be in the righthand margin. As I understand it, those of you reading on mobile devices can't see it, is that right? Is that why some people put their poll votes in the comments section instead of in the poll? I poked around but don't see any way to fix that issue, other than "Go home and take the poll on your computer." (If anyone else has solved it, let me know and I'll see if I can solve it the same way.) [Poll closed; see results below.]
[Edit: Ah ha! Jessica's comment sounds like exactly what I need! Let's try THAT: now the poll MAY OR MAY NOT be in the post itself!] [Edit again: No. I see it in html, but not in the post. Continuing to work on it.] [Nope, still not working. I've read half a dozen posts describing how to do it, but all of them describe an iframe situation I don't see in my own html. In the meantime, several commenters have mentioned that if they scroll down, they can click on "view web version" and see the poll that way.]
