Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

The gray weather of the past few days has seemed to take a bite out of everyone's energy level (except apparently for Max Scherzer), and with October now not offering the lure of playoff excitement in the neighborhood, I found myself wanting to come up with some content that might inject a bit of a spark around these parts.
I last ran a poll in 2011, but while there are some similar questions, the neighborhood is a very different place from just four years ago--so I figured why not find out a little more about favorite haunts and activities while at the same time getting some sense of who exactly JDLand's readers are.
I often say that blogging can very much feel like whistling into the wind, or talking into a phone when you aren't 100 percent sure someone's on the other end of the line, so it really does help me to know who is out there--are you a bunch of millennials Bikesharing over to Sweetgreen for some healthy eats, or a bunch of commercial real estate workers lunching on the information I post, or a bunch of Nats fans who only visit the site during baseball season? (All that and more, I imagine.)
I also decided to use this poll to finally answer the question that has nagged at me for years--is it in fact true that every Near Southeast resident owns a dog?
And if just taking a couple minutes of your time to help me out isn't enough motivation, I'm going to give away JDLand t-shirts to two random poll respondents. That right there should really do the trick.
I'll leave it up for a few weeks, then crunch the numbers and post the results.
But don't wait until the last minute! Go ahead and fill it out right now. Pretty please. With sugar on top. (And no ballot-box stuffing!)
If you run into any errors, let me know.

I need to do polls more often. Already the results are fascinating.

what's something interesting?


JD says: (10/5/15 10:24 AM)
I don't want to tip the scales and say something that would then bring a swell of votes to counteract, but the food/drink votes are the ones I'm finding the most enlightening.



JD says: (10/5/15 10:55 AM)
Also, I'm being reminded that people actually read this site. Something that sometimes I never quite believe.

(But I'm bummed that I forgot to include the comments as a choice for the question about which site content is of most interest)

Oooh, comments would've been a good addition for sure.

The food/drink results could change even in the next six to eight months too after the recently opened and to-be-opened spots get established. For instance, I've been to both Scarlett Oak and Due South once and like both. However, I'd need to try them both again at least once before considering them as my go-to lunch, dinner or drink spot.

I already filled out the survey, but wanted to chime in that I am one of the very few residents who does not have a dog (we're cat people). Over half of the units in my building have a dog, though...

I need to get a gif for the JDLand Gold Star, and bestow it upon you!

Cats were in the early lead, but I guess that's just because cat people were quicker to fill out the survey (perhaps because of all the free time that comes from not having to take the kitteh for a walk!).
