    Vizu is a means to add polls to your blog or your blog posts. To do that you need to register first on this url http://www.vizu.com/registration.html
    After registration you can create as many polls as you want over there. Then you can add the code to your blog post. The process is almost similar to the one you mentioned in this post, but then Vizu has probably more to offer in terms of tracking and formatting.
