Let’s say you land on a blog you haven’t visited before (or maybe even one you don’t visit often). You read the entry, and enjoy it. Do you look for something else interesting on the site? Where?

The options here certainly aren’t exhaustive, but given all of them, which would you click first? Perhaps we can use these survey results to help us order our sidebar based on the most popular items.
