Rod Blagojevich

Rod Blagojevich

He’s the governor who won’t go away, despite allegations he tried to sell the Senate seat vacated by President-Elect Obama.

Gov. Rod Blagojevich of Illinois is the subject of the debut poll on RateMyVanity.com. So, if you’ve been following the Blagojevich saga and have a few minutes, visit the site and cast your vote. You’ll be asked to select a choice that best describes your perception of the governor’s vanity.

We don’t anticipate heavy traffic in these early days. But we plan to build the site over time and make it a daily stopping point for people who enjoy following the news. The site was inspired by the Bernard Madoff Ponzi case.

We’ll be adding additional content today. As it stands, some dummy posts still are in place. We’ve been testing systems and tweaking things. More tweaking will follow. Dummy content will be removed as fresh content fills in the holes. We left the dummy content in place for now so readers can get a better feel for the site.

RateMyVanity.com mostly will cover newsmakers from the worlds of politics, media, entertainment and sports. We’ll mix in other stories and polls from time to time. The idea is to get a sense of how the public views the vanity of people in the news.

We have two separate designs for the site and will be switching back and forth in the early days, based on what readers ultimately prefer. The articles will be short, with a hint of an “attitude.”

Readers can leave comments. Some polls will have a feature than permits users to enter their own assessment of the newsmakers’ vanity, if they aren’t satisfied with the choices we provide.

The site is using WordPress 2.7, the latest version. We’ve had to do some tweaking and anticipate some additional tweaks. Our plan is to provide lots of fresh content, based on what Americans are talking about.
