Creating custom quizzes, polls and surveys for a blog... your experiences?

I want to start putting more fun, interactive, and educational features on HiddenLA.com. I just tried putting a poll on there using the WP-polls plugin but I'm not sure I'm digging it so far. Is there a better application or plug-in that you use?

I would also like to do some really interesting quizzes, but so far I haven't found an application that is really great with customizing details. I started a few but was disappointed with the how results looked and never finished them.

I'd love to hear any suggestions you have. Thanks! :)

My girlfriend recently used surveymonkey to do market research for a business she was setting up. I helped make the survey and it seemed pretty straightforward to use- not sure how customizable it is though, as we just stuck with the default look.

Zoomerang. They want you to buy, but their free version is working well for my needs.

Cool, thanks!

What about for quizzes? I'd like them to be nicer looking than something you'd see on Facebook...

My Studiyo

I found this on a previous Ask and I used it to create a birthday quiz for my boyfriend this year. Nicely customizable with pictures, logos, and video if you wish to utilize it. Also free, and embeddable.

I tried it, but when I put formatting in and then I wanted to change a word, all the formatting was gone and I had to do it all over. I think I need to just make my quizzes simpler, maybe. I get all designy with 'em. 'Cuz that's my nature.
