Tripetto is a free WordPress plugin to create interactive forms and surveys. It allows you to visually create embeddable forms right in WordPress and gives you shortcode to add those forms in your posts. It records responses of those forms and surveys on the dashboard and you can export them to CSV as well. The free version of the plugin is for personal use only so, if you have a personal blog for you then you can use that. The form builder of the tool is very nice and you can customize a lot of parameters such as background color, input type, and much more.

It creates a separate section in WordPress sidebar where you can see all the forms you have created so far. And for each form, you can see the recorded responses. Later you can either download responses in CSV or you can export them to Zapier but that is not included in the free plan.
