I Blog Slowly

I publish each post dozens of times - that's why I like blogging. I'm still working on my most previous blog, Another Day Of Anguish.

My current project, The Real Blogger Status / WordPress Edition, is just a stub right now. I just started it, and as any new blog, the Wordpress blog starter puts in a welcome comment. So this morning, I went to remove the comment - cleanup the stub, and get ready to mirror it from The Real Blogger Status / Blogspot Edition. And imagine my surprise when I found a real comment from a real blogger. Already.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog.

The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers. People who find your blog because of recommendations by other people.Search engines. Robotic processes which methodically surf your blog, and provide dynamic indexing to people who search for information.Subscribers. People who read your content from their newsfeed reader, such as the dashboard Reading List.Viewers. People who read your content from their browser.No two blogs are the same - and no two blogs will have the same combinations of traffic sources.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
