The Real Blogger Status / WordPress Edition #1

The Real Blogger Status / WordPress Edition is now online.

All I did was run a script from the WordPress Dashboard - Import. It was predictable, and simple.

  • Indicate Blogger as my blog host.
  • Backup settings in blogs being imported.
  • Log out of Blogger, from the Dashboard.
  • Log in to Blogger, thru the Import script.
  • Select the blog to be imported, from my Blogger blog list.
  • Watch and pray.
  • This blog is not terribly large, just a few pictures (no, actually just 1), and maybe 50 posts. It took a good 5 minutes, with a nice console type display showing what was going on.
  • The Import script finished, and that was that.


Having finished, I now have a blog in WordPress. That being said, it's just a blog.

All in all, a brief and disappointing exercise. It's pretty - check it out. But there's lots more to be done, before The Real Blogger Status / WordPress Edition can be seen as a mirror to The Real Blogger Status / Blogger Edition.

See The Real Blogger Status / WordPress Edition #2 for the continuing experience.

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.
