Setting Up A New Blog?

Always add a stub post. And Publish.

If you don't, you'll likely go back the next day, and try to login. And you'll get
Not Found

The requested URL was not found on this server.


Always setup a stub, if you don't feel like posting anything immediately. Why?
  1. You have to publish something, for the blog to exist. Either a real post, or a stub post, it doesn't matter.
  2. You cannot publish an empty blog.
Plain and simple.

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.
