Creating A Subject Related Feed

This blog is about blogging, and I suspect that a few of you have subscribed to one or more of the feeds that are provided here. I use a number of feeds, too, in this blog - look in the sidebar.

When your blog has an activated feed, every label search can be accessed as a feed. You can subscribe to one of the topics related feeds here - maybe my Labels feed, or my internationally relevant topic - Languages.

You can include subject feeds from other blogs, too, using custom feeds published by services like FeedBurner.

Just decide what you want, and use your imagination.

I am really new to blogging and I am enjoying reading your posts:however, being new to the Blogger world, I really do not understand all that you are talking about!!!

So, I am trying to figure out 1st, if their is a free counter that can be added to my blog that works like the counters that you add to websites? They simply look like a box or set of numbers using near the bottom of your page. After being added to your page, they simply keep turning with each new visit.

The other thing I was wondering is about the feeds. If I enable the feeds in my controls, then others can access my site in whatever way they wish, correct? I am thinking hopefully, that this might increase my following, eventually, but without changing the appearance of my blog. And that it only changes the way in which other read my blog! Correct??

Sorry, if this sounds simplistic, but I only created my blog yesterday!!!

Thank you, Kathy

BTW, did you create the note about comment moderation???

Custom Domain Migration - Managing The Traffic

Your blog depends upon traffic for its success.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog. Publishing the blog to a custom domain, like renaming the blog, will affect traffic to 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.
