Getting moved in…



Well, I imported the old blog, figured out how to do more widgets, and things are looking up.  It looks like I’ll stay.  It’s a pretty nice neighborhood, now that I’m getting used to it.  

Why did I move?  I like the UI better than blogger.  At first I didn’t think I could use as many widgets, but I cracked that code a bit.  I also like that the stats are easier to use, but I do like seeing where people come from.  So sitemeter may still find it’s way here.  

Still have a lot to do around here, but it’s really freakin’ late and I should sleep now.

    Typical…I show up to a blog-warming late, disheveled and without a gift. But I still expect free food and booze 😉

    I hope you enjoy WordPress! I’ve used WP in my whole 9 months of blogging (wow). I poked around a variety of blogs and found that nine out of ten bloggers seemed to be happy with WP, so that’s where I chose to dip my toe in the blogging waters.

    Anyway – write on my friend!

  2. looking good! when’s the housewarming party?

  3. Ain’t WP fun? 🙂 I’m still figuring out widgets, but since I’m in a queue for a super-duper paying for it update with my veddy own domain, it can wait. LOL! If I hadn’t put it off for so long, I’d have it already! LOL! But this looks great, and the whole “more positive” spin…well, I agree. I’m changing the name of mine as well. 😉

  4. Hi — WP does not support java scripting (JS, what most meter codes are anyways) so if you use Sitemeter — you have to use the HTML code not the JS code. That does not tell you much — basically only how many people visited, page they looked at, but not where they came from/referrals (empty page), outclicks.
    So half the stats they offer actually work here.

    I think WP has great stats built in.
    I noticed on my WP account that if someone marks your page as a favorite, the visit does not count on your stats came from URLs.

    Also, if you use tags on your posts, your tags will show up as “related” on other people’s blogs or on the tag surf page on site or in your controls. So if people use the same tags as you, your post will show up randomly on their tag surf page and you get an anonymous reader.
