wordpress.com stats on my self hosted (not hosed) blog?

wordpress.com stats on my self hosted (not hosed) blog?

I have a weird situation going on here. I have my own blog, Harvest of Daily Life and I help N with his blog, Green Preferred. Both blogs have the most recent wordpress version which is 2.3.3 as of today.

The strange thing is that he has this nifty wordpress.com stats display in his dashboard mine does not and I can’t figure out why…


Anyone have any idea what is going on here?? What am I missing?



After chatting with Teeni and Witchypoo about all this I searched and found the plugin page: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/stats/ It says that once you have your API key in it’s all automatic. The catch is that you have to install the plugin– duh! So I guess I just was confused because when I set up greenpreferred.com

I didn’t install the stats plugin it was just there, or I am just loosing my mind and I did install it and just for got. Ugh, well thanks to my Witchypoo and Teeni for their emails and patience. 😉

Now I can see what strange ways people found my blog like Witchypoo in her How they found me post.

    Isn’t the WordPress stats thing a plugin? Don’t you have to install it? I have no idea what I’m talking about cuz I’m still using the free version but just wondering out loud. **shrugs** Also – got a giggle out of your heading – self -hosed blog. Did you mean that or was it a typo? It was genius.

  • Sign up for a wordpress.com account, make a dummy blog, and scoop your API key.
    You will need it for Akismet spam protection anyway.
    Then log into your wordpress.com dashboard, and switch from the wordpress.com blog to your self-hosted WP blog. Do I need to take screenshots?
    This works well because you get to use wordpress.com server, and that frees up a fair amount of bandwidth.

  • I’m a hoser (Canadian-I think it refers to our nation pastime of getting hosed) so I thought it was a salute to me 😉
