How do i see which date I created my blog

  1. I cannot see the start date of my blog from my site stats. How do I see which date I created the blog? And can I see my stats starting from that date?

    The blog I need help with is zainabjavid.wordpress.com.

  2. Znjavid
    Site stats - http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/ shows things like visits, clicks, top posts, etc. Site stats does not show start dates.
    The date you posted a blog/post will be in your Dashboard under All Posts. The date a given post was published is on the far right side of the list.
    Hope this helps.
    Cheers!

  3. If you published your first post on the same day you created the blog you can also click the Archives widget links and locate the date of the first post you published.

  4. re: stats
    Our stats are not real time stats and take hours to update.

    Be aware that likes and shares and reblogs are not page views stats. In fact, likes, shares and reblogs are completely misleading when you are talking about page view stats. Your followers and anyone with a WordPress.com blog who is logged into WordPress.com can "like", "share" and "reblog" your posts in several locations such as the Reader, without ever clicking into your blog and creating a single page view stat.

    You can control the length of the entry sent out on your RSS feed here > Settings > Reading. Choose the "summary" setting for your RSS feed rather than to "full text". That will compel followers who are not using mobiles to click into the blog to read the full post which will create a page view stat.

    Visitors using a mobile can read the full post without creating a page view stat. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/wordpresscom-reader-show-full-text?replies=31#post-1373606

    Note that setting the RSS Feed to summary does not affect the length of the post displayed on the front page or main page for posts on the blog. To create excerpts there we can split content by inserting "the more tag" http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/

    Also note that you can disable "Sharing" on the same page:
    Settings > Reading
    Add to each article in your feed:
    Categories
    Tags
    Comment count
    Sharing
    Changes may not appear until you create a new post or your news reader refreshes.

  5. Thanks. So I found the date of my first post but I guess there's no way to see the stats from the first post to date. The site stats are a bit limited that way.

  6. If you look in the Stats Summery you will see the first month that you have stats - the start date of each blog used to be listed under Domains I think but was removed a year or so back for some reason that was never given out

  7. Following up on what auxclass said re: Summaries
    Click this link http://wordpress.com/#!/my-stats/?view=table
    Also note "About the math" at the bottom of that page.
