Pros and cons of showing blog stats

  1. My blog is only a few months new and I'm not sure if I should show or hide my blog stats. It's great for "me" to know how many visitors I have, even better to receive comments, but my numbers are still quite low.

    If I decide to hide the blog stats widget, will it affect my numbers? I'm concerned I may lose the number count or a glitch might occur when I remove the widget?

    I would appreciate any feedback on pros/cons of showing stats and if I add the widget back, will the number still be accurate?

    I know this is a personal choice, but interested to hear your thoughts.

    Thanks!

    (twentyeleven theme - so no options on widget other than what is provided)

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

    Count will not get lost if you are using the standard Count Widget that is built in - all it does is display the page view total from the main stats section and is not required to be active for counting to happen

  3. Thank you auxclass!

    As we know each other I'll cut to the chase > it's a childish bragging widget - remove it! :)

  5. Thank you for your honest feedback :) I posted another question in a different forum on stats by country - prefer that one more.
