    Good afternoon,

    I’m a regular contributor for a website powered by WordPress; I had made some contributions a few years ago and was given an opportunity as a novice writer to contribute to a website that had already been established and it gave the efforts I put into writing some purpose…

    Anyway, I login to the website using WordPress which takes me straight to the dashboard of our site from where I work on drafts, manipulate media and compile research, then I’m trusted with self-publishing, which has been truly great for someone working on learning the ropes…

    However, I’ve been checking out several writing apps seeking to focus more on how to produce better quality content, and I’ve just downloaded the WordPress for Mac app which I think might make posting for the website easier.

    My question is, I have virtually zero ability to monitor my own posts or how they’re performing with various audiences; I’ve resorted to inserting a primitive hit counter on all my posts in order to gain some idea what my traffic looks like; but I know with our site being part of WordPress, my using a log-in in order to publish my content, I was wondering if there is any way of having any ability to manage or monitor my own posts from my own archive sub-domain away from the main domain, so I could have some limited oversight over my own content’s performance….

    The website Is http://www.intellectualconservative.com; and, my archives/sub-domain can be found at http://www.intellectualconservative.com/author/hanscomprix. I would love to be able to take advantage of the many benefits WordPress offers its users, however, I feel my account is pretty restricted as to what purpose it serves asides from logging into the website and publishing content I have no ability to gain the insights WordPress makes available to most other users, unless I’m simply unaware of the technical issues surrounding my needs.

    Is it possible or do I have any viable options in this respect as I wish to continue contributing content to the site; I’d just love to have some capacity to gain insights from the performance of my work.

    The blog I need help with is www.intellectualconservative.com.

    Any insights, advice, or letdowns would be greatly appreciated… I’m looking particularly for someone with a wide-breadth of WordPress experience as this issue seems as if it’s rather uncommon.

    Thank you…

    Hey hanscomprix,
     
    I took a look at the website intellectualconservative.com and it appears that it’s not hosted on WordPress.com. Right now it’s pointing to Blue Host.
     
    Generally that means the owner of the site is a WordPress.org user. While they might seem the same, there are actually some pretty substantial differences between the two systems. You can find out more about the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
     
    The forum you’re on right now is dedicated to WordPress.com sites only. While we won’t be able to help you here, if you go to https://wordpress.org/support/ there’s a pretty good chance you’ll be able to get some assistance for your site.
     
    That being said, generally if you’re set as an Author then your dashboard should have a Stats page that gives you a breakdown of the posts that you post for that site. If it’s not showing up then the owner of the site may not have the right plugins setup for stat tracking. That’s something you might want to discuss with them. If they are unsure of what to do then the above support forum would be a great resource.
     
    Thanks for reaching out!
