    I am enjoying this journey tremendously. The bloggosphere has opened up a world to me that seemed previously closed. I am so glad God, through a friend led me to Word Press. In theprocess of understanding, I have continued to look for and turn over new stones. Case in point. Today, while looking at my stats in site meter I saw that I could take a tour and use their premium service. Although I was a little sceptical, I decided to give it a whirl. I was blown away by what I saw. My stats, visits, reads and views were simply incredible. I will include the link here.

    http://sitemeter.com/?a=stats&s=s18freshmoco&r=79&d=31&md=1&pg=1&v=500.

    I am not complaining about the stats that are provided here at Word Press, but they shy in comparison to the information that I retrieved through the link above. According to what I see through site meter, I could be one of the fastest growning blogs on the web. I have only been doing this for 3 weeks. I realize that it is not of me, but through me so I have nothing to be cocky about. Staggering. Can some explain this apparent discrepancy? Thanks so much.

    Oh by the way, I have done alot of marketing on my the web to introduce my blog to many many groups, organizations, support groups, both internationally and nationally. I spend about 60-70 hours on the developing and building / growing my site. Motivation, encouragement and empowerment is what http://www.secondchancetolive.wordpress.com focus is upon. I may just be seeing the fruits of my labor, as is indicated by what you and I have seen through the link.

    Well, one think I noticed is that your sitemeter link is not configured properly on your site. I’m not sure if that’s affecting your numbers though. Check in Blogroll; you’ve added an extra “http://” to the sitemeter link.

    We can’t explain the discrepancy until we know what your WordPress stats are. What are they for the day, week, etc?

    Hey guys,
    Help me configure my sitemeter and what do you think about Clustrmaps.com as a feasible stat counter?

    Your sitemeter is already configured by the looks of things. Clustrmaps is something I have no experience with.

    At the risk of being accused of blog pimping (oh perish the thought) I did a talk on stats here as an audio podcast that you might be interested in. The audience supplied some useful resources that might help you.

    Pimp on Raincoaster. Thanks for the head’s up.
