I logged on to my WordPress dashboard today and noticed a new post in the WordPress.com News blog. Within seconds, I’d added the new statistics widget to my page, by just dragging and dropping it to my sidebar using the Presentation section of the dashboard. The hit count is looking fairly small at the moment, but I haven’t had to register with a third party site and then hack my template code to get this in place, like I had to do with Blogger.
The other news is that you can now have multiple blogs for a single account on WordPress.com, like you can with Blogger. So if I do feel like separating my technology-related musings from the other ones, I could do.
