    1. The only stats I get from WordPress are the number of yearly posts and comments. That is on the main stats page in the app. The rest was from old fashioned counting. I do wish that all the stats were in one place and easier to use. So I would like to give ye better advice matey but like in most things I make it up as I go along. Perhaps some of me crew has better methods. Thanks for bein’ one of me top commenters. Ye make me happy.
