As as you play around with your blog designs and features, be sure to note where your site statistics are. You can track who follows you, how many discrete visits you’ve had, peak access times, and all sorts of information you may need later.
Also, a word of warning: I’ve already had one or two spam comments on the blog, so consider your comment features. Moderate them, if you like, so you can delete spam before it’s published. You can also require people who post comments to login, or apply anti-spam widgets to the site.
