A few new things to report on here.
1) I have made a custom author template page that will list all of the Blogging Idol Contestants a little bit about them and a link to their profile page. http://blogidol.ca/contestants
2) StatsPress – Another awesome wordpress plugin is here to make my life easier. StatsPress collects all sorts of information on page views, search terms, refferal urls and more. Now contestants will be able to access this information when they log in to the site and can track their posts and the sites traffic progress. To learn more or use it yourself visit: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/statpress/
Also check out my recent post about other features and as always feel free to ask any questions.
