Stat Counter and Back Dated Posts

I'd like to start using a more specific stat counter. Right now I have SiteMeter which tells me how many people come here weekly, and breaks it down by day and hour. However, I'd like to have one that tells me HOW the people came here. I've tried googling it (just think, 10 years ago, googling definately was NOT the verb that it is now) and I wasn't having much luck. Can any of you, faithful readers, tell me which way to go?

Also, I've added some backdated posts for the month of October. They all include pics, so you may want to go a searching! You can just click "October" over on the sidebar menu that has my blog history and they will all pop up for you. There are quite a few pics so give it a moment to load correctly.

I was wondering something. I recently got a personalize font from Sugar Frog Fonts and I was thinking about how cool it would be to have that as my default font for my blog. So I'm wondering if anyone out there knows if I can do that? And if I can, how do I do that?

Prayers and blessings everyone, I hope you have a wonderful day!

I'll ask my dh. He knows about such things. I think both things are possible - but it would take a long time for me to figure out what he could in 5 minutes. Remind me if I forget!

"Google analytics" is what you need for how they get to your blog.

He says using your own font is possible, but not easy. He hasn't done it before, so it would take him and hour or two to figure out and be able to explain it to someone else. Sorry - he needs to spend that time on his qualifying exam and such like. Maybe I can help you search later.

One last comment - did a little bit of searching:

These are very different methods. The second one would be necessary if most of your blog will use it. I'm not all that awesome with programming code, so I don't know that I'll be able to help put that into your site code. Where's the step-by-step when you need it?
