I’m playing with WordPress (which I like quite a bit), and I’ve put up a dummy blog to learn about it. It doesn’t have any real posts, just garbage.
Somehow I’m getting a few outside hits on the blog. I don’t have a real site up at the domain (just the standard Apache manual at this point), and there are no links to the blog’s sub-directory anywhere.
And someone seems to have subscribed to my RSS feed — every few hours, the feed is polled.
I can’t figure out how anyone would have found this site. The only answers I can come up with are that (a) someone grabbed the url from a referrer log, (b) WordPress phones home, or (c) there’s a graphic in style I grabbed that queries someone else’s server.
My subject is bad, because I don’t really think that WordPress phones home. But I’m sort of curious about what’s going on. Has anyone else noticed something similar?
