I’v learned that when you press like from the reader without click at the post for showing the whole post, the view stats don’t count your view.
So I probably have 101 views and not 43 today. But some of the likers has not read the whole posts. I don’t mind. I think you should visit, read, like and comment posts exactly the way you want to do it. Not the way what wp stats says you should do it.
You can also see how my stats has decreased recently. That’s because I haven’t had the time to hang around here at wp with you all as much as I wish to. But I’ll be back for real soon I hope. Have some artmaking to do for an exhibition in May.
