Sum of all message views does not seem to add up to the total count?
How are page views counted. Should sum of all message views be equal to the total count?

Let say your blog contains 15 messages.
Then, your blog has 1 main blog page + 15 message pages + 1 description page
That is 1 + 15 + 1 = 17 pages.
Views to all those pages are counted by main counter.
If you add together numbers from 15 message pages, the sum should always be less then the main counter cause main counter is not only counting views to those 15 pages, it is also counting all views to 2 extra pages (main blog page + description page).
Ther are no separate counters counting views to description or views to main blog page.
If a blog has 25 messages, that blog has 2 pages listing all messages, and all views to those 2 pages are also counted.
Blog that has 25 messages has 28 pages.
