Blue smoke after car had been standing

Hey,
i have noticed this a few times. But if my car has been standing for a week or more without being used I get a puff of blue smoke once it starts and is gone within a second.
Over than that there is no smoke on acceleration or overrun, just that split second after start up. If been left standing for a week with no use.
Over than that it runs as normal.
It's an 05 sti btw with very low miles (30,000)
I done a bit of research on Google, some people say it's normal others say it's not?!?
I do know that it is a very normal and common thing on Porsche boxer engines.
What do you lot think?
Thanks for any input.

Re: Blue smoke after car had been standing

keep an eye on oil level and any more on start up. If its using oil or getting more smoke worth more investigation
