I spent last evening revamping my blog and in the process found the Stats button at the top of my blog page.
I love it! I have always had a stat counter but I never check it - this is just so much easier. Click the tab and voila'! Insta-stats.
If you already knew about this [why didn't you tell me?] then I am now making you yawn, but if you haven't tried it before go fool around with it. It's fun!
