Blogger Stats

Today, I discovered "Blogger Stats" and what a welcome enhancement it is.  As some may be aware, I am new here at Blogger, a refugee from Windows Live Spaces.  A wave of updates at Spaces has ruined it as a useful platform.  The last straw was the elimination of visitor stats.  What a pleasant surprise to discover Blogger Stats.  If you activate Blogger in Draft, you will find a new "Stats" link in your Dashboard, and a new "Stats" tab in "Settings."  It is reminiscent of Google Analytics which I had already added.  The advantage is that it is built right into your blog account.  It appears that Google giveth what Microsoft taketh away.
