If you ever wonder how to track your visitors, try to put a counter on your blog. A well known site that offers counters for your blog is http://www.free-counters.co.uk. To add a counter to your site, simply go to their site, then hit 'Create a Counter' on the navigation bar. Choose the design you like. Then, you must configure the counter; just follow what it tells you.
The counter from free-counters.co.uk do have some limitations though, for example, we are not allowed to put the counter for over 9 month. But I suppose this is more practical than to use Google Analytics or AWStats.
