Widget For Tracking Blogspot Visitors

Ive been googling for some Blogger Visitor widgets and most of them seem to redirect you to specific sites for getting information after you add a bit of code in the templates. Services like comstat seem to do that.

Having used Wordpress before, I like their idea of seeing each post and how many users visited those pages from the admin pages. That's more intuitive and easy for the user. Infact, the earlier post I made about Monitoring Traffic for Blogger Hosted sites requires that you login to Google Analytics to view that.

Im thinking of writing a plugin that would gather information from Google Analytics (And they have an api) and show it as a widget in the Admin Panel. Im doing this just to learn a bit of how to write widgets for Blogger as well as make it easier for bloggers to view traffic info.

Is there something like this available already ?
