In WordPress you have to buy hosting and you can create databases in that hosting but for blogger you don't have to buy any hosting but for this page views counter functionality we will need to have database.

$.each($('div[post-id]'), function(i, e) {
var blogStats = new Firebase("https://posts-views-1.firebaseio.com/pages/id/" + $(e).attr('post-id'));
blogStats.once('value', function(snapshot) {
var data = snapshot.val();
var isnew = false;
if(data == null) {
data= {};
data.value = 0;
data.url = window.location.href;
data.id = $(e).attr('post-id');
isnew = true;
}
$("#page-views").text(convertSize(data.value));
data.value++;
if(window.location.pathname!='/')

if(isnew)
blogStats.set(data);
