I want it do go to my blog and see how many views the page has (which is shown on a sidebar)
Not an answer to your question, but I would definitely make some kind of webservice for this. Something like http://api.yourblog.com/views
, which returns the number of views only (check things like REST API for examples). Web scraping
is probably the last thing you want to do on your Arduino because it is very resource-intensive.
Also, if you only need to retrieve a number from the web and show that on your display, instead of finding it on a page, you'll probably don't even need processing.
