Event tracking with Google analytics

How to setup?

I want to setup event tracking with analytics on a blog post on a site running wordpress. My objective is to see exactly how many views that post gets and how many clicks on the image accompanying the post.

I am reading through Google's guide to this and they gave an example for the script to insert for tracking the plays of a video:

<a href="#" onClick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'Videos', 'Play', 'Baby\'s First Birthday']);">Play</a>

So for my custom event if I were to change 'Video' (the category name) to 'blog post' and 'PLay' (action name" to 'clicks' would that work?

Also where exactly on the site would I insert this code?

No one know how to do this? I've tried the google help but I'm still pretty clueless :(

It should work when changing the names in the code.

The amount of views of the blogpost would be better handled by the normal (trackpages) action of analytics, the clicks on the image could be done with the above mentioned code.

Just put the onclick="...." in the <img> tag
