Are there any tools available in Blogger to help block referral spam traffic, tools that are easy for novices to set up and use?

Hi Rosy B :-)
No there isn't.

The following is a free service that i have used in the past with good result https://referrerspamblocker.com/
It will setup filters and segments n that for you.
There is a video here that also goes thru how you set it up etc
