Hello there, long time no see! This is going to be a very quick post, but I just wanted to share that in the past few days, I have integrated an analytics service into my website. Fear not, however: I will not be using some third-party, data-mining, privacy-violating proprietary crap made by a big tech company just to tell me how many people have visited my website and draw a shiny graph on the screen. The tracking software I'm using is called Plausible Analytics, and it's free as in freedom. Also, in the interest of transparency, the page that aggregates the statistics that I'm keeping track of is visible here: what you see is what I see, unfiltered! The reason for doing this is that I am addicted to graphs and statistics: I cannot resist a webpage filled with numbers, graphs, knobs and dials and such, but I have never wanted to use software like Google Ads, for obvious privacy reasons, so this idea has always stayed at the back of my mind, until now that is!
P.S.: Thanks to the great folks at HyperBit for hosting an instance of this awesome piece of software and letting us know early, by the way!
See you soon! :)
