I finally did it. I removed Google Analytics from this site and won’t be tracking anyone anymore. It’s not like I was regularly keeping up with the numbers or optimising content anyway. It’s not about that. The only reason I implemented analytics in the first place was to if my blog had any readers at all. Simple curiosity. I found it fascinating that people from random cities and countries somehow landed here. And sometimes they even came back, or so it seemed.
Since I’ve never intended to use those analytics anyway, I figured I might as well remove them for good. I felt it’s the right thing to do. Yes, I could’ve opted for another more ethical solution like Plausible but I couldn’t be bothered because it just doesn’t matter.
Anyways, I hope you’ll still stop by every now and then. Make sure to say hi because I won’t know about it.
