- Matomo Analytics. This is a first-party analytics-tool entirely managed and controlled by me. No data leaves my server at all. I use Matomo to check which pages get visited and which don’t so that I know what to write about next. I also used it on my old site, and it’s very helpful to see which old pages I should salvage and redirect, and which ones I may leave to sink into oblivion.
- Gravatar. This is something WordPress apparently insists on when I allow commenting. If you don’t want Gravatar to know about you, then simply don’t use their service. You’re welcome to block their cookie using an adblocker.
In fact, this site should work perfectly fine with your adblocker on full blast. I don’t make any money from this site so I don’t push any ads at you anyway.
