I Removed Google Analytics from My Blog

I’ve wrestled a lot in the past about whether I should or should write a blog. But I’ve kept it up for long periods even when I did not write on it because I know that when I do write, it is good for me. Whether it is processing something more personal in a way I can share with others. Or explaining how to do something related to web development. My depth of knowledge on the subject is always increased. So, why don’t I do it more?

One of the big driving reasons behind my discouragement to write more here is not feeling like I have an “audience.” I haven’t checked my Google Analytics stats a lot. But I have checked them often enough to know that the impact isn’t that large. I am okay with that. But I am not okay laboring over whether this site is or isn’t “successful.” So I have decided to remove the tracking altogether. Because ultimately—I blog for me.
