Why Do I Not Use Analytics?

Analytics is not used on my website or things I create, but it is not for the reason you are thinking of.

This page was published on , and last updated on .

This website does not have analytics.

My reason to not use analytics was not for technical or moral reasons. There are analytics available now that captures details in truly anonymous way and I chose to not use those either.

  • If I had few readers, it would discourage me and I would find it difficult to continue writing.
  • If some of my posts gets more attention, I will probably start writing things similar to those posts.
  • If I had many readers who spend time on my blogs then I would potentially think that I am some kind of celebrity who is followed by many, which I am obviously not.
  • This is my personal site, I treat it like my home, and I want it to be spyware free!

There are other moral reasons for me to include them, but the above list came up first to me and the choice was obvious.
