Now that I have this blog up and linked from everywhere I have an option to, I'm super curious about how many visitors hit me up. But also understand and actively dislike being tracked on the web. So all I want to do is just to be able to answer the question: How many unique visitors do I get?

Tools like Google Analytics are a no-go. The features that I want are:

  1. Easy integration
  2. Simple dashboard
  3. No intrusive tracking
  4. Preferably an open source solution

One tool that checks all the boxes is: GoatCounter
Go have a look. Use them on your personal site if it fits your need.
