Killing analytics on my personal sites

Last year, I spent almost a full day setting up Fathom analytics to track my personal projects and this blog. It’s been just over a year now and after looking at my lackluster analytics 😁 I’ve decided to just stop paying the $5 a month to host the Fathom instance. It’s not worth even the $5, I’m doing something like 100 views on my blog and just about 100 on all others combined so in that case, I am wasting more effort maintaining the DigitalOcean box and paying a hefty amount for analytics.

This doesn’t mean I’m going to Google Analytics, that’s just a big no-no in my book.
