Your privacy matters. On this blog, I strictly avoid tracking and vehemently oppose third-party data access without your consent. I prioritize services that respect your privacy and security.
I personally fund all services used for this blog. It’s crucial to me that entities like Google, Bing, Meta, and others don’t access your data – what you read here or how long you stay is private.
Software and Services Powering This Blog
This blog is powered by Ghost, an open-source software, hosted on a DigitalOcean instance. To improve my content, I use Pirsch Analytics, a privacy-first analytics service. For enabling discussions, I use Hyvor Talk, which also respects user privacy.
