var addthis_pub=”4a0af351783743a8″;I recently lost Google Analytics.

I was playing around with new-looking blog templates and all of a sudden it was gone. Google Analytics is a super-slick way of keeping track of how your traffic is doing, where it’s coming from and how it’s getting to your site. I suppose I could re-load it…

But suddenly I don’t really want to.

Do I really care how many people read this? Yes. I honestly do. I wish this was a super-popular blog that had visitors from all over the planet scrambling up the bandwidth pipe to bask in my cyber-wisdom.

But I don’t know if my handy-dandy counter is helping with that. So I’m not going to put it back on.

And I’m not going to get one of those flashy, pretty templates for the blog. I don’t want you to come here just because it’s pretty. I want this blog to stand or fall with words. Are the words good? Are the sentences valuable? Do you, the reader, get something from the time you spend here? Then it stands.

Otherwise it falls.

Either way, I’m not going to be analytical about it anymore.
