Transparency is not only a buzzword but something I encourage and embrace. In doing so I expose all of the blog analytics in the open. So I encourage everyone that can be transparent with their websites and businesses.
I recently switched from Google Analytics to Simple Analytics which I will write in more detail soon. The summary is I don't need nor want all the data which Google is collecting and storing for this website. This website is 100% open and transparent. No more collecting cookies, IP's or tracking you in anyway. To prove the point I have opened my Analytics Dashboard for all to see.
