Theoretically this is a cookie/GDPR/tracking disclaimer.
Except I ran it through Blacklight and found only three trackers, all of which are from posts with embedded YouTube videos in them.
(I could just remove the posts, but then I lose two talks, 10 hours of the Haunted Mansion, and marching cats. I mean, c’mon. The cats.)
So what runs this site?
It’s a WordPress install. I keep it updated when I remember.
I use GeneratePress as the theme. It’s a bit fancier than I need, but I haven’t found a bare bones basic theme yet that really gives me what I need, so this clean and neat free theme does me nicely.
I have three plugins I use:
- WP Toolbelt – I only really use this for tiny things (like reducing the size of headers), but things keep being added to it, and I keep going “Hmm, that might be neat.” And it’s just nice.
- Koko Analytics – A very very nice and basic analytics program, and I’ve turned cookies off on it so it isn’t tracking people that way either.
- Wapuu Dashboard Pet – Because it’s cute. That’s it. It’s darn cute.
And…that’s it. No SEO. No Google Analytics. No social media connections.
I like all of that – heck, I’d be out of a job if I didn’t – but it’s just too much for such a rinky-dink site. Sometimes I think even WordPress might be too much, but then I remember what a pain it’d be to hand-code all this HTML and I go “Well…..I’ll make one exception…”
Besides, it’s nice to have something without bells and whistles, isn’t it?
