Congrats Ghost on the new release! They're an inspiration to us. When I try to figure out how to manage our growing open source / GitHub community, I go look at Ghost. They've been there, seen it, done it!

@z428 yeah i agree. would be great if more open source software gets sustainable as then more people would be able to work on it and we would get even more quality options that can compete with surveillance capitalism tools even for the mainstream audience.

if you do know someone else who might find Plausible useful, we'd really appreciate if you'd let them know. thanks!

It's interesting to look at this VC/market downturn from the bootstrapper's perspective. What they recommend now is what we specialize in.

We always "plan for the worst". We keep our costs low, focus on being sustainable and have a product people find useful / want to pay for.

Latest Fedora Linux OS release is out! Open source, simple, beautiful, privacy-friendly, streamlined and gets out of your way. It's so cool what open source communities can build!

@cdevroe hi! depends on your needs really. you can try it out and see if it gives you useful insights that you need. we don't have any other plans other than those listed on our homepage. we've tried to make them as fair and affordable as we can so they can fit a wide range of use cases. thanks!

@pimterry yeah, it's very weird! i wonder what's going on...

Google Analytics is making some interesting decisions lately:

- Trying to force people to switch to GA4 even when they don't want/like it
- No import of historical stats into GA4
- Doesn't want to fix serious bugs in UA (there's a big issue with realtime reporting that people are complaining about and Google said that they won't fix it)
- No plans to comply with Schrems II / GDPR

Nice to see Plausible improving for "google analytics alternative" and similar searches.

We seem to be second or third organic position. We're in "related searches" and "people also ask" sections too.

There's about 17 ads above us but still...

@aral nice! i'm running Silverblue as well. using Firefox from Flathub instead of the default one so I don't need to layer any extras.

@imacrea yeah, we're getting these pretty much daily... this one was remarkable because they're using "ai"

Google Analytics is now communicating their big change to users via email. Let's see what happens next...

Universal Analytics, the current version of Google Analytics, will be sunset and will stop counting stats on July 1st 2023. There’s no way to import your historical UA stats into the new GA4, so we've put a lot of effort into making a GA import tool ourselves.

You can now import your historical Google Analytics (UA) stats into your Plausible dashboard. You can import the stats from your first Google Analytics visitor until your first Plausible Analytics visitor.

@aral Debian unstable/Sid has it but it takes a bit more effort to set it up / maintain it compared to Fedora's out of the box experience

I'll be on the FLOSS Weekly show from about 6.30pm CET tonight thanks to the invite by Doc Searls.

I checked the recent shows and guests included Matt Mullenweg plus some other cool names so now I'm nervous. Hopefully I can say something interesting (and the baby doesn't cry)! 😅
