As I'm developing Scribbles I wanted an easy way to ignore hits of logged in users, without having to do any trickery with adding an ignore via localStorage. The need for this came because a blog could have Tinylytics enabled, and if it was your blog, it would always register a hit β€” and like any good blogger you probably check your blog a lot. However, to avoid a full on block on hits across all sites on Scribbles (because you are nice and caring), the localStorage options is not really an option.

β€” A new custom way to ignore hits on Tinylytics

"Well, it's been a week! Well, OK, about 10 days. Productive for sure and I have no idea where to start here except to say that there's been so many changes in the past week on Scribbles it's difficult to put them here."

β€” A raft of changes: blog settings, explore and much more on the Scribbles blog

Pretty sexy search page for Scribbles. Happy with the way it worked out.

Now you can request the script in SPA friendly format which will give you some extra goodies! To get started, all you have to do is add the `spa` parameter to the script tag.

β€” Support for SPA (Single Page Apps) apps β€” Tinylytics Update Blog

I deployed a lot of new tweaks and changes to Scribbles in the past week, especially in the past 24 hours. Remind me to write it all up in a blog post!

"Add to Dock..." β€” looks nice.

OK, step one of getting the Tinylytics Update Blog ready for that article I'm supposed to write 😋

I need to concentrate on getting a written update out for something I shipped last week on Tinylytics. Also realise there wasn't an email update in some time β€” aiming for next week though. Tiny is working great for many and that makes me happy.

Don't want to brag, but this has been the uptime of tinylytics over the last ~6 months. I'd call that 100% πŸ˜… because in November it was a DNS issue with Cloudflare. Not bad. Gonna try and do the same this year and beyond πŸ’ͺ

If you're a Wordpress user, and also happen to be using Tinylytics (you should, if not 😋), then Jim has you covered with his excellent plugin that you can get here. Super excited!

Thank you Jim ✌️❀️
