Plausible continues growing fast so we're considering to add a new person to the team. Any good advice / blog posts for bootstrappers when looking to hire the first employee?

compromising the privacy of my readers. I get the required stats in
one glance. Updates are painless. Read more about my experience: geeksocket.in/posts/plausible-

All in all, I feel this header legitimises the standard more and more "because you can opt-out". #FLoC #privacy
