Like millions of other website owners, we use Google Analytics on bartonpdx.com

The tracking information allows us to better understand the visitors that come to our site and what content they’re reading, allowing us to make better decisions about design and writing. Occasionally, we will compile aggregate statistics about the number of visitors this site receives and browsers being used. No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting.
