Hello, I’m starting to set up a self-hosted personal blog (may switch to Ghost Pro later if it becomes something growing…). At the moment I’m looking for simple, lightweight and privacy-respecting analytics and comments integrations.
For comments I would like something where visitors can just enter a name and email to comment - my audience is unlikely to use a lot of SSO. I have found Commento and commentbox which allow either anonymous or sign-in comments, but not just a name & email. Is there any other suggestions? Disqus adds ads and tracking, and Discourse seems overkill.
For analytics, I’m thinking of Plausible which, along with Fathom, seems simple and lightweight enough to use. Is there experience of hosting this alongside Ghost?
