A Novel Take on Analytics / Watering the Garden

  • Every time someone visits any sprout, I get a notification on my phone. It looks like this:
    push notification
  • Curiously, the experience is very different from having a dashboard to look at. It's not the same to get 3 notifications in a row, than to see a "3" in a Google Analytics dashboard or similar. It doesn't even compare.
  • I like it this way. It gives me a raw feeling of what is catching my visitors' eyes, and it gives me motivation to keep improving the sprouts.
  • This means that when you visit a sprout, you're also "watering" it. You're bringing it to my attention and reminding me to update it if necessary. Thank you for that!
