Welcome to the blogosphere Judah Phillips!
There was a question posted to the Yahoo! group recently asking about web analytics practitioner blogs. I looked at the post and thought “what a funny thing to ask about …” but it stuck in my head. I’m not even sure if the author got many answers given that most of the folks that pop into my head are all either working for vendors or working in consulting groups.
Some of the best practitioner-bloggers, folks like Clint Ivy and Avinash Kaushik, have gone to work for vendors (and I happen to know of one more such defection about to occur but have been sworn to secrecy, for now …) Of the folks I track in my blogroll, I believe that only Dustin Wallace, Paul Strupp, and Scott Baldwin are real web analytics practitioners-not-consultants-not-vendors … surprisingly few when you consider that the vast majority of people doing web analytics are not working for vendors or consulting firms.
Well all that just changed: My friend Judah Phillips has joined the fray. Not only has Judah joined the fray, Judah is the first practitioner to join me by blogging under the Analytics Demystified brand.
Now, in my experience, Judah has never been at a loss for words so I won’t do him the injustice of putting words into his mouth. He’s written an introductory post and I would encourage you to give it a read.
