About This Blog


Measured Me blog started as a personal experiment in self-tracking and life optimization in 2012, and has been on and off since then.

The initial goal was to demonstrate empirically that any aspect of my everyday life can be measured and logged on a regular basis, and the knowledge from that data can be used to help me live better. For over 5 years, I was using dozens of apps, gadgets and services to track my life, and shared my experiences in this blog. I also explored different ways to slice, dice and analyze all that data in order to reveal meaningful patterns and actionable insights.

In 2019, the focus of this project has shifted from tracking everything to tracking only the things that matter. The old posts that were not aligned with the current vision have been deleted or rewritten. The most interesting posts have been preserved or republished using fresh data.
