If it seems like a petty complaint, imagine when more and more people do it. This title should be considered clickbait.
Nothing wrong with the honest title of “Show HN: Analytics for Ghost Blogs.”
You should say "it reached front page" instead of "I found it". Since you were the one who posted it, it shouldn't come as a surprise it's there.
Don't worry if you don't get much positive feedback here -- this seems like the kind of functionality that doesn't impress the HN crowd, but could become very popular among more often less-technical, actual Ghost users, quietly making you lots of money if marketed/advertised properly.
EDIT: server side logs have serious advantages: no tracking cookies needed, so no cookie consent needed. Once the parsing done, the actual logs can be purged, so GDPR compliance is fine. It's not fancy, that's true, but it gives you quite a nice overview; enough for most blogs out there.

By the way... would be cool to see your own stats for this site, assuming it is a Ghost site! :-) . That would be a great lead magnet as well! (like demo.baremetrics.com is for Baremetrics)
If this tool can identify any visitor, should track them so I doubt about 100% GDPR compliant without opt-in & opt-out.
Thanks for your message!
There is enough clickbait in the world as it is without you adding to it
