Creating an ‘about’ page

And so, on to the 2004 archives! In January I was thrilled at the start of the new breakfast time Chris Moyles show on Radio One, as it freed me from a Sara Cox induced radio hell. I also asked my readers (yes, I had some back then!) to come up some quotes for me to use on my ‘about’ page off the back of a review I received. I’ve no idea which I chose in the end, as that page was binned off years ago, but the end of the post and the best of the subsequent comments on my 11th January 2004 entry looked something like this (with updated links, where I can find them)…

“So, this is where you guys come in. I want some quotes from you about either me or my site, like the sort they put on movie posters. Be bitchy, witty, truthful or creative… anything! Perhaps something along the lines of “Even better than XFM!” – Adrian Sevitz, “Could do with more swearing.” – Lyle or “Almost the best blog on my server.” – Topper. You get the general idea. The best ones will be used on this site as another dodgy ‘about’ page for me and some shameless promotion for you.”
