It’s All About Me

Filed under: Blogging Matters,General — Patterico @ 12:04 am

Tech wizard Evariste is writing me a script that will give me a rotating batch of quotations about me and the site. I wanted to do this as early as August of 2005, and had collected about eight quotes or so as of that date. I have collected quite a few more, and there’s something amusing about seeing them all in the same place. Click on “more” to read them. (Yes, they are all real quotes.)

    // To add more quotations, continue with the
    // pattern, adding to the array. Remember
    // to increment the Quotation[x] index!

    Quotation[0] = “[K]eep up the great work. Love the blog.”;
