Many of the popular blog-software packages make room for a line of descriptive text, often directly under the blog title. The WordPress default is something like “Just another WordPress blog”; I’m not absolutely certain because I change it within seconds of an install. And anyway, the slogan I adopted back in 2002 “I couldn’t possibly fail to disagree with you less” is hard-coded into the sidebar for now.
I usually don’t notice these unless they change and they take up either more or less space than the text they replaced. Which is how I noticed Jeffro’s: “We do not rent pigs.” Of course, a man who does rent pigs well, he’s hard to stop.
Now Tam changes hers out on a semi-regular basis, and this time she’s channeling Trænt Reznør: “What have I become, my Swedish friend? Everyone I know goes away, even Sven…”
If you have a favorite somewhere, by all means mention it here. It might be gone next week.
