About Dan's Awards
When I started to build this website, I had never even heard of internet award programs. Then, I found to my surprise that my humble homepage had been made Site of the Week by Trellix Cafe on the 18th December 2000. After that, traffic through the site increased dramatically, and people from all over the world kindly left messages on my guestbook... it became addictive! Before long I had submitted my site to a whole raft of award programs, waiting with baited breath to see if I had been successful. Many of these programs recommend that candidates make a space ready to display their winnings - so here is mine, complete with a handful of awards...
