My personal websites have been a resounding success, with two of them being leaders in their field. The British Library considers three of them to be 'of cultural, historical and political importance', resulting in a request for them to be included in the UK Web Archive.
I launched Mark Moxon's Travel Writing, my first website, in 1998. I originally created the site to teach myself HTML, but over the years the site has grown and grown. Every single thing you see on this website – and indeed, all my websites – is my own work, from the writing and the photography to the site design and the Perl scripts. The site has over 490 pages of travel writing, its own RSS feed and podcast channel, as well as a searchable photo library containing over 1550 photographs, free eBooks and audiobooks, and a guestbook.
Following hot on the footsteps of my travel writing website is Long-Distance Walks with Mark Moxon, which takes 100 pages of my writing on long-distance walks and presents them with over 220 photographs. In a similar vein, Walking Land's End to John o'Groats with Mark Moxon tells the story of my 2003 walk across Britain, with over 100 stories and 900 photographs; the site is in Google's top five Land's End to John o'Groats websites, and is increasing in popularity every day. I recently added Tubewalker to the fold, which uses Google Maps mash-ups to tell the story of my 2008 walk along the entire length of the London Underground, and already traffic is piling in. And, of course, there is the site you are currently reading, bringing the total to five.
All five sites demonstrate my attention to detail and meticulous dedication to top-quality code and accessible websites; all three have been validated to the XHTML 1.0 and CSS standards by W3C's validation service, and have Level AA Conformance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0.
