About

…the blog

Hoyden About Town was begun by tigtog in September 2005. HAT offers an eclectic selection of opinion/commentary/linkage on matters which catch our eye. We speak fangeek and have long been aware of all internet traditions.

We welcome guest posters, although we have a few guidelines [» more info].

New readers should check the Commenting Guidelines before joining in the discussion. This blog moderates comments as we deem necessary, and the guidelines explain why.


  • We make no attempt to be a journal of record, and any quoted material is reproduced on the basis of the “fair dealing for purpose of criticism or review” section 41 of the Copyright Act 1968.
  • Some things we take more seriously than others: politics, feminism, parenting, health, disability, and skepticism for a start. [»more on Special Interests]
  • Recommended Reading: RSS feed modules for our other blogs and feed-readers are on the Our Other Blogs page.
  • You can find some of the images we’ve blogged on Flickr, as well as the Hoydens About! group, which readers can join and add their own photos.
  • Ways to subscribe to our posts such as RSS, LJ, DW, Facebook and Twitter (and more) are on our Subscription Options page.
