We’re pleased to announce that Child of the 1980’s is one year old today! Our first proper post was about Bagpuss, one of my favourite kids TV shows, and since then we’ve added over 280 more entries for your amusement. I initially started the site as a way of learning a bit more about Internet technologies, but I hope you have all enjoyed reading up and reminiscing about some of the things you (or your parents!) used to play with, listen to or watch when growing up.
To celebrate this week the posts are all going to be birthday related in some way, so make sure you keep up to date with them by either subscribing to our RSS feed or signing up for our free e-mail updates using the links in this post or those at the top or side of this page. We’d also love it if you could all let us know what category of topics on the site is your favourite using this weeks Saturday Survey, which you can find below. Just click your favourite topic and press Vote!
Oh, and if there’s anything you’d like to see us cover in the future then please leave us a comment on this post (or any post for that matter) and we’ll see what we can do.
