A vanity wiki is a wiki used as a personal vanity press for advertising (including self-promotion), self-deprecation, or attempts to become an Internet celebrity. A vanity wiki can sometimes be a bliki used for journaling, propagation of one's ideas and opinions, etc. Vanity wikis typically have only one regular contributor, the owner.
