Webring List

Introduction

I completely rewrote my original History of Webrings page in July 2021, a couple of months later in October, Ash posted to my Guestbook that perhaps I was wrong and that webrings are making a comeback mostly due to the interest in creating personal websites created by Neocities.

Most of the sites I've looked at on Neocities seem very retro in appearance, about the same as this site when it was started around 20 years ago. Several sites have manifestos, such as the collections at Sad Girl Online and Yesterweb. These manifestos bemoan the fact that social media and commercial sites have taken over the internet, which they have, but there's been places to write personal sites for over 25 years and Neocities aren't doing anything particularly new.

The original webring systems privided a list so you could choose to join an existing webring or create your own and these were usually confined to single subjects, some of which were very loosely defined. Neocities and other new webring systems have a different view in that most of the webrings I looked at are not confined to a particular subject, so you jump from site to site not quite knowing what you are going to get. Worse still in my view is that the writers of the various sites forget that for the webrings to work you have to be able to find your way back to the webring links.

There are also pages around calling themselves webrings but they are not. They are simply a page of links to other sites and are not even reciprocal.

The List

I did a search for these new-style webrings and have so far found 113 of them. Most are for non-commerical, personal sites which is what webrings were originally made for. As the big webring systems have gone, it's just as easy to list the individual rings. I make no promises about this directory, just that when I visited them they were working.
