Creating a Bookmark List

In response to “The Small Website Discoverability Crisis” by Viktor Lofgren I’m making a list of bookmarks to small sites that I find interesting.

However, “interesting” does not necessarily mean I’m agreeing with everything you might find on these blogs / sites. Indeed maybe I like reading some of these because they challenge what I think.

As Lofgren wrote:

It’s a bit strange, almost nobody seems to be doing this. Looking through a sample of personal websites, very few of them has links to other personal websites. A hyperlink isn’t a marriage proposal. It is enough to find some redeeming quality in a website to link to it. It costs nothing, and helps bring traffic to pages that you yourself think deserve it.

I used to do that on older personal websites starting in the late 1990s and in old blogs. But I suppose like most people that faded away in the past ten years. Plus you have to check the links once in a while because people (or at least their websites) fall off the map often.

But let’s give it a shot. I don’t know how often I’ll maintain this but it’s better than nothing.

I’ll put them on the appropriately named page, Bookmarks.
