Anyway, while I thought they were probably something on the internet whose time had long since passed, I thought to myself... "What the heck? Even if it just gets me a tiny trickle of people, it isn't like it is going to hurt me or anything."
Man, I was just on a whim brousing through some of the other pages on that webring... What a blast from the past! Most of the sites I had come across look like they were last updated no later then 2005, many of them even earlier then that. And, of course, in internet terms that is ancient history.
It was somewhat nostalgic... Remember the days when many people thought that all of the content you needed for a successful website was a lot of pretty pictures and some flashy buttons that do nothing? Yeah, that is what a lot of the sites I came across were like. I definitely got a feeling of, "I remember when the internet used to look like that! Wow..." Huh... I'm old.
I never did like webpages that were all style (especially if it was a style of, "gaudy lack of style") and no substance... Even back in the mid '00s (or even earlier when you consider that the original version of this website dates back to the late '90s!) Back in the beginning, I tried to make this site something different. Of course, I suppose it helped that I actually had content to put on the site. Hopefully, visitors will agree that it is still a good one.
Anyway, not sure if I am going to stay affiliated with that webring... I suppose, as stated above, it isn't hurting me... Still, not sure if it will do much in the way of helping, either. If you're reading this and did manage to find this site through it, say hello!
But yeah... If I don't see much of an impact from it... I suspect I might just make the webring's presence on this website quietly disapear...
