It would be nice if there was a revival of HTML sites. I suspect most people will continue to use blogs. But sometimes a static site is more appropriate when you have a finite amout of things to say on a subject and then you are done, when you don’t want to be posting every month, or be bothered updating the blog script, the theme the plugins all the time.
BTW I did list your Dylan site in the directory a couple of weeks back. I think under Entertainment >> Music if I remember right. I hope that’s okay.
