July was a busy month with lots of new features and changes.
Stumblizer – In July I cobbled together a random website finder, sorta like the old StumbleUpon. This has turned out to be surprisingly popular. There must be a lot of bored people out there. I keep adding a few new websites to the Stumblizer index when I find something that fits with the theme.
Directory Stumble – This is another random site finder like Stumblizer (above) only filled with different types of directories. It would appear that not everyone is as enamored of directories as I am since it gets almost no use. *sigh* It was an experiment and just never took off. But it is unique. Still, I’ll keep it up because, you never know, somebody, someday, might enjoy it.
Retroweb Ring – Our new webring has gotten steady interest and I invite you to join.
Webmaster Page – I added a page listing various free things and guides we have for webmasters.
Changed Weblogs Category – Weblogs was always the category for personal blogs so it made sense to move it from under Internet to being under Personal Pages. Like this: Personal Pages > Weblogs.
Made a button – W00t. I made a button for Indieseek. You can see it on our Link to Us page. It’s not fancy but it’s a button. I used Sadgrl’s Button Maker and the excellent Online Converter to convert the image from png to gif.
Added a bunch of directories.
We got listed in – Smooth Sailings Listings , List-Me and Link Lane Listings. These directories may be small but are well established and have already sent traffic.
Turned off Comments on individual Link Listings – only one or two people have ever left comments besides me since we started in 2018 so best to turn them off.
That’s the roundup for July.
