This link page has been a work in progress for so long over half of the original links are no longer valid. Sadly, while some things on the internet are forever, some things (like personal sites/blogs) are temporary.

Despite this, I still think it's important to share websites that you enjoy with others. I miss the days of web-rings and link pages because it was a way to find things that Google doesn't slap on the first page when you do a search. Now, in a day when blogs and personal websites seem to be a dying breed, it can be difficult to find other websites that aren't ad-ladden or coporately created to generate income. The type of sites I tend to favor are personal little spots on the internet where people just share what they love.

This list is always a work in progress and will probably never be compelete. In a way, it's my own little link archive where I just dump random sites I find interesting or want to research a bit more without cluttering up my browswer bookmarks.

With that being said, anyone who'd like to exchange links can feel free to get in touch with me and I'll happily add your site.

One of the thing that stands out when I think back to the early web design is the fan pages that existed. It seemed like everyone and their mother had a fan page dedicated to some TV show, most likely from the following list: Dawson's Creek, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Charmed, Roswell, or The X-Files. These pages were full of love, strange graphics, and all sorts of crazed fandom. I watched Charmed and Dawson's Creek, but the other shows I came to admire later in life after these websites were old news. So a hobby of mine is to perform some digital archeaology and dig up the bones of these old fansites and explore what the author admired about the show, was thinking, or writing. Sadly, pretty much all of these sites died between 1997-2003, but parts of them remain as a snapshot of pop culture for all to see if you know where to look.

Below is a sort of directory for old websites still online. I'll slowly be organizing them by topic and adding more as I come across them. I also plan to save some graphics and other design elements as sort of a tribute to these past fansites. They may not look like much now, but at one time, these sites were important parts of people's lives. I hope by shining some light onto some of these, I can honor the sites and the hard work that went into creating them.
