Random Sites Worth Sharing
It's time, once again, to clean up my bookmarks. I thought I'd share some interesting links that I've run across and maybe don't want to lose but also don't feel the need to have saved in my browser.
Lemmy – This is an open source federated take on reddit. It has potential and I'll be watching this and visiting every now and again.
Sijmen's List of Text Only Websites – This page is great. It's a list of websites that are text only (and some that are near text only. I think we need more text only websites on the web.
Bear Blog, Midnight, Listed.to – These are three blogging platforms that take privacy serious. Right now, I don't see much of a need for me to have an account for any of these, but I love that there are alternatives popping up. I also love that all three sites have a Discovery feed of some sort so I can read browse posts similar to Read.Write.as.
Bundyology – I ran across this Married with Children fan site a few weeks back and fell in love with it. It was created in 1997 and last updated in 2015, but pretty much anything you'd want to know about Married with Children can be found on this site. I love the simple HTML design and am so glad its still online.
WeatherDaddy – I grew up getting my weather news from The Weather Channel back when it all it did was report on the weather. WeatherDaddy uses the classic fonts and graphics from the 90's Weather Channel and presents them in an easy to use website. I've used this as my main source of weather information for several years until the site mysteriously went down late last year. I was shocked to stumble back upon it and see that it was up and running.
The Movie Database – I have spent countless hours on IMDB over the years. It's one of my “go-to” sites and I hate how Amazon is slowly ruining it. I wanted to find an alternative outside of the Amazon/Google world and that brought me to TMDb. So far, I'm loving it and it looks so much better on mobile.
