This is an interesting site for discovering independent, non-commercial blogs. Clicking "Walk the Forest" sends you to a random blog in their index. "Plant a Tree" allows you to submit a blog for review.

This is really cool. I think that while webrings are great for discovering new blogs, they do have a tendency to create echo chambers, and within a few minutes of playing with this, I had found several interesting blogs and pages on topics I would never have thought to look at. Thanks for sharing! :D

Found an interesting site while taking a walk in the forest, Nightfall City. It's essentially just a link aggregator, but with a nice aesthetic and theme to it. A lot of the links are also available on gemini.

oh hey I remember seeing your blog post a couple weeks ago on my RSS feed. Recently I've been going through some of the links on Yesterlinks. One of my favorite links on there is the web design museum. It's essentially a screenshot gallery of some notable sites throughout the years, and gives you an idea of common web design patterns that were popular during various web eras.

The webmaster at Nightfall CIty also runs an interesting little blog service:

It gives you a blog with http, gemini, and gopher support. Seeing Nightfall reminds me that I have one and should update it...

This is a great resource. There are quite a few on here I had not heard of before. I'm adding to my bookmarks so I can work through them later. Of the ones I have used, Ye Olde Blogroll is good and regularly updated with new blogs.
