If, like me, you grew up on the web in the 90's, you'll be very familiar with WebRings. You'll probably also be asking yourself: where did they go?

For those that don't know, webrings were created to link like-minded websites into one big loop. From one web site you could click the webring's Next button to be taken to the next site in the ring. Once you reached the end of the webring, you'd be taken back to the first site in the webring (hence the "ring" part).

It seems however that with the advent of efficient search engines and social networking sites, webrings were left behind in the cold. Nowadays search engines like Google and news aggregators like Technorati have become the standard for finding related content.

So in the spirit of 90's retro nostalgia, I've added a BlogEngine.NET webring link to my blog (you can find it just above the disclaimer). The ring which was started by Chris Blankenship (one of BlogEngine.NET's most avid fans and contributors) will hopefully become a link between all BlogEngine.NET community members. This ought to make locating BlogEngine.NET community members a breeze. Now lets just hope we can get this to catch on again ;)

You can join the web ring here: BlogEngine.NET WebRing
