A static site webring.
OpenBooks is a webring focused on static sites - web pages hand-crafted by an individual rather than machine CMS code driven by machines.
The WebRing exists to showcase the personal, static web, as a modern - yet nostalgic - way to connect with the individual sharing their site with you, and to prove that that static websites are not a thing of the past. Personal pages have a place amongst the modern Web 2.0+ world.
Because the web should be personal again. The WebRing exists to showcase things made by people, not content curated to make money for the company providing you with a limited space and time to share it.
Join the ring:
Almost any site is welcome - as long as it's a static site. That means personal pages, blogs, a site about your pet, your trading card collection, your art porfolio, movie reviews, as long as you made it, it's welcome here.
There's no specific style or theme required - your site can be straight out of 1997 or blazing with CSS3 animations, as long as it's static and made by you. The only thing we do not allow is hateful content of any kind.
