Links and webrings

Plenty of people online these days are complaining about the bubble effect and the algorithm. I'm not in the mood to write about my thought on the matter, sorry. What I am in the mood to talk about though, is solutions to the problem.

Solution number one is get yourself a personal site and start sharing content you like and more specifically start linking to sites and content you find interesting. That's what the internet was made for after all. And in that spirit I'm going to link a few things down below:

Solution number two is embrace randomness. As you may or may not know I run a small project called The Forest where you can get random sites suggested to you. But it's far from being the only site of that kind. indieblog.page is another good one. Or if you're in a silly mood give theuselessweb.com a try. Another thing you can consider, if you're after new content to enjoy, is browsing websites directories. And last but not least, you can explore webrings! If you scroll down at the very bottom of this page—down in the footer, after the archive—you'll notice two arrows. Those are links to other sites that are part of the IndieWeb Webring. But the IndieWeb one is just one of the countless webrings available out there. I'll leave you with links to a few of them here but feel free to suggest others.
