Personal Sites and Blogs
A.N. Lucas' Web Lounge
Late-90s aesthetic on the web done right. Contains a huge cache of 88x31 buttons.
One more shift ought to do it.
Another neat and aesthetical personal site made by a good-hearted person. I like their music reviews.
(Note: site may look funky in Chrome.)
This site is like a modern search engine, except all the results are hand-picked from websites made from scratch. Lots of good links here.
This guy has an entire section of his site devoted to reviewing old websites that are still online. That should be more than enough to get you to visit.
A simple guestbook.
I like this guy for their Windows 95 UI writings. And their AOL discoveries. And other such articles.
Lots of cool stuff on here. There's an entire section on here dedicated to the old game "Petz."
Lily's Flower Garden
The cute website of a cute background pony on the internet!!
A nice, pleasant home page with links to cool color-cycling graphics from an obscure Windows 3.1 program.
Cool mid-2000s personal homepage design! I also love all the habbo stuff and music video gifs, hah!
Cute modern website owned by a cool content creator.
Matthew Furman On-Line
This site feels like it's from 1999, but it's from 2009. Still being updated. There are a lot of sub-sites.
Pink space. A cute personal homepage with photography, writings, and more.
Cool person who does art-y things, and very internet-y things.
A really cool space-themed site. Lots of neat colorful pixel graphics are within here.
A very cutesy website that contains many different shrines and articles to different niches, as well as a series about this person's journey through the Internet when they were young.
(Note: navigation may not work on Firefox.)
A coooooooool bean with a somewhat brutalist website.
The BEST tribute to the 90's web I've EVER seen, holy crap! It's so big the scrolling even lags my computer! (sort of)
I honestly don't know how to explain this one. It's some guy's portfolio too.
I feel this guy. I know what he's been through.
An indie netcollage that's been up since the late 90s. There's a bunch of cool sections in here. One of my favorite antique websites.
The Soviet Union is history. Who's next?
A sort of HTML5 'operating system' that's sort of like Windows 95? It's really cool to mess around with, that's for sure.
Other Neat Places on the Web
Random Tilde Page
Don't know where else to go? Use this link that takes you to a random tilde page on any tilde box!
A blog finding websites that haven't updated in ages and are still up! Ironically, the blog itself hasn't been updated in a while and is still up. You have a feeling this WEBSITE is TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING.
404 Research Lab
A website that collects A WHOLE BUNCH of cool 404 pages! Used to go on this site quite a bit back when I was a wee lad.
One of my FAVORITE animation portals of all time. Updating since 2004.
The Chickenstreet Project
The spiritual successor to Mr. Wong's Soupartments! (See below.)
A place to read, write, discuss, and socialize. Since 1999. Basically a proto-Wikipedia/Medium/whatever.
Ezn's Writing Guide
Originally written for people who write FiM fanfiction, this writing guide applies to anyone who wants to improve their writing, whether they're writing a TwilightxSunset fanfic or not.
A very 95-styled website with loads of links to cool software and other stuff.
Ishkur's Guide To Electronic Music
Created sometime in the early 2000s, before post-internet electronic genres were a thing (e.g. vaporwave, witch house, EDM, etc), one man named Ishkur set out to graph all the different genres and subgenres that made up (pretty much) the entirety of electronic music. AND THE RESULT IS FREAKING AMAZING. Seriously. This is one of those sites where the first time around you THINK you've seen all the content, but then you come back six months later and you find something you actually missed. (It'll happen about two or three times with this site.) It's freakin' fantastic and I hope it stays online forever. Go get lost in the copious amounts of music nichery!
Mermeliz's Comic Chat Page
Download Comic Chat, Comic Chat characters, and other program downloads right here on this page!
Mr. Wong's Soup'Partments
A HUGE pixelart tower collaboration worked on by hundreds of pixelartists! Still one of the tallest pixel towers on the internet!*
*unless you count Habbo Hotel
Nathan's Toasty Technology Page
An old, still-updating tech site that has a GUI gallery, and a page describing how much Internet Explorer sucks (well, sucked before Edge came along and made it better.)
A site that goes into detail of all the forgotten PC games of the 90s and late 80s! It's kind of amazing how much games and game songs get forgotten.
One Terabyte of Kilobyte Age
A blog describing all the quirks of the old web and the Geocities torrent. A great read.
Huge podcast network of mostly-tech-oriented podcasts, but there's some other stuff in there too.
Old site I used to go on. I love their computer stupidities.
Assorted text files from the early days of the internet. Contains lots of sub-sites and the creator (Jason Scott) is a great archivist ho believes in making copies of everything on the internet, basically. A cool thing to look at if you want to know what the internet was like before the WWW became popular.
The Theresa Duncan CD-ROM collection
An old set of children's CD-ROMs you can emulate instantly in your browser. They're very colorful and like nothing I've ever seen before.
My friend's podcast!! Join Ted and Elise in their quest to read every Wikipedia article ever, one random article button at a time.
Similar to textfiles, but more concise. Quotes and memories from the pre-WWW/Web 1.0 internet (about 1980-94). Great to read when you're bored.
Cool Creative Tools
A MUST-HAVE resource if you're a graphic designer. Never leave home without it, kids. Contains links to font sites, graphics sites, brushes, and so much more.
Same as above.
