You've survived the writing workshop. It's time to relax. Kick back with the Beverage of Your Choice, pick your favorite seat on the carousel or by the fire or create one in the garden... enjoy hanging out on the WritingChat list. And, as long as you're a member of the list
Welcome to the WritingChat Webring
The WritingChat Webring links the members -- past, present, intermittent, and in quantum flux -- of the WritingChat email list, a Virtual Hangout for writers After the Workshop.
If you are a websurfer, you do not need to keep backtracking to a link page or search page to find the next site of interest: starting from any one site in a ring, you can click "next" to visit another site on the same subject -- or any of the links in a standard navigation box. The same set of navigation links is found on every site in the ring, so you can't get lost.
If you are a site owner, you do not have to maintain a list of links, adding, changing, and deleting everytime your friends move their sites around the web. Once you install the standardized webring links, webring.org will maintain the record of where those links point to. The network of sites you are linked to expands more and more, and you never have to update your link page!
If you want to know more (far, far more!) take a look at James S. Huggins' Refrigerator Door.
If you feel overwhelmed by all that -- apply anyway. Let me see your site and talk it over with you. Let's make the hangout grow, even if we have to knock down a few walls. :)
The next step will be filling out an application form. In the URL entry on this form, enter the page you will put the ring code on, or a page that is clearly linked from there, with "webrings" in the name of the link.
For more details on the new system, see James Huggins' FAQ.
In order for your site to work as part of the webring, you must have navigation links so that visitors can get to the rest of the sites in the ring. If I accept your site into the ring, you will still be in "suspended" status until you have webring navigation code posted.
Some people still prefer to use the all-HTML navbar. To get the HTML navbar, follow the above steps, but when you get to the page displaying the SSNB code, scroll to the bottom and click the word "here" at the end of the sentence "Members who wish to use the HTML version of this nav bar should go here."
The code is customized for your webpage. If your webpage address or any other site information (including your email address) changes, please update your entry! The magic of webring cannot work without your help.
James Huggins has absolutely the best, most up-to-date and readable information on webrings that there is. If you have any further questions, or you're just curious about webrings, I recommend his pages.
