Rebooting IrishBlogs.com

I’ve had the domain irishblogs.com for over a decade, since 2004 to be precise. It was, up until very recently, a rather rudimentary link directory. When I first put the site online I used to spend time and energy looking after it, along with many of the other sites I was running at the time. […]
