It’s been fun!
After 11 years, Glitter Web Directory is closing its doors.
We have had a blast running the directory. Seeing all the great websites featuring blogs, creative endeavors, communities, graphics, and resources. Making new friends along the way, expanding our own skills through maintaining the website: all of it has been invaluable. We will greatly miss running this directory.
We do not take the decision lightly to close down. In the early 2000s, directories such as this exploded in popularity, but over the years they have slowly been dying out. As people have found other ways to get their websites seen, through social media and communities such as BlogLovin’, among others, there hasn’t been as much need for directories like Glitter.
We are also, sadly, no longer the early-20-somethings with extra free time to dedicate to maintaining the directory. Between furthering our education, moving to new places, traveling, exploring impending family life, there just isn’t the proper time to dedicate to a quality project like Glitter.
And so we have decided to close it down. We will keep up a list of active web directories (to the left) so visitors may still find a place to go if they’d like to be listed or find other websites.
We will miss Glitter!
