Neocities.org and webrings are made for each other. Both Webring.com and Ringsurf.com appear to be malfunctioning when you try to join. Webringo.com works. If I were the owner of Webringo I’d try to get exposure on Neocities somehow.
Duckduckgo.com provides the site search to find Neocities hosted pages. They have done a good job.
There are some subjects that are better suited for a static site rather than a blog. In fact the content will probably get buried on a blog. Neocities is perfect for such micro-sites.
