Links: Blinkies

 

WARNING: All of these links contain blinking images. Some of the pages contain less blinking images than others, but if you are sensitive to flashing images, please exercise caution. I have noted websites with blinkies that may be particularly egregious to some viewers.

A note on these pages: All of these Tripod-hosted sites appear to have been abandoned since ‘07 at the latest, but the Tripod servers are still up, so most of the blinkies and links work. Be wary of clicking off-site links, as most of the linked sites are no longer online or the domains are parked/redirect to other sites.

http://blinkieobsession.freeservers.com/2/list.htm — Lots and lots of blinkies of various themes, some may be considered offensive to some people. Some pages may cause eyestrain. Many of the original blinkies I’ve seen in the archive and on the current web stem from this collection. This is an old website, not sure if this is still maintained. Exists in an archived form too, but many images are broken, so I am linking to the live page. Click the drop down list, select 1, and click go. You can click between pages by using the small arrows at the bottom fo each page.

https://donnasblinkies.tripod.com/ — Most are pregnancy-themed but under ‘misc’ there is a lot of variety, such as Western television shows, zodiac, location (I love Indiana/Scotland/etc.), and more.
