Returned Peace Corps Volunteer WebRing


A Web ring (or Webring) is a way of interlinking related Web sites so that you can visit each site one after the other, eventually (if you keep going) returning to the first Web site. Typically, users can also elect to go backwards through the ring of sites, skip a certain number at a time, visit sites randomly, or see a list of all the sites on the ring. A ring is managed from one site which includes a common gateway interface (CGI) application that can select random sites and bypass sites that have dropped out or aren't reachable.

The ring idea seems to have caught on as a more dynamic alternative to the list of "favorite sites" that many Web sites offer. The originator of the idea, Sage Weil (now 19 and in college), started the first ring in May, 1995. With several collaborators, Sage has created WebRing, a Web ring management system. As of April, 1998, there were over 40,000 Web rings using the system.

There are Web rings on acrobatics, quilting, mermaids, the macabre, Spanish hotels, the Chevrolet, Dixieland, medieval studies, native American sites, and Winnie the Pooh. The largest number are on computer- and game-related subjects.

Go to the Peace Corps WebRing to look at the 91 Peace Corps related Web Sites which are already signed up. If you have a web site related to your Peace Corps experience, please consider adding it to the Peace Corps WebRing at:

Returned Peace Corps Volunteer WebRing

WebRing for current and Returned Peace Corps Volunteers. Websites are written by current and Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and tell about their experiences. Come and see where we have been!

Welcome to the home of the Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Web Ring

We all volunteered at different times, and worked in different countries, but we all have stories to tell...

If you'd like to be a part of the web ring, ask yourself these questions:

1. Am I a Current or Returned Peace Corps Volunteer?

2. Does my webpage contain information about my Peace Corps experience?

3. Am I willing to put the RPCV WebRing navigator and icon on my page?

If the answer to all three questions is 'yes', then fill out the form, and join the RPCV WebRing!

But don't worry - even if you can't be a member of the ring, you can still use this site to access members' pages.
