I've just started to rebuild my personal website as a 3D resource site. The links-section has a blender specific area. I'm going to try to get almost anything and everything 3D-related in there

My website:
http://www.technogremlin.org

Direct link to the links-section:
http://www.technogremlin.org/modules/mylinks/

Direct link to the Blender-specific area:
http://www.technogremlin.org/module...ewcat.php?cid=1

I'm just starting to fill the links section from my own bookmarks (several hundreds) so the Blender specific area has just a few links for now.
