Dedicated domains, one page, one function. Blogger Supercollider said it best when she said, “Cool idea, great execution. It’s the best kind of single-serving site: it does one thing, really well. No clutter or distraction.” So, whether they answer an important question, provide helpful advice, publish random displays or make pop culture references, we love single-serving websites. And not just the ones that are gimmicky, but useful too. What about you? Got the next great idea for a single-serving website? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and share your suggestions.
