If you're into Doll Houses, Toy Soldiers or Model Trains, then you're probably no stranger to the search engine called My Miniatures.com. My Miniatures is an online community and vertical portal, which is a topic-specific search engine; type in "furniture" and it searches only for miniature doll house furniture. The miniature search engine currently has in its database links to nearly 2000 doll house or miniature related sites, more than 200 miniature clubs, and numerous show listings.
My Miniatures.com is an online community free to its visitors filled with links, galleries, show listings and classified ads.
Why is it so safe? There are no logins, so personal information is never gathered or resold. Every site is reviewed before its listed, and existing sites are randomly reviewed for compliance often.
"When I have done an online search for "doll house" and I would get adult content, and that's just not acceptable. It's almost evil to take an innocent toy's name and attach that type of content to it where they must know children will find it. We only have doll house and miniature sites in our database, so our visitors can feel safe here," says Michelle Blohm, who is the founder of the site.
When asked about her favorite doll house type, Michelle says, "I just love a three-story Victorian wooden doll house in 1/12 scale that's electrified and wallpapered, but I respect all creations made in small scales. There is an old time magic you feel that is breathtaking. You peer into a small-scale scene, and turn the tiny lights on; you are transformed into a small child again. It's very magical."
Site categories include: Artisans, Houses & Structures, Kits & Patterns, Merchant Sites, Miniature Dolls, Miniature Militaria, Model Railroads, Museums, News Groups, Organizations, Photo Galleries, Polymer Clay, Private Collections, Project Pages, Publications/Books, Resources/Services, Show Promoters, Special Scale, Supplies/Tools and Tiny Teddy Bears. There are also helpful areas to find Clubs, Events, classified items and message boards for help topics.
Advertising is available to doll house site owners and doll house stores through banner ads, premium listings that have a bold font and bring the advertiser to the top of any category, all at affordable rates to fit "miniature" budgets.
The My Miniatures staff is dedicated to bringing safe web surfing to doll house and miniature enthusiasts and pointing these miniaturists to websites, quality doll house collectable pieces and photo galleries in an effort to keep the hobby alive for generations to come.
The site was developed as a Performance Portal by Performance Sites, Inc., Boca Raton, Florida on the web at http://www.performancesites.com.
