I Heart Blogs is a pretty cool site with a lot of potential. Too bad it hasn’t been updated in several months. It’s a gallery especially for blogs (variety of platforms). Even though it hasn’t been updated recently, the archives can still provide some inspiration.
WPcube is another WordPress-specific gallery. It hasn’t been updated in few weeks, but hopefully more will be coming, because the site already has a nice archive.
LoopPress is a showcase of beautiful WordPress websites, blogs and themes. Decent archives, but not updated very frequently.
