I’ve been building a lot of Backdrop sites lately. Hooray! Most of these new Backdrop sites will belong to people who were previously the proud owners of a Drupal site. But every now and then, I get to work with people who don’t have any experience with Drupal at all.  “It’s very similar to Drupal” isn’t going to be a convincing argument if they don’t already know (and love) Drupal. These people want to see sites that have been built with Backdrop.

It’s high on our priority list to build a showcase of backdrop sites here on backdropcms.org. But since it takes considerably more time to add a new feature to the website than to write up a blog post...

Let’s start with the obvious: both backdropcms.org and api.backdropcms.org are both built with Backdrop CMS. But what else is out there? The following is our first list of sites that we know are running Backdrop.  We've included a few from the beginig of the alphabet, and a few from the end, just for giggles. Enjoy:
