A community of writers, artists, and photographers who gather to share their common passion for the arts and revel in their own wonderful creativity. This is a multi national site which consequently displays a delightful variety of artistic perspectives.
The membership is supportive of each other in total, and ranges from the beginner to the expert. Feedback on artistic endeavors is diplomatically candid and encouraging. There are also very practical how-to/reference threads for all members to enhance their skills.
Broad ranging discussions of different artists and special community art projects also enhance this friendly site. Many gardens would do well to have this sort of Errant Vine.
Middle-earth Journeys originally started out as Tolkien Works on Viggo-Works. This small but packed Tolkien board discusses all things in the Tolkien literary world. Some of its forums include individual book discussions, trivia, Tolkien in the news, Tolkien art and scholarly discussions as well.
Also found there is a large reference links page that can satisfy anyone who wishes to learn more about Tolkien's work, artists who create Middle-earth images and scholarly links for the hardcore Tolkien fans.
All levels of Tolkien knowledge are welcome at Middle-earth Journeys and we encourage questions from anyone to spark conversations. Please join us on Arda and you just might find yourself wanting to stay.
Writer and activist Arianna Huffington's poltically charged website full of progressive political news and home to one of the best blogs in the business.
Huffington is elquent in her own right and attracts some of top notch writers and thought provoking topics. A complete news page and blog section make this website far more interesting than most. Complete archives and a comments section as well. Be warned...the comments may range from well thought out...to heated opposition...to down right rude.
Never a dull moment.
This website is a delightfully progressive breath of fresh air in a world where the media all too often spins news and opinions at the whim of the political power machines with little thought given to truth and unbiased reporting.
With the media often marching in lock step with government spin doctors, here is news and opinion that legitimately challenges the rightness of policy and the correctness of actions. It is eye opening reporting based on solid investigative research. Extensive links afford the reader the opportunity to take advantage of any acquired energy and focus...and turn them into constructive actions.
What sets this website apart is its unpretentious reporting. No frills...just the writers and the thought processes and the words. While the contents of the messages at CommonDreams.org may make your blood boil...whatever your political persuasion...you will certainly come away stimulated, and hopefully armed with information that moves you to practical and positive political action.
