Simon Haynes put me on to Wonderlands, a network site for folks who are fans and/or writers of the fantasy genre.
It's got blogging capabilities (though I'll probably stay where I am--who needs more than one of these things to keep straight?) and a forum for discussing subjects pertinent to the genre. All in all, I'm impressed.
The site is uncluttered with ads and is easy to configure. I was able to quickly upload pictures and songs from my very own computer (No searching around for players or fighting license issues--this uploads licenses from your computer as well). Personally, I'm a big fan of any site that shortens the learning curve so that I can get on with simply decorating and setting up shop. If I want to build a webpage, I'll build a webpage--that's a totally different thing. Social Networking sites should all be this straight forward.
