This is an excellent site for both readers and writers.
This is my main site, home to my work and my wife's artwork, much of which is executed on themes we both enjoy, such the occult, Aleister Crowley, Thelema, Magick and so on. There really is some stunning and unique artwork here - check it out.
Uh-oh. I don't frequent many sites online in regard to writing. Only in regard to art and painting. The websites I research in the writing line are more practical - looking for agents or publishers and opportunities to get published (especially in the field of travel writing).
I generally don't in the writing field. I rely on friends who can't help themselves and write whenever the feeling takes them.
Lately I have found a very fine website based upon peer review of new writings: http://www.youwriteon.com/ they also have a fine forum for interaction outside of our offerings - very supportive people.
I often join in the Lulu.com forums.
I'm a Facebook addict - I've got some connections with fellow writers and that's always helpful. But I try to stay away from online forums and discussions because of my sense of "justice". It's hard to explain, but I get very upset when I see people treated badly in an online environment - and this happens quite often. Of course then I want to jump in and play defense and that's not helpful for a reputation, especially for a new author. Technology has given us some of our greatest triumph - and probably sends some poor souls into complete despair. That's why I "hide" from online attention.

I tend to hang out on Myspace, and talk to other writers, etc.

I belong to backspace, and have done since it's conception. It is a truly awesome resource for writers.

I also twitter - but can't quite get to grips with how that's supposed to work!
I communicate by email with friends who are writers as well as writer's groups that I belong to such as Sisters-in-Crime and Romance Writer's of America.
A good on-line site for information in regard to writer's services, publishers, or agents is http:www/hipiers.com.
I'm most frequently on Gather.com and Squidoo.com, but I pop in and out of Facebook, MySpace, Goodreads, Shelfari, LibraryThing, and WritersCafe. And my own blog, A. F. Stewart's Blog.
None. I have found them to be unproductive and, in the main, unhelpful.
I frequent sites with writing tips, or sites where I can read what others have written on their blogs.
