Do you know of any free artist or writer websites with community interaction?
I'm looking for good artist and writer websites that aren't mere portfolio sharing websites. I belong to one artist website with an active community, and I'd really like to find other social outlets. I'm an artist, writer, and poet who works from home in a small town without much in the way of social interaction among us creative types. When I searched for information about artist websites on Hubpages, the websites mentioned were either no longer up or charged fees.I'd love to find a website for writers of fiction and poetry as well.
Red Bubble is a good site to take a look at. It's free. I've never interacted with its members, but I know a number of colleagues who sell their artwork there.
This is the best platform I've ever joined with such encouraging and supportive writers. However, do you sell your art? ETSY is a selling website for artists and handmade stuff. They have some forums where artists get together and chat, but I don't think they have a separate writing platform like HP.
Deviant Art is probably the largest community of artists I've ever found. The site runs through all the different art styles and mediums, and even covers quite a few writing genres as well. With the groups and forums, it's also pretty interactive with fellow (and famous) artists. Another one I use is Renderosity, though that one focuses more on 3D digital rendering than traditional art projects.

How reliable are websites that offer free hosting and free domain name?I have websites on weebly.com for free and they are doing fine. But what about other free hosting? Are they search engine friendly? Does making your site on a paid hosting get you more traffic?
