I too find most social networking boring and ultimately intolerable. The only other ones I visit with some regularity are beard-related--a beard community forum and The Society of Bearded Gentlemen, using the same platform as TA. This one, unlike the others, however, allows for some stimulating discussion and the sharing, critiquing, etc. of creative work.
Hey Joshua. Welcome to TA.
If you need anything, don't hesitate to drop me an email.
I hope you find what you are looking for here....if you are looking for anything at all.
It's really a great community. Glad to have you aboard.
