Welcome to Elftown

There’s this online community called Elftown, where you can get a little online house, hang some pix, talk to like-minded folk about art, writing, the fantasy genre, whatever. Here’s their take on Elves.

If I’m not mistaken, the elf below is the model for Thyme2Dream’s jewelry! I tell you, it’s a small, elfy world, which is probably why they call it Elftown, and not New Elf City.

P.S. I Googled to see if there was a shorter term for “online community” (there doesn’t seem to be), and came across this somewhat interesting article in the Wall Street Journal: Why Most Online Communities Fail. This doesn’t really apply to Elftown, which is not a commercially based community. For something like Elftown, I think it’s just a matter of finding it in the that giant online sea.

    WOW- I hadnt discovered this one yet..I will have to go and set up house there soon. Have you heard of Faespace.com? Its a wonderfully fun place to be as well, you dont get a little house or anything, but there are a lot of fun and fanciful artists, writers and musicians there! Thanks for the mention about my shop too:-)!!!

    I’ll have to look at Faespace – thanks for the tip! But isn’t that your jewelry model on the Elf wiki page on Elftown? She’s moonlighting!
