Blogger, Blogga! Bloggrrr


BLOCONIC

Great Article that just had to be shared. I just wish I had seen it two months ago when it was originally written.

Personally, I haven’t blogged in forever. In part, because my RL has become very busy and thankfully very fulfilling. In part, because I had become so discouraged with SL life in general – drama between creators, increases in theft of creative content, LL rules which hindered creators and residents in general, and finally everywhere I turned someone was calling them self a blogger and so many were just completely disappointing quality or not providing any details or information about products that I could use to support talented creators.

Being a blogger was amazingly time consuming when doing it right. Sometimes posts took me as much as a couple of weeks to do the way I wanted and include all the details. I have overwhelming respect for bloggers who not only blog thoroughly but blog regularly. Thanks to all of you who fit this category. And finally thanks to Sasy, both for writing this blog and saying what needed to be said for a long time and for being one of my idols / role models / friends / inspiration.

Sasy, you are BLOCONIC – that is an iconic blogger. You set the standard for any new blogger to aspire to be. I don’t know what I would do, if you ever decide to retire. Hopefully, I never have to find out. Thanks for inspiring me. Maybe I will return to blogging; maybe I won’t. In any case, when or if I do, I will do my best to remember all your wise words of wisdom when sharing my pieces with my readers.

Blogger Blogga Bloggrrr

EDIT: This rant is specifically focused on Fashion Blogging

In the 8 years I have been an Second Life Resident, only a few months of that time was I not blogging. I didn’t start out Fashion Blogging right away, I actually didn’t know that existed as a thing until I was already in world 4 months, but I was blogging pretty regularly on my own blog. Then I discovered ‘Appearance Mode” I have told this story a few times, and how I had so much inventory from shopping everyday and working, that I started blogging daily.

If you think I am wordy now, there are older residents that can attest that how I blog now is barely a blurb by comparison. I loved it, was incredibly passionate about it, and looked at it as a way to contribute to this amazing community.

This post is a rant, a big one…

The 5th Annual Home & Garden Expo

HOME EXPO 2012 SIGN TEXTURE

HOME EXPO 2012

The 5th Annual Home & Garden Expo benefiting Relay For Life of Second Life, part of a fundraising campaign for the American Cancer Society, has less than 12 hours left. It close at tonight 10pm SLT, May 28th and covers 14 Sims with all kinds of amazing home and garden & breedables wonderfulness. That wonderfulness will include everything from prefabs and furniture to flowers and swimming pools not to mention living, breathing, breeding creatures from a mix of well-known and some not so well-known creators. There is actually a really impressive list of 1s and second level event sponsors this year, and I would strongly encourage you to make sure you visit before the opportunity is up. You can find a list those sponsors here: http://slhomeandgardenexpo.wordpress.com/expo-sponsors/.

One of this years biggest sponsors has become near and dear to my heart as it is one of my most recent SL addictions, one which I never thought I would succumb, Breedables! Yes, it is true, I am just starting to raise KittyCatS. Breedables. You have probably noticed several of my cats in recent pictures and those sprinkled through this article, and they aren’t the only breedables there this year. There is so much to see I will barely even be able to touch on any of this, but here goes. So don’t waste time reading all the details of the article. Glance over the pictures and then run for the Expo before it is too late. Check out the official website, http://slhomeandgardenexpo.wordpress.com, for all the details of maps and TP points.

All the Exhibitors is selling two original exclusive-to-the-Home-Expo items, the sales of which are earmarked for Relay For Life.  These items are new to the grid, making their first appearance in the SL market at the Expo.  The price of these items are set by the designers and every penny will go to RFL.  After the Expo ends, creators are free to continue selling the items in their main stores, if they so choose. Some of the creators are also participating in the event Hunt. The items will be hidden around the 13 sims at each participating exhibitors display. This is NOT a free hunt – Hunters pay a fee for each hidden object that is donated to RFL.  For more info, those interested in hunting can visit the Expo Hunt  info page. There is also the RAFFLE FOR RELAY! you can still get in on. Lots of awesome prizes, including some valued at more than 10k each!  Daily & Grand Finale Drawings. No need to be present to win Expo Fair Entertainment (19,97,23).

If you are looking for the Breedables Sims they are tucked in between sims 13 and 9 in the middle of the square of sims. You can find the relay for life donation KittyCatS there at two locations. The first is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife//216/91/23 and the second location is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/RFL%20Breedables%20Fair/141/88/23. The four shown below are my four little babes. They are SteamPunk Nickel (♂), SteamPunk Nicki(♀), SteamPunk Goldie(♀), and SteamPunk Golden(♂). Each one is 1K L and the entire amount goes to RFL. If you have been thinking about getting into KittyCats, this is a great place to start.

KC&KS features a wide range of stores including furniture, apparel, animations, houses, and more. All participating stores will have one (or more) brand new, exclusive, never to be sold again item(s) placed in their stores. It’s NOT a discount event, items will be full price. It’s also NOT a charity event, all the money will go straight to the designers. This event is aimed purely at supporting Second Life® designers and the money they earn goes towards creating new and amazing items for all of us Second Life consumers. This money goes to things like upload costs, paying land rent/ tier, software and resource costs, and for some even helps cover their real life bills.

There are some rules the creators have to abide by:

* Items must be excellent quality.
* May have up to 5 items.
* All items must be brand new (not recolours of existing items) and must not be sold after the event.
* Items must be full price, it’s not a discount event!

Piddler’s Perch and their free gift for the Homestuff  group members

This Corona Moment Looking Forward

This Corona Moment Looking Forward

It’s lazy days like these that make me not want to leave my home in SL, just spend all my time fixing it up, inviting friends over, and hanging out there. Thank goodness I have help in figuring out how I am going to fix it up, because there is a new group just for this purpose, and, based on the track record of the group organizers, it promises to be a good one. The Homestuff  group is brought to you by Ivy Maverick and Rob1977 Moonites, the organizers of Menstuff and Womenstuff. The group launched March 28, 2012 and designers are invited to fill out the application, if they have home related products and wish to participate as a designer in the group. So far more than 20 creators have taken them up on this invite and placed gifts out in the lounge for collection by group members. The above scene is one of the free gifts that the group members are eligible to get simply for being a member. It’s from Piddler’s Perch and below is the view from the front of the same perch.

This Corona Moment Front View

This Corona Moment Front View

The gift, the Fun in the Sun deck set, is quite elaborate and includes the deck, two torches on the deck posts (touch on and off), the two palm tree cluster and shadows, two chairs (each with multiple male and female poses driven by an easy to use touch menu), the table, the 3 candle cluster (touch on and off), and the ice cooler of beers. I know the name was fun in the sun, but I just couldn’t resist shooting the pics at dusk / night so that you could see how lovely it looks when you use the built-in lighting. Rowan Attis, the creator of Piddler’s Perch is not just an exceptional creator, capable of setting an adorable scene, she is thorough, generous and approachable. She strives to make her work better at any opportunity and welcomes comments or questions from her customers. I actually had a question about the freebie and honestly didn’t expect much because it was a free item, but not only did she respond, she treated me to first rate customer service and took the time to make sure that all the issues I had were addressed and taken care of to my satisfaction. If that is the sort of caliber of designers this group is attracting, I can’t wait to see more.

Homestuff Logo

Now for those of you who just want to join the group and take advantage of the benefits such as the adorable freebies like the one shown in this blog, you can do so by joining the Homestuff group in world. You can pick up the free gifts once you are a member at the SLSTUFF LOUNGE http://slurl.com/secondlife/Gizza%20Creations%20II/21/16/72, and you’ll find more information about the group and the creators that are part of it on the Homestuff home page. There will be more blogs posted there soon as they get the staff up and going for the blog. I also will be expecting a pretty awesome Homestuff Hunt one day to go along with the amazing ones already thrown by the organizers. Keep your eyes out for more information on Homestuff.

Keep Calm and Keep Shopping


DON’T Step Away from those adorable new items…

keep calm and keep shopping

Keep Calm and Keep Shopping May 14th to May 28th

The Keep Calm and Keep Shopping event is a two week event featuring some of the most fantastic stores in Second Life! They’ll have a wide range of stores including furniture, apparel, animations, houses etc. All participating stores will have one (or more) brand new, exclusive, never to be sold again item(s) placed in their stores. You know what that means … no extra laggy event locations. The items will be spread out all over and you will be able to experience the stores in their entirety not just a sample of their wares.

This not a discount event, items will be full price. It’s also not a charity event, all the money will go straight to the designers. It’s just an event with some amazing creations.

The idea behind this is exposure and exclusive items, because the creators of the event feel we need more events that are aimed purely at Second Life designers. The money they earn goes towards creating new and amazing items for us (the consumers of SL), paying land rent/ tier, and for some even helps cover their real life bills. It’s time to say thank you to all the fabulous creators that make Second Life the way it is today, they don’t get thanked enough!

The event runs from May 14th until May 28th. All participating stores will be listed on the blog along with their slurls. There’s an inworld group for shoppers and a separate one for designers and bloggers! For more info, rules, links to applications and all other information please check the website! http://keepcalmandkeepshopping.blogspot.co.uk/. Bloggers and Designers get your applications in NOW! And everyone else get ready for some amazing, once in a Second Life opportunities.

Thank you for reading and we now return you to your regularly scheduled reading and shopping tasks.

‘My Attic” Is Open To The Public


You are all invited to ‘My Attic”, an event hosted by The Deck sim, and its owner, Sasy Scarborough. It starts today March 21st and ends on March 31st. The theme this session is “Summer Abroad 1955-1960” and all items are 95L for the duration of the event, and will then go to regular store prices afterwards. I personally grabbed almost everything there.
Here’s the SLURL to the place and if you are lucky you might even catch some of your favorite creators / designers hanging out on the back Deck …. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/The Deck/88/185/21.

Hanging out on the back Deck at My Attic

Hanging out on the back Deck at My Attic

So in the picture are a few creators who are participating just chilling on the back deck of the event talking to folks who wander in. From left to right: That’s me in the beehive and Maitreya Jackie O glasses on the left, next to me is Whimsy Winx (creator of W.Winx Home & Garden), then Sasy Scarborough (blogger extraordinaire and sim proprietor / promoter), then Helyanwe Vindaloo (creator of all kinds of amazing things at .ploom.), then Ashia Tomsen (amazing skin creator of Idiosyncrasy), and last but not least the solo man in the group, Kavar Cleanslate (Exile creator) who has been making some incredible hairs, its no wonder he has a “Hair”em of women around him. Everyone here but me adds something of value to the sale.

::Exile:: She Loves You :: Maarone & Idiosyncrasy Audrey - Vintage Natural LB

::Exile:: She Loves You :: Maarone & Idiosyncrasy Audrey - Vintage Natural LB

Several of us are sporting items from the event as well. Sasy has on the dress by Maitreya and we both have on the glasses, and the the exile hair (although not the hair I have on in the group pic), I have on the Idiosyncrasy skin as well, Hely has on the hair from .ploom. and the dress from DKNY (the dress comes with a matching sun hat and basket, too). Now just to be clear. This is not my attic, that is just the name of the event, “My Attic”. So don’t get confused and think all these cool people are selling their stuff at my place or hanging out on my deck … this is all Sasy‘s doing. The stores involved:

Adorkable Poses
Chelle Makeup (Special Guest)
Cracked Mirror
DCNY Clothing and Accessories
EMO-tions Hair
Exile Hair (Special Guest)
Frou Frou Hair
Idiosyncrasy Skins
Maitreya Clothing and Accessories
Miel Accessories
Mina Hair
Ploom Hair and Poses
The Strand Hair and Accessories
W.Winx Home & Garden
