Cutting back

Cutting back on the number of stores that I officially blog for is one of the hardest things for me to do. Choosing which stores to stay with and which to let go of can simply do my head in, but its part of what I have to do if I am to remain a responsible blogger. It’s my duty to do my best for each brand I represent and the minute I know that is no longer possible, I have to face the truth and cut them loose. It’s heartbreaking to say the least. Especially when I have been with a brand from the beginning. However, as I continue along my blogging journey I evolve just like everyone else. My tastes change, my style changes, my feelings change and thus my blog changes, as well as my photos.
The important thing for me to remember is why I blog in the first place. I blog for me, first and foremost. I blog for the therapeutic value and the creative outlet. The past few months, I’ve discovered that’s all I do. I log in to SL simply to blog and I work. I love both, but there has to be more. SL is not a job, nor do I ever want it to feel like one. I love the jobs I have and I love my blog. I love the stores that I represent and those I’ve had to part ways with over time. I have never blogged for a store that I didn’t believe in nor will I.
It’s time for me to find room for more than blogging and work in my Second Life. That’s why I had to resign my position from a total of 9 stores and events this past weekend. *sighs* I only hope the brands know how difficult the decision was and that I will always be grateful for the opportunities afforded me while blogging for them.

  • I had to do that. My RL dad got sick and he was deteriorating where he didn’t know who we were half the time. We had to call the emts last month because he had stopped eating the food we’d give him and was hallucinating. He ended up in the hospital for a week. Let me tell you that was a welcome vacation from the stress but then we had other stresses come up too. So I had taken a month away from blogging, but then when I came back, I found I needed to cut back even more. I need an RL job that pays something so we can save up for if the unthinkable happens. That way we’ll have some money in a nest egg to move with to a more affordable state. It was really hard letting go of all the people I had blogged for…some of them I had blogged for more than a year… the people that kept me no matter what really made my day. When I told them what was happening in my RL, they understood. I still had to leave a majority of the stores and events I blog for because they have rules they have to follow, which I really understood…Anyway, I just wanted to say that I understand where you’re coming from on this…it’s so hard to make these choices because you love the stores you blog for or you wouldn’t be blogging for them…
