You Do You, Boo!

Y’all know I love some Facebook drama, but rarely do I get involved. I like to just grab the popcorn and watch the showdown. The latest controversy I found was from a fellow blogger that stated there were simply too many events on the grid and she was getting disgusted by the entire scene. (I’m paraphrasing.) Oh the comments that ensued were about the best I’ve seen yet. There was no yelling or cursing or name calling! I know, its shocking right? It was almost scary as if the apocalypse was upon us and everyone had buckled down to offer suggestions. For a moment, I even thought there was going to be a winner or a leader chosen! Okay, I’m being a little melodramatic, but only because it amuses me.
Let me point out that I believe it is everyone’s right to put whatever the hell they want on their Facebook page, provided it falls within the TOS of FB. With that said, I think it can be detrimental to a blogger who depends on sponsors (for the lack of a better term) to attack (even gently) either side of the shopping community. However, the gauntlet was thrown and sides were taken. What I saw was that some bloggers have cut back, because its too much for them to keep up with. I saw creators say they no longer participated in events, because they preferred main-store traffic. I saw event organizers defend their events. I saw creators defending events.
The beacon of light was a comment about how these events would not survive without a thriving Second Life community. THAT made me smile. I have friends who own events, help run events, hell I’m the manager of one myself. I have friends that are creators, bloggers, and shoppers. I’ve been on the grid since late 2006 and I remember paying L$900 for a pair of boots that were made from nothing but prims. Sculpties did not exist yet. Flexi wasn’t even a thing yet! There were only a handful of “decent” stores and now our cups runneth over.
Rest assured my friends, there’s room for everyone. It’s all about what YOU want to do with your lindens and your time. No one is going to force to work or shop at an event, much less blog it. And to my blogger friends, I urge you to stay true to who you are and what you want to represent. In other words, “You do you, Boo!”

Foreplay

It’s no secret that I love doing collaborations with other bloggers, but finding the right time, scene, pose, clothes, etc….its not as easy as one might think. Well, finally, after months of saying we would, Tiffany Parkin and I got together, throwing caution to the wind, we did our first collaboration. I’m calling it foreplay, because I want to do another, sexier more tantalizing photo in the future. Poor Tiffany has been dragged into my world since the night we did this photo and I fear she’ll never be the same. *grins* You can find her version by clicking her name above and it will take you directly to her blog. ♥

Love Without Limits

I’ve always found it rather odd that people will label one another best friends then compete, manipulate, or bully one another. That’s not even friendship, much less “best” friends. To have true friendship, you must treat one another the way you wish to be treated. My best friends and I (yes, I have more than one. I have four) give each other hell, but its all in good fun. We do not get jealous of each other. We do not attempt to own one another. Nor do we throw tantrums about who they spend their time with, where they are, or what they’re doing. No, we are not perfect, but one of the reasons these friendships work is that we respect each other. We love each other without limits. I’ve gotten into arguments with two of them, but we’ve always worked it out. I see so many so called friends treat each other so terribly that it makes me wonder if they even have a clue what friendship really is and if they have said clue, I question their definition.

Going Outside

The weather has been so crazy lately, but there have been a few random perfect days. Admittedly, I’m a bit agoraphobic and I absolutely hate leaving my house. However, I do have a gorgeous dog that absolutely refuses to grow opposable thumbs. Thus, I must step out the door from time to time to allow her proper care. I wasn’t always like this and I remember many years of spending as much time outside as I possibly could. I suppose that’s just one more thing I love about Second Life. In this amazing virtual world, I can go anywhere without actually leaving the comfort of my home. I can explore to my heart’s content without anxiety or pain. I am so grateful for the experiences this virtual world affords me.

Possession

“Listen as the wind blows
From across the great divide
Voices trapped in yearning
Memories trapped in time
The night is my companion
And solitude my guide
Would I spend forever here
And not be satisfied
And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I’ll take your breath away
And after I’d, wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear
Through this world I’ve stumbled
So many times betrayed,
Trying to find an honest word,
To find the truth enslaved,
Oh you speak to me in riddles and
You speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath,
Your words keep me alive
And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I’ll take your breath away
And after I’d, wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear
Into this night I wander,
It’s morning that I dread,
Another day of knowing of
The path I fear to tread,
Oh, into the sea of waking dreams
I follow without pride,
Nothing stands between us here
And I won’t be denied
And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I’ll take your breath away
And after I’d, wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear
I’ll hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I’ll take your breath away
And after I’d wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes”

Why do bloggers…

I recently saw a post on Facebook asking, “Why do bloggers apply when their Flickr doesn’t meet the requirements to do so?” The only reason this post even caught my attention is because I was mentioned in one of the comments. I found myself quickly typing a reply that soon turned into quite a paragraph. Thus, I decided to bring both the question and my reply to my own blog. So, here’s my answer.

As a blogger manager, I don’t mind seeing up & coming bloggers apply. They might not make the cut, but if I see that they have potential I will follow them and watch them closely. If they keep on applying, even when they don’t qualify…they are driving their name deeper into my brain. Sadly, there are some that simply do not have what it takes to be a successful blogger. What I don’t like as a blogger manager is being pestered inworld by an applicant that has been rejected.

It’s also important to remember that the purpose of bloggers is to showcase the designer’s creation to as many people as possible….to make those viewers want….neeeed that creation. THAT is the very reason to have bloggers. So that you have a variety of stylists showcasing items in various desirable ways.

Stars are up now no place to go, but everywhere”

Outahere

I’ve always envied the people that just pack and move somewhere new with hardly any money in their pockets. I can’t wrap my mind around how they do it. All I can think about is how I’ll need money for deposits and food and rent and gas and…and…and…the list is endless. I’ve known people of all ages that have moved around all over the world with hardly any money to their names. I’ve never thought to ask any of them, how they managed it. Maybe they had more money and resources than they let on. I do know that if I had my life to live over, I would definitely have traveled more. I absolutely love the idea of packing up and just driving until I land somewhere, but that’s simply not an option for me….especially now. *sighs*
