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.

Give you something and never want it back
Oh the riot and the rush of the warm night air
Only the wild ones

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

Spring Clean

This is going to be a fairly short post, as I have a lot to do and I’m ready to get started. The weather is absolutely gorgeous outside. The perfect temperatures with a fantastic breeze blowing through our open windows and spring cleaning is calling my name! The sun is shining and the house is smelling sooo fresh with all the cleaning agents. I know we have several days of rain ahead and I can’t think of anything that will make it a bit more enjoyable than a truly clean house.

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*

Raised by Tigers

When I initially created this post I was imagining some mighty warrior of legends to come, that had not only survived some type of apocalypse, but had lived amongst wild, rare tigers until they became united. I thought a girl that was perhaps raised by tigers, rather than the traditional story of being raised by wolves. Alas, I wrote none of it down, so I leave you to your own devices and imagination. What kind of story does this picture tell you? I’d love to know.

You Can Pretend

“Everybody knows
You and I are suicidal stolen art
Pretty moments sews
Stitches into all your bitches broken hearts
You can pretend you don’t miss me
You can pretend you don’t care
All you wanna do is kiss me
Oh what a shame I’m not there
Somebody new
Is gonna comfort you
Like you want me to
Somebody new
Is gonna comfort me
Like you never do
Every now and then it hits me
That I’m the one that got away
But I guess being lonely fits me
And you were made for begging, stay”

Boho Decor, Gimme More

I love love love Boho style decor. Some find it to be too messy, but I absolutely love the eclectic style so much. For one thing, you can add just about anything to the room. There are usually lots of colors and fun little hidden gems that can really tell visitors a lot about the resident(s) of the home. Luckily for me, there are lots of great decor styles available in Second Life. The various styles available for our virtual homes is incredible and there’s been no better time in the history of Second Life to add those little details like figurines and plants, that give our virtual spaces a true sense of home.

Days Long Gone

It is 4:30am and I’m sitting here quietly typing in a room lit only be two computer screens and the occasional bout of lightening. The sound of the rain pitter-pattering faster, then slower against my windows, accompanied by the wind creeping through cracks in the glass, all remind me of some random scene in some scary movie. My mind begins to travel to different times in my life as I check the weather website to make sure this is just a thunderstorm and nothing more serious. That’s what I do now. I’m all grown up and now I worry about things like whether or not a thunderstorm is going to turn into some demonic creation of Gaia sent to remind us whose home we live upon. Do I need to trick my animals into the bathroom along with my purse and medications? Dancing in the deluge no longer an option. Oh but once upon a time….and my mind begins to roam through the remnants of days long gone.

Mischief is a Hobby, Right?

According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, a hobby is a pursuit outside one’s regular occupation engaged in especially for relaxation. My mother, for instance, has gardening and reading. I like to read, too, but gardening? No. I don’t like being outside. I don’t like bugs and I’m terrible with plants. Inside Second Life, I think my hobbies would be blogging and mischief. Few things make me smile like causing trouble. Not serious, drama filled trouble. Just being a smart ass or class clown, so to speak. That makes it a hobby, right? In real life, I’d say I don’t have a lot of hobbies outside of gaming and Second Life. I really love painting, but I’m not great at it and eventually I get sick of looking at my own work hanging on the walls. Plus, Mr Mayhem, my cat, seems to be quite the art critic. He hates my work and is constantly knocking it off the walls. He destroyed the one painting I had that I genuinely loved.
I know there are several knitters in SL. I wish I could knit, but my hands would never allow for that. I can’t paint anymore and even typing incites a good deal of pain after a while. I’m curious what other hobbies people in SL have outside of Second Life.
