Why Do I Blog?

So, I did a blog post called “Dangerous Proposition” where I asked my readers to give me topics to write about, because my creative well seems to be running dry these days. The first response I got was from my friend, Troy Nelson. He gave me four topics to start off with and this was the first one. As promised, I’m going to answer the question.
I started blogging for the therapeutic value. It was a creative outlet for both my photography and my passion for writing. Not to mention, I’m rather proud of some of the outfits I put together, so there was certainly some fun in it, too.
Now that I’ve been blogging consistently for over 18 months, I’ll compare it to heroin. This is something I’ve said many times. I blog now, because I’m addicted to it. If a single day goes by that I’m not taking a picture for a blog or at the very minimum working on a scene for a picture…well, let’s just say I’m not so fun to be around. So, there’s the answer to your first question, Troy. I’ll approach your other questions separately, each will be its own blog post.
I’d like to take a minute to thank Troy and Grace for submitting topics so far. I can honestly say, I’m already enjoying the challenge. Keep em coming!!!

Desire (NSFW)

This is my first post using two items from Bound Box. This is the first one, so they’ve been very generous by sharing photos and letting us blog it early so you can get a true taste of things to come. I thought about writing something really dirty and personal, but I chose to share one of the sexiest songs I know, that says it all. *grins* Enjoy the song and for the love of all things kinky…you really want to grab the Bound Box before the 12th, because this is the yummiest box to hit the grid. *purrs*

Meg Meyers Desire

Baby, I’ll learn to touch you
I wanna breathe into your well
See, I gotta to hunt you
I gotta to bring you to my hell
Baby, I wanna fuck you,
I WANNA FEEL YOU IN MY BONES
Boy, I’m gonna love YOU
I’M GONNA TEAR INTO YOUR SOUL

DESIRE, I’m hungry

Boy, I wanna taste you, I wanna skin you with my tongue
I’m gonna kill you,
I’M GONNA LAY YOU IN THE GROUND

DESIRE, I’m hungry
I hope you feed me
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?

Dance

The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can. Neil Gaiman

I’ve always found dancing therapeutic. Although I can’t quite dance like I once did, nor was I ever fortunate enough to take dance lessons as a child, despite my constant please. My father felt like it was a waste of money. He never did understand the soul of his daughter, probably because he lacks one of his own. However, if you’ve ever danced in your life, you know the joy it brings. You know that the body is capable of conveying messages and emotions through dance without the use of words. Its something I still enjoy from time to time for as long as my body can keep up the pace of my wild uncoordinated movements. *laughs* I think its one of the reasons my dance HUD in SL is so immense and I continue to add dances to it. In fact, I can often be found dancing alone on my platform as I put a scene together or simply converse with friends in IMs.

While ballet was not the type of dance I ever really wanted to do, it will always be special to me, because my mother has told me many times of how she longed to be a ballet dancer as a child. Her family was far too poor to even consider dance lessons, so it was out of the question. So, I dedicate this post to her.
This round of Collabor88 is crazy packed with all sorts of fun and exciting ways to bring your avatar to life, whether its in a gym  or a dance studio or just a sporty night out on the town with your friends. I urge you to head over and take a good close look around, because this will most definitely go down as a round to remember.
In the meantime, I hope you will find your inner dancer, be it in your heart, your soul, or your body…dance. Dance to remember, dance to forget, dance for exercise, dance for the joy of it…but please let yourself dance. There are few greater joys than that the feeling of sheer freedom when you dance as if no one is looking. I hope you dance.

What if…we get real?

How was your day?
Such a simple question to ask, but it can make a world of difference to the person you’re asking. Its usually the first thing I say after, “Hi Baby!” when I see Sino each day. Whenever I’m excited about something, I tend to make my story first followed by embarrassment for not asking him how his day was first, because honestly…what if he had a bad day? Is he really going to be happy that one of my photos was chosen for the cover of a Flickr group? Sure, deep down, but probably not what he wants to talk about, then again it might be just the distraction he’s looking for. I won’t know until I ask about his day.

welcome-home2

I’ve been thinking about this a lot. We often start conversations with, “How are you?”
On occasion someone give an honest answer, but do we really want to know that their IBS is acting up or that they just stubbed their toe or that their boss just laid into them over some stupid project that’s not even due until next week or its shark week and I swear to God if I sneeze there will be a crime scene worthy of Dexter in my pants? I think some of us do really want to know and yet when people ask us how we are…most of us give a general answer like, “I’m fine and you?”
Then we wonder why conversations die. What if we got real and honest with one another? I know, it seems almost like a foreign concept these days in Second Life, but for those of us that are REAL friends and do discuss real life, it might be interesting, dontcha think? I dunno, just food for thought from the depths of a twisted mind.

Let’s talk about the stuff for a minute. It seems like another event opens every day and its getting harder and harder to keep up, especially if you’re on a budget. However, there are certain items out there that just call to you and no matter how many suits you own or how many thigh high boots you already have…we won’t even discuss hair…you just have to have THAT! So, I’m sharing some of my absolute must haves with you…from Sino’s awesome suit and my outfit to some stuff for my house, because anyone that knows me knows I’m always decorating and my home is forever evolving. Enjoy!
