No Pretty Pictures ….

 

I rarely get to play around in SL on weekends but this weekend I made it a point to get in 2 events hosted by a new blogger resource. BVN has a very informative web site as well as tons of social media links for you to follow and an in world group. ” Blogger and Vlogger Network (BVN), a group and website built specifically for networking and education purposes. BVN strives to provide bloggers and vloggers with the most pertinent, up-to-date, and interactive information available. ”

Saturday was the Launch Party, I was able to join in for he photography presentation with WrenNoir Cerise, she shared a ton of helpful photography tips and tricks. I suggest stalking her Flickr or other social media to stay informed of what she’s doing next!

I was unable to stay for the party afterwards but when I left it was off to a great start.

On Sunday they hosted a chat regarding linking/or NOT, credits on blogs . It was a great discussion and well led TBH. Everyone who wanted to share got the chance to share and or feedback on what was being shared.

I see this becoming another very useful blogging resource for new and old bloggers alike. Join the group, stalk the blog, drop in for some great info and some fun . Lurk or participate, everyone is welcome no matter what you blog.

 

 

Can We Talk ?

Yesterday Caitlin polled the Blogger Support Group on how we prepare for event blogging and today after reading some posted replies I think I misunderstood the entire question! LOL. Go figure. Blond to the bone and I wont even deny it!

 

I googled *bloggers wanted second life* the results About 6,200,000 results (0.62 seconds) , unreal ! SL Blogger Support Group has a list designers looking for bloggers. Some designers have their own Ads placed in blogging flickr groups and these things are posted over a ton of social media sites , reblogged, reposted, re blasted. It’s great ! Most of the designers have no clue who is blogging their stuff, they turn that all over to their blog managers with a list of must have/do, to get in or remain in the blog group. When this started I was in a few blogging groups, it took me about 5 minutes to learn this was not for me. I have a full offline life and I don’t have  a ton of SL time , SL blogging is not now and never was my *JOB* and I was blogging for designers I genuinely liked , but then came other demands from groups. One group I never even applied too kept dropping things to me and I did not blog , it was not my taste , after a bit I was contacted about not blogging and I said “I have blogged you BUT most of your things are not my taste and I did not solicit your things, you just dropped them to me” , it was not a pretty thing and one I will never go through again. The designer promptly reminded me she was a TOP BOSL designer *shrugs*. This was several years ago and I never see her blogged anymore.

Designers began making rules about how often they wanted each release blogged by their groups, rules about flickr hits, social media hits etc etc and blah blah. Then came the blogger flickr repost wars. Pretty soon I had to stop looking at blog feeds and flickr and my other social media because it was ALL THE SAME pix. OH ! and lets not forget the feeds and their rules and niches and cliques. It’s very hard to get on feeds these days.

Yes, blogging has changed over my 8 years in SL. Who is at fault? EVERYONE involved. BUT I still blog , now I just blog ONE designer who I adore and respect the rest I blog because I want too. AND, please stop bashing freebies/gifts left by designers at events because the bloggers with not much to spend or just starting out with no following or little just MIGHT be the next SL top blogger/vlogger that that designer is looking for and that blogger will always blog the designers who is nice to them and leave great gifts at events for free because they are trying to build a blog and blogger/designer relationships. NO ONE blogs these days just to get free things in fact I bet no one does.

 

That’s my two cents 🙂 . What’s yours?

The question was ……..

Tell us….how do you prepare?

Caitlin Tobias posed this to the blogger group BUT any blogger can offer their thoughts ! How do I prepare? Well, I don’t really blog *events* anymore , I just pop into ones that interest me and shop. I make a folder before I go and name it * !! EVENT NAME and date* and drop things in it as I shop JUST in case I got booted, then I’ve not lost track and valuable time. If it is possible to do photos on the event sim and I can unpack there I like doing that but it’s not always possible to unpack and we all know that once you leave  an event it could be hours or days before you get back in. I don’t attend all early openings/invitations either, it’s impossible for me to do that. I DO follow Seraphim blog for news and pix of whats going to be on sale for the events, and I always pay attention to the blogger support group for news and fresh sims to shoot on or tutorials and helpful tips and tricks.

I will often grab freebies/gifts to blog BUT that’s not really my thing even though there are some awesome bloggers who sometimes ONLY blog freebies. That is their niche and valuable to SL shoppers, newbies and oldies alike. I follow a few blogs and bloggers who are freebie bloggers.

Also in case you missed it , Belleza will release their new male mash body!! Preview it here. Very hawt !

If You Think That’s Bad ……

I know at the moment it seems all we can do is argue  about politics BUT there are so many other things, important things in our offline lives we don’t think about and this is one of them. Unclaimed Children. Yes, you are reading that right. I didn’t. Early this AM while the rest of he house was still asleep I made coffee and turned on the news and in shock in horror fell to tears listening to the story of what a local Priest is doing for these children whose bodys are never claimed after their deaths. How one priest is determined to show love to Georgia children who die with no one to bury them. Things can always be worse BUT there are so many things we can focus on, these children deserved a life , a life better then what they got.

I was not really in a Valentines mood yesterday but I do hope all of you had an awesome one!

I did shoot some fashion for you though.
