Happy Bandana Day - Booth Sign

Bandanas for Bandana Day 31st July

Residents from all over SL come together each year under the same roof of a Bandana Booth, to provide these wonderful creations for us to purchase. Bandana day is traditionally the last day of Hair Fair, so this Sunday 31st July, you can remove your hair to show you care, and help Wigs for Kids. The bandanas are sold at 50L each, they are transfer so you can buy for friends, for alts etc. They have become collectibles over the years. They are only sold at this event, not sold at any other location, and once the event closes they are no longer available.

So many gorgeous styles, some just downright hilarious ones, and the notecards that come with many may – if you are anything like me – have you in tears.

Thank you so much to all that contributed this year with Bandanas, and thank you to all that purchase…

Luxe Box June group is open. I had soooo much fun opening the last box (Pix above).  I can’t wait for the next.  Make sure you join Luxe Box.  Things to do before: make sure participating designers support your body, you generally like their previous releases, you love awesome surprises! Cheers to Luxe Box.  Changes to this round–chat is open and from what I have seen creators really want to hear your feedback.  Last month I spent roughly 4 US dollars and got  40 US dollars worth of items!  That is freaking HUGE.    This month the cost to join has raised to 1500L (6 US dollars).  Posted some pics…old yes…but memories forever. See website below for all the information you need.

Oh golly.

Seems every now and again the realm of bloggers in Second Life try to define themselves, so I decided to give you some insight.  We are not all the same.  And we shouldn’t be.  I will attempt in my search to define the second life blogger and present a few definitions and examples so you have some knowledge as you sift through the feeds. Some blog migrate between different categories:

1)  The Social  Commentator: These blogs usually keep up to date on fashion (can be questionable), but tend to focus more on the community of Second Life.  They offer musings and important information about what is going on and give us resources to for opinions.  Credits can be found on some.

Examples: http://nwn.blogs.com/nwn/http://www.girlwonderspeaks.com/

2) The Picture Pleaser:  These blogs post pictures and credits.  Nothing more.  They should probably be pretty good at taking pictures, but that is debatable.  It is unfortunate when they aren’t that great at the editing and photography.

Examples: http://nevacrystall.com/http://jadezillas.tumblr.com/

3) The Showcaser: The blogs post pictures and credits, but usually talk a bit about why they like an item or piece of clothing.  This group usually sparks some controversy because they refrain from pointing out flaws in items or they find no flaws themselves in said items.   As a reader, it might be hard to tell, do they like the item or are they selling me the item because of ‘ties’ to a designer? *gasps*

Examples: https://sopheemojo.wordpress.com/ (that’s me!); http://corapomilio.tumblr.com/post/66440022384

4) The Reviewer:  These blogs again post pictures and credits and are similar to “The Showcaser”.   They usually talk  about the outfit, but they make sure to point out flaws they see to the reader.  The idea is to review the clothing and not the person behind the clothing, but that is debatable (e.g. social issues the designer approves of, etc).  They might have ‘ties’ to designers too.

Example: http://juicybomb.com/

For a long time, I had no idea what type of blog I was or wanted to be or what type of Second Life blogs existed.  I guess it would have been smart to think about this before I decided to blog.  In all honesty, I just wanted a place to put the outfits I wore because starting out, I had no idea where to shop, and I thought it might help someone.  I started this blog on week two of entering Second Life.

At first, it was easy to be “The Reviewer.”  I had no ties to the community and just mimicked what I saw on other real life review blogs.  That being said, I do notice that I don’t ‘review’ an item as much anymore.  As I joined more and more social media outlets with ties to the community, I saw just how hard it was to keep a virtual business alive.  Some sort of fascination and admiration phase ensued, and I wasn’t so much enamored with the item, but with the process of making items in Second Life.  How do you manage a real life and a second life?   A deep respect for what I wore and the time it took to create this virtual piece made me rethink how I wanted to blog.

At times, I myself move between categories.  I would say without a flinch I am “The Showcaser.” From the start, I wanted this blog to be a place people could go to to find things.  I have enormous respect for my audience, and I truly believe you can make up your own mind when you purchase an item in Second Life.  I believe you will try the demo and figure out if a piece is you or if it is not.  My sole purpose was for someone to come out of reading my blog and finding something they loved, and if you didn’t, not for thinking I purposely mislead you, but that we both just might have a different taste in clothing.

It took me awhile to figure out where I fit. I think I meader between groups, but I most identify with “The Showcaser.”  I’m okay with that.  It is where I feel the most comfortable.

What type of blogger are you? What type of blogs do you read regularly? Why do you blog Second Life?
