Well hasn’t it been a minute since I’ve been here. I don’t know how many of you will read this blog, nor do I know if anyone will find what I have to say interesting. It’s been over a year since I posted a blog. I just got tired of it. I had been for a while. I started blogging cause it was fun and back in 2010 when I was doing it, it wasn’t something that EVERYONE was doing. Flickr wasn’t even a thing. I enjoyed the writing and the taking photos, I do not enjoy post editing (which is why with the exception of SLIGHT if any cleanup and a photo filter, my pictures are not post processed at all). I do not have the patience or the talent of a Skip Staheli or the fantastic LessthanZero. I am a blogger who likes to take pictures.
What have I been up to over the past year and 2 months (if anyone cares lol). RL is going well and SL is going exceptionally well. For the first time in my 7 plus years of secondlife, I actually got married in May…and we are still together….which for SL is no small miracle for a relationship that is primarily SL with a little RL crossover. I have been concentrating on my SL family and just having fun. I still am General Manager of PurpleMoon Creations, which in the summer of 2016 I celebrated 5 years working at (Another record in SL?).
I decided to start blogging again after having a conversation with my sissy, fellow blogger Caitlin Mirabella. Caiti and I decided to start a blog together. I will dual post my blogs on both this one and the new blog, called The Deviant’s Boudoir (even though I don’t know how deviant I am…even though I do have an SL husband who was introduced to me by my SL daughter who is his RL wife and I also have an SL boyfriend that my SL husband thinks is a pretty cool guy….and my sister is also sleeping with my SL husband…cause well..i set it up 😀 ). But then again…honesty and openness is pretty deviant behavior for SL…so I guess I am.
After all that…I have also decided, with the exception of a very small group who know to expect the bare minimum from me, I have no official sponsors. I do realize how much time goes into the making of clothing in SL. I also know how much time goes into the making of MY blog posts…and alot of blog posts. Free outfits that I am only going to wear for the blog post is not enough incentive for me to be on deadlines and quotas. This is my second life and as a blogger, I am taking it back. I am blogging things from my inventory (like this AMAZING old school flexi hair from Boudoir and the sculpted jewelry from Mandala) and new things that I actually like and will wear more than once like this dress from Valentina E and the shoes from United Colors.
I hope you join me for the ride, however frequent or infrequent it may be. Either here or at the other blog.
Please note – I wear the Simone Bento Head from LeLutka, the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body, the Vista Bento hands. Unless otherwise stated, those items are a constant. If you see me in world and I look all sorts of fucked up, trust me when I say, it’s not me, it’s you. Update your viewer.
