Ok, so this posts photo, and the next one, aren't in skyboxes. Fantasy Faire is open longer then planed and I am taking advantage! The outfit is NOT from Fantasy faire, but hey, it makes me look like a truffula tree so, I went with it.

This week is all about why you blog, from Berry

This week’s meme is a bit of a long one and I’ll admit I didn’t really change any of the questions around from the RL blog I stole this from. I usually totally revamp all the questions so they are more sl related but I figured since this one was more about blogging, I could just leave them as is. I did add one extra question to the list because I felt weird having 13 questions (yes I’m totally superstitious) and also because 14 is my favorite number! :D So yeah, don’t kill me for having 14 questions today.

Meme instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers to your post, delete my answers and input your own. Try not to swear at Berry in your head for having so many questions this week and don’t forget to leave a comment in this meme’s post so others can come by and read your answers as well!

And so here we go!

1. How long have you been blogging?

Since I started Second Life in 2008

2. Why did you start blogging?

Because I was super excited about this new world and wanted to share my excitement about the things I found. I started doing so in my none SL Live journal, then switched to using a different LJ account to not annoy the folks that just didn't care about it. Then I learned about feeds and started cross posting to a blogger account as they fed better then Livejournal does.

3. How many times a week do you post an entry?

It used to be not often at all, maybe once or twice a month. Weekly if I was on a roll. Then I got into doing the color challenges so it became at LEAST once a week. I tried to have a none color post as well each week, but that didn't always happen. These days, with all the memes I am doing its a minimum of three times a week. More if I can manage to go and explore a sim NOT for a post.

In May it will likely just be the memes as my weekends are filled with preforming at the Oklahoma Renaissance Festival. And I pretty much DIE on Mondays when I get home. Side note, Come visit me there! I'm SO easy to find, in the fairy glen!

So weekly blogger challenges have really helped me blog more which is why I started my own when Luna's ended.

4. How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis?

I try to watch the feeds so I have no idea. Going to individual blogs is a hassle to me so I like having them all in one space. I do have a few that I singled out and watch their feeds apart from the mass feeds to not miss posts from them.

5. Do you comment on other people’s blogs?

I try to, when I see something I want to comment on. But I have ALWAYS been a horrible commenter and seldom do it.

6. Do you keep track of how many visitors you have?

Blogger doesn't give that great of stats on it, sure I have some but not as in depth as I would like. I do like seeing how people find my posts, which tends to mostly be the feeds like Iheartsl. And sometimes the way people find me BAFFLES me, like what the heck are www.filmhill.com and http://www.vampirestat.com exactly and how to people use to find me?

7. Did you ever regret a post that you wrote?

Some that I am a bit nervous about, but none that i have regretted. And so far all the nervousness is me being a worry wort.

8. Do you think your readers have a true sense of who you are based on your blog?

I like to think so.

9. Do you blog under your real name?

*laughs* No, I do not, but my real name is easy to find out. Or just ask I'll tell you.

10. Are there topics that you would never blog about?

Sex and violence. I try to keep a PG blog, and that includes what I wear. I can not TELL you how self conscious I felt when I was taking shots of that outfit by the Plastik last week. That was very extreme for me.

11. What is the theme/topic of your blog?

I'm a big ol mix of stuff, Fashion, Exploration, Events. A hodgepodge.

12. Do you have more than one blog? If so, why?

I have a personal blog to talk about none Sl stuff. It's a Livejournal and you have to HAVE a livejournal to read it.

13. What have you found to be the benefits of blogging?

Sharing things, meeting friends.

14. So, why do you continue to blog?

I enjoy it, and it lets me share the AMAZING world that is Secondlife.

This week is an interesting one!

So you’re walking along the beach, kicking at the sand and you notice a magic lamp hidden under a rock. You pull it out and rub it, because what else would you do with a magic lamp? Out pops a genie and is ready to grant you three wishes, any three wishes to do with your SLife.

Meme instructions: Share three things you wish for or about your Second Life. They could be things you wish from Linden Lab, things you would like to have inworld, things you would like to do, or any kind of wishes you may have. Remember to leave your link in this meme’s post so others can come by and read your answers as well!

1. I wish Secondlife was easier on computers then it is.

Linden really needs to work on its programming so it does not take such specifics to run Sl and have it look GOOD. Not Decent, not ok, REALLY GOOD.

When I started five years ago in order to play second life, I had to get a new computer, and a specific graphics card. I get that the downloading of images you need a good internet speed, but can't they make the viewer run better for people that have lower grade or older computer?

2. I wish I could access my Secondlife Inventory in real life.

I would have the worlds best wardrobe and never run out of food, money or ANYTHING. It would be fantastic. Would take REAL magic to make this happen but how awesome would that be?

3. I wish I could focus myself more to be a better creator.

My biggest problem with creating stuff isn't lack of ability, its lack of focus to learn the tools, or to sit and work on a project and learn the software to make things. If I could make myself focus on those and not be all over the place when on the computer I bet I could eventually get to the point of building amazing things!
