It All Starts With A Smile – click any image for full size
I’ve long enjoyed visiting It All Starts With A Smile, the photogenic Homestead region by Kaelyn Alecto and Maxx (Maxxster). I first dropped in far back in May 2013, and have since blogged about it several times in these pages. However, over the course of the last year, I’d actually lost track of the region, and so was delighted to receive news the latest iteration would be opening in mid-June, and made a point to put time aside to visit as soon as I could.
In this new design, It All Starts With A Smile has become a tropical paradise of five islands. Four of these are little more than idyllic stretches of sand rising out of the water, offering banyan shaded escape from the worries of the world; places where visitors can simply relax…

The title of this article is a quote by Roseanne Barr, and while it may sound legit and it may even make sense, it most certainly does not when it comes to your blog.
What am I talking about?
The past weeks I have seen a lot of blogs. A. Lot. While going through the backlog of applications we had for our group. One of the things we check is, well doh, the blogs. Now I am not going point out and smack blogs or people, but it reminded me it was time I needed to check my own blog, and clean it up.
In the past years I have written posts on why it is important to take some time, preferably every 6 months, to go through your own blog and check if all the links, the information on pages are still up to date. Nothing annoys visitors more than dead links in your blogroll, 2009 style profile pics on ‘about me’ pages and contact information that lead to nowhere because you changed e-mail and Social Media… etc.
They happen! It’s nothing to be ashamed of, but..you can avoid that by the 6 months cleaning up of your own blog.
Whether you are a new SL Blogger Support Member or an oldie (or not even a member but a loyal reader of this site!)…please take the time to read my blogpost from 18 months ago, and perhaps you get inspired to have a good look at your site/Facebook page/your SL Profile/ Flickr Profile/Plurk, Twitter and what have you, and improve it with new and up-to-date information.
Happy cleaning and blogging!
As written in my previous post, tomorrow Friday 24th June at 5PM SLT, both Katya and myself will be joining a panel discussion in The Auditorium at SL13B, to talk about SL Blogger Support and how our amazing group and site has been building a community of bloggers and is serving the general community by doing so.
We would really love to see lots of bloggers in the audience, to participate, of all topics: the fashion bloggers, the explorers, the art-lovers, the creators and designers, the ranters, the technical bloggers….all of you!
Though Katya and I were invited, we really want to make it clear us two are not the only ones behind SL Blogger Support. We have this awesome team with dedicated, enthusiastic members who all do their best to lend a hand and support and who put a lot of effort in keeping this group going.
We have been working hard to get rid of the backlog of applications, which is done and resulted in a lot of new, wonderful, members and we have also updated the pages in which the SL Support Team is presented with their personal pages. So if you are new, or not so new, and have no idea who to contact when it comes to SL Blogger Support related questions, please feel free to look one of us up and ask away!
Happy blogging and hope to see you tomorrow, 5PM SLT!
