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!
This year Second Life celebrates its 13th Birthday – SL13B – and the sims with all the exhibitions and parties will open this coming Sunday 19 June. A week filled with events will keep us busy, and this year we – SL Blogger Support, – are extremely proud to be invited to participate in one of the popular panel discussions in the Auditorium.
What’s this all about?
A talk/discussion to demonstrate how the blogging community helps residents to find relevant information be it fashion, events, exploration etc. To talk about how the community support each other in endeavouring to share and disseminate information and to continuously improve itself.
Saffia Widdershins of Designing Worlds and Prim Perfect Publications
Kess Crystal of MadPea & The Glamour Sauce
Katya Valeska of SL Blogger Support, TLC & An Lar Poses
Caitlin Tobias of SL Blogger Support & Cait’s World
The audience, which is encouraged to participate, will be residents of Second Life and mainly visitors from the SL13B sims and hopefully lots of Bloggers!
The discussion will be in local voice, and will be about topics such as:
- How has blogging changed over the years?
- What does the blogging community bring to SL?
- How does it enhance the SL experience for others?
- How does SL Blogger Support develop a community of bloggers?
Since we only have one hour, it may be that we do not get to cover all topics, and maybe we even only talk about one. That is all okay!
Save the date, we need you!
We really would like to see lots of bloggers, and also important: not just fashion..but also the explorers, the art-bloggers, the event-bloggers, the story-tellers…etc., to make this discussion evening a meaningful one and to show how our SL Blogger Support as a community unites and embraces all the things in Second Life and how we really ‘support’ eachother.
Keep an eye on this blog, this is the LM to the Auditorium, SL13B is open but we will send reminders, for now….save the date: Friday 24 June, 5PM SLT!
