So a lot of stuff has been happening and this blog has gradually started to take off and expand just a bit. There is plenty of more work to be done on it but I wanted to sit back and highlight a few things:
- Blogger Tutorials: Home for Photoshop, Photography, Windlighting and eventually Mesh-Related articles, as well as Marketing for Bloggers!
- Blogger Resources: Home for Challenges, Designers Looking for Bloggers, Locations, and Events Within Second Life!
As time goes on, these pages will fill up and become an ongoing resource for all of you. If you find anything that can be added to these pages, please let me know or someone from the Support Team.
One of the ideas that was brought up was the Destinations document that was started a bit back. I had originally left the google document open for everyone to use and add to, but unfortunately – I didn’t back it up and everything got screwed up. If you check the page where locations is, you’ll find new information on how to add a new place. Everyone can view the document still, but not add to it. I hope that this doesn’t inconvenience people too much.
Last but not least:
We’re looking for contributors to write a few blog posts for the [SL] Blogger Support blog. What we’re looking for is those of you who are willing to write like ‘mini’ articles on blogging, fashion, events, photography, photoshop, etc. Also, interviews with designers as well! It can be anything that really relates to blogging in general that will help you and your fellow bloggers, as well as bring discussions around.
The articles can be posted on your own blog, but you will have author rights on the Support blog to post as well. If you are interested in this, please fill out the application and we’ll contact you on the set up.
Application is HERE
On that note, Happy Blogging Everyone!
On July 14th, the SL Grid is being hit with what is known as Hair Fair. For a lot of us, this is a time for amazing designers to come out with their amazing work and show us their ever-growing talent. It’s also a huge charity event for Wigs For Kids. A percentage of the sales from Hair Fair 2012 will be giving to the Wigs For Kids charity. We all hope you come out on the 14th to show your support.
To help out with the lag, there is a Hair Fair DEMO Group you can join in-world: HERE Please join. Designers will send demo packs through this group, so that you can look at the designs and try them out prior to arriving to the sim, and also help out in your shopping excursion.
Happy Hair Shopping!
Remember your first days, weeks or even months in SL? Remember how you met people that helped you along the way or how you wish you had met those people!?
I want to challenge you all to reach out and help a newer resident. Show them around, use your network to introduce them to stores, places to explore and introduce them to the tons of events. I remember the first time someone told me about The Dressingroom and Fifty Linden Friday! OMG I was so happy! 🙂
So go help out! And share your pictures and stories in the Flickr group:
