Something we have always wanted, but never gotten to do: create an inworld presence for our group. A real [SL] Blogger Support Head Quarters, a place where our members can meet up, hang out, spend time together and share tips and tricks or just chill. A place where we can organise blogger-related events, or just socialise.
Well, thanks to John Brianna (johannes1977.resident) from KultivateMagazineand Windlight Art Gallery, we have our very own, inworld SLBS Head Quarters!
John has generously offered us a parcel on his sim, for us to have our HQ, for which we are very grateful!
Here is the SLURL: SLBS Head Quarters in Second Life
The HQ is open to all, and since this is all new and I have not been inworld for some days due to Real Life, it is a bit empty and seems under-decorated. We are still working on it, it…

The 2016 Gold Stars Judging Panel has now convened. All three judges [Me, Myself and I] have reviewed a countless number of blogs, for an almost unaccountable number of hours over the past year.
This year’s list may be a bit shorter than usual, as one of our Panel members was felled by First Life this summer and was away for three months. And when one of us goes down, we all fall apart. So, for the many blogs reviewed during the remaining nine months, the following are our choices for outstanding blog-related work in 2016:
** INKIE LOUDWATER – a Gold Star for Best Blog Title: CROSSED EYES AND LITTLE WHITE LIES
** JADE SAMSARA – a Gold Star for an excellent Blog Site Name: JUST A SPOONFUL OF PSYCHO
** MOLLYWOLLIDOODLE RESIDENT– a Gold Star for a great Blogger Name: MOLLYWOLLIDOODLE
** WICCA MERLIN– a Gold Star for Model/Blogger. The Model — It is hard to have a good body balance when your legs are super long; however, Wicca manages to always look perfectly balanced from any camera shot angle. The Blogger — Wicca’s blog is refreshingly different. The text she includes with each post shows that she is much more than a fashion plate with a style card. Wicca Merlin stands out from the crowd, as a model and as a blogger.
** HIKARU ENIMO – a 24K Gold Star for Photography in Blogging [for the second year in a row]. Every time you think you have seen his best work, Hikaru raises the bar and tops himself again and again. [HIKARU ENIMO – Male Fashionista]
** ANOUK ANNA [ANOUK A.] – a Gold Star for Photography in Blogging. Her studies in black and white, shadow and light, create a blog site that is a virtual cornucopia of visual delights. Favorite of the Judging Panel: CONTEMPORARY DANCE
** NEKOTTO RESIDENT – a Gold Star for an across-the-board, unanimous, we-love-your-pictures blog [Nekotto].
** With the increased popularity of micro-mini blogs such as Plurk and Tumblr, photography in blogging has become so important that, ofttimes, it eclipses the content of the blog itself. Quoting the Ultimate Blogger, STRAWBERRY SINGH, “When it comes to fashion blogs, I rarely read what’s written and really only get drawn into the post if the picture stands out to me.”
Blog photos need not necessarily be perfect, but something in the photos should elicit an “oh, wow!” type of response. The “wow!” is the benchmark for blogger photos. And in the WOW! category for 2016:
– ** EMBER BRANDT – a Gold Star for the eye-catching closeup in BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS
** KAI WIRSING – a Gold Star in the newly-created Phascinating Photography category; Kai’s blog photos never fail to fascinate and intrigue.
** TAMARY9 RESIDENT [xxx tamary] – a Gold Star for an appealing photo blog. The soft quality of her photos conveys a warmth of spirit, giving us an insight into the person behind the blog; even the title of her blog site suggests softness: Marshmallow Day
** GABRIELLA MARSHDEVIL – a cute-as-a-button Gold Star for a blogging style that mimics her avatar look — oh-so-sweet and adorable. [Cinderella Fashionista] “I focus on kawaii/doll style … every pic is made with love.”
** VOLUPTURAPTOR PERL – a Chameleon Gold Star for versatility to the one who blogs as IGotDressed; subject, style and composition of this blog are always changing, and never stale.
** ALISA PERNE [Alisa26 Resident] – a Gold Star for good blog coverage of designer releases and events, especially fantasy and role-play. The blend of descriptive text and top-quality photos makes Sweet and Sinful Styles a blog to follow in 2017.
** PARADOX MESSMER – a Gold Star for his tribute to David Bowie: ZIGGY REALLY SANG. “… there’s a little Bowie in all of us, if we just dare to be true to our real selves and let it come out.”
** DEVIN VAUGHN – a Gold Star for the original STORYLINE sections which accompany his blogs — with special reference to the three-part Shadow of the Reaper, beginning 10-29-2016; Rocky Horror 2065; and Somewhere Over the Rainbow
** MERICAT IRELAND [ReadMeri] – A you-go-girl Gold Star for WINNING THE RACE: “If life is a race and I’m in it alone, am I winning?” Having been in Second Life since early 2008, Meri likes “to share her thoughts and infinite wisdom with anyone who is daft enough to read it.”
** ROMAN GODDE – a you-go-guy Gold Star for TOP 5 WAYS TO GET OUT OF HOUSEWORK, a handy reference guide for the times a man is unable to “… stick to the manly things like hanging a picture or setting up any electronic item in the house ….”
** BLISS WINDLOW [aka Aria E. Appleford] – a Gold Star for EVERYONE IS SOMEONES IMAGINARY FRIEND. A totally original blogger, “they” are one of a kind, with an unique viewpoint on First Life and Second Life.
** A GIANT GOLD STAR each, for two bloggers who actually blog information, who provide text to read and information to absorb, about Second Life and other virtual worlds — how to find, how to fix, what to look for, what to ignore.
– ** NALATES URRIAH – Nalates’ Things & Stuff – Nalates has been know to [figuratively] descend into the belly of the beast to dig up the latest and best inside information to help us navigate through the maze of virtual worlds. “In general I write posts because I like to write and think some of the information will help out friends.”
– ** INARA PEY – Living in a Modem World – If you are looking for information on the best in Second Life [who, what, when, where, why and how], this is the blog to follow. The blog is, as described in Inara’s own words, a “collection of writings on virtual worlds … a mix of news, reviews, commentary and opinion ….”
** WENDZ TEMPEST – a thank-you Gold Star for her thoughts on the spirit of blogging and bloggers: YOUR BLOG IS YOUR BABY. “… a blogger’s responsibility foremost is to his or her own blog…. Your blog is your baby. Not your Flickr, not your Facebook, not your Twitter, your B-L-O-G.”
“At its core, [my blog] is a representation of all that I hold near and dear to my heart. And you, fair reader, fellow lurker, and friendly scroller, you are always welcomed.”
And with those kind words, we close up 2016.
Best wishes for the new year, Bloggers and Readers, and Lovers of Virtual Worlds.
