Thoughts

Previously posted @ Her and Him.

The last few days I have been in a bit of a funk.  I wondered if it was post-event blues considering I was doing 4 events at same time and now I am in a lull.  It could also have been getting knocked back from some events I had applied for.  Well, technically not knock-backs if you never hear back, but you get what I mean.

Whatever the reason, I began to wonder if it was worth carrying on with the blog.  I have been doing this for 5 and a half years now and lately I am finding it harder and harder to find stores and events that want me to blog for them.  This definitely makes me re-evaluate what I am doing and how I do it because, after all, I do want to do my best for the readers who have hung in there with me on this blogging bus trip and for the designers who continue to allow me to blog their items year after year.

However, today I realised that I really do enjoy doing this.  I enjoy finding fab sims to shoot on, choosing outfits, playing with windlight settings, editing the photos and doing the blog post.  I also love putting the photos on Flickr and having people like them.  I do.  I like it.

I also love the wonderful designers I blog for.  I love that they are fun people who create amazing things for you and I to enjoy.  I love that I can chat to them and that we both get excited about new things they are creating.  I love that I have been blogging for some of them for over 4 years or so now and they still keep me on.   I wanted to list them here, but I am too scared I will accidentally miss someone and offend them!  They know who they are and I love them all dearly.  Thank you.

And, I love the event co-ordinators who DO let me blog for them.  I have had a blast the last few weeks blogging and writing for Depraved Nation, Best of SL, WeDoSL, Wayward Events and the Fantasy Faire.  I am giving them a shout out on purpose so that they know I appreciate all their hard work and effort.

Please don’t think I am having a “go” at the events who don’t take me on.  I am not.  I bet they get inundated with requests to blog their events and I am just one name among many.  This is possibly my own fault for not promoting my blog more or getting my name out there in blogging circles.  I have, perhaps naively, just done my thing and hoped that I would get by on years of service to SL blogging alone.  Apparently not.

A lovely magazine editor once told me that my writing has its own sense of ‘voice’ and I like that.  I try to keep my own style and flavour to the blog while still adapting and growing as a blogger.  I think one of the hardest things as a blogger in SL is to keep your blog fresh and fun without copying the style of other more popular bloggers.

So, what I am trying (badly) to say is that, for the time being, I am here to stay.  I will keep blogging and showing you fashion and accessories and home & garden items until I run out of things to say or things to blog.

Lastly, if you are reading this and you run a monthly event and would like a fun, drama-free blogger with loads of moxie to join your team, please feel free to drop me a notecard!

I might even look at mesh body buying if I really have to…sigh.

Flower for your thoughts

4.19.15.3.

Everyone has heard the saying “Penny for your thoughts?”, but do we really understand what that phrase means? It sounds cute and kind of like a cute way of asking someone what they think. Do you know where it came from? It was first published in 1522 by Sir Thomas More. He wrote, “As it often happeth that the very face sheweth the mind walking a pilgrimage, in such wise that, not without some note and reproach of such vagrant mind, other folk suddenly say to them, ‘A penny for your thought.’” This saying didn’t actually begin to pick up popularity till much later in 1547 by a book that was written by John Heywood. Now, do you really care about all this? Probably not, but you have said the phrase before probably in your lifetime so here you go. The point is to say that the wise stay silent until given money for their thoughts. A person’s thoughts are valuable and should not be wasted. Going off of this type of thinking, I would say that maybe we shouldn’t give our thoughts out to just everyone. Wait until your thoughts/ opinions are asked for before you start running over other peoples feelings in some cases. Words of wisdom today and more shopping to do! TOOTLES
