Wow its New Years eve already?

Ive been thinking about all the New years resolutions I have made and I still haven’t completed them. Not one single one.

Every year we sit down and promise ourselves a resolution we will achieve by the following New Year. Yet how many of us actually do get the final result?

I’m like most, the initial lose weight, get fitter, earn more money etc etc. I fail every single time.

So this year I have decided I wont make those particular resolutions. Instead I will resolve to do the opposite. That way when I get the opposite result, I would have achieved last years resolutions!

Actually this year what I do want to achieve is, changing career path (or rather setting the groundwork to that), better health as I’m in a quandary with various health issues. Perhaps maybe look at my ASMR thing and actually do something to achieving it properly. I’m a bit of a procrastinator at times and I have been with this one project.

Oh and attempt more of this live streaming malarkey online, be it real me or virtual me. Life is too short to think “oh I will do that next year”.  Aside from general family things I wish to achieve, sorting our my career path and financial and health lifestyles, I think that will do. I’m sure to achieve at least one right?

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!!

Facing the paparazzi?

This backdrop did make me laugh so had to get it.

There’s been so much negative feedback about the new sim Backdrop City that I seriously had to put my two cents worth in.

I’m a daily vlogger/blogger and try to do a lot of my blogs around the various sims in Second Life as I love showing off scenery specifically when I am filming.

But, there is a but. Lag happens a lot and you will often hear me moaning about that when I’m vlogging and can’t Rez a hud properly. So it’s the home platform to film. Now I’m not rich by any means and having to buy backdrops as often as I need them and props, actually works out damn expensive. I’m showcasing merchants when I’m doing this and I’m personally not earning a penny.

When the sim Backdrop city opened it meant that on days I suffer bad lag there is somewhere I could go and get that photo or picture together at last minute.

I think the numerous assertions that this will mess up merchants incomes etc is daft.

The reason I feel that way is simple. Since I first joined SL I’ve taken photos in many places where people have had said backdrops freely available to use and scenes other people have created. There have been free to use photo studios and I know of other places that just contain backdrops. This has been existing in SL ever since I learnt you could take a photo.

The lady that set this up has physically using her own money paid for each of the backdrops and also pays for the sim.

I in turn have purchased backdrops from merchants that I thought wow, wonder what else they have as a result of visiting this sim.

So logically who has missed out financially?

The items were purchased and I know some of those cost in excess of 1k per Backdrop. So money was exchanged.

I agree that items listed at events need to be held back till event is over but seriously there is a bigger picture.

In reality we buy and sell on what we buy. That’s real life commerce. We buy a car, we sell it on. The principle is pretty much the same here if people are talking about commerce in SL. Every business has to have a backup plan on how they sustain their business and how they plan to market it.

People showcasing fabulous backdrops in blog posts or videos is also part of the market plan.

Do we complain when a dance merchants dances appear in dance systems at clubs for all to use? That a house is multiplied in sims as part of rental businesses?

Yet there is a huge cry out on someone who is earning nothing, not even a land tip.

Certainly don’t be negative about bloggers who use these because frankly we are advertising for you.

Oh and remember everyone ganging up to harangue one person who thought she was doing a great thing for bloggers and vloggers, is a little bit like bullying. Think before you post. It’s not nice for anyone to find out they are being so maligned no matter who they are. And my goodness I have read some pretty toxic comments.

I’ve been there, worn the tshirt and it’s pretty soul hurting. Is that the people we want to be?

We are a community last time I checked.

Get to know the person and what she was aiming to do. Read the signs on the sim and just seriously be kind. Have a discussion, consider a marketing idea? Possibilities are endless.

Oh and be considerate of the bloggers who seriously are not making anything and who invest a lot of money in drawing together scenes for posts. It’s so totally a urban myth. That they get everything for free. I can guarantee that is not the case. A lot of us actually pay for our blogs and our props. We do it because we love it.

Post xmas blues

Well I really didn’t have Christmas as such.

I was home on the sofa feeling sorry for myself and missed out on two meals with family.

I’m hoping that this past week is just an end to a year of misfortune and next week a brighter year lays ahead.

Frankly despite popular opinion, I’m not as strong a character as people may assume.

I do have my breaking points too. I think I have been pretty near one of those.

Spending Christmas on your own isn’t quite a nice experience by any means.

Mine was due to sickness and I did feel very woe is me a lot of the time. I just chose to hold that back and not whine about it like I potentially could have.

But it certainly made me think more about people who are so alone that Christmas is always the same as any other day. Alone.

I think this year I plan to be more active in seeking out those people and finding ways to make them empowered more.

I don’t yet know the plan on that ideal. Not yet anyhow. But it’s definitely the one thing I feel in my heart I really need to do. Try and at least help one person feel less lonely.

Boxing Day morning and the real me is still not feeling great. However there is a but.

I’m feeling way better than yesterday.

So, Harriet on the other hand could be feeling worse than me?

Merry Christmas to all the children

I’m home today because I’m just not well enough to go to my daughters. I can’t really risk passing on the chest infection to anyone.

So it’s the sofa, tissues. Xmas films and a box of chocolates.

My daughter said when they dish the dinner someone will run it down to me so I don’t miss out.

It’s not the ideal Christmas I was looking forward to, but it is what it is.

The main thing is that the children have a great magical time and that’s really what counts.

People who know me will tell you I speak constantly of my grandson Mason who is like a daily miracle.

My decision to make some children’s type of videos is based solely for him as he loves looking at the avatars. So Isabella is born.

Enjoy the video of her first xmas moment.

Christmas wine with Isa

Coffee with Isa is early by one day because it is after all falling on Christmas Day, so I thought I’d do it for Christmas Eve instead.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas time and see you after the madness of festivities. Now for the final coffee got 2017…….
