My birthday

I’ve just woken up and really want to go back to sleep.

It’s the one day of the year I look forward to a lazy lay in bed and as always awake at the drop of a pin.

So lay here I shall and insist on some laziness for at least another hour.

I do love a dance video so maybe I’ll lay here and instead dance in my bed? Happy Sunday everyone .

The first part of my celebration of being yet another year closer to the nursing home….

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.

Off I go

Well woke up today and guess what?

No, go on guess!

Sore head, sore throat and ache like I’ve done five rounds in a boxing ring.

Today is my first day of five days festivities and already it’s not looking too great.

Mind you I’ve still got 3 days in essence to have lots of vitamin c and sleep so that I’m right as rain for the day.

How many of you have woken up feeling the same?

Still my virtual me looks cosy and well and we will go with that.

Have a lovely Friday

Cold princess

I’m so so tired and really need to sleep. But I can’t.

My body is like a clock and performs on the tick of the hour no matter how much I try to turn the alarm off.

I’ve been exhausted a while now and that is mainly because I keep busy for many reasons.

I woke at 2am this morning and realised that if I keep this up at some point my body will hate me and defy me for being so cruel to it.

I haven’t even checked my blood pressure lately but I’m pretty sure it’s not going down at the rate I’m going at.

So I’ve decided to treat it a little better and go to bed earlier at night and will only go into SL to film my blog/Vlog and then log out.

I’ve always been like a machine when it comes to any projects I work on.

However I need to remember I’m not a machine. None of us are.

I’m logging out back into reality……
