My Three Wishes

1. an UNDO button   :)))))))
    an UNDO button
    an UNDO button

How many times... I textured an entire group of prims unintentionally...

2. Agrees with Berry, I wish SL had a better reputation. There's so much good/great/AWESOME going on here. We need more positive PR. I am not shameful of my SL, but usually say something like, it's not what you've heard, and send one of the better youtubes. I was hoping that the Fantasy Faire would break out into mainstream media to showcase what this community does for Relay For Life. Oh, well...

This is one video that drew me in:

3. I wish I had time... time to learn mesh and create with the passion abandonment I learned to build with cubes. Time to be more social. Time to give more to the community.

In the meantime, dance me to the end of love :)

Why I Blog

I wanted to post a reply to Berry's meme challenge. But,  I wanted to find the first picture of myself, and it's taken me awhile. That was a couple computers ago, but good old Google never forgets! This is the earliest picture I can find. LOL look at that system hair! I think this is still on a help island. It looks like I found some freebies already. This may be from my 1st attempt at SL in 2005.   

so here's a contrast:

Most recent.

The Meme:

1. How long have you been blogging? since April 2007. Specifically about SL, and Leondra's Blog; since June 2008.

2. Why did you start blogging? I want to keep a Web Log.. of what I find interesting, a sort of diary.

3. How many times a week do you post an entry? I average 1x a week, but have gone weeks without posting.

4. How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis? At least 50 or so on a regular basis, and that does not include the individual ones posted in the syndicated ones, which I count as one.

4. Do you comment on other people’s blogs? sometimes, but rarely. I have to have a strong opinion or need to comment.

5. Do you keep track of how many visitors you have? Nope, occasionally look, but I don't care. It is only recently that I have begun to realize others "read" me. I never think I have a readership, etc.
6. Did you ever regret a post that you wrote? Yes, and I have deleted it. Not that I said anything negative, but perhaps revealed more about myself than I really want.

7. Do you think your readers have a true sense of who you are based on your blog? Nope, only some of my interests.
8. Do you blog under your real name? No, I blog under my second life name. I have never blogged under my real name. Even in my other blogs, I have used pseudonyms.
9. Are there topics that you would never blog about? YES!!!! I avoid the SL drama like the plague.

10. What is the theme/topic of your blog? What I like!!!!!. I began to give credits to designers several years ago, because credit is due to those artists. When I post fashion stuff, it is about the creativity in the items. I never "review" things or would want to do that.

11. Do you have more than one blog? If so, why? This is my only SL blog. GAD! I can't keep up with this one, so no others. I have retired my others which are not about SL.

12. What have you found to be the benefits of blogging? It makes me aware each time I write that writing is a craft. Something that I will always "work" at to do.
13. So, why do you continue to blog? I enjoy the challenge of keeping up with current things. It keeps my journey in one place. When I get disillusioned about SL, I can see all the transformations, experiences, and creativity I have marked as important to me. I find comfort in that. I also keep some posts non-public to retain those memories.
