Blogging Applications – Do’s and Don’ts

Trust me, I know how it is. You see one of your favourite stores or events opening blogger applications and you want that assignment so bad! Applications close in a week but you gotta fill that form out right now! In the next 10 seconds….quickly.  Of course, there’s a while to go so you don’t…

Weather Girls

Have you ever noticed just how much people can be like the weather sometimes? There’s the saying about people who ‘blow hot and cold’ indicating someone who shows a lot of interest in someone or something at one point and then equally disinterested moments, hours or days later. I’ve realised that one of the things…

Ponder in Bloom – Flickr Group Spammers

My post today is going to include a plea to people who misuse Flickr. I understand why they do it. I even understand what they think they achieve from doing it. The irony is that while on the face of it they may look, at first glance, like they have achieved their goal…they really haven’t….

I Close My Eyes and Count to Ten

I decided on the title of this post a few days ago when I took the picture and I’ve had this song stuck in my head ever since. The original of the song was by Dusty Springfield and was released the year I was born but I became aware of the song in the 80’s…

Magic Tea Time Bliss

I need a good angel. You know the ones that sit on your shoulder and tell you when to behave and shout down the bad devil on the other shoulder egging on you on to do the stupidest things? See the devil, or bad angel, had no competition at the moment it seems. The bad…

Looking for some Hot Stuff?

How important is how an avatar looks to you? I feel like it shouldn’t be an issue but in all honesty, it is right? It certainly shouldn’t be the only issue but it is still a consideration if you become close, or intimate with someone.  I invest a lot of time and money in how my…

The Beauty Battlefield

I talked over the weekend about how I would rather lose my sight than sound. It got me thinking as I was writing it about how that might work in SL. After all what most people, including myself, enjoy about SL is the ability to make our avatars a gorgeous, slim, physically attractive version of…

These are a Few of My Favourite Things

I’m having one of those days when it’s difficult to know what to talk about. I prepare the blog, credits and pictures for my post days in advance and then write about what’s on my mind on the day I post it. However, I am also trying not to be too political in my posts…

Why I Rise for One Billion Rising and How You Can Too

“I don’t come to Second Life for politics” I’ve read that a lot over the last 2 years on Facebook or other social media forums. I agree! To a point! For those of us that spend a lot of hours here though I think it has to be about more than shopping, adjusting our cheekbones…

Senses Working Overtime

It’s been one of those questions round a dinner party table…If you had to lose one sense out of sight or hearing which would you choose? I’ll state right now that my preference if put in that position would be to lose my sight. I adore sound. I love music…I couldn’t bear the thought of…

New Additions at TaKe Heart

Over the last week or so I’ve been working on a freshen up of my sim, TaKe Heart. I’m so over winter weather in both lives and while I have to put up with it a wee bit longer in real life there is absolutely no reason to in Second Life right? I decided to…

Choose your Battles

My battles over the last few days have been against myself. Feeling grumpy and moody (honestly I know I’m a woman n stuff but that’s really not like me) and struggling with a need to sleep versus a desire to keep myself busy til crazy hours of the morning. Nothing bad had happened to put…
