Two’s Company

A couple of weeks ago I got the opportunity to collaborate with my twinny, fellow blogger and friend Divos on a presentation for the Blogger & Vlogger Network. Our subject du jour was Collaborating with Other Bloggers and during the presentation we set a bit of a challenge for the bloggers of BVN to collaborate…

Working Together

On Saturday, along with my friend, fellow blogger and co-worker, Divos, I gave a presentation at the Blogger & Vlogger Network on collaborating with other bloggers. I have to admit, when we both agreed to do this I wasn’t sure how we could fill an hour on the subject. Surprisingly, once we started to talk…

Beat the Devil’s Tattoo

My friend Meri talked about politics on her blog yesterday…well in fact, she sort of apologised for talking about it but as someone who follows politics both my side, and the other side, of the pond, I found her post interesting and thought provoking. It made me feel a little guilty as ridiculing a particular…

Lost Weekend

I’m sure we all say that on the first day of the week? Where did that weekend go? Well, mine was busy in both worlds but, for those of you that have been following the situation with my daughter, the great news of the weekend was that she was allowed to come home on Sunday!…

A Smile Is a Curve That Sets Everything Straight

I’m a book reader. I read every night before I go to sleep. No matter how tired I am I have to read at least a page of a book to help me unwind and replace all the muddle of other stuff in my head with a story I can get lost in.  It’s rarely…

Leave it all behind

I had one of those odd days yesterday where I found myself wondering about the ex of all ex’s. Voldemort, as we call him. I remember talking to a friend a few weeks ago who had recently gone through a break up and she expressed how she wished she could stop looking to see if…

Ladies & Gentlemen…wear sunscreen!

Now this blog post is supposed to be about suncream. I’m not really sure how to work suncream into a blog post in Second Life as with our every day beautiful skies in our glorious virtual world we don’t have to worry about skin burning and the dangers of UV rays. We also don’t have to…

Behind the Curtain

We’re all different, multi-faceted people right? I mean, we have our core personality traits and then aspects to our personality that can be drawn out by different people and different situations. Sometimes we hide somewhat ‘quirkier’ part of ourselves to whole groups of people for either personal or professional reasons but it’s always exciting to…

Fringe Benefits

I really enjoyed doing the vlog yesterday and I have more planned but I am going to mix it up with doing regular blog posts too for now. Part of the reason for that is that I have a routine and plan in place for blogging and while I quite enjoy change I have to…

The Skin Fair – Catwa & Belleza

Prepare to be inundated with posts about The Skin Fair because there is so much to pack into such a short space of time! I can’t even begin to tell you the excitement when I saw the new Catwa head. I gotta admit I love my friends looks with the previous releases but I could…

Free from the all the pain, Free from all the game

Why is honesty such a difficulty for a large number of people online? Now, there are several degrees of deceit, a spectrum if you will. It seems to me that sometimes people want to please so they tell you what they think you want to hear. We can call them white lies and I think that…

Here Comes the Sun

There’s been a break in the weather! It’s superbly Springlike in the UK at the moment which is such a refreshing change from the dull, dowdy weather of the last few weeks. Now the battle for control of the heating and opening windows begins at home and at work. See, I don’t feel the cold…
