In this blog, I document my existence and experiences within Second Life. I like to not limit myself to a specific field or area of interest. Instead, my blog is my outlet for sharing experience(s), knowledge, and to express myself. I often write opinion pieces; these cover recent or upcoming technical developments in SL, as well as social, regulatory, and political issues, especially when they affect things such as freedom of speech and creative expression or user / consumer rights. I also enjoy writing travelogues, and stories. There are also posts of a more personal nature. Please note that it is my personal policy to not be an official blogger for any shop or commercial event. That said, I do welcome ideas and suggestions for blog posts, and below I’ll state and explain my main areas of interest:
SL destinations: If you’d like me to write about your region or parcel, please send me a landmark or SLurl to it and a short description of it. I prefer to write about places that are open for SL residents to visit, and are well-suited to photography and blogging. I don’t write about residential and / or rental locations, unless the residential and / or rental aspect is secondary to their main function as an open space for visiting and exploring.
SL art exhibitions, events, and galleries: I’m open to invitations for in-world art exhibitions, installations, events, and galleries.
Events, fundraisers, charities: If you think my blog would be suitable publicity for your event, please send me the necessary information about it (description, website, SLurl / landmark, dates) via notecard. However, please note that:
- I do not blog gacha events.
- I do not blog shopping or fashion events, unless they are for a specific fundraising purpose.
- In general, I prefer to blog about fundraisers associated with established, recognised charities. I’m willing to write about a personal fundraiser, but only if:
- I know the beneficiary personally, and am aware of the situation at hand;
- I know the organisers of the event;
- It is a cause I would gladly support.
I would like to point out that, despite my best intentions, I can’t possibly write about everything I’m invited to write about or even what I’d like to write about, as my RL obligations dictate my blogging schedule. Furthermore, what I choose to write about depends on whether I find it appealing, inspiring, and / or to my personal tastes.
