Four Years and Eight Days

Four years and eight days ago I started this blog.  I started it not even imagining that 4 years and 8 days later it would still be going.  I actually can't believe it.  Where have those four years gone?

So much has changed in SL since I first entered the world of blogging.  I look back at my first attempts and cringe a little.  I would like to think I have improved just a bit.

I will say that I am so thankful for the development of mesh and materials in SL.  They have made a bloggers job an absolute joy and I am in awe of the new items that continue to come from the minds and hands of the creators and designers in SL.  Long may that continue!



It was only today that I realised I had forgotten to mention the anniversary of blog commencement, so I thought I would mention it today and give you some stats.

Since November 29th 2009 there has been:

  •  1,513 blog posts.  
  • 347,207 page views
  • Blog visitors from around the globe including USA, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Japan, Canada, China, Russia, Brazil, Italy and New Zealand
  • Access to this blog from computers, notebooks, iPads, iPhones, and Android devices
  • A name change and a co-blogger
  • Opportunities galore for me to blog events and to even write some magazine articles.
I have also had the honour this year of being nominated for an Avi Choice Award in the Blog/Blogger Category (please vote HERE).  I was surprised and extremely humbled by this.  I often wonder who reads this blog and have mentioned to others that I consider it more of a personal record of my inventory.  When I can't remember what an item of clothing or furniture looks like I look it up on here because I am too lazy to try it on or rez it.


I will confess there have been times I have thought of giving it up, but then some amazing item of clothing or furniture or a house will land in my inventory and I realise I just HAVE to show you guys.

I will also confess that sometimes the lack of feedback on this blog worries me.  I read other blogs by amazing bloggers and I see the comments written by readers and I wonder why no one comments on my posts.  Don't get me wrong this is not for vain reasons, but more so that I know that I am writing for someone...anyone, and that they were enjoying what they see or read.

However, I just trust that if you were not liking it you would say something.  I go with the 'no news is good news' theory.

LASTLY, I want to use this time to say a huge THANK YOU to YOU, my readers, to the INCREDIBLE designers who allow me to blog their items and my AMAZING friends who support and encourage me.  All of YOU are the reason I keep going.  HUGS!!

  1. I've been quietly reading you for some time, but have never commented- so sorry! I sincerely appreciate all the photos you take (w/ poses), descriptions you provide, and especially the links which give easy access to the locations. I've purchased quite a few things based on your recommendations.

    So congrats on the anniversary and keep up the good work!
