Recent Changes In Flickr and What It Means For Second Life Bloggers

Since the announcement was made on November 1st that there would be changes to Flickr’s Pro and Free account offerings ( Let’s be candid.), feelings of disbelief, anger, and concern have been expressed in the Second Life community. There is no secret that Flickr has been integral to promoting SL fashion & photography. I have even written a couple of blog posts in the past about the influence of Flickr on Second Life blogging, and my own struggle to get the coveted 99+ faves . After reading all of the chatter for the past several days, I decided to make my own comments on the situation.

Just Fly

I was working on this photo last night when Second Life logged us all off (again). I kinda freaked out a bit and a few of my friends messaged me whether I was okay. Oops…but you know how it goes. You have the perfect light, angle, etc and you are about to hit that button to save the photo and then BOOM!.

MISS VIRTUAL UNIVERSE 2019 – Second Challenge Recap

On Friday, October 5, I attended the show where the Miss Virtual Universe candidates showcased their stylings for the second challenge.

I had some technical difficulties, and combined with Second Life logging over 90% of the audience and participants offline, I was not able to get the amount of photos that I would have liked.

To open up the show, Morgaine read various passages from Dante’s Purgatorio and Paradiso, describing the Zodiac and its 12 signs.

“And now see how from thence the oblique ring,
which bears the planets with it, branches off,
to please the world which calls upon them…” Paradiso X, 13-15

“O glorious stars, O light, that pregnant art
with mighty virtue, from which I acknowledge
all of my genius, whatsoever it be;
with you was born, and in your midst was hiding
he who is father of all mortal life,
when first I breathed the Tuscan air…” Paradiso XXII, 112-117

Pumpkin’ Donuts: The Ultimate Pick-Me-Up

Lately, I have noticed that in the evenings I am in dire need of sweets. Even though it’s not the greatest to use food to sooth your emotions (too much potential to overdo it), it really does hit the spot.

Tonight I am getting my sweet fix with something that I saw during my Fifty Linden Friday rounds: Pumpkin’ Donuts.
