Blogotex – the big bad wolf in Second Life blogging…or is it?

I have been sitting on this topic for a while…watching while one person after the other talks about the downside of a blogger management tool called Blogotex. How it stifles creativity, how it tempts bloggers to take more items than what they can blog, how it’s anti-social, and so on. There are content creators who need help with managing their brand, and they believe tools such as Blogotex help them a great deal.

What is Blogotex? According to their inworld information, “BLOGOTEX is a Web / SecondLife based solution that takes creator<–>managers<–>bloggers cooperation to whole new level by providing an environment, automation and functionality to ease the whole process and make it time efficient.”

I’ll start this discussion by talking about my experiences with Blogotex, then address concerns people have with it. And then, give my opinions on them all.

My Black Friday Finds

Okay – I have decided to show you guys some of the stuff that I have been getting for these Black Friday sales. Shopping is definitely therapeutic. With the exception of Blueberry, it was nice just teleporting from store to store and then walking/camming around to try on and buy items. Second Life residents get all the craziness of Black Friday every time we try to get into a new event round…sometimes I wonder why do we do this to ourselves.

I spoke with one of my cousins in RL and she said that she didn’t feel the need to shop just because it was Black Friday. She has everything she needs, and doesn’t need a lot of stuff. Bath & Body Works had some sales prior to Thanksgiving, so I bought some lotions and hand soaps. Could I had lived without them? Sure. But since I look at their items throughout the year and wonder how a certain scent smells or not willing to pay $15 for an item, then Black Friday (and similar sales) would be the perfect time to get them. The same applies for Second Life. And store owners, take note: If it wasn’t for being able to look at a store’s Flickr stream to see what what they have, I wouldn’t had bought as much stuff.
