Purple Velvet

When giving constructive feedback, pretty much everyone has heard of the “sandwich” method. You say something nice about the person, followed by the “meat” of the issue that you have with them, and end things on a positive note. Over the years, I have noticed that people generally don’t know how to do this method correctly. They give some random compliment, followed by berating them about the issue, and sometimes do not even give the last part. It can leave the person who is getting the feedback with mixed feelings at the least, and personally attacked at worst. I was reading this post about another way to give feedback called the “velvet hammer“.

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 .

Happy Holidays!

Hey guys! I wanted to wish you all a belated Merry Christmas, and I hope that you are all well during this holiday season. I hurt my thumb on Christmas and since it’s been so cold the past week, I haven’t felt like doing much. So it’s been a push to get everything that I want to get done to close out the year.

Some Thoughts on Commitment

Hey guys! This has been a busy month for me. Yesterday The Fashion Loft had its first fashion show, and it was a success. Considering the fact that there were several events before and after our show, I was happy to see that we had at max just under 40 people at the sim. Since I got a lot of positive feedback from the last time I shared my thoughts, I thought I would share my sentiments on my recent experience.

Merry Christmas!

It’s all meant to wish people well, so let’s all just have fun!
