With the New Year just around the corner, I’ve decided to make a few small adjustments within my Second Life & my blogging. This past year of blogging, and being a part of the Second Life Community has been rewarding, but also incredibly draining on me in numerous ways. I started off blogging & being a part of the Second Life Community as a bright, and bubbly individual, and within the last few months, I’ve watched that naturally optimistic personality, and consistent bubbly nature I possess, slowly fade away.
To those of you who have noticed these negative changes in me, I apologize. I’ve found myself being catty, grumpy, and overall negative towards not only countless people, but also countless things taking place in the community. This is not me, or who I want to be. It has always been my goal to make a positive impact in the community, and lately I’ve been more of a stormy rain cloud than anything else. I guess we all have our moments eh?
I’ve had quite a few days to sit and ponder the reasons for this & after a lot of contemplation I’ve come to realize that Second Life, and blogging have turned into work for me. I chalk it up to a new full time job in my real life taking most of my time, and also the growth my blog has experienced over the past year. I am NOT complaining, nor am I trying to view any of this as a negative thing. I’ve just come to realize that the pressures of making sure I blog every single item, and the pressures of blogging every single day are weighing on me in a negative way.
So enough of my pointless rambling. The point I’m trying to make is that my blog will now focus more on quality over quantity. When I make a new post I want to be putting my everything into it. I want to take my time on the photographs, have the opportunity to be picky over what I show on my blog, and really focus my energy and time on doing posts that I LOVE instead of post I feel are necessary.
If you are a designer and you don’t feel I’m owning up to my obligations of blogging your items, please feel free to remove me from your groups. You won’t see me throwing a public hissy fit over it, or looking at you in a negative way. If you need a blogger who will blog every single item you create, than I am simply not your girl.
That being said, I am so appreciative of those who continually support me and trust me with the items they create. I do hope to continue to showcase all sorts of beautiful items here in Second Life, I just may not be doing it at the speed some find reasonable.
I hope to really put a lot of love, effort, and work into this blog, but on my own accord. I want to be proud of what I show on here. I don’t want to feel like my blogging is a chore, added work, or just another task to be completed. I want it to be a reflection of the things I love here in the Second Life Community.
That being said, here our the credits for today’s post. I especially encourage you to stop by What Next and pick up the limited edition copies of these adorable bicycles. They even have one specifically for bloggers!
