My RL friend, JoV, introduced the idea of blog to me many years ago. She is an avid book blogger and runs a very successful book blog called JoV’s Book Pyramid that I really enjoy reading. I tried like one book/reading challenge with her and another blogger. It was fun but I am a slow reader and felt bad when the rest of them had to wait for me to complete my reading. Plus, I am sometimes (well actually most of my free time not that I have a lot) in SL doing something I like too, so I didn’t participate further in any of the challenges. The idea of blog challenge, however, has been at the back of my mind since then.
Blogger challenge in SL seems fun to me and they are mostly pictures driven with some writing, which is something I enjoy doing in SL. So today, I have finally got myself started in the Memes blog challenge, championed by Strawberry Singh. I picked My Seven SL Facts Meme for the first challenge because… well you will read about it below.
My SL Fact #1:
I like to delete stuffs and at times accidentally delete something important. I have deleted style card and description notes that I have prepared and dued on the same day, and had to redo them very last minute. After the first experience, I always send a copy to a friend for safekeeping.
My SL Fact #2:
In line with Fact #1, I clean my trash a few times a day because I never liked my inventory size to go beyond 50K. At the moment it is at 65,007, way beyond my limits, so I need to stay calm and keep blogging until my next scheduled spring cleaning in June. God helps this super OCD!
My SL Fact #3:
As much as I love my home on the ground, I stand on the platform most time, styling, chatting with friends and taking pictures. A few things I MUST have on my platform - a pose stand, a wall behind where I place my pose stand for styling purpose (not for photography and don’t ask me why) and a runway!
My SL Fact #4:
My first job in SL was a lucky chair group spammer. I still like to play lucky chairs ocassionally and I spam my friend when I see their letters.
My SL Fact #5:
I had a SL family and a partnership between year 2007 and 2011, unfortunately most of the members have left SL. I still miss them dearly (Moon! Masaru! Where are you??). That remains as my best time in SL. Having said that, I am grateful that one of my very first friends that I met over lucky chairs is still around. /me hugs Clover Munro. <333
My SL Fact #6:
Some of you might already knew that, my SL firstname “Ai” is inspired by RL model Ai Tominaga. I have always wanted to be a model since young.
My SL Fact #7:
I made and sold T-shirts and gift boxes in the past. If you have items from the brand ”Back to B@sic” and “LAUGH” in your inventory, they could be made by me. :P The items are not that great but thank you very much to those friends that have supported me.
My SL Fact #8:
I have decided to add another fact to wrap things up for this post which explains why I picked this particular Meme topic to begin with, like a little get-to-know-me session before I get Meme deeper into the challenge. ^.^
….and that’s just me, I always likes to have a beginning and ending to everything I do. If I started something, I would work on finishing it even it might take longer (or forever)…so (message to Joy L) one day I will pick up creating again. I’m sure!
One day, I also hope to be a sim owner and build a fantasy theme that will offer store space to some of my dear designer friends in SL. I was almost going to do it but with a turn of a rl event, I have to shelf this idea. It seems to be a dream that will not happen anytime soon but it is still at the back of my mind.
Five years, going to be six soon, I’m grateful of what I have in SL todate. Some true friendship, people’s appreciation of my works (I just saw in a group that I am one of their Top Bloggers, among some really great one, and am really grateful for that recognition) and blogging and work opportunities. Thank you to those that believe in me.
