Here I am in all my glory to show you the new set of piercings and paint by Haus of Darcy…. pretty freaking cool, yeah?  Sanvean of course conjured memories of seeing Dead Can Dance in the 90’s in Miami. I remember being so completely moved to tears when Lisa Gerrard sang. Click the bar below to see the full body and the style card.

I forgot that I completed Strawberry Singh’s  “My Blogging Journey Challenge” …. well I guess I didn’t really complete it since I never posted the answers. So here we go…….

Meme instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers to your post, delete my answers and input your own. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments so others can come by and read your answers as well!

  1. Which electronic devices do you use to blog with? I use my computer to create my blog posts and will occasionally edit on my phone or tablet….. there is nothing worse than publishing and then seeing a spelling error or missing word…. hours later….

  2. Do you have a mission statement for your blog, if so, what is it? The reason for my blog is to share what I find that excites me, and my hope is that it inspires the imagination of others and sparks their creativity.

  3. How do you feel about blogs that use their platforms to spread negativity? A blog is deeply personal and if we start censoring or telling someone what is right or wrong to blog, the blog will no longer be their personal journey. If a blogger’s intent is to spread negativity, smother them with love….

  4. Are you a grammar junkie? Do you thoroughly check your blog for errors before posting and/or do you judge other people’s posts if they contain errors? I find myself correcting misspellings or missing words more than I’d like to admit…I think my brain works faster than my fingers. I am not a grammar junkie per se, but it totally cracks me up to see bloggers who use a thesaurus to inject words into their blogs without fully comprehending the meaning of the new words they are using. There is no better formula for taking a perfectly logic sentence and transforming it into nonsensical garble than the use of unknown words in a thesaurus.

  5. If you could switch blogs with another blogger who would it be? This is a hard question because I admire so many blogs. I am going to cheat a little and say Dolls and Demons because then I get two bloggers for the price of one. I’d love to learn all those image editing ins-and-outs they both have a firm grasp of…… http://dollsandemons.wordpress.com/

  6. Has your blog/blogging style evolved over the year(s)? How? My blog originally followed fashion and music in SL. I wanted a theme when I first started blogging and I was captivated by the musical talent and wanted to highlight it. However, it quickly became more about our fantasy world and my personal world in SL. Since my enjoyment comes from creating fantastical images, it has evolved into images inspired by the designs of the amazing creators.

  7. What is the most extraordinary thing that has happened to you because of blogging? The most extraordinary thing would be the number of artists that I have met through my blogging journey. Collaborating and learning from people I admire has been the best experience ever. Perhaps the weirdest extraordinary thing would be when I was contacted by a national bank to ask if they could purchase the rights to my character and images. Umm. What? Why? No. lol.

  8. When it comes to Second Life blogs, there are different styles: Fashion bloggers, Lifestyle & Travel bloggers, Informative bloggers, and more. Which style do you prefer and where do you feel your blog fits in? I prefer blogs that use the platform to share their art and personal experiences. Creative writing and/or image treatment combined with sharing the art of designers and builders is what I am drawn to. Informative and Travel blogs would be a close second. I would hope my blog fits into what I described, but I guess it would best be defined as a Personal Journey.

  9. What has blogging taught you? Blogging is teaching me to let people inside again. After a soul crushing experience, I closed off the world. I’ve been healing a little bit at a time and with each new post I am more liberated from the chains of fear.

  10. Share your top 3 tips for new bloggers. Be honest.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
