And so, Avatar Blogger Crossfit month has come to an end. I tossed my name into the pool because I knew it would give me the incentive to work on this blog more, rather than allowing it to fall into neglect as occasionally happens. I’m happy with how things have turned out, I didn’t do tooo bad, I managed to make posts for most of the days of the month, although towards the end I had RL interfere with getting in world and doing things, and I fell off the regular posting wagon.
My goal for July: to keep up with posts! Not daily, perhaps, but certainly at least a couple times a week. I’ve noticed this month that my renewed interest in SL has caused me to shift focus away from my other primary blogging outlet, where my interest was already starting to wane a little. While that will keep me more likely to look for good content to put here, it might tempt me to toss random vaguely RL interest things into the mix at times. This is still somewhat of a topic-free zone, where I’m mostly wanting to show off my SL photos or ramble about something and it may have haphazard appeal to others, but I’m having fun 😀
Other goals for the second half of 2013 related to SL and indirectly sparked by participating in blogging challenges: Make use of the facebook page I made for my avi. It was initially created as an experiment to see how pages work so I could advise my husband, but since it’s there I should be doing something with it 🙂 And Plurk… darn it. I keep looking at Plurk, I keep trying to figure out how to get in the swing of things, I am always reading about how the SL community on Plurk is extremely interactive and that’s where all the news is to be found, but outside of a couple bloggers and a few content creators I have no idea who the “must follow” plurk accounts are. And I’m not sure of the etiquette there, do you follow other people as a fan and wait for them to follow you back as a fan, which makes you ‘friends’ or do you request to be a friend right at the start? Suggestions and advice are appreciated!
I hope everyone else has had fun with blogger month! I’m really glad I decided to jump in and participate, even if I didn’t keep on schedule. But I don’t consider my lack of a daily post a failure, I still managed to get myself moving, get back to posting some nice shots up on Flickr, meet some of the other bloggers, and discover some really good blogs that I hadn’t seen before. I’d say this was a win all around! \(^_^)/
