Change is gonna come

I’d like to use the Holidays to thank you all, readers and creators alike, for your continuing support over my past 10+ years of SL blogging adventure!
I hope you get to spend some time with your loved ones, and that you get to recharge some before 2018 is kicking in, which will without a doubt be another eventful and busy year! December is usually my think-a-lot month… not the best one for me personally, but still, introspection and resetting course is not a bad thing after all! Over the past years, I have seen the SL blogging scene change in a way that I have felt increasingly uncomfortable with. This may partially be due to the fact hat when I started blogging, there may well have been 25 bloggers all together, and right now, it feels like everyone and their mom are having a blog (and often doing a really good job at it too!). I’m just missing the old days, where I interacted with creators, often before they released their new items, testing, picking up the flaws that the creator might have overseen after all the hours of tedious working on that item, and actively contributing to making their next release the best they could do!… Read the restRose
