No more ugly wrists

New year, new something. I want to balance my both lives and find some new and inspiriting things to do. I love chilling and wearing pajamas, but I want to be more active and have less pajama days!

Since I first read about mesh hands I have wanted to own them. I have no idea why it took so long…but now I finally bought SLink hands (elegant 1). No proper pics yet, I am still looking the most perfect poses:) pajama2_001

pajama3_001I have already wrote about my cats. I don’t know how long I enjoy interacting with them but it is nice to have a SL hobby:) I have tried many: building (I suck), designing (too unpatient), machinima (too self-critical after few finished machinimas).

Blogging is more than a hobby for me. Right now it is almost a lifesaver. In Finnish I am a writer/author, published many books and articles and blogged since 1999/2002. I also teach regularly how to blog and maintain a good blog. BUT: my last book was published 2011 and since then I have not written anything – expect this blog. With this blog I keep away TOTAL writer’s block while I try to start writing in Finnish again.

Everyone wants to have more readers, me too. My first steps was to syndicate my blog on few feeds  (list of my feeds under my blogroll), – but most of all, write and take pics with more time and forethought but still with no stress and having a blast:)

I have been in SL since 2006. My most active years have started 2009 – after that I has been inworld regularly daily/weekly/monthly – depending how busy my RL is.

I regret only one thing: why don’t I start blogging earlier! Or at least take more pics! When I now look back my old entries and pics, I can easily remember houses, environments, lights and shadows, what did I saw when I stand at my old living room/bedroom/balcony and turned over…

I am thinking of this because during next year I might have an opportunity to test/use Oculus Rift. If only seeing my avatar living and moving on the screen impacts me quite powerfully, I can not imagine how it feels when SL experience is even more alive.

I am not a very good SL (commercial) blogger because I use my old furniture a lot. They bring back memories and using old stuff suits also with my mixed reality profile: IRL I have always loved second hand shops, flea markets and old, recycled things. If I am an anti-consumerist IRL, why would I change that attitude inworld. I lovelovelove talented SL content creators, but I do not want buy stuff just for a one pic. Everything you see, is just like I live my SL.
