SL Blogger Meetup Announced – This Saturday 1pm @ Basilique

Tomorrow SL Blogger Support is holding a meetup – I’m excited to attend and meet some other bloggers and put some faces with names!

I’ve already heard a bit of chatter that the ‘salon chat’ rules are causing a bit of trepidation.

I hope lots of people attend – I can’t wait. 😀

Are you really sponsored?

Another interesting question for those of us who blog about SL!

Spotlight on you 1So my study brain has been activated. It’s a few days until I start classes and it seems that I’ve started analyzing and questioning everything. Either that or I created a monster the first time I posted my opinion. Either way, I’ve been thinking. A lot.

Sponsored. It’s an interesting word when it comes to blogging in second life.

Second Life Blogger Eve Kazan returned from a holiday abroad in Spain to find WordPress had taken down three snapshots she published on her blog post. Prometheus Creations Studio, owned by Second Life resident Irine Abbot, filed the DMCA with WordPress’s owner, Automattic Inc on May 22nd.

Creator Irine Abott of Prometheus Creations first communicated with Ms Kazan on May 14th about the alleged infringement of the snapshots she published on April 3, 2014, via Facebook:

I was happy to see the robotic arms used in creative ways. However I was not happy to see my products used in commercially advertising a competitor, presenting the impression that they are from Neurolabs. I would appreciate it if you could please either remove the photos or add the product listing of the arms in the post as you did with

Tuesday Tidbits

tidbit-tuesdayI was a little under the weather yesterday, so I didn’t spend much time on the computer.

So, of course, there are lots of things to report. 😀

  • The Avi Choice Awards voting closed yesterday.  The winners will be announced at the ceremony this Saturday, Feb. 28.
  • Blogger has made a change to its ‘adult content’ policy – so if you have a blogspot blog, you might want to check it out.  I have used Blogger, but I much prefer WordPress. 😀
  • Lady Garden Cabaret will have their monthly show this Friday at 3pm.
  • The Waterfront Theater will perform ‘Jersey Boys’ on Friday at 3pm.
  • The Sci-Fi Convention is open and will run through March 1 – if you haven’t stopped by to check it out, add it to your to-do list.
  • Strawberry Singh had an interesting Monday Meme about ‘things SL made people do or learn.’
  • I haven’t seen anything about Firestorm’s latest Tool Tip Tuesday video, but I’m looking forward to it. I always learn something new. 🙂

I have a busy day ahead of me, so that’s it for now.

Enjoy your Tuesday!!
