... let's just share a moment together ...
Blogging isn't about the numbers for me. Although, I have noticed a change. Comparing the numbers. A change in visitors, a change in posts, a change in traffic and a definite change in the kind of posts I like to do. Significantly so, that I questioned myself what could be happening. Take January 2021. Total posts 19 in comparison to January 2023 where I posted 26 times. Visitor counts 825 vs 198. Views: 1818 vs 460. I've expanded my posts to include Facebook and dropped discord unless required by sponsor. My feed share is the same. My follower base in up slightly. Even then numbers from flicker are wildly different over previous year's numbers. I went pro, this the second year to be doing so. Still, the engagement with readership is low. Why? Maybe I just love blogging more than others care about my posts. Is the market of readership switched to other forums about second life activities? Perhaps, to many Photo/details/URLs/ posts compared to a bit of writing, telling a story THEN a photo post like I am doing today. I can't pinpoint it. I just feel the shift. With that said, blogging is still not about the numbers for me. I appreciate the comments and likes, and the group invites others take the time to share with me, but blogging is my creative outlet. I get to put RL aside for the hour or two that I'm blogging either creating spaces or dressing up for fun. Of course, to be hired by brands, they check out the numbers. That's the Ying and yang of it all. The irony in popularity. If my posts are well recieved, I'm creating more exposure for the brand I'm marketing. Should I care about the numbers? I suppose, I should, since I've noticed the shift. Perhaps look for ways to draw in more attention or engagement with the second life citizens. If I figure it out, I'll share so we all can grow together. Until next time ...

Shopping in SL has shifted. Events driven with Pricing higher than ever, is becoming dull.  I remember when an item was featured at an event, there was a discounted price. After that, the item went to full price and was available at the main store or marketplace. So, why clammer to get there first? For me, I am leaning more towards " I'll get it later at the same price".  In fact, I love the Happy Weekend and Saturday Sales much more than what goes on at the events. Buying direct from my favorite brands, supporting them while getting a hell of a bargain! What's not to love.  Brands are getting more and more creative about the weekends sales too. Retexturing, redesigning previous items, freshening up what is a sure hit, again for a great price. And then there are those brands who seem to have endless creativity and just can't be ignored. The quality is grand and different from what has ever been released before. Who doesn't love a new item for a sale price? Cmon, I dare you to disagree! One thing is for sure, I have been in SL since 2010 and I have seen items come and go. I think good and hard before pressing the button to buy if I already have a similar item in my inventory. It has to be really special for me to double/triple up on that bedroom set or bathtub since I have those already. If your brand is offering pre-linked sets!?! I am a fan! Roads, fences, walkways. Please don't give me a thousand strands to put together. Link Sets I say! Those are just my thoughts. Until next time ...
