Today I took a trip to the Caverns of Aleva, which is home to four parcels. Caprice, Caprice II, Cantrip De Savor and Easy A. Kaelyn had pointed me in the direction of the sim, and I’m so glad she did. It is absolutely perfect for blogging. There are many beautifully set up scenes that bloggers and others can put to good use. This post will be fairly picture intensive because of the four sections that belong to two friends.
Caprice, Caprice II and Easy A are done by Asa Vordun and Cantrip De Savor is done by Dez Akemi. Asa has been doing sim design for awhile, and Dez joined her when she wanted a parcel of her own. The parcels are connected by tunnels, with the exception of Easy A, the beach section, which can be reached through a gate from Caprice, or from a bay on Cantrip De Savor. Now onto the pictures!
This week has been a whirlwind – so many things are on my plate right now that I’m about to overflow and don’t know which way to end up. I finally had a chance to take a picture the other night for the upcoming Fantasy Gacha Carnival and Enchantment – two fabulous events that start on the 1st of February, of course, embracing the genre of role-play and your own fantastical desires.
So while I was figuring out what to blog, I realized that as a blogger it takes a lot of work just to actually think of what to “blog”. With so many offerings to be had and choices to make on what we’d like to “show off”, it can get a bit overwhelming. If we had our way – we’d blog all the things and be happy about it, but really who has the time? And to be honest – how does one go about combining the right items to get the right look? How will YOU stand out among the other 2000+ bloggers out there (maybe an exaggeration but a lot!)
My only recommendations for this dilemma would be to blog what YOU think is your mark. You can either be the cookie-cutter blogger that does the same thing everyone else does, or you can step up and try something different. Your style defines who you are and how you make it in this place. It really does. I noticed an ongoing trend when bloggers started to post their blogs through the Fantasy Gacha Carnival group: certain creators got blogged right off the bat, others…fell into the midst. We wonder why this happens, and sometimes I think a lot has to do with what we see about, especially on Flickr, blogs and Plurk. There are others out there that are waiting to be defined and make their marks as well. You are a marketing tool for them. So make it happen. Take your spin on what you like, what you see and step it up. It’s a great big world out there.
