Everyone like’s a good challenge now and then and here at the [SL] Support Blog we’re trying to keep up to date with the new and fun inspiration challenges that can get you going. There is an amass array of different types of challenges but without going into so many different ones, I’m just going to point you in the general direction and point out a couple!
First off is the newest challenge from Shiloh Selene called “Fifty Shades of Sexy”, inspired by Gogo’s “12 Days of Lingerie” – this challenge will focus on the sexy of course! Starting January 13th and lasting 50 weeks, you’re inspired to be as sensual, sexy, and seductive as possible! For more information, take a look at her blog! Flickr group is HERE.
Next is the newest craze that is taking over for Sookie Treillis called “The Twisted Color Challenge”. With Luna Jubilee’s “52 Weeks of Color Challenge” finally ending, Sookie took over the reigns and twisted it up a notch. Here you’ll find a new twisted color pattern for each week. Blogs are posted on Sunday, same as Luna’s. You can check out her blog for more information and join the Flickr group HERE!
Next is Lucie Bluebird’s challenge called: “Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow”. You know how we do! So many different hairstyles we’ve accumulated over the years starts to add up! So get into those folders and start re-using. For more information on this challenge, check out Lucie’s blog and join the Flickr group HERE!
Lastly, Oakley Foxtrot pushes us to look back and check out our past. “Blast from the Past” is stepping back into those first few days/weeks of blogging. If you have it – find the very first outfit and picture you did for blogging and recreate. For more information, check out her blog and join the Flickr group HERE!
There are plenty of different challenges going about – for the ongoing google document to gander at you can view them here. All information is provided.

There is a lot of benefits about Second Life. It’s a place where people can get together and get to know one another on such different levels, that it almost escapes the mind. I know that when I first began Second Life, that I had joined because of a couple friends moving over from The Sims Online to a new platform.
As years (or months for some) go by, we have met numerous people along the grid. We have grown relationships far and wide, from country to country. We’ve met and hung out in world and also some of us have ventured outside Second Life and gone into the Real. We take these friendships and relationships to heart.
In our community, we like to take care of those who are close to us. We all want what is best for them and at times, our friends and loves go through hard times and things happen that they cannot control. We came together for Gala Phoenix for One Voice and also Gospel Voom when his boy Archie got seriously injured. We even have our dear Elysium Hynes starting Unhinged in the next week for a dear friend of hers. We do this – designers and bloggers – because we care and because we want to take care of our friends.
I know that sometimes, people don’t agree and that people might think it’s an abuse of the system to use Second Life to raise awareness or to raise donations for personal causes, but it’s usually those who are close to the person in need that start the event or fundraiser. I have no personally issues with it, and think it’s a great way for the community to come together. It’s a personal choice on whether or not you as a person (designer or blogger) want to support when something comes along.
I’m writing this because a dear friend, Sway Dench, is in need and a group of designers and bloggers have come together for a small fundraiser. I’m asking – if you’re interested as a blogger for this event, to contact me or Willow Zander in world. We’ll let the main coordinators know.

So a lot of stuff has been happening and this blog has gradually started to take off and expand just a bit. There is plenty of more work to be done on it but I wanted to sit back and highlight a few things:
As time goes on, these pages will fill up and become an ongoing resource for all of you. If you find anything that can be added to these pages, please let me know or someone from the Support Team.
One of the ideas that was brought up was the Destinations document that was started a bit back. I had originally left the google document open for everyone to use and add to, but unfortunately – I didn’t back it up and everything got screwed up. If you check the page where locations is, you’ll find new information on how to add a new place. Everyone can view the document still, but not add to it. I hope that this doesn’t inconvenience people too much.
Last but not least:
We’re looking for contributors to write a few blog posts for the [SL] Blogger Support blog. What we’re looking for is those of you who are willing to write like ‘mini’ articles on blogging, fashion, events, photography, photoshop, etc. Also, interviews with designers as well! It can be anything that really relates to blogging in general that will help you and your fellow bloggers, as well as bring discussions around.
The articles can be posted on your own blog, but you will have author rights on the Support blog to post as well. If you are interested in this, please fill out the application and we’ll contact you on the set up.
Application is HERE
On that note, Happy Blogging Everyone!
