Intelligence is the wife, imagination is the mistress, memory is the servant. Victor Hugo
I’ve been putting off this blog post for a little while. This past week has been stressful inworld for photographers, bloggers, and creators. Flickr is imposing new rules, turning out community upside down. There are some changes going on and I’d like to touch upon a few things.
Many residents are now switching to Instagram over Flickr. Last week, Flickr announced a cap of a 1,000 pictures on free accounts. Residents are now expected to label pictures as screen shots as well, meaning that groups need to change their settings to allow screenshots. And if you link pictures to any form of business, you must be pro to do so, which leads me to my next topic. Many bloggers link their pictures to events inworld, which deals with an exchange of funds. So to be safe, I paid for pro. Other bloggers should consider going pro or to instagram.
As soon as I heard of the changes, I sought out my fellow bloggers, creators, and photographers. Many of them have decided to create accounts on Instagram. I am also now there as well. I am also contemplating starting a tumblr blog as an extension to my blog.
Many may not realize it.. but.. Instagram has very strict rules about nudity and depictions of sex…as well as sex itself. I would highly suggest that residents use Tumblr, if you’re a blogger, photographer, or creator who creates things of the X rated nature, then tumblr is a good option to display such works. I don’t always just blog pg and g rated material and will let my followers know of any addition to social media platforms to display my work. But for the time being, you can find me on Flickr and Instagram.
In time, things will calm down a bit. Life will return to normal. But for now, we’re all experiencing some changes. It will take time. I want to remind everyone that humor is helpful in those stressful moments.. and… well chocolate.
Normally, I would have blogged Uber by now, but setting up an Instagram account took some getting use to. I know excuses..excuses. But I’m here now!! I swear! And I’m getting into the swing of things once again.
To relieve some stress, I headed over to Uber and Fameshed. A lot of my decor was purchased from both of these events. My entire outfit is from Uber. I saw this wonderful corseted dress by Junbug at Uber. I also found this great eyeshadow by Veechi and hair from Lamb. My boots are also available at Uber. They’re made by Reign. Foxwood created this really great set of furniture. I very rarely buy fatpacks for furniture, but I did pick up the fatpack. It is fast becoming some of my favorite pieces this fall season. I headed over to Fameshed and found the weathered chair, sconce and coat rack from DRD. Before I forget, I also bought a wine cart from peaches and the mirror by Sayo, both are available at uber. Last but not least, the skybox is from Semipiternal. I knew that this skybox was perfect for my dark inspired after sexy Halloween picture.
Most times, I take very clean pictures, but I do enjoy taking pictures of a naughtier nature at times. I love this outfit. It makes me feel soft, yet sexy and bold. I think there is nothing better than being able to express oneself. I’ve seen many people discuss nudity and sex in second life. I don’t shy away from it, yet I embrace it. I walk a very fine line.
Speaking of walking that fine line of sex and nudity. This really hawt pose is by Cuca Designs. You can find this great pose at her mainstore. It’s located on the second floor. I’ve always enjoyed taking femdom inspired pictures. I like the idea of being a woman who is strong and powerful. It’s reclaiming sexuality and strength with no apologies. So often women shy away from their inner goddess within. I don’t believe in hiding it. I never will. So I will let my pictures serve as its own mistress, dancing with my imagination. I’ll capture the moment and let my memory serve to preserve the past.
In closing, I want to say that no matter what you struggle with in any world, you are much stronger than you think This past week has tested me in every possible way. Sometimes the best way to deal with struggle is taking a moment for yourself and doing something that you enjoy. I was reminded this week the importance of taking time for myself, planning visits with friends in that other realms that we call real life. I hope that if you notice the signs of feeling overly stressed, that you take a moment for yourself. I highly recommend Lost Girl on Netflix and Sabrina.. those were my poisons of choice this past week. Okay enough of that, enjoy shopping and bring a friend along.
As always, be kind to one another.
