Second Life – Looking Forward, Looking Back

Second Life turns 10! Let’s look at where we came from:

How long have you been in Second Life?
What have you been doing since you got here?

I logged into the  Second Life grid in December 2007.  Looking back and trying to recall my 1st impressions :

Lost most of the time. Sometimes frustrated. Totally in awe and fascinated!

I was going to wear one of Harper’s avatars but the state of the grid today made me leary, sooooo , I dug out some early photos to share.

This blog is so much a part of my avatar history, I owe that to my friend Alianna Logan. who pushed me to blog when I started to work for Opium Fashions and photoLIFE, and now operates a very busy blog feed herself!    DesigningSL * BloggingSL * HuntingSL * LivingSL

I’ve been blessed to meet and work with some fabulous photographers and Second Life Artists!

It was an amazing time for me, I met some wonderful people, made some great friends and the really cool part, it is global!

There have been runways, magazine covers, store ads, and above it all there was fun and great people.

I spent a ton of time here learning :

NCI Logo (No Tagline)

and later as an instructor. I still direct new avatars to NCI.

I did the Mentor thing too, that was awesome!

I kissed a Linden once !

And searched for the Lindens Halloween Bear in the Cornfield!

I’ve been a huge Second Life music fan girl too! Guess who my favorite singer is !

The HAPPIEST day of my Second Life?


We partnered and partnered, and run a very successful Second Life business.

4 years and I have been thrilled by every moment.

I am also very fortunate to work as business manager for Stefan Buscaylet, creator of LUMIPro.

I am a staff photographer at BUSTed, which I love doing. The models and the others on staff are a great group !

So that is my Second Life to date! Looking back is fun and looking forward to even more fun!


So , that is my Second Life evolution. I know I’ve left tons out but this blog and my flickr are the memories of my Second Life.

Doing this post has made me smile!

Happy SL10B to you all !
