BBBC Final Topic!

Yeahhhh! Final topic! We pretty much do the same final topic each year, but honestly, I think it’s a great one. The question is the same for both the SL and the non-SL bloggers, but choose the one that is for you.

If this is your first BBBC… What did you get out of your experience? Do you think it will change the way you blog in the future?

If you’re a veteran…. Did you find this year to be harder or easier than previous years? Did you have fun? What did you get out of it this time around? Do you think you’d do it again?

BBBC Topic #4 – What’s my age again?

If you’re looking for the sign up list, it’s over here.

Hey, we’re halfway done! I hope you guys are having as good of a time with it as I am! It’s been awesome reading your blogs! I’m still working on why a few of them are not updating correctly on the blogroll. If any of you have ideas, shoot them at me. I never said I was technical. πŸ™‚

And don’t forget, tomorrow there is a Hump Day Party going on at 7pm SLT! We’ll be in the happy party ball, but there’s not really a theme. Just dress however you want and come up to have some fun. I’ll have the SLurl tomorrow, since I’m not in world at the moment to get it for you guys.

Okay! Topic number four!

SL Bloggers – Is your avatar more or less your current biological age? Do you portray a younger avatar, or older? Why is this?

RL Bloggers – Do you lie about your age? Do you think you act your age? Are you where you thought you’d be at your current age?

Topic #3 – Relationships

If you are looking for the sign up post, it’s right here.

Just as a reminder, we have a big Hump Day party coming up on Wednesday at 7pm SLT. I know, I know, it’s really bad timing for some of the challengers that aren’t over here on my side of the world, but we’re going to try to get one going on the weekend at a better time for you guys.

Okay, this topic was one that we touched on back in 2008, but I think it’s a great one, so here we go. πŸ™‚ And remember, you can choose either one to write about, or squish them together, or you don’t need to write about this topic at all if you don’t want to. It’s just there if you need it.

SL Bloggers – How hard do you think it is to find a relationship in SL? If you have an SL relationship, have you met in the physical world? Would you meet them? Do you think it would change your SL relationship if you met?

RL Bloggers – Would you start a relationship with someone you met online? Would you have a problem telling people that’s where you met? Do you think it’s easier to meet someone online rather than at work or at a club?

Inspired

This is a great little meme from the mind of Zoe Connolly, and since I have nothing else to talk about today, and I’m waiting for laundry to finish, I thought I’d get it done. πŸ™‚

So who inspired my avatar?

I didn’t really have an idea in my head of what I wanted to look like when I started on my shape tweaking. I wanted to be beautiful, I knew that much. I wanted to be somewhat petite [although I am taller than I was for months], and I wanted to be slender but still with some curves. Basically, I wanted to be what I have never been in my real world.

My face came about after many careful tweakings. I have never wanted the little pucker mouth that is so popular, although in doing that, I’ve given up the right to wear probably 75% of the skins out there because they are more designed for that mouth. When I put them on, I have huge Bratz lips and that’s never good.

The funny part is that a few people who have seen my RL photo say that my avatar’s face looks like me. I know they’re being polite in not adding “if you lost 300 pounds,” but it makes me laugh because in certain skins, my face looks like a much younger version of my mother. So I guess in a way, my avatar has been inspired by my desire to look more like the majority of the women in my family. Small, beautiful, delicate.

The clothing I dress my avatar in are much like I would [and sometimes do] dress like in my real world. The cute skirts, great jeans, t-shirts and halter tops, flip flops, etc. Although my avatar wears heels that I would certainly break my ankles in, and lingerie that I would be embarrassed to death to wear in front of anyone, the style really is my own. I prefer my Second Life to be better than my first, but still close to it, with bits of fantasy thrown in here and there. Unlike those who consistently are able to pull off the better fantasy look, I feel more comfortable simply being me, but a prettier me.

So I guess the real answer to the question is just that: The me I feel I am inside, the one that isn’t easily seen in the real world, that is my inspiration. I’m not perfect, and neither is my avatar. There are times when I’m having body issues in the real world that I project upon her [usually seen through my “My avatar is fat” comments], but I’m able to work through them that way. I use her to do things, to speak my mind, to remember that I’m competent and intelligent. Through her, I have grown and become a better person.

Hmm…so really, who is the inspiration? Me, or her? I guess we’re both just inspiring each other.

BBBC Topic for Friday – FINAL!

Ready for the final one? πŸ™‚ This is also semi-kinda what we did last year, but I couldn’t think of a better topic to do for this year’s challenge.

If this is your first BBBC… What did you get out of your experience? Do you think it will change the way you blog in the future?

If you’re a veteran…. Did you find this year to be harder or easier than last year? Did you enjoy yourself? Do you think you’d do it again?

End of challenge wrapup tomorrow evening! πŸ™‚

BBBC Topic for Thursday

Awesome Awesome party tonight! It was so much fun and it was great getting to meet a few of you from the challenge, along with seeing all my favorites! Everyone looked SO good and there was just color overload! You can see a bunch of pics I took in my Snapzilla account. I took a few more to my desktop, but I ended up crashing after a bit. lol

We did this last year, and so we’re doing it again. πŸ™‚
