Social Media Meme

Before I waddle into this meme from a series started by Strawberry Singh, let me show you a picture of me in a bikini.

You are welcome.

What was the first social network you joined using your SL Avatar?
Is blogging considered a social network? I used to blog in RL, so I started a blog once I got going in SL. I also learned to find my way around SL by stalkingsearching through other SL blogs.

Which social networks are you currently on using your SL Avatar?
Bloggger, Facebook, Flickr. Add me add me add meeeee!

Which network is your favorite?
I am not sure, I think it depends on my mood swings.

Which network is your least favorite?
Um, none. I usually give up on a network if it cannot keep my interest for the first hour or so. That is also why I am not on many networks.

Which network do you have the most amount of connections?
Facebook, probably. After a few months into my vampire clan, a bunch of us decided to all go abusejoin facebook. I don't have many connections, but then I am voluntarily quiet most of the time.

How/Where do you usually read/use most of your networks?
On my trusty old desktop. I have no laptop, no ipad, no smartphone. Serious.

What are your favorite social networking apps? (if applicable)
Nada, no ipad, no smartphone. My friends in RL think I live in a cave, notwithstanding that I have a virtual life and they don't.

What do you like most about social networking sites?
I like the fact that useful information and awareness can spread like a spam once they get onto a network. When there is nothing useful to be shared, I like reading humour and squealing at kittens and puppies.

What do you like least about social networking sites?
I try to be mild about this, but it's hard. I despise trollers and I wish that I can spray them with something.

Do you feel social networks are a good way to promote you/your brand/your work?
Social networks are definitely very effective tools for branding and marketing, but the user has to know how to get the best impact and continue to keep up and innovate.

What is your main reason for using Social Networks?
So that I can stalk!stay connected with people. I may or may not know them personally, but that's not the point. :p

Cleaning up my Style

I was doing up my photoshoot for the Glam Affair Amberly contest the other day when I realised how far I have come since, well, the beginning. I still have a long way to go, and maybe GIMP to learn or photoshop to buy, but I looked at this:

and then this:
which really wasn't that bad for a first attempt. :p

But I realised that it is time I can start looking like a halfway professional photographer. I've been toying with the idea of cleaning up "A Second Life Style" category for the last week, which is kind of unnecessary what with my plans to give up SL for a while in a couple of months' time (I will talk about it soon, I will!). But it's not like I am going to do anything more productive while waiting anyway.

So this is what I have decided. I have archived the "Style" posts into an older category and "A Second Life Style" will be starting anew. In the next few posts, I will be pulling out some photos from the past that I think is portfolio-worthy and use them to roll out an updated version of "A Second Life Style", with credits to the designers for items worn. Credits are something I have never done before because I think my photos are not good enough to bring justice to the stuff I've been abusingdressed in. But it is time now. Even if it is not, I am doing it. You are welcome.

Photoshoot 24

This one was done for Glam Affair's Amberly Photo Contest. It is over already (and I didn't win, of course) but I just thought I will post it here before I forget.

Procrastination Meme

Another meme started by Strawberry Singh. My newest favouritest hobby now is to go stalk everybody who comments on her meme posts.

What is the rez date for your current SL Avatar that you use most often?
Tashi Core - 1st May 2010

Where was the first place you made friends as a newb and got to know people in Second Life?
I can't remember the name of that place. It was some kind of tribal-looking hub for noobs to hang out at. A guy named Adler picked me up and took me to a freebie shop at Velvet Manor. He got bored waiting for me to learn how to buy stuff and took off. I think I took a few hours figuring that out, as it never struck him that he could teach me how and it never struck me that I should ask him to teach me how.
Later on I did some research and went to hang out at NCI in Kuula, where I really started meeting people.

Where do you spend most of your SL time now?
In either of my 2 skyboxes, one in my bloodlines home at Eturnal Night where I play dress-up, the other in Samia where I build and work on my business.

Who is your closest friend in Second Life? (only pick one)
This is a painful one, my first best friend in SL left without a word last year. Karen, if you are reading this, I miss you very much and want to talk to you again.
There is also Eve Paradiso and Sashia Rae, and I don't really want to choose between these 3.

What is the most favorite thing in your inventory? (only pick one)
Only one?! I.can't.pick.only.one.

The last thing you purchased in Second Life?
Glam Affair skins from the Gatcha Arcade.

What color clothing does your avatar wear most often?
I can't stick to any colour, not SL, not RL. :)
Favourite colour is white though.

Do you prefer to walk, run or fly?
Crash, usually while trying to fly.

What is the craziest thing you've ever done in SL?
Probably fighting my first bloodlines war.
There was a cry that my clan was under invasion, I answered without thinking, I tped to the arena, I fought without any training, I didn't even know how to operate my HUD properly, I killed people, people killed me twice as much, and my army lost despite outnumbering the invaders.
(I learned post-war that I broke some moral ethics of war conduct, so I IMed the guy I killed the most to apologise, you know, in case he took his game seriously. He was quite nice about it and offered to help train me. He turned out to be a rather good teacher and gave me a lot of good tips but I think I was a disappointment to him. I can only let people slaughter me so many times before I grow bored.)

Who would you like to play YOU, in the movie of your SLife?
It's up for audition, but I doubt anyone wants to take me on. Do you?

My Seven SL facts

After not blogging for almost 3 months, I decided to jump on the meme wagon started by Strawberry Singh.

I've not had much to say since things are well and boring, and I am planning my phase-out from SL. Will update about this soon. I am excited. Blabbering.

So, 7 SL facts about me in no particular order:

1. I am a... virgin. Yes, it is hard to say this outright with a straight face because pixel virginity is such an important issue. *coughs* But it's not a surprise by now, I guess, that I have ZERO interest in changing my SLexual status.

2. I am a little anti-social in SL (probably RL too), and I use my RL timezone shamelessly as an excuse to isolate myself. I do come out of my shell in a blue moon though, and there are a handful of friends in SL whom I will always chat with.

3. I had secret crushes on two guys in SL. I enjoyed admiring them from afar but never wanted to pursue them.

4. Tashi is my RL name, albeit not my legal name.

5. I am not sure if Tashi Core is my first AV. I remember registering a Tashi Wind many years back, likely in 2003 when SL first started and I was a fresh graduate. But I did not catch on to the SLife then and I can't remember what happened to Wind, or if she really happened at all.

6. I am embarassed about how many alts I have. Not telling. :X

7. I don't see SL as a separate life from RL. SL is a channel to express a side of my personality that is stymied in RL, that's all. It is all part of who I am in a fuller circle.
