I’m A Podcaster!

Sooo… yesterday, I went and made a thing…

It just so happened that 18th February is my rez-day, and the fifth anniversary of my first entering Second Life. So it felt like the right time to take this step. 🙂

Avatar Evolution, Continued

This post was originally written in November 2019.

Since I last updated this blog, there have been a few changes in Second Life. One has been the release of a new feature into the Second Life Viewer (and now the Firestorm Viewer that I use) called Bakes On Mesh. Yes, I know, not very self-explanatory, especially if you don’t know much about Second Life or other virtual worlds. In a nutshell, it’s a new way of dressing up your avatar, or rather an old way that can now be used with newer mesh-based avatars as well as traditional SL ‘system’ avatars.

The other day, Strawberry Singh, whose blog I read regularly, posted one of her occasional challenges to get people to show off their Second Life avatars. It has been a while since I talked in detail about mine (if you’re interested in reading my previous post on my avatar’s evolution, you can find it here.)
