This is the first of my posts for the Big Bad Blogger Challenge 2010 hosted by the amazing Alicia Chenaux. As she states on her blog,
The BBBC started in 2008 as a way to give SL bloggers a little kickstart, and give people something to read. But it turned into a great sharing opportunity! We’ve really had a fun time the past couple of years . .
Why did you become a blogger? How has it enriched your life?
I started blogging for three main reasons.
1. I’m very passionate about virtual worlds especially Second Life.
I’m amazed every single day. I changed careers because I was so enthused by what was going on in virtual worlds. For me, the future of the web, will be based on the projects that we are all working on now. I am so inspired on a daily basis by how individuals and organizations are using the space and where it is going. I truly believe that Second Life and virtual worlds will transform the ways we connect, collaborate, learn and engage online. I also share Philip Rosedale’s idealistic views that Second Life and virtual worlds offer the opportunity to improve the human condition and change the world. (Yes, I just said that.)
2. I feel like I have something to offer.
I talk to many people who are involved in virtual worlds on a daily basis. Usually, they aren’t up to date on the recent news coming out of the different platforms. I spend a good part of my morning reading, exploring, and examining so that I can offer our clients, and you, the most cutting edge information and technology. Through this and my experience, I can offer an opinion that I can feel confident is valuable.
Blogging is such an amazing opportunity. Every time I post a blog entry, I have a chance to express, to connect, and to build relationships. I cherish every one of you who reads this blog, whether regularly or occasionally. You not only contribute to the Sand Castle community, but you also contribute to my education, and are a catalyst for me in many ways. For all of this.. I thank you.
