Callie Cline is actively promoting an event that she has organised with her esteemed peers called ‘Blogger Appreciation Week’. As the name would suggest it allows for content creators to share their loving with us bloggy types, and to ‘thank us’ for all our hard work promoting items and generally writing the nonsense that we manage to get away with on a daily basis. I think it’s a lovely idea, and I confess was very touched by the concept, but to be honest, I feel appreciated each time someone drops me a note, some items for review or just spots me lurking in a corner and comes across to say “Hi” and tell me that that they read my blog:)
Nothing makes me happier than that actually. I always wanted to be a professional writer but like most things in life it didn’t quite pan out like that for me. Discovering Second life was a real turn on for me, because here was something I could fully immerse myself in, and to discover that people were blogging about in-world content made me realise that I could do the same for shiz and giggles too. I continually aspire to attain the heights of blogging greatness that uber blogs like Linden Lifestyles, my favourite fashion blog ever, reached. I’ve not scaled those dizzy heights by a long shot, but it’s good to have ambition and a goal to strive towards dontcha think? I know I’m not the only one that feels that way too, just look at the blogs in my ever-expanding sidebar; they are all seriously good at what they do and I feel a real sense of priviledge to be included amongst their ranks:)
I didn’t actually ever expect Kittywitchin to become as successful as it is, because it was first and foremost purely a vanity project written for my own enjoyment and just as a way of improving my writing skills and getting published…but this blog has opened a lot of doors for me, make no mistake about that. I think my greatest achievement by far was writing for The Avastar, and I was actually earning from that too, which was a real bonus.
I can’t say it was uber-Linden, but it was more than enough to get me some frocks to review! Like some bloggers out there I don’t get actually get drowned with freebies for review and nor do I expect to. It’s always a pleasure when they arrive of course, but the rest of the time is spent hunting down the latest releases and shelling out a few Lindens so that I can go home, pose away in my photo studio and share the results with you, dear reader. But let’s be starigh- no one forced me to do this, it was entirely of my own volition, so don’t feel sorry for me, no siree-because regardless of whether I have any Lindens or not I should always have enough brain cells to be able to track something down in world that I can write about….lol!
But back to the subject at hand, ‘Blogger Appreciation Week’. Thanks so much for organising this! I’m looking forward to it with much excitement and I’m very curious to see what you have in store for all of us bloggettes.
That said, I think it should also be ‘Reader Appreciation Week’, because without you guys bothering to frequent this blog from time to time there really wouldn’t be much point at all would there?
So here, have a Kitty hug (((hug))) and my heartfelt thanks, and feel free to give me one (ooer missus!) should you see me in world!
