Picture the scene: you’re at a party. It’s approaching midnight, there’s anticipation in the year and there’s a slightly tipsy avatar in front of you. She’s a bit hot mind; wearing vintage Last Call with her hair elegantly styled by Truth and her chops sporting the very best LAQ. The clock begins to chime, and she flings her arms around you, smothering you in a multitude of snogs, all the time cooing ‘Thank You!’ in your ear.
So this is me, and this is how I’d like to see in the New Year with you dear reader. Why am I covering you in snogs and thanking you?
Because with your support and continual patronage Kittywitchin’ is rapidly approaching 100,000 hits and to me that is not just astounding for a blog filled with all sorts of tripe and waffle, but also because I’m writing about a virtual world that only a select few choose to inhabit. It never ceases to amaze me how many people approach me in world about the blog and congratulate me on it, which always leaves me feeling really humble, but also dead proud.
I’m so glad that people enjoy it because it’s not written with any particular agenda, other than for me to write about subjects that I think are of interest to the general Second Life public, or to tell you about some amazing bargains that I’ve spotted, or just to share a giggly moment with you. Politicians are saying that 2011 is going to be a challenging year in real life, and I think the same applies in Second too. We’ve a new CEO for starters, and then there’s the growth of Second Life and the virtual economy to consider. Also, will mesh arrive and revolutionise content creation in the metaverse? Finally; will the breedable bubble burst due to the implications of the Amaretto Vs Ozimals lawsuit, or will we see even more breedable pets populating the grid? Add into the mix the integration of the teen grid, politics, griefing and whatever Prok is writing about this week and we’re guaranteed a bumpy, challenging ride. You know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way….
Happy New Year everyone!
(Especially to me because it was my FIFTH rezday yesterday! Nobody remembered mind, including me, but crikey, five years in-world! I must be MAD!)
