It’s Time To SLX Connect!

Image

There’s a new social network in town! It’s called SLX Connect and describes itself as a ‘Social Life Xperience Network’ for SL Avatars.

It’s the brainchild of Athayus Quan, who has been working really hard over the past few months to establish this new site and it looks as though the work is paying off; already the stats are showing that the site has jumped significantly in worldwide rankings in a very short space of time.

If you use Facebook then you won’t find the site intimidating to use at all. It’s easy to navigate and establishing a profile is very simple. You can add all kinds of updates including  photographs, videos and even Soundcloud playlists if you so wish. If you are a huge fan of social networks then I’ve no doubt that this one will make a great addition to your portfolio.

I’m really enjoying using it so far.  As much as I like Plurk I find the drama and bitching that are sadly an inherent part of the Plurk way of life overwhelming at times and having a different site that’s purely dedicated to Second Life avatars is a refreshing alternative.   Athayus has promised lots of updates and is working really hard at making the site user-friendly and relevant to the Second Life audience, and I  think he’s doing a great job!

He’s also offering a special deal to potential advertisers; if you’re considering advertising your virtual business then you may want to take him up on his promotional deal which is limited to just ten sponsors. Places are sure to go quick, so don’t miss out!

Here’s wishing Athayus and everyone involved with SLX Connect the very best of luck and you can visit my page by clicking HERE. 

Don’t forget to Facebook! (Avatar Blogger Crossfit Challenge (Entry 10 of 30))

I’m just about on track for my posts as part of the Avatar Blogger Month. In fact, I got a GOLD STAR! (Yay me! Although I was disappointed I couldn’t participate in the group photo. I was recovering from a night shift though.)

It’s been a challenge but manageable so far, and I’m really enjoying the fact that I’ve been exposed to new Second Life blogs, so more reading material for me (and you too!)

I’ve realised that because of my RL commitments I can’t possibly blog every single day, but I can plan what I will be blogging about and that’s been an especially welcome side-effect of the challenge.

I always try to keep my blog-posts varied, so not every post has a picture if one isn’t needed. But I have realised that I missed making ‘Look Of The Day’ posts, so after featuring one earlier today I think I’ll be increasing the frequency of them in future.

Incidentally, if you weren’t already aware, Kittywitchin’ has a Facebook page.

I use Facebook in my real-life a LOT (I might be a little bit addicted) but I find it extremely useful, and It also fills a gap where my Second Life writing is concerned.

My blog regime is usually 3-4 posts a week, but I can increase my output by featuring snippets of information on a daily basis via my Facebook page, something that I’m going to do more of in future.

So, if you’re not a fan of Kittywitchin on FB, here’s your opportunity to make amends!  

(And don’t forget to friend me on Plurk too!)
