I’m feeling quite emotional today, but in a good way. Y’see, overnight Kittywitchin’ surpassed 200000 page views, and for me that is an enormous personal achievement. I’m absolutely stoked by this.
As I’ve written many times before Kittywitchin’ has never been anything other than the blog of an ardent Second Life hobbyist; and even after 8 years of writing about Second Life I’ve still got so much to learn about the darn place! But one thing has remained constant, and that is the love I have for the virtual world that I also call home.
This past fortnight has been a challenge. Windows 10 really messed up my ability to log in and blog, but slowly and surely (and thanks to my amazing tech-wizard boyfriend) things are starting to get back to normal. My PC isn’t quite as sick as it was, and I can actually rez in-world for the moment without crashing spectacularly. Huzzah!
Not being able to log in really brought it home how much my virtual life means to me. I was in despair at a few points during the week. It’s beyond a habit for me now; I do actually have to log-in as part of my day, even if just for a few minutes. I’m like Parzival in ‘Ready Player One’ logging into the Oasis on a daily basis and although I don’t yet have a haptic suit and gloves, I do have 3D glasses and I hope to get an Oculus Rift when they (hopefully) launch in Spring 2016. That will bring a whole new element to my time in world!
What is Kittywitchin’s next goal? Well, for the immediate future it’s to keep writing about Second Life. But further on down the line I don’t know if I will be writing about Second Life or Project Sansar. As someone who adores her current virtual existence the idea of leaving this occasionally buggy and often frustrating world for a next-gen platform is actually quite hard to even contemplate at the moment.
So until then Kittywitchin’ will carry on, faithfully documenting the many shopping trips I make, the events that I visit and most of all sharing with you the fun that I hope, no I’m sure, that I will continue to have in this mad, crazy metaverse that I call home.
Thank you so very much for reading my blog.
(Now, if everyone can just get out of Kustom 9 so I can get in, that would be super-awesome!)
