Today's question(s): Why did you become a blogger? How has it enriched your life?
Before joining SL in January of last year, I had already been blogging for about 3 years. I have a RL blog that I still post to occasionally, and I began a SL blog within a week of joining. I joined SL as an academic because the academic community was all a-buzz about the possibilities of teaching in a virtual world, and as a sociologist/criminologist, I saw a lot in SL that I thought was fascinating. I felt like I needed a place to record my observations, and my 1st post was within a week of rezzing. I am a little embarrassed by those early entirely, horribly, shamefully newbish posts. I haven't deleted them, but they are hidden.
I had no idea at the time that there was a blogging community, or feeds, or anything of the sort. The 1st other blog I found related to SL was Lizzie Lexington's blog and much of what I learned about SL, I learned from reading her blog.
Since it's beginning, this blog has morphed from basic notes on the discovery of SL to fashion and random ponderings. But, at it's beginning, I started blogging just to record my thoughts, nothing more.
I wouldn't say blogging has enriched my life. No. Not blogging. I don't even know that SL has enriched my life. It provided an escape during a tough time in my life. I went through a bad break up last year, and I found that being online took my mind away from my troubles. Blogging and making stuff give me something to do in SL. It's all more of a diversion than an enrichment. Without SL, I'd probably just be watching TV, so at least it's something mentally active. When I think of life enriching things, I think of my beautiful daughter, and my wonderfully affectionate little doggies, I think of how lucky I am to have the family and the job that I have and how lucky I am to have a safe, warm, loving home.
