Avatar Bloggers Unite! By proclamation of, well, me, June is Avatar Blogger month!
Any Avatar Blogger who blogs about their adventures in 1 or more virtual worlds. Any worlds. Gaming worlds. Building worlds. All that matters is that your avatar is the blogger.
30 posts in 30 days. It’s easier than it sounds! Don’t think you’re writing the great novel! Just a simple post a day. A short post. A photo post. Any post. 30 posts in 30 days.
Anyone who accepts the challenge gets a cool badge for starting, another cool badge if you succeed, a kickoff party, a completion party, events along the way, AND we’ll feature your blog on it’s very own large-screen monitor and treadmill desk at the LEA11 Sim in the virtual world of Second Life. Did I mention parties? How do you sign up? Easy! Just put your name and blog URL in the comments below and we’ll set up your computer workstation immediately!
ALICE IN CORNELLAND
Avatar Bloggers rock and June is a great month to celebrate them. But the project is also part of the “Alice in Cornelland” project which seeks to examine immersive living in virtual space.
• Alice in Cornelland
It’s actually exactly one year, kk 53 weeks, since Syp’s awesome “Newbie Blogger Initiative” to get more avatars from all worlds to start blogging. If you aren’t a blogger yet, what better month to start than June! There are so many peeps who’d love to help you with anything you need!
I said there’d be cool badges, right? Yeah. Anybody wanna design those?
