Avatar Blogger Month – Participant List!

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes —

Two avatar bloggers walk on treadmills at treadmill desk workstations and work on blog posts at the desk / computer monitors in front of them

Stuffery author Anarya Elderslie & Vaneeesa Blaylock working on blog posts from their treadmill desks.


 

Like the decathlon or the heptathlon, blogging requires many skills, and Blogger Crossfit is a fun, endurance activity that tests the blogger’s ability to write, shoot, layout, and more, all with speed and precision.

I hope I successfully fished all the Blogger/Athletes out from the large comments section on the original post. If I missed anyone I apologize, and please let me know with a comment below. By my count 21 Avatar Bloggers are taking up the challenge to do 30 posts in 30 days.

And so Dear Reader… all this means for you and me… is that we have to read 20 posts a day for 30 days! Easy! Right?
And without further ado, here are our 20 bloggers:

irez.me/author/lizziegudkov
Lizzie is using the first 12 days of June to premiere the 12 chapters of her new fiction work It Takes a Village, inspired by Goatswood, a Victorian Gothic residential role-play sim in Second Life

We’ve set up dozens of Treadmill Desks (work online and keep moving!) at the Avatar Blogger Crossfit gym at Utopia Parkway Station at Alice in Cornelland at LEA11 in Second Life. You can use the SL Map link below to visit there. If you’re not a Second Life resident you can still visit either by making your own free account, or we can also provide a “loaner avatar” for your visit.

If you’re a blog author, you can “personalize” your workstation with anything you like: pix, sports beverages, plants, change of clothes, etc. To rez at LEA11 just wear the “VB Friends” group tag:

    I know it is a bit 1-day late, can I still participate?

      Sounds great Nieve! 21 bloggers is better anyway! Then we can have virtual alcohol instead of just the sugar-water Fiona’s been serving!

      You’re on the “list,” and I’ve also set a Treadmill / Computer Workstation up for you at the Avatar Blogger Crossfit gym:
      http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA11/127/166/21

      Welcome aboard Nieve!! 🙂

    Ahh! I forgot to officially join in too. Can I still participate in this as well?http://definingmomentssl.blogspot.com

      Welcome Serenity! Thanks for joining us! I’ve added you to the list above… and also I’ve set up a treadmill desk for you at LEA11:
      http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA11/130/166/21

      As noted above, if you’d like to “personalize” your treadmill, go right ahead. Bring in what you like, and I can also clear the current pix off the desk if you’d like to use your own stuff. Just wear the “VB Friends” group tag to rez at LEA11. It’s free & open to join, and a link to the in-world group is here:
      http://world.secondlife.com/group/1d298c4b-50bb-7003-146f-5f5b8ec68449

      I love that part of your blog is about your child avatar! We’ve done a couple of performance works with child avatars:
      Dec ’09 “Peace” – http://irez.me/portfolio/#vb13
      Feb ’13 “Child Avatar Pride Parade” – http://irez.me/2013/01/20/previz-71-avatar-parade/#child

      For a lot of people child avatars are a lot of fun and joy. I remember back in ’09 for some that was our best performance work.

      But I also know that, surprisingly to me, child avatars “creep out” a lot of people. In both ’09 and Feb of this year I had peeps who’d just been in a number of our pieces tell me they were sitting this one out because they found child avatars “creepy” or “disturbing” or… etc, etc…

      Anyway, glad you’re enjoying that space and blogging about it! 🙂

      Thanks for joining ABC Serenity!

    I need to get back over to my treadmill soon…my bum needs a good workout! I’ve been sitting on it too much – my 9th post in 5 days is scheduled to publish in about 3 hours. I think I need to get off it for a while and check out some of the other blogs!

    • Vaneeesa Blaylock
      2013/06/05 at 04:37 #

      Yessy! Read lots of blawgs! Maybe we should have a blog reading party… 5 minutes on a treadmill… then everybody “hop to your right”

        Yesssssssssss! Maybe a mid-month catch up? 🙂

    Oh whoa, it says I’m in there! :O

    I just spent an unexpected week in the hospital, and I hope that excuses me from missing the first week. Can’t spend too much time behind the pc yet, but I’ll try my best!

    • Vaneeesa Blaylock
      2013/06/07 at 10:55 #

      OMG Rav! Hope you’re doing ok! *sniffle*

      Anyway, yes, Nurse Eva already sent your files over and we’ve added the Rust Hoodie: Blogging w/Courage badge to your workstation. Obviously I wouldn’t stress over it at all. But YAY, your workstation is set to display new posts as they arrive.

      Feel better! 🙂

    YAY! \o/
    I was at LEA11 today and snapped a pic of me working out on the treadmill. Very neat. At my next visit I shall try to personalize my workstation.

      Awesome Orca! As they say in the movies, “This time, it’s personal!”

      See you at the gym!

    I can’t believe I’m on track! I admit I’ve dropped a few times due to RL work, but managed to get back into the swing of things and so far, so good! Yikes!

    • Vanessa Blaylock
      2013/06/27 at 09:03 #

      Aww, Kitty! That’s so awesome, congratulations! If you haven’t already given yourself the latest gold star, go get it!
      http://irez.me/2013/06/22/avatar-blogger-month-day-21-gold-star/

      Also on that gold star page you’ll see that we’re doin a gym photo and finale party both on Saturday. If you’re schedule and the vagaries of world time permit, it’d be so awesome to see you at one or both of these!

      Keep up the great work! 🙂

      xoxo — Van

        2013/06/27 at 09:16 #

        Yay! Another gold star!! As for Saturday, alas, my shift pattern this week has stuffed my weekend up good and proper, I’m on 12 hour days Friday, Saturday and 12 hour nights Monday and Tuesday, so will be unable to make the shoot, which is PANTS. I’ll be there in spirit! xx

        • Vanessa Blaylock
          2013/06/27 at 09:35 #

          Yeah, PANTS! It’s always something!

          BTW, we’re going to setup the ABC Freestore sometime before Saturday. It’ll be a place with… well… you’ll never guess — Free Stuff!

          It’ll have copies of the Treadmill Desks from the Gym and other goodies, plus anyone who wants to contribute anything can add it. So at the party on Saturday, or, you know, any time after that for those who have, like, jobs ‘n stuff, you can go by and pick up stuff. There’ll be an iRez post on it… haha… well… sometime before Saturday (night! 😛

            2013/06/27 at 11:10 #

            Sounds fab! I’ll certainly try to drop by before Saturday, depends how my 12 hours of hell pan out! x

    […] With a night of dancing ahead I didn’t need much encouragement to search the marketplace for the signature fruit bowl headwear. Within moments PB was harnessing her inner Carmen Miranda and feeling every bit the 1950′s samba dancing bombshell. Of course I did wonder if this attire was maybe a little act of revenge for the recent gym workout I subjected Logan to in post 1 of this 30 day blog challenge? […]
