Bagat Blogger VillageĀ 

Bagat_010I’ve been playing around with a largish parcel that I’ve recently bought in Bagat, when I realised what my SL passion was, (as well as writing Proud Ankylosaur to raise awareness of Ankylosing Spondylitis)… I enjoy blogging about Second Life. (Which is a good job since I have this blog!)

But the problem with Second Life blogs is that they’re spread over multiple platforms, WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, Flickr and self hosted options. I’ve struggled to find one central location for all of the talented writers. So I decided to make one. I’ve started building a smallholding with stores that can be used as offices as well as an arcade, market stalls and carts (for advertising from). We have a small Pub, public gardens and outdoor seating.

 

And I’m hoping that I can get some of the community to join me. So if you’re a Second Life Blogger without a space in-world to call your office, and you like the idea of a community of bloggers all wanting to help each other then please come down and see us! At the moment I’ve set out CasperLet rental boxes so that we can keep track of prim counts and the like, but they’re set at L$1/prim/week – I’m not trying to make money out of this, it was just the easiest way that I could think of sub-letting land.

Them and Us

Lots of parcels appear in the Second Life Destination Guide, and every so often I like to visit some of them. I noticed an art installation by Cica Ghost as I was flicking through this evening and thought that it looked interesting. Especially as some of the crowd appear to have a kyphosis (it’s rare to see part of my disability reflected in Second Life).

So I jumped onto the taxi and went to have a look. It’s a barren and desolate landscape over at Sky Atoll and reminded me somewhat of Tim Burton, Post-Apocalyptic and also Steampunk (three things that I actually rather like). Walking through the first small copse of sculptures (which are kind of like a cross between stalagmites, fingers and trees) you come to the crowd, what feels like hundreds of people facing a large UFO. It’s dark, atmospheric and a great example of the thought and feeling-provoking power of Art in Second Life.
